What is the difference between jazz and hip hop?
Hip Hop is a fast, high energy type of dance seen in music videos and commercials. Dance moves seen in performance by artists such as Beyonce, Ke$ha and Drake would be typical examples of Hip Hop. Hip hop incorporates a lot of break dance moves and the moves are more isolated and less fluid than jazz dance moves.
