Hip hop dance refers to dance styles, mainly street dance styles, primarily danced to hip hop
music, or that have evolved as a part of the hip hop culture.
The first and original dance associated with hip hop is breakdance, which appeared in New
York City during the early 1960s and truly became a element of hip hop as a culture. In the
1990s, as hip hop music took new forms, new dance styles began appearing, most of them
danced in an upright manner in contrast to breakdance with its many ground moves.
These later styles are sometimes referred to as new school or new style while the older styles,
including breakdance and various funk styles that were incorporated into hip hop, are considered
old school.
One of hip hop's latest stiles is cramping which is very popular in the world mostly danced by
teenage boys.

hop, today almost all the well know singers (eminem, dido etc.)
