Hip Hop/Breakdance Crew
Vancouver based hip hop & break dance troupe is led by Jheric Hizon (B-Boy “Twist”). The group has been performing for many years and are versed in Hip-hop and Break Dancing, a style of dance that includes a variety of styles.
Break Dancing was developing in New York while other Hip Hop styles were being created in California. Dance styles such as roboting, bopping, hitting, locking, bustin', popping, boogaloo, strutting, sac-ing, and dime-stopping.
As breaking, locking, and popping gained popularity in the 1980s, hip-hop social dancing started to develop. The previously mentioned dances are a sample of the many that have appeared since hip-hop developed into a distinct dance style. Like hip-hop music, hip-hop social dancing continues to change as new songs are released and new dances are created to accompany them.
B-Boy Twist believes that the art of dance has the power to influence and affect change in the world. His mission is to inspire and empower lifelong artistic awareness through actualizing natural creative capacities, using the power of music and the art of dance. This crew is proud to nurture and encourage creativity and inspire, motivate and bring everyone together to share in the passion and joy of the arts.
