Rebel is a style of dance that cultivated in the 90's here in El Paso Texas, Juarez Mexico and California, all for the love of House Music. This style of dance originally was deticated to only hardhouse music but as time progressed and music so did we. At first hard house was the main style of electronic played at clubs, then it gradually went to all house, we still kept on dancing for the love it, then we had the same story goin on but with electro, not all of us were all to happy with the change, some of us hated the music at first but then again we still wanted to dance so we kept up with the groove and ended up embracing it. We have changed the original hardcore, stomping style and incorporated it with styles such as groove, toprock, popping, disco, retro funk etc. where ever we could get ideas for new moves we'd used them, the majority of all Rebels create their own style. Rebel is a very original style of dance deticated to only electronic music, we have nothing to do with Tektonics, Jumpstyle nor Hardstyle Shuffle, we had these styles jotted down already and were dancing them 10 times better years ago before they came out. Battles play a huge role with Rebels, (which used to be pretty aggressive and physical) simply to prove which krew or dancer is better of course, (though some just liked the violent aspect about it lol) but also to push ourselves to progress, amongst each other i can pretty much say we only had one rule, "No Bitting"!!! (copying moves) amongst each other, sometimes people were cool with it if you were from the same krew! ,,,but rules of course would get broken and thats when battles would get pretty damn heated up!!! ja and thats one of the reasons people mainly have this misconception that all we like to do is fight! which we do right lol but to a certain extent ja. Im trying to compose a new video with as many different styles for your viewing pleasure and to get footage of the few old schools still around, before the old styles diminish, since mostly all have parted ways, and also to give credit were its due, to many new styles out their starting to look like Rebel, so Ladies and Gents, this is Rebel.
- Shut the fuck up and dance! ;)
