Book Description

25 Aug 2011

New York, 1979: a dance crew in the Bronx called the Rock Steady Crew introduces the world to the original and most popular dance of the hip hop world - BBoy dancing - where DJs create breaks in the music tracks for dancers to showcase their moves.

London, 1996: a small event known as the BBoy Championships is launched at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire to reignite the fire of the B-Boy movement, which then takes up home in the Brixton O2 Academy.

Over 15 years later, BBoy has set the world alight, with crews from the US to Scandinavia, the UK to the Far East competing in the UK BBoy Championships every year. In BBoy Championships: From Bronx to Brixton, the founder of the Championships, DJ Hooch, has brought together over 100 stunning full-colour images from 15 years of the ultimate BBoy competition; and explains the moves, styles, battles and crews that have taken the world by storm, showcasing the top BBoys and girls as they face off in the battle to end all battles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Photos!!! 4 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback
Am so happy to see such a credible book from one of my favourite events! With all the nonsense reality shows it's great to see the B-Boy Championships standing strong amongst the watered down rubbish that fills our tv screens.

This book brought back some great memories from the times I visited the champs! Some amazing shots of the bboys from all over the world with some great interviews that provide insight into the minds of these superheros!

Love it!
