Breakdancing

Breaking, also called Breakdancing or b-boying, is an athletic style of street dance. While diverse in the amount of variation available in the dance, breakdancing mainly consists of four kinds of movement: toprock, downrock, power moves, and freezes. Breakdancing is typically set to hip-hop, funk, and breakbeat music, although modern trends allow for much wider varieties of music along certain ranges of tempo and beat patterns.

Breakdance, or B-Boying is one of the more common dance styles in the nation. It is a dance that anybody can pick up, yet very hard to master due too there being a vast majority of different moves, freezes, and the like. Breakdancing can be split up into three major groups; Top rock, Foot-work, and Power. Top rock, as you can probably guess, is all the style when you are standing, these kinds of moves add your own spunk and style to your dance, and define you as a unique dancer. Some examples of Top Rock are Indian step and Side Step. Footwork is the same as Top Rock except there is one difference. Footwork is the style on the floor, this consists of Six-Step, Two-Step, PeterPans, etc. They add flare to your floor technique.
