Hip hop dance is an energetic dance style requiring athleticism. The dance style requires quick movements in all planes, creating an almost illusion-like performance. There are a variety of classic dance moves, including bopping, roboting, locking, krumping, popping, turfin, breaking, and jerkin.
Although Hip Hop shares some similarities with Jazz, they are certainly two different styles of dance. It’s inevitable that different dance genres will have somewhat of an influence on other dance styles, but they still remain distinct.
