Hip Hop is a creative form of street dance that consists of various fast paced choreographed routines. It helps build strength, stamina, coordination, and muscle memory. It is a very fun and energetic dance that has become very popular now in music videos, movies and many other types of performances.
In the 1990s, as hip hop music evolved, it got slower, heavier and more aggressive. This modern hip hop music has given birth to new styles of hip hop dancing, many of them focusing on upright dancing as opposed to break dancing which is better known for its floor-oriented movements. Many of the newer styles are a common sight in today’s music videos on television channels such as MTV.
