What is Hip-hop dance?

Since the very beginnings of Hip-hop, this dance style has been embraced by the younger generations, but what exactly is Hip-hop dance?

Hip-hop is an extremely popular dance style among boys and girls alike. YouTube videos and TV programmes (such as Dance Dance Dance, Holland’s Got Talent, AVRO Junior Dance, etc.) helped promote this dance style and led to an enormous increase in its popularity in the last couple of years.

What makes Hip-hop so special and popular is that it doesn’t have any standard rules or techniques. Everybody can create their own version of Hip-hop. This dance style continues to actively develop due to a range of sub-styles: popping, locking, waving, housing, breakdancing, waacking, krumping, bonebreaking and new style.
