Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. SWOP is a fusion of swing and hip hop dances, created by person(s) unknown but possible renamed from "Hip-Hop Lindy" to "Swop" by Hinton Battle in 2006. It contains steps from hip hop, break dancing, Lindy Hop and swing air steps (aerials). The exact year of origin of the dance style is unknown, however, record indicate that the style was being taught, danced and discussed as early as 2001. The first mainstream appearance of this new style was in the movie Idlewild in 2006. A performance in the popular TV show "Dancing with the Stars" followed.The relationship between graffiti and hip hop culture arises from the appearance of new and increasingly elaborate and pervasive forms of the practice in areas where other elements of hip hop were evolving as art forms, with a heavy overlap between those who wrote graffiti and those who practiced other elements of the culture.show more
