Breakdance The Movie
Pop culture was never the same after Breakdance (aka Breakin’) erupted onto movie screens across the globe in 1984. Exposing the mainstream world to the raw energy and intensity of pop-locking and breakdancing, the film showcased the talents of the dance movement’s top superstars as well as featuring a special appearance by rap icon Ice-T.
Lucinda Dickey, Adolfo “Shabba Doo” Quinones and Michael “Boogaloo Shrimp” Chambers star as a struggling trio of dancers who take on a rival gang in a battle to determine the best dance crew in the streets. Featuring one unforgettable dance sequence after another, including Boogaloo Shrimp’s legendary street-sweeping scene, Breakdance paved the way for countless urban hip-hop films to come.
