Dancing has evolved many styles. Breakdancing and Krumping are related to the hip hopculture. African dance is interpretative. Ballet, Ballroom, Waltz, and Tango are classical styles of dance while Square Dance and the Electric Slide are forms of step dances.In this essay I am going to talk about the OLD SCHOOL. Originally the term was first used to differentiate between Break-Dancing and Hip-Hop.
Old School is a term thatoriginated sometime in the very early 1990's with the introduction of Hip-Hop (which was the dance anyone could do, originally consisting of foot-work and had its roots injazz-funk). Old School refers back to 1984 when break-dancing was at its prime, because so many moves had to be studied and practiced just as one would learn in school.
Given the newpopularity of Hip-Hop in the early 1990's, many of the younger generations only learned how to perform the Hip-Hop moves (those who only knew Hip-Hop were refered to as theNew-School).
The street´s dances are a conclusion of the OLD SCHOOL, because this is the principal kind of dance. Though all the styles have their owns beats of the musicall have something in common, they want to express their feelings!
