Dance Style History

Hip Hop was born in the Bronx in the late 1960’s, early 1970’s. There are many versions of the early history but it is generally agreed upon that the culture was in existence before the name Hip Hop was coined by Afrikaa Bambatta, one of the leaders of the Black Spades - a gang that ran the south Bronx. Afrikaa Bambata (known also as Bam) organized the ZULU NATION - based on the ideas of Peace, Love, Respect, Unity, Knowledge and Having Fun, and he tied the Zulu Nation to the emerging urban culture which he later named Hip Hop.

Class Focus
