In todays pop culture, the dance innovators from back in the day have been forgotten, except when choreographic echoes of their groundbreaking dance forms are repeatedly recycled in todays media. Sadly, this is still the case when dance moves that were engendered from 1965 through the 1970s on the streets of Reseda, South Central Los Angeles, Oakland, San Francisco, and Fresno, CA- or in the Bronx in New York City, are utilized by modern performers.In Underground Dance Masters: Final History of a Forgotten Era, an urban street dancer who was part of the scene in the early 1970s sets the record straight, blowing the lid off this uniquely American dance style and culture. This text redefines hip hop dance and the origins of a worldwide phenomenon, explaining the origins of classic forms such as Funk Boogaloo, Locking, Popping, Roboting, and Bboying some of the most important developments in modern dance that directly affect todays pop culture.
