 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.

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.

 

Brand New Show For 2016

Come see us July 8-9!

 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.
