Time for a Break

There are four essential elements that make up Hip Hop; Emcee, DJ, Tagging/Graffiti, and Breakdancing. Each of these elements serves equal importance to the structure of the genre. I ran across this video and hesitated to put it up originally but the dancer in me battled and won. There’s no doubt movement is a form of artistic expression just as much as singing is. Here is a clip of some NY breakdancers from the 80’s who incorporate fluid acrobatic play and extensive groundwork as a form of communication.
