  • What is Breakin (breakdancing)?
    While Breakin has yet to reach its final form and means many things to different people, at an attempt to define- Breakdancing, also known as b-boying or breaking, is a form of street dance that emerged in the 1970s primarily in the Bronx, New York City. It is characterized by its dynamic and acrobatic movements, intricate footwork, and creative expression. Breakdancing is often performed to hip-hop music and is an integral part of hip-hop culture. Key elements of breakdancing include: Toprock: This refers to the dance performed while standing upright before transitioning into more complex moves. Toprock involves various rhythmic steps, arm movements, and gestures. Footwork: involves intricate movements of the hands and feet on the ground. Dancers perform a series of steps, kicks, and shuffles in a fluid manner. Power Moves: These are the more acrobatic and physically demanding aspects of breakdancing. Power moves include spins, windmills, head spins, and other gravity-defying tricks. Freezes: Freezes are static poses that require the dancer to balance on one or more body parts, often using their hands, elbows, shoulders, or head. Transitions: Breakdancers seamlessly connect different movements and styles, creating a continuous flow of motion. Breakdancing is often associated with battles, where dancers compete against each other to showcase their skills and creativity. Judges assess the dancers based on factors such as musicality, technique, originality, and performance. Over the years, breakdancing has evolved and diversified, incorporating various influences from different dance styles and cultures. In recent years, breakdancing has gained global recognition and was even added as an official sport to the program of the 2024 Paris Summer Olympics. This recognition further highlights the significance and cultural impact of breakdancing as an art form and a form of expression.
  • Is Breakdancing safe?
    Short answer: no Long answer: Breakdancing come from expressing high energy in a spontaneous manner. As such, a lot of the foundation that is wide spread today comes from this with no regard for how our human body is designed to function. As a result pain, creative plateau, injury, and worst of all: artistic retirement, ensue. BTR BREAKIN is the only training method that uses biomechanics (sport science) to address the dysfunctions of the Breakdancing. With scientific precision and the latest in sport science technology we reversed engineered the foundational moves of this art form and created a tiered training system to help develop the right body foundations before stepping in to the chaos of Breakdancing. Because of this BTR BREAKIN is a stand alone training system that offers the highest quality of training with functionality and longevity in mind. Back to the short answer: Breakdancing practiced through the filter of sport science is a lot safer than the typical studio/street approach.
