This studio practice course introduces students to Hip Hop culture and dance, aiming to broaden students’ understanding of Hip Hop beyond the commercialized representations prevalent in the media. Through the study of classic Hip Hop dance styles, students expand their awareness of connections among various dance forms, including Capoeira, Tap, Lindy Hop and Salsa movements. Students learn how Hip Hop dance styles developed within specific community contexts, and consider similarities and differences between previous trends and today’s social exchanges in dance. Required readings, videos, and occasional performances explore historical and theoretical perspectives on Hip Hop, supporting an immersive studio practice. Space is limited and priority is given to dance majors and minors.
