    • Created by the African-American youth

  • 2. HIP HOP DANCE
    • Popping

      • From modern funk, jazz and soul
      • It has distinct elements of ‘locking’
      • A flamboyant style that needs some confidence
    Hip Hop dance consists of many types of street dance styles, here are some of my favourites:
  • 2. HIP HOP DANCE
    • Locking
      • Became popular during the 80s
      • Very popular style but very demanding on the body’s muscles
      • When locking, use correct movements
      • Avoid injury and keep your style sharp
    • Krumping
      • Free, expressive, exaggerated, highly energetic movements
      • Using the arms, head, legs, chest and feet
      • Youths started this dance style to escape gang life
      • To release anger and aggression in a positive non-violent way
  • 3. HIP HOP MUSIC
    • Hip hop music became popular in the 70s
    • Combines spoken lyrics that rhyme, a back beat and sometimes vocals
    • Has inspired fashion and lifestyle choices worldwide
    • Hip Hop artists who have done exceptionally well are TLC, Kanye West, P. Diddy, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Lauren Hill and Nelly
    • All the artists mentioned above have produced multi-platinum selling albums
  • 4. HIP HOP FASHION
    • Hip Hop fashion originated with the African-American youth on the streets of New York
    • Complements the expression and attitude of the culture in general
    • Image has changed significantly over the years
    • From baggy, bright coloured tracksuits to designer labels such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Ralph Lauren
    • Many Hip Hop artists such as P. Diddy and Nelly started their own fashion labels and clothing lines in the 90s
  • 5. HIP HOP ART
    • Graffiti has existed since ancient times. It can be anything from simple scratch marks to elaborate wall paintings
    • Became popular in the US in the late 60s
    • Seen as the visual expression of Hip Hop culture
    • Spray paint and markers are usually used to produce these elaborate pieces of art
  • 5. HIP HOP ART
    • Usually found at bus stops, trains, buildings and other public property
    • Some view graffiti as vandalism while others view it as art
    • It become popular with art dealers in the 80s and made it’s way to art galleries in London, Milan and Paris
  • 6. RESULTS OF HIP HOP SURVEY
    • I asked my group whether they liked Hip Hop dance / music or not.
    • The age range of people surveyed was between 16 - 55. The results were a surprise!
    • 60% of 16-25 age group didn’t like Hip Hop
    • 50% of over 40’s group liked the Music / Dance
    • Is this starting a role reversal?
  • 7. Conclusion
    • Hip Hop has spread around the world since it first became popular in the 1970s
    • It is a very good way of keeping fit, socializing and having fun
    • It’s message is always positive and clear “ No drugs, No violence just dance!!! ”
