As a break-dancer myself, I want to talk about the history of break dancing in the project. The scenes displayed are developed from the movie "Beat Street" in 1984, in which Rock Steady Crew (blue) won the battle against New York City Breakers (red). By combining text from interviews of dancers in the movie in the 21st century, I try to address the context where street dancers grow up in 1970s and 1980s.
