Locking, and popping gained popularity in the 1980’s, hip-hop social dancing (party robot dancing) started to develop. Novelty and fad dances such as the Roger Rabbit, the Cabbage Patch, and the Worm appeared in the 1980s followed by the Humpty dance and the Running Man in the 1990s.
It is historically inaccurate to say that the funk styles were always considered hip-hop.
Social dances include the Cha Cha Slide, the Cat Daddy, and the Dougie. The previously mentioned dances are a sample of the many that have appeared since hip-hop developed into a distinct dance style. Like hip-hop music, hip-hop social dancing continues to change as new songs are released and new dances are created to accompany them.

It is “similar to a freeze or a sudden pause.” A locker’s dancing is characterized by frequently locking in place and after a brief freeze moving again
The lock is the primary move used in locking. It is “similar to a freeze or a sudden pause.”
The older dance styles that were created in the 1970s include uprock, breaking, and the funk styles. An influence on toprock was uprock which was created in Brooklyn, New York. Uprock looks similar to toprock, but it is more aggressive and looks like a fight.
