HipHop is part of a youth culture that has emerged in the streets of New York City in the 1970s. Rap, DJing, B-Boying (Breakdance) and Graffity-Writing are the most important elements. HipHop dance was derived from Breakdance and renounced the powerful ground-acrobatic elements. Old School was the first to be divided into Locking, Popping, Waving and Housing. Through films such as «Step Up» a commercialization and popularity took place. Worldwide, HipHop Crews compete in competitions and battles. The Backstage Studio team includes prominent representatives of the HipHop scene in Switzerland.
