Breakdancing, breaking, b-boying, or b-girling is a popular style of street dance that was born and developed as part of hip-hop culture among African Americans and Latino youths in Bronx, New York in the 1970’s. As a hip-hop dance, it is usually danced to hip hop music, and incorporates intricate body movements, strong acrobatic moves, coordination, style, spontaneity, and fashion. The dancers often participate in battles, formal or informal dance competitions between two or more individuals or dancing crews.
All of our breaking classes stress correct placement (body alignment), and correct technique. Class level is determined by the instructor, and is based on an individual assessment when the student takes a trial class. All students receive corrections during class to help them advance. Students advance to the next level based on the recommendation of the instructor.
We require that all students wear comfortable clothes such as shorts or sweats and a tee shirt. Students must wear clean shoes such as Converse or similar.
NO STREET SHOES are allowed in the classrooms.
