Breakdance seems so different from all other kinds of dancing that the first question people ask when they see it is: “Where did these kids learn to dance like that?” To many people, this type of dance seems to have come out of nowhere. But like everything else, Breakdance did come from somewhere, something and someone. If you’ve ever seen James Brown on TV or at the concert, then you know he could really get down. And when he performed his hit, he did the kind of dance you’d expect James Brown to do. High Energy.
This almost acrobatic dance was, appropriately enough known as the lot of kids around New York City. By the time the Good Foot became the new dance style, the tradition of dance battle was well established and this new dance spread world wide under the name break dance or street dance. And after the fall of communism in Czech Republic this dance came also to our country.
Because we always support young people here one month ago we organized a big breakdance event “BudWars II”. 36 break dance and street dance crews from the whole Czech Republic and Slovakia came to the city of České Budějovice, where our famous beer Budweiser (not the American copycat) came from. All guys wanted to win 21 000 Kč:). But this dance is of course more about love and unity and this event had a very special atmosphere.
There were also workshops, discussion and party of course:). See more photos and movie from that amazing day.
Thank you all for the cooperation and unforgettable vibe!
