Journey through the evolution of street dance – from hip-hop and breakdancing, to the various funk moves we have today.
Originating from the US in the 70s, funk incorporates a variety of ‘popping’ and ‘locking’ movements, and an infusion of high-adrenalin dance styles choreographed to funk music.

Learn more about the exciting world of funk as energetic dancers from SMU Funk Movement showcase the visual, musical and geographical differences behind various forms of street dance. Marvel at the possibilities as these styles are combined across different genres.

Igniting the thrill is live music from SMU Voix and SMU Music Interactive Club, and guest performances by SMU Eurhythmix (Breakers).
