HIP HOP 

Hip-hop dance is a street dance style which developed as part of Hip-hop culture. Hip-hop culture is the embodiment of four important elements: Breaking, Rapping(MCing, Beatboxing), Graphite and Djing. It started as an underground movement as a counter culture against a very racist and discriminating society. Hip-hop dance evolved in the streets of The Bronx, New York, in the early 1970s, in the African American communities.The various styles associated with Hip-hop dance are Breaking, Locking, Popping, Old School etc. What distinguishes Hip-hop from other forms of dance is that it is often “freestyle” which means it is improvisational in nature. Hip-hop dance crews and individuals engaged in freestyle dance competitions, also known as “battles”.

Hip Hop – An Introduction

The term “Hip Hop” is a combination of two words, “Hip” which means current or in the know and “Hop” as in the jumping movement.

They say that Hip-Hop as a musical genre and as an artistic dance form originated somewhere in the Bronx in New York during the 1970’s. Hip Hop originally was a creative expression of the suburban African-American and Hispanic-American communities but gradually spread across communities, regions and countries and is now popular among dance enthusiasts around the world.

Hip Hop music began when DJs started experimenting with rhythmic beats in loops, then with rap vocals, hard-hitting lyrics and beatboxing. All this accompanied with deep bass, innovative guitar strumming and high-end sound effects.

While this new kind of music was gaining acceptance and popularity, particular complimentary styles of dressing, dance and art were also making way into the lives of fans. This is how Hip Hop as a dance form and Graffiti as an art form came into being. Today, music, dance and graffiti, all are essentials part of the Hip-Hop culture.

Hip Hop in Delhi

India has a big pool of a young population. With the establishment of good infrastructure and latest technology, at least in the major cities, easy access to global television and internet is now commonplace. This has brought information and knowledge about diverse cultures, global trends, world music and dance etc. within the reach of millions and millions of Indians over the past 2 decades.

Hip Hop culture in terms of music and dance started influencing the Indian youth in the early 1990’s and glimpses of Hip Hop started appearing in the Indian Pop Music industry and the Bollywood movie industry. Hip Hop music and dance have been growing in India ever since. The popularity of Hip Hop as a dance form can be seen on a plethora of dance reality shows that have flooded the Indian television in recent times.

At present, as a dance form, Hip Hop in Delhi is a mix of different kinds of professional, experimental and freestyle dancing. Delhi attracts youth from all over the country who bring their own flavour of Hip Hop dancing to the table. This has created an interesting genre of Hip Hop in Delhi which is, of course, majorly influenced by the western media, music videos, movies and t.v. shows but also includes a tinge of Bollywood and Indian contemporary. In recent years, many dance schools have come up in Delhi to teach and promote Hip-Hop. This is a good sign for the fans of Hip-Hop and for those who want to explore this new age culture.

How can I lose weight?
You lose weight when you consume or burn more calories than you take. Burning 3500 calories means you lose 1 lbs or 450 grams (almost half a Kilo) of weight.

In other words, if you cut 500 calories from your diet each day or burn 500 calories working out or dancing, you would lose 0.45 kgs in a week. :)

At Delhi Dance Academy we can also talk to you about your daily diet and recommend changes to help you lose weight.
