 A HIP HOP STORY

In the beginning…there was the DJ and the music. Without these 2 things Hip Hop and its dances would not exist. They Reminisce is an examination of the evolution of Hip Hop dances.

They Reminisce brings together some of Utah’s most talented Choreographers & Dancers.  We took our choreographers and presented them with a question.  If you could choose your top dancers for a piece, what could you create?  The goal was to give them the tools they needed to produce choreo with no compromises.  We believed that by providing the best talent possible that our choreographers would create incredible and unique content.

 ERA 1 | Creation

Hip Hop’s roots lie in the boroughs of New York. During the late 70’s DJ Kool Herc began hosting parties at 1520 Sedgwick Ave. These parties would become the birthplace of Hip Hop and Hip Hop culture. Herc’s way of cutting and mixing the “break” of a record allowed for the creation of the first Hip Hop dance, BBOYING. Bboys or Break Boys would dance to the break of a record.

ERA 2 | The Golden Era

By the 1990’s Hip Hop had grown and expanded. The MC was seeing success in the music industry, Graffiti writers were getting up all over the world and Bboying was joined by Popping, House, and New Jack. Fueled by groups like A Tribe Called Quest, Eric B. & Rakim, Pete Rock & CL Smooth and others, Hip Hop and its dances filled neighborhoods all over the world.

 ERA 3 | The Modern Era

Today, the success of shows like ABDC, SYTYCD and the resurgence of dance themed movies have provided more opportunities for Hip Hop dancers than ever before. Hip Hop choreo as well as dances like Krumping continue to progress and grow along with the ever changing face of Hip Hop. For better or for worse, Hip Hop will continue to grow and evolve and it’s dances will always represent the current state of Hip Hop culture
