The thing that made it confusing is that we (1st generation) just disappeared. Dropped out the dance scene because:
1) we were pushed out the club scene by the club owners. They no longer allowed us to take over the dance floor like we were use to.
2) and most importantly the music began to change. No longer were they playing the songs we danced to.
3) and even more importantly we began to experience a paradigm shift.
The style of Rock that we did evolved into bboying, House, Popping and the crown jewel of them all HIPHOP. We danced in such a sophisticated and dynamic way that it evolved into way more. Most us Rock dancers moved on to school, career jobs and often times relocated to another place with more opportunity. Quite a few of my brothers and sisters from back in the day 70 to around 77 died of drug overdoses and were handed long term prison sentences. So we are now in our history lessens calling it the disappearance of a generation. Only a few of us around to tell this story. The Urbanization of Formal Dance now known as streetstyle dance gave birth to even more specific HIPHOP and its element of dance.
