Traditional jazz dance, having existed since the late 19th century, is perhaps one of the oldest street dances of urban America. It can be argued that worldwide, there are older dances that evolved in a urban environment or alongside urban culture (even though the term was rarely used), nonetheless, performance dances such as ballet were the most popular in urban spaces prior to jazz (note that ballet is not a street dance and is usually performed on stage). Street dance is often considered as urban folk dance. Since many concepts of urbanization have existed for a long time back in history, the point of which folk dance is to be considered a more historical street dance is often broad and unknown. Hence, street dance and folk dance are distinguished by when the terms were introduced for, the term 'street dance' as a compound noun has been believed to have existed since the beginning of the early 20th century, whereby Afro-American vernacular dance was becoming the most popular in the western world.

Street dance, more formally known as vernacular dance, is an umbrella term used to describe dance styles that evolved outside of dance studios in any available open space such as streets, parks, school yards, raves, and nightclubs. They are often improvisational and social in nature encouraging interaction and contact with spectators and the other dancers. These dances generally evolve out of urban and suburban spaces in some form of underground culture or region; they are a part of the vernacular culture of that geographical area (as if they were folk dances; although since the advent of the internet, the dances seem to be shared amongst people with the same musical interest worldwide). Therefore, street dance refers to modern folk dance with the term 'street' being more accurate since much of the modern world is now urbanized. Some examples of street dance include B-boying, more commonly known as breakdancing, which originated in New York City, Melbourne Shuffle which originated in Melbourne, Australia and Tecktonik which originated in Paris, France.
