Breakdance also known as breaking, b-girling or b-boying is a street dance style that evolved as part of the hip hop movement that originated among African American and Latin American youths in the South Bronx of New York during the early 1970s.
It involves a variety of movements all of which are spin offs of top rock, down rock, power moves and freezes traditionally danced on the beat. What was once a male dance trend associated with the term Bboys, over the years has evolved and now both Bboys and Bgirls can be found all over the world including Brazil, Cambodia, Canada, France, Japan and South Korea.
