Title: Street dance ako kultúrny a spoločenský fenomén
Author: Eunika Šviderská – Alena Čierna

Abstract: Street Dance as a Cultural and Social Phenomenon

The origination of the hip-hop subculture can be situated to the 1970s and Bronx, borough of New York, whose multicultural environment offered a kind of a “seedbed” for formation of new subcultures, hip-hop including. The hip-hop subculture became the expressive means of a certain social youth group and the only ways of its spreading were street meetings and organization of events in the ghetto clubs called blockparties, where DJs created hip-hop music, dancers danced to it and rappers rapped. Hip-hop is an internally structured complex comprising many elements. Four elements (or 4 Elements) can be considered original: Djing, MCing (according to some opinions joined also by the fifth element “beatbox”), Graffiti and B-boying (breakdancing). Street dance was an inseparable part of the hip-hop subculture. Originally from blockparties it soon crossed the borders of the American continent and expanded to Europe and Japan. In her contribution the author offers a detailed description of basic street dance steps and division into five basic dance styles: breaking, locking, popping, hip-hop and house. The closing chapter brings a concise development of the street dance in Slovakia.
