History of the word “Breakdancing” by Crazy Legs
About a week ago, In a phone call with Legs he started telling me the history of the word “Breakdancing” a history I knew about because of a conversation we had about 2 years ago when we decided to release this graphic on @TheBboySpot Instagram page:
This is what Legs had to say:
In all respect to the history of our dance and culture, we bboys/bgirl should NEVER EVER label ourselves “breakdancers” or our dance “breakdance”. It was not created by us and its not for us.
The media has destroyed our history, lets not collaborate by tarnishing it from the inside out.
