In fact, many consider break dancing to be the very first form of hip hop dance.
Old school hip hop dancing is still cherished today within many dance circles, as vintage is always cool and shows that a dancer is proficient in more than one style of technique.

With the dawn of the 1990s, hip hop music developed new rhythms and styles, and the dance moves changed right along with it.
Some describe the new school hip hop dancing as more "aggressive" and methodical in its movements, while also including such signature moves like krumping.

The World Hip Hop Championships held in the U.S. is arguably the "purest" competition for just hip hop dancers.
These competitions are often televised, bringing hip hop dancers into everyday homes and turning dancers such as Marc Bamuthi Joseph (a performance artist and hip hop dancer) into household names.
While the popularity of the form has led to it being taught in dance schools and studios throughout the U.S., there is some argument as to how much of this is actually "hip hop."

Hip hop dance was born in the streets and is a highly improvisational form, which incorporates moves from lindy hop, Brazilian capoeira, jazz, tap, West Coast funk and even James Brown.
These early hip hop dance forms are known as old school, while everything that developed since then is called new school.

This presents a problem for people hoping to learn hip hop dance: what is authentic?

Perform these movements to a specific beat, a legitimate hip hop song, and it could be said that the dancers had gotten their money's worth from these hip hop dance classes.

One of the great things about hip hop is that there is usually not a huge cost to get appropriate clothing or equipment.
Most hip hop dancers wear flat-soled sneakers when they dance, and the most special equipment is usually something like kneepads or a hat if the class is advanced enough to offer something like headspins.
One thing is for certain: hip hop dance is an art form accessible to anyone with the passion and drive to make it part of their dance repertoire.
Hip hop dance schools as such don't really exist in many places.

The first step is not to do a google search for "hip hop dance classes" with your city in it.
That will show many dance studios that claim to have hip hop in the curriculum, and a few of them might actually teach quality classes - but there's no way to tell through google ads.

After that the moves head much more towards the world of hip hop, with many hip thrusts, contractions, shimmies, and the like.
While the moves are standard jazz and hip hop, the shoes are definitely not standard - in fact, for most non-professional dancers, they would be dangerous.
Learning the dance can be done without either just trying to learn it by imitation, or going all the way into taking jazz and hip hop classes.

Some, like Hip Hop Dance Spot, have professional dance teachers and performers on videos ranging from general techniques to specific move-by-move routines.
The site does charge for membership, but it has more than hip hop videos.
Other communities such as Hip Hop Pow provide content for free, but it's going to not be as robust as the other, paid sites.
