Asked in Break Dancing
Why is break dancing called break dancing?
Break dancing was invented in the 1970s, as an alternative to fighting between rival street gangs. They would dance, and the winners would earn respect and also make rules (such as the losing team getting out of their territory). Eventually, music accompanied the dancing, which consisted of the disc jockey looping the rhythmic sections of dance records. These sections came to be known as "breaks" or "breakbeats." This is where breakdance got its name from.
