Hip Hop

Transcript: What we'll talk about: Hip Hop Dance is a sport, and dancers must take their sport seriously to prevent injuries. Hip hop involves extreme movements, so it's important to warm up and stretch the spine, the legs, thighs, calves, ankles, feet, arms, shoulders, neck and wrists--hip hop involves the entire body, so do a thorough warm up. If it's cold outside or in the studio, warm up becomes even more important. If the muscles are cold and tense, there's a greater risk of injury while dancing. Dance studios are typically warm for this reason and use fans to circulate the air. Learn hip hop dance movements correctly. The way a dancer connects from one movement to another must be done technically correct so as not to twist the body incorrectly, damaging a knee, pulling a muscle or spraining something. Prevent dance injuries by video taping your dancing, to see and correct bad dance technique before it becomes a habit. Dancing, done incorrectly, after a time will lead to injuries and may end your ability to dance. Where you do hip hop dancing is a major factor in preventing a dance injury. Dance floors are designed to absorb some of the impact for a dancer's body and joints. Your risk of injury goes way up when you are doing hip hop on the street or tile floor. If you are planning a street performance, go prepared with dance mats that can be rolled out for the hip hop dancers to perform on. Vogue or voguing is a highly stylized, modern house dance that evolved out of the Harlem ballroom scene in the 1960s. It gained mainstream exposure when it was featured in Madonna's song and video "Vogue" (1990) and when showcased in the 1990 documentary Paris is Burning (which went on to win the Grand Jury Prize at the 1991 Sundance Film Festival). After the new millennium, Vogue returned to mainstream attention when the dance group Vogue Evolution competed on the fourth season of America's Best Dance Crew. B-boying, often called "breakdancing", is a popular style of street dance that was created and developed as part of hip-hop culture among African Americans and Latino youths in New York City. The dance consists of four primary elements: toprock, downrock, power moves and freezes. It is danced to both hip-hop and other genres of music that are often remixed to prolong the musical breaks. The musical selection for b-boying is not restricted to hip-hop music as long as the tempo and beat pattern conditions are met. A practitioner of this dance is called a b-boy, b-girl, or breaker. These dancers often participate in battles, formal or informal dance competitions between two individuals or two crews. Although the term "breakdance" is frequently used, "b-boying" and "breaking" are the original terms used to refer to the dance. These terms are preferred by the majority of the art form’s pioneers and most notable practitioners. In hip hop and electronica, a short break is also known as a "cut", and the reintroduction of the full bass line and drums is known as a "drop", which is sometimes accented by cutting off everything, even the percussion. Improper Warm-Up Breakdancing The Waacking style of street dance traces its roots back to gay and nightclub cultures. In the United States, at gay nightclubs, male performers dressed as women and performed to female songs on stage. Waacking evolved prior to house music's popularity and is considered a house dance since it was popular amongst nightclubs (also known as houses). “Waacking” is mostly done to Disco Music. The Waacking/Punk style of street/club dance, can trace its roots back to the nightclub culture of the late 60's in New York City. Disco Music was the perfect vehicle for Waacking, with its driving rhythms and hard beats. In the early 1970s in Los Angeles, dancer Lamont Peterson was one of the first to start using his arms and body to the music. Dancers such as Mickey Lord, Tyrone Proctor and Blinky fine tuned the arms movements, by making the arms and hands go fast to the driving disco beat. At the time Waacking was primarily a Black and Latino dance. Many people mistakenly believe that “Waacking” came from “Locking” because some of the movements are very similar. Although waacking and Locking do have some similarities, they are different dances. Waacking/Punking is the original name of the dance, and also pre dates the east coast vogue. Popping is a street dance and one of the original funk styles that came from California during the 1960s-70s. It is based on the technique of quickly contracting and relaxing muscles to cause a jerk in the dancer's body, referred to as a pop or a hit. This is done continuously to the rhythm of a song in combination with various movements and poses. difference between popping and locking. popping Locking is when they hold the position for a second or two (a small freeze) before moving. popping is a flexing and the accent on the release Injuries 5 Ways to Prevent Common Hip Hop Injuries Wear and Tear Overload Waacking Attention to Time Frame

Hip Hop

Transcript: It is a cultural movement best known for its impact on music in the form of the musical genre of the same name. The four main pillars of hip-hop are DJing, rapping, breakdancing, and graffiti art. Five more pillars that are sometimes added: hip-hop fashion, beatboxing, hip-hop slang, street knowledge, and street entrepreneurship. To this day, we still use those pillars for the different Hip Hop songs. The target audience back when it was first created was a geographically, racially and socially concentrated group of people. But the target audience of the music now is, younger people in general. Anywhere from teens to early 30s. It's not directed to a certain race nor ethnicity. Description Hip hop is focused a lot on the beat and groove. The beat is usually a bass drum that is tuned low and hits hard. Drum machines are usually used to create the beat. Some of the more popular drum machines are the Roland TR-808, TR-909, and E-MU Mo Phatt. But some of the other things used to create Hip hop music is samplers, synthesizers, and microphones. Dr. Dre : "I Need A Doctor" Many sub groups have been created thanks to hip hop. Not only that, but hip hop has also influenced fashion. It has also influenced numerous languages around the world. I believe that hip hop will be around for a very long time and will continue to influence the society years from now.
