|Women blaze into hip-hop
HIP-HOP has been a male-dominated industry for more than 30 years. Blokes in hoodies have been playing the beats and chaps in baggy pants have led the dancing, while women have mostly been booty-shaking in the background. But more and more women are stepping into the spotlight. Second Waver Kloe Dean, (pictured), is considered one of the best hip-hop dancers in Europe and part of Blaze, the hip-hop theatre show that has had success in London's West End, Europe, Russia and south-east Asia.
