No current Talk conversations about this book.
Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 019533406X, Paperback)B-boying is a form of Afro-diasporic competitive dance that developed in the Bronx, NY in the early 1970s. Widely--though incorrectly--known as "breakdancing," it is often dismissed as urban acrobatics set to music. In reality, b-boying is a traditional and profoundly expressive art form. Some b-boys display their skill at "popping"--rapid movements followed by short freezes. In Foundation, Joseph G. Schloss walks you through the history of b-boying and his personal relationship to the music and the artists who bring hip hop to life.
