I think the Hip Hop dance was definitely an integral part of the Old School movement, I think it fell out of popularity by the early golden age years, with a few annoying exceptions that came later.

Does it belong on the table? Maybe. We should start a vote. My only "against adding it" thought is that other genres like early rock and R&B also had signature named dances, stuff that my mom did back in HIgh School like the hand jive, the twist, and a million other names I can't think of so it's not distinctly a Hip Hop phenom. Still, this is a democratic thing, if you want to nominate it you could start a vote thread in the PTOHHE sub forum. Personally, I thought Skits was more Hip Hop specific and still is prevalent on Hip Hop albums today, that vote is still open too, yall should vote on both of these nominations and all nominations to the table.
