This contest is fueled by the following news: Break-dance is the base dance on the world hip-hop culture. It originated in New York in 1969 under the name "Good Foot", when James Brown demonstrated his famous dance "Get on the Good Foot" to the public. The break dance has set the start for many dancing trends of hip-hop. Every year, break dancing is becoming more and more popular; breakers are in demand in commercial projects (TV shows, advertisements, clips etc.) and are becoming an integral part of show business. The break-dance, consisting of technically difficult elements, demands special physical-acrobatic preparation. Among modern dances, break-dancing is the most extreme and poses stringent requirements to the physical strength and endurance of the dancer. However, break dancing consists of not only developing power and endurance spinning or power moves (twisted elements and the bonds between them spinning on the head, jumping on hands, turning on hands or on one hand by 360, 720 or by, moving the feet round the body with support of the hands) and freezing (the fixing of the body position while performing certain element), but also top break dancing requires the technical work of the body style/footwork (so-called rounds) and top or up rock (moving from foot to foot before coming to a bottom element), which will allow you to use the creative abilities apart from physical strength in dances. Stunning inventiveness, with which the breakers perform their foot work, power movements and friezes indicate that self-realization limits do not exist in break dancing. Break dancing makes you athlete and the creator and gives you an opportunity to develop a unique style. Traditionally, the break dance is considered a man's dance but many girls have achieved recognition in this form of dance too. If you do not fear bruises and injuries and are ready for a dance and someone who do not recognize compromises and limitations the break dancing is for you.
