Given the slight development of the contents of a rhythmic expressive character in Physical Education actual, and taking into account the broad possibilities that are offered for the development of the capacities of the students, we are offering a new alternative. This means working in the Physical Education area through a type of music with a huge up surge at both national and international levels, as is the case of the music Funky and Hip Hop. Many professionals have not managed the introduction of these contents in the classroom owing to their lack of knowledge about the same and the supposition that a let of technical equipment is needed as teaching aids. In this article we try to offer a clear vision of the working possibilies of which the only requirement is a minimum of rhythmic capacity and a little imagination, as well as the basic content that whatever programme of variable content must have in the actual educational mark of the LOGSE.
