“Hip-hop gave a generation a common ground that didn't require either race to lose anything; everyone gained.” ― Jay-Z, Decoded HipHop 

Originating in the New York City ghettos especially the Bronx in the 1970s, the hip hop dance has since taken the world by storm from the streets to the dance studios.  It is also prevalent on social media groups like YouTube and Facebook, in the movies and on TV.

African-Americans were seen dancing on the streets to vent their anger and frustration. There were mixed influences from African-American, Jamaican and Latino. Block parties often had the DJs playing popular genre of music especially funk and soul. 

Hip Hop Classes Singapore

Hip hop as a dance can be divided into 2 broad categories: old school and new school hip hop. Old school hip hop includes styles like break dancing where they are known for moves like the windmills, head spins and moonwalk. On the other hand, new school hip hop comprises of styles like krump and whacking.  

Modern day HipHop classes typically draws its inspiration from the wide variety of old and new hiphop dance moves, creating unique styles in Singapore and around the world.

The attire of most hip hop dancers is casual street wear and it has altered with growing and fading fashion trends. In general, they wear baggy shirts and pants in outstanding colours with caps. Just like in the past, where this dance can be danced on the streets, the outfit preserves the essence of the hip hop culture.
