Lyrical hiphop by me!
sorry for my bad!
SHOOT! I'm 26. I'm a dinosaur to a lot of these kids then.
Damn. Ya know you're talking to the father of "Hip Hop Dance" right? He is the one that can state whether something is "hip hop dance" or not, 'cause he is the original founder.
You're talking abt many irrelevant things.
Plz, do some research .. try to understand what buddha's saying. Foundations n music define what you are doing, not the lyric-or-beat stuff. Dance to the lyrics is cool, as long as the hip hop dancer has groove and rhythm and never dance off-beat just to be "lyrical"
So i guess us OLD folks know how to dance!what if they play an instrumental?what are you going to do…sing?SMH
i am no hiphop dancer but buddah i love u man!!!!!
Lyrical Jazz doesn't follow the lyrics. Lyrical refers to movement quality instead of interpretation of the lyrics. A lot of people who don't know the history of dance confuse the meanings of word lyrical, and come with choreographies miming the lyrics and calling it "lyrical". So I guess you'll be cool with lyrical hip hop which follows the beat instead of lyrics but has a lyrical quality of movement?
thank u for this video ,
I'd like to add to my understanding, the term "lyrical hip hop" should not exist.
Or be related to hip hop dance which first of a street dance. In street dance we freestyle to w.e. song whether we know it or not. So how I can i do lyrical to a song i don't know?
We can dance to lyrics but don't be labelling ish as "lyrical" takes the street dance aspect out of it to me.
To me its either hip hop or not, no adjective should be added.
STOP WITH THE CAPS RETARDS.

pleaseeeeee name of song 🙁
@BUDDHASTRETCH68 Ok ..Thank you 😉
Hello Laura…i don't like to label other people's things…from my perspective..HipHop is a culture,& the dance SHOULD reflect that culture…what i do,teach,& live is a reflection of the culture..NOT just in NYC..but all of the USA…i can't speak on youtube stars…i've never seen or heard of any of the folks named in any cypha's,battles,video's,etc…only on youtube…peace
Buddha I really admire you but what kind of style for you dancing Shaun Evaristo , Laura Edwards …cuz they don't dancing hip hop for me
please answer me 🙂
@BUDDHASTRETCH68 now it makes sense
just watch buddah dance, see how he rides the music, feels it, plays with it, the beat, the pauses, the lyrics, everything.. If you dance to the music and let yourself be takin away. If your expressing what feeling, you don't rule out a single part. You dance to it all..like he does. Watch him dance, feel him dance, I don't understand what people don't get..
So much drama!
The thing Buddha tryed to tell us is:
HipHop is a culture. When hip hop ppl party they dance… the dancing steps they do became hiphop dance. And it was all about beat and passion.
And now, seeing a thing like "lyrical hiphop" Buddha tryes to tell us that there is a lot of meaning and history in "hiphop". You can't simply attach another word ESPECIALLY when "lyrical hiphop" is in not part of hiphop culture
Cool lyrical stuff. But not hiphop. Correct me if I am wrong!
Thank you buddha stretch for enlightening me, and helping me become a better person a better dancer and a better hiphop dancer 🙂 – Ian from the philippines
I thought that was really cool but I dont think that was a lyrical hip hop dance.
i think singers sing to the beat as well.
Lyrical Hip Hop Dancing: The art of telling the story of a song through movement. The heart lies within the rhythm of the beat, and the soul lies within the lyrics. You either feel it or you dont, but you must acknowledge both parts of a song. Thats what I think anyway,
I'm pretty sure that lyrical 'hip-hop' definitely doesn't mean that you dance ONLY to the words. I've never seen anyone dance to only words. It just doesn't work like that. All lyrical hip-hop dancers that I know of dance to both the beats and the words whenever they're given a chance to interpret the words.
I don't get how people here try to tell Stretch to be more open-minded about "lyrical hip hop"!!! If ever there had been such a thing (but if you just take different accents in the music and ignore the beats, how is that a "new dance style"???), it would be on all the dancers to look to Stretch, Henry, Bobby and the whole of Dance Fusion as the founder of this dance!!! btw that "MY-HEART'S-BREAKIN etc" spasmic literal dancing is soo tired!!! LOL!!
But i have to agree w/Buddha on the Lyrical HipHop. There is no such thing. There is Lyrical and there is HipHop. That is just a term that is given to a specific style of choreography. It is simply that …."choreography". But I wouldnt go as far as saying that because someone chooses to dance to the Lyrics, that they cant dance to the beat. Its a matter of preference. Each person has there own tastes just like everything else. Respect to all! Jwrecks TSC!
I know when i dance I use every part of the music. The beat, Lyrics, every sound every instrument. Your movement should accent the music as a whole, in my opinion. I would never limit myself to just the beat.
@BUDDHASTRETCH68 – Thank U! This is what I stay arguing w/ ppl within my dance realm… the flex dancers think they are lyrical but 4get how to actually dance to the damn beat! Thats FIRST! Lyrical as an accent is EXACTLY what I been telling them!
Much Respect to you & MTC from ENY, im from Bed-Stuy, history fa real!
Bruk Up Style since 94'
BUDDHA STRETCH … true Inspiration
respect man 4 your dance and 4 your Knowledge.
nice video, it helped me a lot.
luv peace unity !!!!
Word, thanks Stretch.
ALL DANCE IS FUSION…WHAT I WAS TRYING TO SHOW IS DANCE TO THE MUSIC,& USING THE LYRICS AS AN ACCENT…BUT PEOPLE ARE SO INSECURR' BOUT THEIR DANCE…THEY HAVE TO FEEL LIKE I'M COMING AFTER THEM!LYRICAL HIPHOP TAKES MANY FORMS,LIKE HUMAN BEINGS DO…..BUT FOLKS NEED TO LEARN THE "HIPHOP" PART,BEFORE THEY ADD THE LYRICAL..AGAIN..IMO!THANKS…PEACE
Every style has something to offer that the other style cannot. Lyrical has smthng unique to it that Hip-Hop doesn't have, so just call it for what it is. PERIOD.
STRETCH- Some ppl will argue that it's a fusion of 2 styles. So you're dancing in a hip-hop way of movement but you're telling a story according to the lyrics & w/ your movements, so it's a fusion of the 2. What would you say to that? I got some cats I'm arguing with about it haha. this is Kae btw, I was at Mop Top.
Stretch is not "defaming" lyrical, street jazz, or any other style of dance. He is saying know what is what, and to stop mislabeling dances for what they are not. If it's lyrical dance and not hip-hop, then call it lyrical! Or pop, or street jazz… call it for what it is. Stop lumping everything under the umbrella of hip-hop. Respect each style enough to call it by its name.
LOL..RESENTMENT??THE PROBLEM LIES IN THE FACT THAT THE YOUTH AREN'T BEING TAUGHT TO DANCE!THEY'RE BEING TAUGHT WHAT BASICALLY AMOUNTS TO CHEARLEADING,& AEROBICS!DO SOME RESEARCH….HISTORY ALWAYS REPEATS ITSELF…BUT THOSE WHO *MAKE* HISTORY MAKE SURE IT BECOMES BETTER THE NEXT TIME AROUND!
