What are the 3 Parts of Foundation B-Boying?

The illusion for a lot of dancing is that people tell themselves that they can't do it. What they're seeing is simply the sum of it's parts. Everything is just a combination of smaller pieces. Foundation B-boying is broken down to three fundamental parts:

  1. Top Rocks The part of b-boying where you're dancing up top. Think of this as your epic introduction to your dance.
  2. Footwork This is where you're showing of your fancy footwork on the floor making everyone think that this dance is complex, when in reality you know otherwise.
  3. Freezes This is the period at the end of every sentence. This is where you finish your dance not with a bang, but with a calm, cool, and controlled freeze.

Throughout the 22 lectures you'll quickly learn:

  • The elements of foundation breakdancing.
  • The history of breakdancing.
  • How to top rock, do foot work, and freeze
  • How to piece all the moves together
  • Methods to train at home so you improve faster

How long will the course take?

The course can take about a month to really understand all the moves and another month to really master them depending on how much you practice.

The beauty of this course is that you can go at your own rate, build confidence in your dance, and show off to your friends and family.

I hope you guys enroll and find that this is the best mini b-boy course out there. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!

Intro to Bboying

As a dancer and an instructor of B-boying, I believe it's a responsibility of mine to share the history of this art form. You'll learn where the dance was created, who influenced it, and it's evolution throughout the years.

Brief History of B-Boying

B-boying is one of the most athletic dances that exist today. It's important to warm up and prep your muscles for the type of movement it's about to do. These are also exercises that will support you in improving your dance.
