BREAKING / B-BOYING

WHAT IS  BREAKING / B-BOYING?

B-boying or breaking, commonly referred to as breakdancing, is a style of dance that evolved as part of hip-hop culture among Black and Latino American youths during the 1970s.It is danced to both hip-hop and other genres of music that are often remixed to prolong the musical breaks. One who practices this style of dance is called a b-boy, b-girl, or breaker. 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.
