Hip hop hands - part 3

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 5 March 2011 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

Hip hop hands – and feet! This is a fresh shot of one of the dancers from Urban Lava. It wraps up our set on Hip hop and Breakdance. But as an encore, a rap artist and singer takes the stage in my next post!

What strikes me most about Hip hop and Breakdance is the strong part played by hand movement and gestures. The show itself is all about the moves and the sound; but when you see the still, silent images it is the hands that grab your attention. Thus our title for the series - Hip hop hands.
