B-boying incorporates many types of moves that can vary as widely as a breaker's imagination and athleticism will allow. The inventory of b-boy moves is extensive, and there are competitions throughout the world, with a growing number of dancers becoming sponsored entities.

Top Rocks

The Top Rock is a combination of steps done while standing up. This is the entry dance that Bboys and Bgirls use to start their set. These steps are done before you do a power set or before you go down to the floor. This is the breaker's chance to show how well he or she can rock the beat and/or make gestures to intimidate their opponent. The object is to make a connection with the song either by gesturing on a horn or rhythm section while your feet usually step on the "snare" of the drum/beat section. Names of steps vary upon regions. There are an infinite amount of toprocks, you're limited only by your imagination. (Note: Uprock was a jazz/rock dance which influenced top rock, uprock is not toprock)
  • Apache Step (commonly known as Indian Step but is wrong because there are several indian steps)
  • Uprock (not a toprock but bboys sometimes incorporate uprock movements)
  • Side Step

    • Bronx Rock
    • Brooklyn Rock

Floor Rocks

Floor Rocks are "rocking" or style moves performed while much of your body (hips and/or shoulders) are touching the floor. Although some moves may involve flowing or spinning like movements, they are not power moves. Floor Rocks are either used as transition moves (into a power move, freeze, etc.) or in between footwork.
  • Body Rock (aka Back Rock): A move in which you lay flat on your back and only torque you hip and legs, alternating left and right. This move is similar to the CC' in footwork, only being done with your shoulders and upper-back touching the ground. For example, your right foot will "tap" or "kick" over to your left while your left knee remains bent, then your left foot will "tap" or "kick" over to your right while your right knee remains bent.
  • Scissors: A move started while lying straight on your side, then bending your body in to touch your toes (simulating a scissor motion). Once you unbend and become straight again, you turn to your opposite side and repeat.
  • Belly Swim: While laying on your back, you splay out your arms to turn onto your belly then sweep your arms out in front of you to return to your back all while using a continuous "swimming" motion.
  • Body Glide: This move is similar to the belly swim but looks like the "superman" in power-moves because your legs and arms remain splayed as you turn over. Unlike only using your arms to "swim" you over (as done in a Belly Swim), a body glide requires you to swing your legs to "glide" your momentum for turning.
  • Side Slide: Performed on your side like a scissor, you kick a leg forward or backward spinning you on your hip axis. This move is like a side spin in power but more stylish with shorter rotation. Sometimes the forehead or hip is touched or, the arms are folded while rotating. Also, the dancer may scrunch in and freeze at the end.
  • Coffee Grinder/Helicopter: Go down on one bent leg standing on your toes with your hands on either side of your bent knee. Other leg is lying flat out on the floor beside you. Swing the leg that's on the ground. To avoid being hit by your swing leg; you pick up your hands and put them back on the floor, then use them to pick the rest of your body up lifting it over your swing leg. Drop your body and repeat.


Basic Terminology
  • Platform: The part(s) of the body that touch the ground, holding the rest of the Body in position. In other words, the supports of your freeze. Examples of platforms are: Hand, Elbow, Head, shoulder, back, belly, side, sometimes knee (see difference between Freeze and Pose). A freeze could have multiple platforms: The platform of a Tri-pod Headstand would be 2 hands and a head. The platform of a Baby Freeze is also 2 hands and a head, but the body is horizontal rather than vertical as in a Headstand.
  • Stab (breakdance move): The act of stabbing the elbow up into the abs, hip, side, or back. Your hands are on the floor holding your body up horizontally off the ground. Your entire body is balanced on that elbow making your fore-arm the fulcrum and is your primary support. Stabs are not required for all freezes; however, it is basic and a foundational requirement to advance to a greater level of moves and freezes. note: Stabs are required for: hand-glide, going into Windmill from hands, any Turtle variation (Pogos, Jackhammers), and Crab-Walks.
  • Suicide: A group of finishing moves that share some similarities to the freeze but are quite distinct, involve jumping into the air and landing on back, head,shoulder etc. to appear out of control.
  • Bridge: You are laying down on your back, then with your hands (up by your head) and your feet (by your bottom) on the ground, you push your hips up until you are arched like a bridge facing upwards. From a handstand you could fall backways into a bridge.
  • Beginner Freeze: A basic freeze in which you are on your back, high on your shoulders, the hands are on the back waist, and elbows stabbed on the ground.
  • Baby Freeze: A basic freeze in which one hand is stabbed and the head and opposite hand are used for balance in a tripod position. While both legs are held in the air commonly with the opposite leg's knee of the balancing arm is placed on the balancing arm.
  • Airbaby (Underground): A type of freeze with one knee resting on the corresponding elbow and both legs in the air. Note: the knee that is resting on the elbow should be bent.

  • Hong 10 Freeze/Halo freeze: A freeze popularized by Bboy Hong 10. Like a chair freeze, but with your legs in the air.
    • Dead halo freeze: A halo freeze with your legs or feet are nearly touching the ground.
  • One hand planche:A variation of the planche with only one hand supporting the body.The body is as perpendicular as possible to the supporting hand,making the one hand planche one of the hardest moves. Bboy Pop from Gamblerz is known for being the best performer of the move.
  • Planche push ups:The move is performed by lifting yourself into a full planche,doing push ups.Baisically,it's a push up with your whole body in the air except your supporting hands.

Power Moves

A Power Move is any type of move in Bboying which requires spinning and/or rotating in a way that can be done so in multiple rounds. All Power Moves (or series of a type of Power Move) can be connected in combos to form a "Power Combo". was the Float, Headmills, Flares, Airtwist,...etc and was the first Breakdancer to bring this style together with speed control and was considered the first king of combinations in 1984. Now Breakdancers all around the world has advance this Power Moves theory into a level beyond imagination. Breakdancers that use mostly (Power combos) in their sets are commonly known as "Power Heads". Example: Flare-Air Flare-Elbow Air Flare-Air Flare-1990 The possible number of combinations are endless and only limited by stamina, strength and imagination.
On American reality series America's Best Dance Crew, Ronnie from Super Cr3w & Full Force, performed a combination, with these moves in this order: Elbow Air Flare-Munchmill-Gorillas. Shane Sparks recalled hearing, there are only four people in the world that can do that combination.
  • Air Flare An advance powermove starting from a 1990 or windmill or halo or headspin position. The bboy goes into a handstand with his body diagnal to the ground and legs spread out into a V-shape. The legs are swung, like windmills/halos, in a circular motion. Using the momentum, the bboy switches from arm to arm as the body rotates in the air. The most difficult part of this move is the switching of the arms (while in the air) while the back of the bboy is facing the ground (the circular leg swing is most important in a hand transfer). It is recommended that this move is tried on mats with a supervisor.

Breakdance History

One of the major breakdance street culture pushes was Michael Jackson's Robot dance, first performed on television in 1974. The performance received a large following with many later breakdance pioneers further popularizing breakdance in the late 1970s.
Breakdance mulai menunjukan geliatnya ketika DJ Koll Herc mulai menghasilkan musik yang sedikit berbeda dengan musik-musik pada zaman tersebut. Sebuah musik Hip Hop dengan beat yang patah-patah atau biasa disebut dengan break beat. Ialah yang berjasa dalam menghasilkan musik yang dapat menginspirasi para breaker menciptakan gaya-gaya yang atraktif dan unik. Selain sebagai DJ yang menciptakan sebuah musik yang sangat pas untuk breakdance, Koll Herc juga termasuk salah satu senior di dunia musik Hip Hop. Ialah yang pada saat itu rela menjadikan tempat tinggalnya sebagai markas untuk komunitas ini.
Michael Jackson adalah orang yang mendorong pertumbuhan Breakdance. Jacko mulai memperkenalkan robot dance atau gerakan yang menyerupai robot pada lagu-lagu yang dibawakannya pada tahun 1974 di penampilan perdananya di televisi. Selain itu, di setiap penampilannya Jacko juga selalu membawakan berbagai macam gerakan yang cukup melegenda, salah satunya ialah moon-walk. Jacko juga selalu menemukan tarian-tarian baru yang membuat siapa saja yang melihatnya langsung penasaran dan mencoba mengikuti gerakan yang dibawakannya. Pada saat itu memang hanya Jacko yang cukup melegenda dengan tarian-tarian yang langsung menyebar seperti virus dan membuat orang-orang berusaha mengikuti gerakan-gerakan yang dibawakanya.
Jika dilihat lebih jauh, jenis tarian ini telah lahir jauh sebelum Michael Jackson tampil di pertunjukan yang menghebohkan dengan robot dance-nya tersebut. Sang legenda musik Funk James Brown telah menunjukan sebuah tarian yang sedikit banyak juga memiliki gerakan yang mirip dengan breakdance.
Perkembangan jenis tarian yang satu ini pun sangat pesat, bahkan beberapa komunitas di Amerika mulai terbentuk. Pada tahun 1980'an, breakdance sudah menjadi seperti fashion di Amerika. Hampir di setiap malam di beberapa bagian kota terdapat beberapa komunitas yang saling menunjukan kebolehannya dalam melakukan jenis tarian ini, walau tidak sedikit yang berujung pada keributan. Cara mereka berkompetisi memang sangat mirip dengan dengan freestyle yang biasa ditemukan pada musik Hip Hop. Tidak hanya di jalan-jalan saja tarian ini ditemukan, karena club dan party pun menjadi lahan empuk bagi para breaker untuk menunjukan kebolehannya.
Setelah sempat menjadi "sampah" di beberapa tempat umum tersebut, akhirnya breakdance mulai menunjukan kelasnya. Pada akhir tahun1980, mulai banyak kompetis breakdance yang resmi bermunculan dan Battle Of The Year merupakan salah satu kompetisi yang sangat berkelas. Kehadiran kompetisi ini langsung diikuti dengan berbagai kompetisi lainnya yang seara tidak langsung mengangkat kelas jenis tarian ini.

Breakdance adalah salah satu unsur dari 5 gaya Hip-Hop. 5 gaya Hip-Hop, yaitu : Mc, Dj, Gravity, Streetball, dan Breakdance. Breakdance memiliki macam-macam gerakan dasar/basic seperti top rock/up rock,footwork,freeze dan power moves.Breakdance memiliki macam-macam istilah/nama lain seperti breaking dan bboying.Breakdance datang dari Bronx,New York.Istilah " B-boy atau B-boying " dibuat oleh Kool Herc.B-boys memiliki arti break boy atau orang-orang yang melakukan breakdance.Seorang B-Boy harus bisa menguasai seluruh element gerakan/moves dalam breakdance.Ini masih menjadi kontroversi hingga kini dimana ada sebagian B-boy yang fokus pada Powermoves dan ada sebagian B-boy yang hanya fokus pada style dan skill individual seperti footwork dan freeze.Breakdance dulu bernama " Good Foot from James Brown ".Nigger Twins,Clark Kent dan Zulu Kings adalah nama-nama B-boy yang terkenal pada zamannya.Sayang pada tahun 1977 breakdance mulai hilang dan tidak terdengar lagi.Pada tahun 1990 breakdance kembali mulai terdengar dengan B-boy generasi terbaru.Breakdance datang kembali dengan gerakan-gerakan/moves baru seperti backspins dan windmills.Popularitas film-film Kung Fu seperti Bruce Lee juga banyak memberikan pengaruh pada moves-moves breakdance sebut saja seperti moves " chinese " dan tidak hanya Kung Fu,Capoera pun juga memberikan pengaruh pada moves breakdance.Pada tahun 1983 terdapat film yang pertama kali membahas breakdance yaitu Flashdance.Istilah " B-boying " berubah menjadi " Breakdance " dan menjadi sangat populer oleh media.Banyak orang berpendapat bahwa the godfather nya Breakdance adalah James Brown karena gaya menari yang dia tunjukkan banyak membuat kagum orang banyak.Dan musik-musik Breakdance atau biasa disebut Break Beats banyak yang terpengaruh oleh musik James Brown.
Tahun 1970 Kota Los Angeles san New York menjadi saksi kelahiran breakdance.Di New York ada DJ Herc,DJ Hip Hop pertama.Pionir B-boy di new york dan L.A adalah para geng yang mempertahankan diri dari serangan lawan.Karena itu banyak moves yang memperlihatkan keagresifan dan kekerasan selama di tahun ini.Sebagai contoh " Up Rock " terlihat sperti gerakan Kung Fu.Uprock adalah salah satu bagian/gerakan pertama di Breakdance.Dari Uprock kemudian menyebar menjadi moves-moves baru.Ketika banyak anak-anak muda banyak yang mulai melakukan breakdance,menjadi salah satu faktor cepatnya berkembang breakdance dan dengan breakdance mereka bisa mendapatkan uang dari penampilan mereka,selain ada menjadi resiko bagi hidup mereka untuk menjadi gangster.Seiring berjalannya waktu banyak B-boy yang melakukan " Battle " yaitu kompetisi antar tim/crew bisa jadi 1 on 1,3 on 3 atau 5 on 5.Sayang,media ketika itu mengidentikkan Hip-Hop dengan citra negatif seperti kekerasan,kriminal dan tukang buat masalah.Para dancer lokal New York memiliki tarian yang lebih halus yang dinamakan Popping,yang masih eksis hingga sekarang.Yang akhirnya populer di dalam disko dan pada tahun 1970.Pada waktu itu dinamakan The Robot

     Breakdance adalah tarian yg memadukan seluruh gaya. Breadance juga merupakan perpaduan dari beberapa unsur gerakan tergantung selera. jenis musik, maupun keahlian crew maupun breaker’s
Di dalam breakdance terdapat empat struktur pokok yaitu :
- Top Rock.
                        – Foot Work.
                        – Frezze.
                        – Power Move.
    Top Rock adalah gaya yang bertumpu pada gerakan kaki yang menari-nari, biasanya top rock dilakukan untuk menambah fondasi dari tarian tersebut, Top Rock juga harus mengikuti rythem atau ritme dari lagu yang dimainkan Dj, jadi kita tidak boleh membuat ritme sendiri. Karena dapat mengurangi penilaian jika melakukan battle.
    Foot Work hampir sama dengan top rock, tetapi foot work biasa di lakukan dengan tubuh dibawah, contoh beberapa gerakan foot work : Helicopter, 3 step, 6 step, sweep, dll. Dalam foot work juga breaker’s (sebutan untuk bboying cowo maupun cewe) harus mengikuti ritme dari lagu yang dimainkan.
    Frezze adalah gaya yang dipakai di akhir maupun di tengah – tengah tarian kita,frezze gerakan yang sangat – sangat membutuhkan kekuatan fisik, jika fisik tidak terlalu kuat, frezze yang dilakukan juga hanya sebentar (berkisar 1 detik – 3 detik) dan frezze yang di lakukan juga frezze tingkat mudah atau rendah. Contoh gerakan – gerakan frezze : baby frezze, chair, air baby, dll. Di sini breaker’s tidak harus mengikuti ritme dari musik, tetapi jika breaker’s ingin melakukan frezze harus disertai waktu yang tepat agar terlihat lebih baik atau menambah nilai didalam battle.
    Power Moves adalah tarian yang melibatkan kekuatan tubuh dan kelenturan tubuh, biasanya power moves dan frezze yang membuat orang tertarik dalam breakdance, karena gaya – gayanya mempunyai tingkat kesulitan yang tinggi. Power Moves tidak harus juga mengikuti ritme musik tetapi jika bisa mengikuti mungkin bisa menambah nilai dalam battle, contoh power moves : 1990’s, 2000’s, windmill, turtle, flare, headspin, handspin, dll.
