This course is an introductory practice overview of Hip Hop dance drawing from the early 1970s to the present. Through the use of movement practice and visual aids, this course will critically examine the Hip Hop dance vernacular historically, anatomically and emotionally. Styles covered in the class will include traditional styles such as Locking, Popping and House fundamentals, as well as more current 'party dances' and their connection to African dance. This course will also look at Hip Hop dance forms from an evolutionary perspective with a focus on changes over time and space.
