Hip hop is currently one of the most popular dance trends globally. It can be seen in many popular films and most music videos. This style requires an enormous amount of energy and hours of hard work. The ability for groups to work in unison and display tricks all comes down to team work.
Hip hop as a dance style originated on the streets. It is a more informal dance style where the rules are bendable. The dance style is unique in the sense that it allows the dancers to perform with freedom of movement, adding their own personalities.
