Breakdancing, also called breaking or b-boying, is an athletic style of street dance. While diverse in the amount of variation available in the dance, breakdancing mainly consists of four kinds of movement: toprock, downrock, power moves, and freezes. Breakdancing is typically set to hip-hop, funk, and breakbeat music, although modern trends allow for much wider varieties of music along certain ranges of tempo and beat patterns.
The dance style originated primarily among Puerto Rican and African American youths (many of them former members of street gangs, such as the Black Spades, the Young Spades, and the Baby Spades) during the mid-1970s in the Bronx.[1] The dance spread worldwide due to popularity in the media, especially in Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Russia, South Korea, and the United Kingdom.
A practitioner of this dance is called a b-boy, b-girl, or breaker. Although the term “breakdance” is frequently used to refer to the dance in popular culture and in the mainstream entertainment industry, “b-boying” and “breaking” are the original terms and are preferred by the majority of the pioneers and most notable
Instead of the original term b-boying (break-boying), the mainstream media promoted the artform as breakdancing, causing many to only know it as such. Enthusiasts consider “breakdancing” an ignorant and derogatory term due to the media’s exploitation of the artform.[4] The media displayed a simplified[5] version of the dance, making it seem like the so-called “tricks” were everything, ultimately trading the culture for money and promotion.[6] The term “breakdancing” is also problematic because it has become a diluted umbrella term that incorrectly includes popping, locking, and electric boogaloo,[7]:60[8] which are not styles of “breakdance”, but are funk styles that were developed separately from breaking in California.[9] The dance itself is properly called “breaking” by rappers such as KRS-One, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, and Darryl McDaniels of Run–D.M.C.[10]

The terms “b-boy” (break-boy), “b-girl” (break-girl), and “breaker” were the original terms used to describe the dancers who performed to DJ Kool Herc’s breakbeats. DJ Kool Herc is a Jamaican-American DJ who is responsible for developing the foundational aspects of hip-hop music. The obvious connection of the term “breaking” is to the word “breakbeat”. DJ Kool Herc has commented that the term “breaking” was 1970s slang for “getting excited”, “acting energetically” or “causing a disturbance”.[11] Most breaking pioneers and practitioners prefer the terms “b-boy”, “b-girl”, and/or “breaker” when referring to these dancers. For those immersed in hip-hop culture, the term “breakdancer” may be used to disparage those who learn the dance for personal gain rather than for commitment to the culture.[7]:61 B-boy London of the New York City Breakers and filmmaker Michael Holman refer to these dancers as “breakers”.[2] Frosty Freeze of the Rock Steady Crew says, “we were known as b-boys”, and hip-hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa says, “b-boys, [are] what you call break boys… or b-girls, what you call break girls.”[2] In addition, co-founder of Rock Steady Crew Santiago “Jo Jo” Torres, Rock Steady Crew member Marc “Mr. Freeze” Lemberger, hip-hop historian Fab 5 Freddy, and rappers Big Daddy Kane[12] and Tech N9ne[13] use the term “b-boy”.[2]Video gaming[edit]
There have been only few video games created that focus on b-boying. The main deterrence for attempting to create games like these is the difficulty of translating the dance into something entertaining and fun on a video game console. Most of these attempts had low to average success.
