Hip Hop Skills Sharing Weekend

"The thing about Hip Hop today is it's smart, it's insightful. The way they can communicate a complex message in a very short space is remarkable." Barack Obama

Hip-Hop Culture

Hip-hop developed from several cultures including jazz, rock, tap, and American and Latino cultures. Hip-hop is a very energetic form of dancing. It is unique in that it allows its dancers to perform with freedom of movement, adding in their own personalities. The hip-hop culture is influenced by the following four elements: Turntabling (DJ-ing), Graffiti (art), MCs (rappers & spoken word), and B-boys and B-girls (Dance)
