B-boying or Breaking also called Breakdancing is the dance form of hip-hop that originated among African-American and Puerto Rican youths in New York City during the early 1970s. B-boying is typically danced to hip-hop and especially breakbeats, although modern trends allow for much wider varieties of music along certain ranges of tempo and beat patterns. Learn the four basic elements of Breakdancing - toprock, down rock (footwork), power moves and freezes.
