BRINGING HIP-HOP BACK TO THE DANCE WORLD
19‘70s: it began on the coasts; ‘90s: it took a back seat to gangsta rap; now: hip-hop dance is back. Through popular television shows like America’s Best Dance Crew and feature films such as Step Up and Stomp the Yard, the hip-hop dance revolution has re-energized the dance world. Movmnt takes you to the heart of the battle with a stunning fashion editorial captured by fine art photographer Koury Angelo. Featuring performers and choreographers from Monsters of Hip-Hop, Movmnt tells the story of hip-hop dancers in their fight to steal hip-hop back from the music world. Created in 2002, Monsters of Hip Hop uses some of the best choreographers in the business to provide dancers with the education, experience, and performance opportunities to immerse themselves into the world of hip-hop at nationwide conventions. Movmnt talks with young choreographer Tony Testa about his inspiration, contributions, and successes in the world of hip-hop dance.
