B-Girls and B-Boys: Cultural Production and the Hip-Hop Dance Subculture

Jia Zheng, George Mason University, USA

The research examines the hip-hop dance subculture with implications for extending our knowledge of cultural production within arts communities of production/consumption. Findings suggest that cultural production within this artistic community is conflicted and fragmentary, and that commodification is embraced to allow the subculture and art to flourish.
