The breakdance (real name b-boying or breaking) is a discipline of dance hip hop culture developed by African-American youth communities in Latin America and the Bronx since 1968. Dj Kool Herc coined the term b-boy to identify young people who danced down "on the ground" during his breaks music in street parties in 1972. Since the eighties, the b-boying has spread around the world, evolving his technique with moves more and more spectacular, and associating its practical application to a real lifestyle, hip hop-style.
