Hip Hop and some history
It is historically inaccurate to say that the funk styles were always considered hip-hop

Popping & Locking
Two very great dances which every street dancer should know and have as part of their style...

That is some history I know about those early days of street dancing, so much creativity and development. I will be creating a dance specific website but putting this page up as start and later a link to the idea.

The older dance styles that were created in the 1970s include uprock, breaking, and the funk styles. An influence on toprock was uprock which was created in Brooklyn, New York. Uprock looks similar to toprock, but it is more aggressive and looks like a fight. Uprock is also performed with partners, but in toprock—and in breaking in general—each person takes turns dancing. At the same time breaking was developing in New York, other styles were being created in California. The funk styles refers to several street dance styles created in California in the 1970s such as roboting, bopping, hitting, locking, bustin', popping, electric boogaloo, strutting, sac-ing, and dime-stopping. Out of all of these dances, boogaloo is one of the oldest. It started out as a 1960s fad dance and was the subject of several songs released during that time. The most popular and widely practiced of the funk styles are locking and popping. The television show Soul Train played a large role in giving these styles commercial exposure. Both The Lockers and The Electric Boogaloos—dance crews responsible for the spread of locking and popping—performed on this show.
