BREAKING

Instructor: Arnaldo

Breaking, Bboying, Bgirling or Breakin' is the original Hip Hop Dance! The term "Break Dance" was used for the media, but is culturally not accepted as the correct wording, so don't call it Break Dance! Breaking started in the 80's and can be found in your modern day music videos and movies. Some key movements used are top rock, footwork, freezes, and power moves. It's athletic, funky, spectacular to watch and a key element in Hip Hop culture.

Music used: Hip Hop, Rap, Instrumentals, Funk, Break Beats

Waacking/Whacking/Punking/Posing comes from the Gay clubs of Los Angeles, which brings you the confidence, fierce and dramatic movements inspired by black & white films, super hero comics & the martial arts.
