Firstly What is Street Dance & Hip Hop Dance All About?
Street dancing, like any other form of dance has steadily evolved as an art movement in itself, an expression of African American cultures flowing together of various modern dance styles including jazz, funk and hip hop - Street dancing is just a broad umbrella term that describes a range of funk styles that have grown from the USA since the 1970s.
Hip hop dancing which as another term for Street Dancing encompasses many different street dance styles, all offering a great way of working out the body through fun and rhythmic exercise. With its popularity quickly increasing outside of the US.
Hip hop dancing encompasses a wide range of street dance styles, set to the beats of hip hop music.
Street Dance Workshop
Popular forms of street dance & hip hop dance include break-dance, popping, locking and house dance. It is known as street dance because it was developed over the years, by passionate professional and freestyle dancers, at informal dance offs and gatherings on the streets and in nightclubs.
The unique characteristic of street dancing is that it is not strict in its rules as to what exactly should constitute street dance and a street dancer is open to use his own personal style and influences in the steps. Street dancing styles nowadays include everything from break dancing to house and electronic dances to even influences from world cultures.
Street dancing has indeed taken the world by storm with a number of movies and television shows being made on this subject. Music artistes like James Brown and Michael Jackson were the first artistes to inspire these dances and get them noticed in the mainstream.

Moves We Teach in Our Street Dance Workshops
B-boying or Break dancing: Breaking or B-boying is a part of the main dances of hip hop along with popping and locking. Break dance includes four basic steps, toprock, which is done standing up with lot of footwork, downrock which also involves footwork but with your body supported with your hands on the floor, freezes, which are stylish poses done with your weight on your hands and power moves which include challenging acrobatic tricks like the flare (where the dancer rests his body on his hands and brings his legs around for a 360 degree turn), windmill (where the dancer turns on the floor with his legs up in the air in a v-shape and with the help of his shoulders, back or hands) or the headspin.
Locking: It is a dance style that involves a series of quick moves followed by sudden pause. It is different from popping in the respect that in locking, the pose is held for a longer period of time. It is quite comical and is often addressed to the audience.
Popping: It is another of the funk dance styles that evolved in California in the 1970s. It involves quick stiffening and then relaxing of muscles in a series to make an illusion of flow or movement. It was created by the popping group known as the Electric Boogaloos. It includes a number of popular dance styles including robotting, miming, crazy legs and slides (like the moonwalk).
House Dance: House dance is so called because it was developed "in-house" in popular nightclubs in the early eighties. It incorporates a number of styles including African, Jazz, Latin and even tap dance.
Electro Dance: Also called tecktonik, is a style of street dancing that originated in France, primarily from a club called Metropolis in the early 2000s. It uses a blend of all the above styles along with disco dance styles.
What Happens in a Street Dance Workshop?
During the street dance workshop our facilitators will teach few common street dance moves for beginners and step by step instructions on how to do the dance moves.
These street workshops are for beginners but we can customise the workshop to be appropriate for all ages. No experience is necessary for the workshop, we do recommend clothes and footwear and you are ready to begin dancing.
Street Fit Lower Body Workout
- It is the most fundamental move in break dancing. It is a form of downrock which means that the body is close to the ground and is supported by the hands. It starts by being in the push-up position with legs spread apart.
- Lift your left hand and place your right hand in its place.
- Now your weight should be on your right hand and foot. The left leg should now be placed in the right behind the right knee.
- Swing your right leg around and bring it in front of the right hand so that you are in the crab pose. At the same time, move your left hand back to the ground, and your right hand up.
- Swing your left leg in a wide arc and wrap it around your right leg.
- Now move the right leg back to its spot in the first step.
- Now, finally pull your left leg back and place your right hand down to come back to your starting position.
- It is an example of a break dance freeze move, where you place your body parallel to the ground but your hands straight.
- To do this move, lie flat on your stomach and place your hands on your sides.
- Now place your palms, pointing away from your body perpendicularly and lift yourself off the ground. Bend your knees for balance.
Toyman or Tutting:
- This style is very simple but needs good coordination and creative arrangement.
- The main thing you have to do here is to maintain a 90 degree angle in your joints.
- It is a form of popping and you should create the illusion that you can only move at right angles. It is inspired from action figures and Egyptian symbols.
- This is part of popping and gives the illusion that a wave is moving across your body.
- This might need you to practice in front of a mirror. Though this is not physically demanding it can be pretty confusing at first.
- The armwave is pretty easy, and you will have to hold both your arms out, perpendicular to your body and sideways.
- Now, slowly starting with your fingertips, lift and then lower each part, moving from your elbow to the chest which you could move forward or backward, so that it looks like a wave is passing through, until you reach the other hand.
- Make sure the rest of your body is motionless and the only movement is the wave.

".... I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work at the xl Celebration Event. The feedback for the Street Dance Workshops I have had so far has been amazing and if it hadn’t been for your positive attitude on the day and the flexibility to work with such a large and varied group of young people the event wouldn't have gone as well as it did. Hope you enjoyed the day also and hope you won’t mind us getting in touch for the next xl Celebration Event!"
