Since it was introduced in Japan in the 1970s, within just 40 years, street dance has become one of the most popular dance genres, and the number of dance studio and practitioners has increased significantly. Rhythm dance has now incorporated into the school education through the subject of “modern rhythm dance”, and have become familiar subject to many young people.
