About the Workshop
Tony Ingram is a physical therapist and dancer from Newfoundland, Co-founder of East Rock Crew, Concrete Roots Dance Company, Street Movement Dance Company, invited performer to Canada Dance Festival 2007 & 2008, and owner of website bboyscience.com – aimed at educating dancers on injury prevention, and advocating dance science and the benefits of dance to the public.
Breaking, or B-Boying / B-Girling (also known as break-dancing) began in the 70’s as the first Hip-Hop dance. Today it’s as big as ever, with a rich history that has shaped street dancing throughout the world.
This workshop focuses on the basic elements of the dance: top-rock, get-downs, footwork, freezes and power, as well as important concepts such as musicality, originality, and style – concepts that compliment any dance style!
Learning the fundamentals of breaking can help develop a foundation of dynamic movement and an appreciation of the original history of Hip-Hop dance, as well as the music and culture that started it all.
