Street dances, are dance styles that evolved outside of dance studios in any available open space, such as streets, dance parties, block parties, parks, school yards, raves, and nightclubs. They are often improvisational and social in nature, encouraging interaction and contact with spectators and the other dancers. Some examples of street dance include breakdancing and hiphop dances.  
   
Hip-hop dance refers to street dance styles primarily performed to hip-hop music or that have evolved as part of hip-hop culture. It includes a wide range of styles notably breaking, locking, and popping which were created in the 1970s and made popular by dance crews in the United States. The television show Soul Train and the 1980s films Breakin', Beat Street, and Wild Style showcased these crews and dance styles in their early stages; therefore, giving hip-hop mainstream exposure.  
     
Breaking was created in the South Bronx, New York during the early 1970s. It is the first hip-hop dance style. Locking, originally called Campbellocking, was created in Los Angeles, California by Don "Campbellock" Campbell and popularized in the United States by his crew The Lockers. Popping was created by Sam Solomon in Fresno, California and performed by his crew the Electric Boogaloos. It is based on the technique of quickly contracting and relaxing muscles to cause a jerk in a dancer's body, referred to as a pop or a hit. House dance is a social dance primarily danced to house music that has roots in the clubs of Chicago and of New York. The main elements of House dance include "Footwork", "Jacking", and "Lofting". House dance is often improvisational in nature and emphasizes on fast and complex foot-oriented steps combined with fluid movements in the torso, as well as floor work.  
     
The commercialization of hip-hop dance continued into the 1990s and 2000s with the production of several other television shows and movies such as The Grind, Planet B-Boy, Rize, StreetDance 3D, America's Best Dance Crew, Saigon Electric, the Step Up film franchise, and The LXD, a web series. Though the dance is established in entertainment, it still maintains a strong presence in urban neighborhoods which has led to the creation of street dance derivatives turfing, krumping, and jerkin'.
     
 
     
  The dance industry responded to hip-hop dance by creating a commercial version of it. This studio hip-hop, sometimes called new style, is the kind of hip-hop dance seen in rap, R&B, and pop music videos and concerts. From the point-of-view of someone deeply immersed in hip-hop culture, anything that looks like hip-hop dance that did not come from the streets is not a true hip-hop dance form.
Another style the dance industry created in response to hip-hop was jazz-funk. Jazz-funk (also called street-jazz) is a hybrid of hip-hop and jazz dance. R&B singer Beyoncé, Chris Brown, Usher, Ciara mostly uses this style.
