"Krumping" (AKA: Breakdancing >_>)

    I discovered this style of dance from searching for the song titles after watching the movie "Stomp the Yard" (Which, contrary to the imdb reviews, wasn't that bad).
    They call it krumping but to me, it looks like a similar variant of Breakdancing. It's very fast, very aggressive. Some say they use it as a juvenile outlet, as opposed to, y'know, murder... Or something.

    None of the following links are rickrolls, I assure you.

    My favorite Krump songs:

    Actual dancing:

    Krump Kings, considered the best Krump team out there (as far as I can gather);

    How would that work o_O

    I'm considering self-teaching myself to Krump. Might be a lot of move-stealing, but then again I will do it purely for family entertainment and not youtube posting, so it should be fine.

    Krumping spends less time on the floor and is mostly with the arms and upper body.
    Small trend: Hats are thrown about sometimes.

    That's about it.

    clearly you'd record your ventures in the sport and try to one-up each other, and post it in the group section.. actually, hell even post it in here as some would get a kick out of it anyway :p

    Meh, Like I said I'd only dance for family entertainment, like at parties. LOTS of move-stealing from numerous videos. And maybe some of my own if I'm really feelin' the music.

    that was amazing... i almost lost my drink reading that.

    Actually got out and did some real dancing last night (not packed club, bobbing around because you can't move dancing) for the first time in a long time. Always have to bring a couple girls with me to make me look good, but it's a good time.

    a b-boy (or b-girl) is someone who breakdances. the B stands for break in fact.
