Hip-Hop in the world of KARDO is about people who live in the rhythm of freedom, inspire and support each other. We are united by the spirit of hip-hop culture and street history, which find its expression in dance.


Hip-hop is the streets of the Bronx, it's style, it's movement, it's rhythm. Hip-hop is freedom.
Hip-hop culture is a relatively young culture, but for those born after the 70s, it has always existed.
In fact, hip-hop unites many directions, which are also presented in the program: this applies to DJing, breaking, and graffiti. If we add rap to this list, we get what are called the four pillars of hip-hop culture. There is also a fifth element — knowledge.

Hip-hop as an independent style of dance developed under the influence of breaking, locking and popping. Therefore, the moves it includes can be seen in different styles, but their combination is what sets hip-hop apart from the rest.
Hip hop is both relaxed and confident sharp movements that flow into more smooth ones; it is a low body posture, relaxed knees, steps and grooves. The powerful energy of hip-hop emphasizes the performance of movements not just to melodic tracks, but to rhythmic beats.

In half a century of its existence, hip-hop has moved from the streets of the Bronx to dance academies and big arenas in numerous countries around the world. The spirit of hip-hop culture unites thousands of amateurs and professionals around the world. Some of them you are sure to see on the KARDO.
