4 Things About Hip Hop Dance That The Media Hasn’t Told You!

I am breaking some of the myths in this article that have been in this domain for a very long time and after reading this article you will be aware of the points that the media has not told you about hip hop dance.

Points:-

Breakdance

Or

Bboying/Breaking?

It’s time to find out the difference between terms like a breaker and breaking when compared to breakdancer and breakdancing.

The terms breakdancer and breakdancing were coined by the media when they discovered the dance of breaking. some outlets discovered the kids who were breaking and said they were breakdancing and so-called them breakdancers.

So, Breakdance is a commercial term the actual term is the Breaking and a practitioner of this dance is called a B-boy, B-girl, or breaker. 

Hip Hop Dance Or Sports

Many of the dance forms like Popping, House, Locking come in the umbrella of HipHop but the core dance form has always been breaking

Just because of its (Breaking) athletic nature you can’t say that it sports, It is not a sport it is an art form that leads to creativity and it has four elements Toprock, Footwork, Powermove, and Freeze.

B-boy means a boy who dances on breakbeats.

Conclusion

I have seen these misconceptions among people like how subconsciously they are repeating these mistakes and some big dance companies are making money by the name of hip hop where the real artists are still hustling in the underground.
