Hip-hop Dancing began in New York City during the 1960s. During this time, people without dance training brought dancing to the streets. The Hip-hop moves were inspired by rhythms and the movement style of African dancing. This art-form began to develop when DJ Herc moved to Brooklyn at the age of 12. He was the first DJ to make unique music by playing two record machines with the same record on both. The rhythms he created were founding elements of Hip-hop Dance-form.
