Commonly, but incorrectly, referred to as “Break Dancing”, “B-Boying” or “Breaking” is a style of street dance that originated in New York City in the 1970’s.
While this art form has crossed generations and cultures, it remains one of the most popular forms of dance among urban youth.
Geoffrey Chang, also known as “Toyz Are Us”, has built a reputation as one of the most inspirational B-Boy dancers of his time.
“I think breaking is so captivating because I may not speak the same language as the people in Uganda or the Philippines, but I can understand if you’re a good dancer or not and they can do the same thing,” explains Chang.
