Street dance is used to describe dance styles that developed outside of dance studios on the streets, in schoolyards and at nightclubs.
Street dancers often make up the routine as they go, and encourage the crowd and the other dancers to interact with them. Street dance is also used to describe all the hip hop and funk dance styles that began appearing in the United States in the 1970s. Most of these styles such as breakdance, popping, locking, hip hop and house dance, are still alive and evolving within the hip hop culture of today, and are seen regularly in music videos.
