So I'm curious, if "breaking" and "breakdance" aren't proper terms, why did the New York City Breakers have that name? This would have been early '80s time frame.

Be careful! Invent is wanted in 7 counties for murdering beats and serving fools some nasty treats! Like Hammer, This dude will turn your mutha out! I've seen it with my own eyes back in the day, I'd be afraid of what's up now.

I fully agree with what your saying, freestyle is about the use of all forms of dance to a degree with no restrictions, i would have to ask why they feel that you cant use both styles as its FREESTYLE no set rules, all the competitors i see at competitions use all forms and it looks wicked!

I agree with the author about real hip-hop, but there is nothing wrong with hip-hop in a studio, and it is real hip-hop, because our studio doesn't do fake hip-hop, and some hip-hop does have 8-counts, so , it's not sloppy on stage. I also take other classes and not just hip-hop, see I take ballet and there is nothing wrong with a ballet dancer in hip-hop, like there is nothing wrong with a lyrical dancer in tap. I take 4 hip-hop classes a week.

Generally, you can get away with saying "breaking" more than you can "breakdancing". I say the former all the time, but never the latter if I'm talking to another b-boy.

B-boying did not begin in the 80's, the 80's was the time period that it all became mainstream. It began in the Bronx, and there was a great sense of pride in the name "b-boy". Many b-boys have mixed feelings about NYC Breakers, Rocksteady Crew, and all the other b-boys that were being seen on TV.

On one hand, the dance was seen as something like a circus act by the mainstream population, and generally still is seen this way. On TV, crews didn't showcase intricate floorwork, which came before powermoves and freezes, and the fact that they were dancing to the music. Instead people saw windmills, headspins, backspins, turtles and freezes, all done not to dance but for the sake of showing off.

However, if it wasn't for these crews and mainstream attention in the 80's, there's a good chance that I wouldn't even know what a b-boy was, and we wouldn't have these powermoves and concepts to build off of. Powermoves have evolved tremendously, but so has toprock and floorwork.

Another thing is that many b-boys do separate b-boys from breakdancers. We see someone who is not a part of the culture and only breaks to show off their moves to others as a breakdancer, because breakdancer is a term coined by MTV and breakdancing was what was seen on MTV. A real b-boy knows and respects the culture, and comes out to jams to battle or cypher or show support. Plus he always dances to the beat.

I admire your love of hip hop in all it's forms. breaking, poppin and locking are truly some of the hardest dance forms to master in all that i have come across. I do however challange the range of what you consider "real hip hop," particularly that there is no real hip hop in a dance studio. I am curious as to what your exceptions are?

I would like to thank you for this post. I found it at a time that I really needed it. I was recenly hired as a hip-hop instructor at a coservative yet unorganized studio in the Mid-West. I do more of a krump and street hip hop style. When I try to teach my choreography to my high schoolers (who you think would love this since SYTYCD has highlighted krump) they hate it, and have now requested that I do not fill in for their class when their teacher is sick. They also made it openly clear that they dislike my choreography. And the studio owner (not a dancer, a severly overweight woman who took the studio over when the original owner left) is talking about hiring a new teacher that does more "Jazzy-Hip Hop", as she would call it.

I have been so discouraged. I love dancing again, but I feel like if these girls call themselves dancers they should be open to many styles. While I taught a hard popping dance they called it too "Ghetto".

What should I do any help here? I feel like I am being caged here. If they want Jazz take a freaking Jazz class.

Hi,

I'm a writer not a professional dancer though I am a fan of hip-hop styles of dance. I recently wrote an article about how to become a professional hip-hop dancer, but since I am not one myself had to rely on research and common knowledge to write it. I would love to have some professional dancers look the article over and make suggestions for improvement. Or maybe additional insights that would make the article more useful for persons interested in pursuing hip-hop dance as a profession.

The article is here

www.ehow.com . . .

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I included a link to this site on the article for persons looking for more info.

Sincerely,

Daruth Padilla
