Hip hop is a dance style, usually danced to hip hop music, that evolved from the hip-hop culture. The first dance associated with hip hop was break dancing. While break dancing consists primarily of moves executed close to the ground, the majority of hip hop moves are done standing up. Hip hop developed from several cultures, including jazz, rock, tap and American and Latino cultures. Hip hop is a very energetic form of dancing. It is unique in that it allows its dancers to perform with freedom of movement, adding in their own personalities.
