Hip hop dancing also called breaking or b-boying/b-Girling is an athletic style of free street dance direct from The Bronx, USA.
While diverse in the amount of variation available in the dance, breakdancing mainly consists of four kinds of movement: top rock, down rock, power moves, and freezes.
This is the oldest known hip-hop style of dance. It is believed to have originated in Boogie down The Bronx during the 1970s. Musical inspirations date back to the energetic performances of funk maestro, James Brown.
