What is Streetdance?
Street dance is a collective name for dance forms that were originally developed on the street, in clubs and in secondary schools. Street dance originated in New York in the early eighties of the last century. The name comes from the fact that there was a lot of dancing in the streets, mainly in the disadvantaged neighborhoods. Street dance is part of the Hip-hop and Funk dance styles, and the only rule when dancing is that your movements match the music. In Europe, Streetdance only broke through in the 1990s. Street dance had a strong influence on fashion, video clips, DJs, rappers and scratchers, and films were regularly released highlighting the Street Dance subculture. Nowadays Street Dance is taught at dance academies and there are many professional Street Dance teachers who can teach you how to dance well. Street dance classes often use movements derived from movements from video clips, so that the style develops continuously. The hip-hop and R&B music to which Streetdance is danced provide a flashy appearance.
