Dance is an art form that generally refers to movement of the body, usually rhythmic and to music, used as a form of expression, social interaction or presented ina spiritual or performance setting. Dance movements may be without significance in themselves, such as in ballet or European folk dance, or have a gestural vocabulary or symbolic systemas in many Asian dances. Dance can embody or express ideas, emotions or tell a story.
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!
