Hip hop may be the most popular form of dance today, but it certainly isn't the easiest.

While it may seem like it's all about breaking, popping and locking, dancers work hard for the many different stunts and tricks that require extreme strength, flexibility, agility and creativity.

What average person (who doesn't practice yoga seven days a week, of course!) can even balance on their head, let alone spin around in dizzying circles in a fast-paced power move. And balancing all of your body weight on just one hand in a freeze requires some serious skill. Not to mention, the best of the best hip hop heads need excellent rhythm, timing and so much more.

See why hip hop dancers inspire us with all the hard work they put into their craft.

Practice everywhere.
