Dance as a phenomenon of modern youth dance subculture


We reveal the concept of “subculture” from various points of view. The process of socialization associated with communication and joint activities of individuals is closely related to the media and the socio-cultural environment, which have a direct impact on the development of subcultures. The structuring of youth subcultures is considered under the influence of musical phenomena and other components of artistic culture. We analyze the history of development and classification of today’s popular youth dance styles: street dance, hip-hop, salsa, hustle, TikTok challenge, etc.
