Created within house parties during the 1970s in New York City, break dancing has since then evolved into a global phenomenon.

This 1.5 hour workshop will introduce students to fundamental techniques of the dance style (toprock, 6-step, basic freezes) as well as explore the socio-economic context from which the dance was born and how it serves as a tool for self-discovery, artistic expression, personal empowerment, and community building.

About DHB: Dwinelle Hall Breakers is a CAL campus organization founded in 2012 promoting community building through grassroots Hip-Hop values; peace, love, unity, and having fun. Prior to it’s official recognition as a student club, it had already built a 20 year legacy throughout the Bay Area/Worldwide b-boy/b-girl community in providing an all-inclusive space welcoming dancers to cultivate their art forms and advance their skills.
