What are the classifications of hip-hop dance?
there are many kinds of hip-hop dance. It's embarrassing to see others dance hip-hop, but it's not clear about the kinds of dance. Let's take a look at the common hip-hop dances.
locking lock dance
Locking (lock dance) is a style of funk dance and hip-hop dance, which relies on fast and obvious arm and hand movements, with relatively relaxed hips and legs. These movements are usually large and exaggerated, often very rhythmic and closely combined with music. Lock dance is quite performance oriented. It often interacts with the audience by smiling or clapping hands high. Some movements are quite comic in nature.
The name locking comes from the concept of "lock" action. This concept basically refers to freezing from a very rapid movement, then stopping in a specific posture, briefly maintaining that posture, and then continuing to return to the original speed. Locking involves a lot of stunts and harsh physical activities, such as knee frying and cheating. These movements often require some form of knee protection.
wave current dance
This is a wave movement from the limbs, like an invisible force passing through the whole body. The action of wave is a standard action, which is included in the certain track action of each dance. Start from one place, walk through your palms, arms, through your whole body, and stop at your feet. Different from other dance movements, this movement is smooth and coherent, full of spiritual force and dynamic law.
Jazz dance is a fast and dynamic rhythmic dance. It belongs to an outward dance, unlike an introverted dance shown by classical ballet or modern dance. Jazz dance is an extension of African dance, which was brought to the United States by black slaves, and gradually evolved into a localized and popular dance in the United States. Jazz dance is mainly a kind of dance that pursues pleasure, liveliness and vitality. Its characteristic is that it can dance freely. It does not have to be limited to one form and abide by the inherent posture like the traditional classical ballet. However, it is different from the dance that fully enjoys itself like disco dance. It still has a law in freedom.
popping mechanical dance
Mechanical dance is an action that vibrates different parts of the body. It depends on moving your muscles and joints. It needs a sense of rhythm and needs to cooperate with the pop (mechanical dance) style music. You can do pop by straightening your hand axis, or you can uplift your shoulders to do pop, while other parts of the body remain completely upright.
breaking floor dance
As a branch of break dancing, it attaches importance to special skills. Dancers often use various parts of their body to contact the floor and play tricks. Windmill (windmill, referring to the dancer's back touching the ground as the fulcrum and his feet rotating like a windmill) and headpin (head turning, the dancer's head touching the ground as the fulcrum) are all skill moves, such as the world's breaking group "rock steady crew".
