WTF is Lyrical HIP HOP? >=/
WTF is Lyricial HIP HOP?
And is it actually done to HIP HOP Music?

WTF????

What is Lyrical HIP HOP? I have no freakin clue, looks like West Side Story Mixed with bad 90's party dance, and Wack Popping. Bad Jazz and Bad HIP HOP = This Shiet! =/ What makes it worst is that it does not just effect the HIP HOP Dance community, but it also Hurts the REAL JAZZ Dance Community. This type of hybrid should only be experimented on by Purists, and then should be given a separate name!! Like the ones that exists. IE STREET JAZZ or JAZZ URBAN. But the fact that money grubber choreographers will continue to bastardize the word HIP HOP (that already has a real history and foundation) Strictly to collect Fame and Wealth is a freakin CRIME! Meanwhile people like myself have to travel around the world and listen to half a$$ed Dancers tell me that "I am no longer HIP HOP" "I am a Break dancer!"... =/......WHAT!!! Sucka i was Hip Hop when you was swimmin in yo daddy's Nuts! >=/

All I know is that term is coined by the media on So You Think You Can Dance... Supposed to be "Hip Hop" (choreo style as seen on TV, not HIP HOP as we know it) with more feeling. Since Hip Hop choreo isn't really done to hip hop music, I doubt there's a rule that Lyrical Hip Hop actually has to be done to Hip Hop music as well... That's really all I know... good question, though, I'd really like to know more as well, u always share great insights and knowledge... peace and respect!

SYTYCD Tabitha and Napoleon look up the You Tube vids- or Jazz/funk/hip hop boardering on contemporary feeling. Supposedly hip hop with a storyline and emotions. Done to all styles of music. it's called hip hop because it's not seen as a Jazz/contemporary/tap or ballet style and mainly done in an upright standing position similar to the Jazz/funk hip hop style. No b-boy moves included. I'll find you an example and send it.

Emilio, I agree with u 100%, but Michelle's example is simply what's widely accepted as "Lyrical Hip Hop." Mostly by the studio dancers and performers, though... however, no matter how u look at it, there's a HUGE confusion in what "Hip Hop" dance is nowadays. Buddha Stretch is the TRUTH! Most of the "Hip Hop" routines u see nowadays are not hip hop at all... either way, those who look at the roots know the dance is done in the cyphers, in clubs, to hip hop music and they recognize the real style, not this modern/jazz/ballet fusion with popping and locking concepts... waiting for part 2, respect! :)

That's why it's so important people like Mr Wiggles keep getting out there and educating everyone. Don't know what's going to happen when they are gone. Things are going to get really distorted and contorted then, not that they aren't already now.

"it's called hip hop because it's not seen as a Jazz/contemporary/tap or ballet style and mainly done in an upright standing position similar to the Jazz/funk hip hop style. No b-boy moves included." I love it. Newsflash: b-boying is no longer hip hop. I should've watched more SYTYCD.

I've heard it be referred to as the New hip hop...it's a studio thing, it sells and people are banking off of it. It's all I see... and honestly yea I've seen some great routines...I appreciate all styles of dance but they should call it something different...this generation doesn't even know what hip hop is, they are confused with the pop music on the radio... I miss the... I guess the "old" hip hop smh

When I think of other street dancers, Poppers, Lockers, Bboys the ones who ubnderstand music always dance to the beat and and also to the lyrics where possible and if it's funky! because that is just dance. if you can ride a lyric you ride a lyric, but you don't call it 'lyrical popping' or 'lyrical locking' - may be we should....not. Don't get me strated on SYTYCD as they do 'lyrical hip hop' routines to non hip hop songs....

Lyrical Hip Hop.. is this wigs.. dancing to the word to express what singer he or she is saying to lack creativity and also exposed yourself to the fact you can not create on your own.. you never tell your story you tell the story of the what the writer of the song came up with.. in with that being said you tell the story of a GHOST.. in today know as GHOST WRITERS Cause you never see the person who wrote the lyrics.. So its more like ACAPELLA DANCING.. Cause you never really dance to the music..

Hi Fon SYTYCD doesn't do Break or tap dancing because as you know it takes years to do it right and they get people who have the dance studio technicality and pick up speed to get it out there to the masses in a week. Any way I was under the impression with all this talking of what is lyrical hip hop dance that there is no hip hop dance? It's hip hop culture and breakdancing is the true form of dance from this culture and everything that is now commercialised has spawned from this?
