B-boying, often called “breakdancing”, is a popular style of street dance that was created and developed as part of hip-hop culture among African Americans and, later, among Latino youths in New York City.

The dance consists of four primary elements: toprock, downrock, power moves and freezes/suicides. It is danced to both hip-hop and other genres of music that are often remixed to prolong the musical breaks.
