It’s like nothing you’ve ever imagined. It’s a high that leaves you in a daze. Streetdance isn’t just any other dance. It’s the kind of dance where no technique is specific, so you just have to remember to move your limbs and let all emotion out. Show that swagger. Throw in that attitude.
Forget the studio! It’s time to hit the streets!
Considered as urban folk dance, streetdance is basically created from improvisation and grown, not in studios, but on the streets and in local stomping grounds.
To give you a bit of history, the term streetdance has been around since the early 20th century. It was initially used to describe African-American cultural dance which was developed outside of the four walls of the structure.
In places like New York, the UK, and Australia, the locals themselves have their own versions of the dance, but essentially it’s grown from the social setup of the street. Since then, streetdance has developed into so many different versions, spiced up with flavors from the different cities it sprung in.
