Street Dance is a general term that describes a variety of dance styles. Its origin can be traced back to the early 19th century as it is heavily influenced by Folk, Tap, and Jazz Dance moves. The cultural significance of Street Dance is that it is derived from, and championed by, everyday people and communities ‘in the street’, as opposed to being crafted in a dance studio environment.
