Street dance refers to contemporary vernacular dance forms that evolved in urban and suburban areas, such as towns or cities, as part of some urban culture. Some examples of street dance sub-categories are "hip hop dance", "funk dance", "house dance", "rave dance", "rock dance", "traditional jazz dance", "clog dance", "club dance" and "salsa dance".

It's not exactly known when the term was first introduced. However, it is known that all street dance forms derives from past folk, tribal, fad and freestyle dancing.

Street dance is popular amongst young people, especially those of african-american descent.
Industrial dance is a street dance that evolved amongst the cybergoth and rivethead cultures as a reaction to the fusion of industrial music with other electronic dance music, such as electro house and dark rave music genres.

The name alludes to the propensity of small-town residents to be intimately involved in the affairs of their neighbors, occasionally leading to violent altercations when encountering others in public. This is especially pronounced on weekends and in local bars or taverns where gossip and taunting is more likely to escalate to violence.
The name also refers ironically to the stereotypical portrayal of small-town “hicks” and their radical opposition to dancing, as was portrayed in the popular 1984 musical drama Footloose, starring Kevin Bacon.
“Hey how was your weekend?”

“Oh, it was alright. Went to the bar on Saturday night and got into a little small-town street-dance with Donny after I told him I got up in his sister’s guts.”
