Frequently asked questions
How much do break dancers make?
Breakdancers don't have a standard salary, and they can earn anywhere from around $50 to a few hundred, or even a few thousand dollars for a performance. What each break dancer earns will depend very much on their skills, reputation and the type of performance.
Some of the more well-known breakdancers also earn money through sponsorships and merchandise sales, while others may make extra cash teaching classes. And some may not make any money from dancing at all and may just dance for the love of it!
What are the 4 categories of break dancing and hip hop?
Breakdancing is commonly divided into four different elements, which are toprock, downrock, freezes and power moves. These are generally used in combination to create an entire dance routine.
Toprock is a series of footwork steps performed while standing up, often used to set the rhythm and start the dance. Any footwork performed while standing up is referred to as toprock.
Downrock involves any movements on the floor, especially those where the dancer has their hands on the floor. It can also involve kneeling moves.
Freezes are impressive moves that use upper body strength to hold the dancer off the floor. The performer will hold the pose for a brief moment, often in dramatic and impressive positions, to punctuate the dance and showcase their control and balance.
Power moves are acrobatic and athletic techniques, such as flips and spins, used to add excitement and difficulty to the dance. They require a lot of strength and skill and are typically the most powerful or visually impactful elements of breakdancing.
What does a break dancer do?
Break dancers perform breakdancing, a style of street dance that began in the poorer neighbourhoods of New York in the 1970s, along with the hip-hop movement. It was an important way that disenfranchised youths could express themselves creatively.
Breakdancing involves a combination of footwork, spins, flips, and other acrobatic and athletic movements set to music. Nowadays breakdancing is much more mainstream and break dancers often perform in competitions, dance battles, and shows, either solo or as part of a crew.
Are break dancers strong?
Break dancers are generally very physically strong and athletic as this type of dance involves a lot of acrobatic and athletic movements, such as spins, flips, and balances, which need a lot of strength, control, and endurance. These dancers will often spend a lot of time training and conditioning their bodies to perform these physically demanding moves, building strength and improving their flexibility and coordination.
But strength alone doesn't make you a great break dancer. Creativity, musicality, and style are also important elements of breakdancing, and top dancers usually have a unique and captivating presence on the dance floor.
What are break dancers called?
Breakdancers are also called other names, depending on the context and the region. They can also be called breakers, b-boys, or b-girls. If they are specialists in certain types of breakdancing they can also be called poppers or lockers depending on the specific dance styles or techniques they perform, such as popping and locking.
What is a female break dancer called?
A female break dancer can be called a b-girl which is short for breakgirl. This gender-specific term is used to distinguish female breakdancers from male breakdancers, who are called b-boys. B-girls are an integral part of the breakdancing community and bring their own unique style and energy to the dance floor, inspiring and captivating audiences with their skill and creativity.
Even though they have gender-specific terms, in reality, the breakdancing community doesn't put a big emphasis on gender and the role it plays in determining a breakdancer's ability or success. Breakdancing is a form of self-expression for everyone and both breakgirls and breakboys use it to communicate through movement.
