What is hip hop dance style music?
A hip hop dance dance style music is an original hip hop dance style in which the instrumentation and rhythm (bass, drum, guitar or percussion), but not the technique or the style, varies significantly from those used in the original recording studio, dance studio or nightclubs. Hip hop dance style style is not simply a specific style of dance, it is an entire style that is characterized by specific sounds, rhythms and musical expressions. Because it doesn’t fit into the existing dance style standards, hip hop dance style music has not been recognized by the government or by local law enforcement to be legal. However, a number of groups, including the San Jose Hip Hop Association, the Santa Clara Hip Hop Coalition, and the Hip Hop Culture Movement, has worked to educate other local, state, and federal government agencies to provide legal protections to the music which is created and promoted by these groups. Hip hop dance style music is made accessible to the public through public performances, online music networks and websites, and a number of independent publications.

The Bay Area HipHop Association’s first official hip hop dance style music program (released in 1983) was a five page flyer in a small group of nightclubs and entertainment venues in San Jose, CA, but was quickly found to be not adequate and that the group’s membership had grown and now consisted of more than 80 artists in 23 states, including California, and Canada. (It’s now a nonprofit organization and works with clubs that produce their own version of the program; it’s not licensed in California). This newsletter, featuring original music and choreography, was put out by the Bay Area HipHop Association for a very limited time.
