B-boying or Breaking, also called Breakdancing, is a style of street dance that originated among African-American and Puerto Rican youths in New York City during the early 1970s.
A practitioner of this dance is called a b-boy, b-girl, or breaker. Although the term “breakdance” is frequently used to refer to the dance, “b-boying” and “breaking” are the original terms. These terms are preferred by the majority of the pioneers and most notable practitioners.
Breaking consists of four kinds of movement: toprock, footwork, power moves, and freezes. B-boys usually dance to a variety of music genres, such as funk, soul and hip hop.
BreakiNUS represents the B-boy scene in NUS. Through this dance, we hope to spread our love and knowledge of hip-hop culture, so as to give back to the community. Join us for our sessions and be part of this unique subcultural movement.
