There is no one definition to describe hip hop dance. Hip hop dance is a fusion of dance disciplines and cultural interpretations that capture the look, attitude, posture, music and elements of the urban environment. Hip hop dance is continuously evolving and redefining itself with each new generation of dancers.

The highest scoring hip hop dance routine according to Hip Hop International contains a variety of dance styles, showmanship, original signature moves, engaging music and a demonstration of continuous and uninterrupted complete body (head to toe) dance choreography without overuse of gymnastic, cheer, acrobatics or overly dangerous moves.

Before you compete, carefully read the rules or better yet attend our Official Rules and Regulations Workshop where you will learn:

  • How a judge evaluates a crews performance.
  • The top places crews loose points and how to avoid them
  • The stupid little thing you can do that affects 10% of your score
  • Learn about our Cheater Defeater Technology that assures a fairer result even if a judge is a choreographer for your competitor’s crew.
  • The steps you need to take to go from watching to being an International Elite HHI Judge.
  • And much more.


The one to two day  Course is a must for teachers, choreographers, dancers and judges who want to get a better result.
