Description
 
Foundation: B-boys, B-girls and Hip-Hop Culture in New York

Language: English

Format: Paperback Book

176 pages

B-boying is a form of Afro-diasporic competitive dance that developed in the Bronx in the early 1970s.

Widely - though incorrectly - known as "breakdancing," it is often dismissed as urban acrobatics set to music.

In reality, b-boying is a deeply traditional and profoundly expressive art form that has been passed down from teacher to student for almost four decades.

Based on interviews with some of the dance's most significant figures as well as on four years of on-the-ground research in New York City, Foundation offers the first serious study of b-boying as both a unique dance form and a manifestation of the most fundamental principles of hip hop culture.

Accurate, Informative, Complete Discussion
Reviewer: Barry Rabkin / BBoy GRIZ from Pittsburgh, PA  
I've stayed up late the last 3 nights reading Foundation and I haven't been this impressed with a Documentary on BBoy Culture since I first saw Freshest Kids.  Foundation has Schloss's own deep insights as well as interviews with OG's like Ken Swift, King Uprock, Tiny Love, Trac 2, Fabel and Many More Pioneers.  Foundation explores the roots, growth, pioneers, soul and future of bboying with a unique voice that is both academic and true to the culture.  I'd recommend it to anyone interested in BBoying.  Whether your just learning your 6 step or you've been ruling Cyphers since the 80's, Schloss will carpet bomb you with fresh science.
