a media term for bboying.
Bboying is a style of dance originated in the early 1970s in New York city and was mass published to the whole world in the movie "Flashdance" in 1983 which featured New York's hip-hop scene.

Breakdance is also known as Bboying(break boying), it is one of the hiphop elements. Breakdance has alot of moves that we can show though toprocking, footwork, powermoves and our own style if we have one.

also known as b-boying, the main aspect of the dance element of hip-hop, ahead of popping, locking, crumping etc. A dance created by afro-americans that evolved from popping and locking, which involves style, smoothness, strength and self-control. There are 2 aspects, style which is dependant on your own personal dancing style, consisting of toprock, footwork,, the way you transition moves and of course random disses towards opponents during battle. Power consists of the moves the public wants to see, spinning on heads, windmills, hopping around on one arm such as the hand hop or jackhammer etc. Current pioneers and present time legends include Kujo from the USA and B-boy Junior from France.
*starts off with a toprock which is immensely lame, goes for a sweep but makes a poor landing, reaks out into basic footwork including 6 and 4 step, before attempting a swipe on falling on ass* WOOO! I'M GOOD! OK, maybe I need some practice, dammit....
