History of hip hop BreakDancing
Also known as breaking and commonly referred to as breakdancing, is a style of dance that was created and developed as part of hip-hop culture among African Americans, and later on Latino youths in New York City. Breaking includes four primary moves: toprock, downrock, power moves and freezes/suicides. It is danced to both hip-hop and other genres of music that are often remixed to prolong the musical breaks. The musical selection for breaking is not restricted to hip-hop music, as long as the tempo and beat pattern conditions are met. One who practices this style of dance is called a b-boy, b-girl, or breaker. These dancers often participate in battles, formal or informal dance competitions between two individuals or two crews. Although “breakdance” is a common term, “b-boying” and “breaking” are preferred by the majority of the art form’s pioneers and most notable practitioners.
