Hip hop is an urban dance style that has become increasingly popular in recent years. Hip hop is creative and expressive, and is originally from the streets of the Bronx, New York. Hip Hop dance is primarily danced to hip hop music.

The original Hip Hop dancing was breakdancing which became a cornerstone of hip hop as a culture. In the 1990\'s, as hip hop music developed and changed, new dance styles began appearing, mostly danced in an upright manner as opposed to breakdance with its many ground moves.

Hip hop can include breaking, popping, locking, and free styling. It is great for musicality, strength, body balance, and flexibility. Similar to that of the movies Honey and You Got Served.
