DIVERSITY WEEK HISTORY OF HIP HOP DANCE

Posted 9th Mar 2021
Author Leah Fleming (President)

Despite the negativity and tumult in the South Bronx, Hip Hop heads were able to rise above their environment and create a positive form of release. Instead of substances and violence, their energy was redirected to values like originality, creativity, identity, respect, and community. 

The same way that our religious, ethnic, familial backgrounds inform our way of being in the world. Hip Hop was the way that people could be in a way that felt right to them. Deejaying, Emceeing, Breaking and Dancing, and Graffiti, weren't just hobbies, they were sanctuaries, as much as the art forms within Hip Hop have evolved over the decades, the core tenants of the culture remain. 

DIVERSITY WEEK HISTORY OF HIP HOP DANCE

Posted 9th Mar 2021
Author Leah Fleming (President)

The Bronx in the 70's, was a rough, dangerous place to grow up. The youth were surrounded by drugs, crime, poverty, gang violence, and overall struggle, yet they were best neglected by mainstream institutions. 

Desperate for a way to escape their everyday struggles, they invented their own art forms. These art forms, which the youth embodied in the way they dressed, talked, moved, and expressed themselves, soon became a lifestyle. A way to live. The lifestyle and culture became known as hip Hop. 

DIVERSITY WEEK HISTORY OF HIP HOP DANCE

HISTORY OF HIP HOP DANCE. 

Hip Hop is a style of Dance with a deep historical and social root in American African Culture.

It's part of a whole culture of Hip Hop, which started in the 1970's in the Bronx, New York.

Author Leah Fleming

As we all isolate at home, we reflect on what we experienced this time last week at Dance Intervarsities. We are so unbelievably proud of every single one of our dancers who competed last week at Intervarsities, regardless of results you all did MU Dance so so proud on that stage!

Not to mention we came THIRD place in mixed piece! Congratulations to our mixed piece crew who cane 3rd place, it was such a tough competition on the day and we are so so proud of you all!


We are so blown away by the level of professionalism, sportsmanship, and talent in which we witnessed over the few days, you were all so supporting of each other and of other colleges, I didn’t think it was possible to morph into an even bigger family than what we were, but there is always room at the in...for anyone. We hope you are all resting up, washing your hands, and minding yourselves at this difficult time, we have so so much hope that we will all be reunited super super soon.
