About the Piece

Castingshows vs. B-Boys, dance instructions vs. freestyle, commercial hip hop vs. keeping it real and of course we will also discuss the critical question of correct style.

Tales of the Funky - B-Boys & Breakgirls is a continuation of the project "Routines”, developed by Christoph Winkler in 2006 as part of a coaching project for young dancers.
