Who is the Breaks Kru?
Celebrating their 18th anniversary, this b-boy phenomenon began traveling and competing across the East Coast, eventually receiving international stardom after battling one of break dancing's most sought after group in the 90's, "Crazy Legs and the New Rock Steady Crew".
Soon after, this controversial and mega-talented b-boy crew were booked out around the world; always focused on their mission of community activism and youth cultivation.
What is B-boying?
B-boying is a creative and improvisational mode of non-verbal communication and competition between individuals and groups, usually in relationship to music. It was birthed in the South Bronx in the early 1970s and is used as an alternative to gang fighting; it is a non-violent resolution to assert rights, defend turf, settle conflict, build community, entertain, and gain respect amongst peers, through the expressive use of the body and mind.
