Write a 4-page research paper on any aspect of Hip Hop Dance.  You may use Internet sources, and live interviews as  well as book references. References in MLA format must be attached at the end and are in addition to your 5 pages.  Include information regarding the history and social components of the dance form.  Please also describe specific movements from the dance and any other information your research uncovers.  I encourage you to reference the material we have learned in class in order to support your research. Please remember your topic must focus primarily on Hip Hop Dance.  While it will most often be appropriate to include a discussion of the musical evolution that drove the development of hip hop dance, you must center your paper on the dance form and not the music.


Suggested Topics:  History of Break Dance, History of Popping and Locking, History of Hip Hop, Uprock vs. Downrock
