Funk dance or funk styles refer to dance styles that are primarily danced to funk music. More specifically they can be used for a group of street dance styles that originated in California in the 1970s, mainly popping and locking. Though these specific dance styles have today been incorporated into the hip hop culture to some extent, and are often seen danced to hip hop music and electronica as well, they were originally and are still commonly danced to funk music. One of the reasons that the term funk styles first appeared was to give these dances their own identity and avoid them being primarily associated with hip hop and breakdancing.
