Street Dance Classes

Street dance is an umbrella term used to describe dance styles that evolved outside of dance studios in everyday spaces such as streets, school yards and nightclubs. They are often improvisational and social in nature, encouraging interaction and contact with the spectators and the other dancers.

Street dance is also commonly used specifically for the many hip hops and funk dance styles that began appearing in the United States in the 1970s, and are still alive and evolving within hip hop culture today: such as breakdance, popping, locking, hip hop new style and house dance. These dances are popular on levels, as a form of physical exercise, an art form, or for competition, and are today practised both at dance studios and other spaces. Some schools use street dance as a form of physical education.
