B-Boying (Breaking) Classes in Delhi

Updated on May 28, 2018

BREAKING

Breaking, also called B-Boying or Breakdancing, is a dynamic style of dance which developed as part of the hip-hop culture. Breaking is one of the major elements of hip-hop culture. Like many aspects of hip hop culture, breakdance borrows heavily from many cultures, including 1930s-era street dancing, Afro-Brazilian and Asian Martial arts, Russian folk dance and the dance moves of James Brown, Michael Jackson, and California Funk styles. Breaking took form in the South Bronx in the 1970s alongside the other elements of hip-hop.

In the 2002 documentary film The Freshest Kids: A History of the B-Boy, DJ Kool Herc describes the “B” in B-boy as short for breaking, which at the time was slang for “going off”, also one of the original names for the dance. However, early on, the dance was known as the “boing” (the sound a spring makes). Dancers at DJ Kool Herc’s parties saved their best dance moves for the break section of the song and got in front of the audience to dance in their distinctive and frenetic style. The “B” in B-boy also stands simply for break, as in break-boy (or girl). Breaking was also documented in Style Wars, and later also came into focus in fictional films such as Wild Style and Beat Street. Rock Steady Crew and New York City Breakers had big contributions in the evolution of B-Boying as a dance form. B-Boying is indeed truly a crowd enthralling performance. Underground B-Boying battles are common in Delhi and many of our students successfully take part in them.

COURSE DESCRIPTION: 

 Breaking is divided into four parts

  • Top rock

  • Down rock

  • Freezes

  • Power Moves

This is a beginning level dance course with no experience required. The students will be taught various techniques like CC, Cork Screw, Six Step, Baby Freeze, Chair Freeze, Windmill, Jack Hammer, etc. and combinations of several techniques. Combinations of techniques will be performed to Rap or Breakbeats music. Individual work and partner work will be emphasized on in the class.

ATTIRE:

Loose, baggy comfortable clothing is appropriate for Hip Hop which will provide complete freedom of movement. Jeans are not allowed. Sneakers and Running shoes can be worn, but they must have non-marking soles and must be clean (we encourage separate pairs of shoes for classes).  Other types of street shoes are not allowed. Jewellery such as bracelets, necklaces, and large hoop earrings are not allowed, for the safety of the students. Knee pads are recommended.

He has the patience to take you from being a newbie to a serious B-boy/B-girl. Talk about windmill, air flare or any move he does it all.

Dance Away that Flab

Can't decide between the gym and dancing to lose that extra weight or to stay fit in general? Here's a list of dance forms taught at Delhi Dance Academy with the average calories burnt in 1 hour:

Zumba: 500-1000
Aerobics: 500-800
Jazz Contemporary: 400-600
Bharatnatyam: 400-600
Hip-Hop: 350-550
Belly dance: 250-450
Bollywood: 300
Salsa: 200-300

These numbers vary with your body weight and the amount of effort you put in.

How can I lose weight?
You lose weight when you consume or burn more calories than you take. Burning 3500 calories means you lose 1 lbs or 450 grams (almost half a Kilo) of weight.

In other words, if you cut 500 calories from your diet each day or burn 500 calories working out or dancing, you would lose 0.45 kgs in a week. :)

At Delhi Dance Academy we can also talk to you about your daily diet and recommend changes to help you lose weight.

Delhi Dance Academy has been featured on 24 x 7 News Channel as one of Delhi's best dance institutes. We have made recent appearances on TV Channels like BBC, Aajtak, E TV, NHK World, MTv and NDTV Goodtimes. We are among the top 50 activities to do while in Delhi by TripAdvisor with excellent reviews.
