Hip-hop camps for kids this summer

Hip-hop is a style that has been rapidly growing in popularity and now competes with the leading dance styles. But what is hip-hop?

Let’s learn a little more… Who knows, you might then even think about enrolling your child in one of Dance to EvOLvE‘s awesome hip hop summer camps in San Diego, Chicago or Cleveland.

This relatively new American dance style debuted in the late 1960s with the advent of hip-hop music. The craze spread in the ’70s with the rise of professional street crews, who were not conventionally trained dancers. 

Interestingly enough, hip-hop styles evolved differently on the different coasts. The east coast is where hip-hop developed. It’s known for the style of breaking. Meanwhile the west coast is known for artists being more robotic with their movements.

Something that both of these coasts had in common was the formal and informal competitions of the ’80s. At these competitions, dancers pushed themselves to their creative limit to show off their own personalized technique and tricks.

In the next decade, hip-hop started to break into the mainstream fad dances. Moves such as the running man, the worm, and the cabbage patch were very popular in the ’90s and coincided with revamped hip-hop music culture. People who were not “hip-hop dancers” started to learn these moves, and in doing so, propelled the status of the dance further into popular culture. 

Moving into the 21st century, the style remains at the forefront of the dance scene. As the style continues to evolve dancers are constantly upping the ante as hip hop has become a mainstay in popular culture.
