Break Dance



 

B-boying or breaking, often called “breakdancing“, is a style of street dance that originated as a part of hip hop culture among African American and latino youths in New York City during the early 1970s. While extremely diverse in the amount of variation available in the dance, b-boying consists of four primary elements: toprock, downrock, power moves, and freezes. B-boying is typically danced to hip hop and especially break beats, although modern trends allow for much wider varieties of music along certain ranges of tempo and beat patterns.
