About this program
B-boying and B-girling (street dance), born in the early 1970s, is an integral component of contemporary black history and hip-hop culture. This dynamic street dance now has a significant international following and reputation. In addition to its roots in Funk music and African American culture, the powerful acrobatic aspects of B-boying, or “breaking”, make it one of the most unique dances in the world.
Dancer-choreographer Crazy Smooth brings together some of Canada’s best street dancers to present a show that will amaze and inspire participants and teachers alike, while educating them on the evolution of the dance, its culture and music.
