LOUGHBOROUGH BREAKDANCE SOCIETY
What is B-Boying?!
Breakdance/BBoying or breaking is a street-based dance that incorporates intricate body movements, coordination, style, and aesthetics. The people who perform this style of dance are known as b-boys or b-girls.
Breakdance, the oldest style of hip hop, is believed to have originated in the Bronx, New York in the 1970's. Sonic inspirations date back to the energetic performances of funk maestro, James Brown. In the early days of djing, mc-ing and b-boying, a break (an instrumental part of a song that is looped repeatedly by the DJ) would be incorporated into songs to allow a showcase of improvised breakdance steps.
Music is an essential part of breaking, but hip-hop is not the only option. 70's soul, funk, and even jazz tunes all work as well. Style, fashion, spontaneity, concept and technique are also vital aspects of breakdancing.
