Hip Hop/ Street

These styles of dance have become popular with the release of films such ‘Save the Last Dance’ and the ‘Step Up’ franchise. Both Hip Hop and Streetdance take popular music and choreograph dance routines based on their rhythms and beats. Obviously with Hip Hop dance this mainly applies to the Hip Hop music and has evolved as part of hip hop culture. Hip Hop dancing includes locking and popping as well as other freestyle moves.  The success of many top T.V. artistes has been enhanced by the way in which they have combined Streetdance with the lyrics and tune of their hit.
