The topic is always there. What is Hiphop Dance? We all have an opinion on what we feel Hiphop is and what dance styles are part of the culture. While we may have the opinion, the truth is our opinions hold little value because we are not the creators, pioneers or historians of the culture.
Legendary pioneer and historian Mr. Wiggles of the Rock Steady Crew, recently spoke out on this topic and we at The Bboy Spot strongly endorse his stand on whats “Hiphop Dance”.
Thank you Mr. Wiggles for taking a stand and speaking up. It’s a hard thing to do because it rubs people the wrong way and at times it can cost gigs or industry work when
you start speaking up against the norm. We as community need to speak up against dance studios, events or dance festivals using the “Hiphop” name, but not representing the culture. Not only is the name being used solely for profit, it keeps promoting the ignorance and confusion of what Hiphop truly is.
