Hip-hop culture is based mainly on music and dance. Hip-hop has developed new styles and specific moves and techniques, but the cornerstone of the style is undoubtedly break dancing. Over time, that so-called old school way of dancing and participating in hip-hop culture has evolved into many different off-shoots. Funk dancing, popping and locking, jigging, freaking, krump and hyphy are examples of types of hip-hop dance. Each style contains certain moves that distinguish it from other forms. Hip-hop is also a form of music heavily based on spoken-word poetry and rap.
