B-Boying/B-Girling

Course with Albi Gjikaj

B-boying and b-girling, also known as breakdance or breaking, are all names for one urban dance style. The music is provided by pop, funk or hip hop. Fundamental elements of b-boying are Top Rocking (dancing while standing), Footworks (dancing on the floor), Freezes (remaining in a, preferably very impressive, position) and Powermoves (rotating on one body part or along one of the body’s axes). Albi and Iliana playfully provide insight into the different styles, and one thing is for sure: The fun in dancing is the most important thing here!
