MUSIC | DANCE | HISTORY
After its inception in the 1970’s, Hip Hop culture exploded into mainstream culture during the 1980’s. Movies, music and fashion all begin to take notice of the new street culture from the Bronx. However, by the 90’s the media had largely abandoned Hip Hop, with the exception of its music. This left the culture split. Parts of it stayed mainstream while others went underground. This left Hip Hop culture divided and unsure about which direction it would take.
T hey 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.

Open Cyphers before each show
The 80’s | The Culture
The 80’s marked Hip Hop’s coming out party to the world. Fueled by the work of Afrika Bambaataa and The Universal Zulu Nation, Hip Hop had now solidified as a culture represented by four main elements. The world was beginning to take notice of the DJ’s, BBoys, Emcee’s and Graffiti writers that were coming out of New York’s boroughs. Hip Hop’s music and dance begins its explosion into main stream culture.
The Journey Continues
The 90’s | The Resurgence
By the 1990’s Hip Hop had begun to divide. Rap was fast becoming one of music’s most dominant genres, but the other elements found themselves left behind. Faced with this division, many of Hip Hop’s elements returned to their underground roots. Hip Hop arts continued to grow and evolve, leading to a resurgence that help make Hip Hop one of the most dominate subcultures in the world today.
