    She transcended her daily experiences, if only in that brief moment; she was free of any oppression in those moment. Like her, I was able to become something more, and to let go, to be free in those moments through dance. Clowning style and its evolution into Krumping, by the former students, were a new concept to me. I have seen similar styles with absolutely no knowledge of the background. At first, it seems off-putting, harsh, angry, and violent. Then, taking a deeper look, you begin to understand the dynamics. I have no experience with the urban lifestyle or of ethnic oppression.

I commend Tommy the Clown for his outreach to the children. He gave them hope and a way to express feelings without hurting others or themselves; he gave them something worthwhile to belong to, the sum is greater than its parts the saying goes, Tommy the Clown gave those children a gift. He gave them a positive outlet and forward outlook. Tommy was sincere and caring, it was obvious and was contagious. His creative dance form in response to the violence was, and remains, commendable. Krumping, carried Clowning to the next step. It was certainly meant for the older teens to me. You could feel their pent up energy, wound tight as a spring, waiting to explode at any moment. What first appeared as harsh, well it was harsh. Yet, when compared to the…

    Elizabeth Ross is the owner of a dance company in Birmingham called DANCEe. Last year, she choreographed a performance based on the storybook Where The Wild Things Are. This performance was a combination of contemporary “modern” dance and hip-hop. Both of these styles are very misunderstood, and many people do not consider them as actual dance. Both styles are legitimate art. They have a lot of hard work put into them, and can bring you some type of enjoyment. That enjoyment can be emotional or…

    As something new and you haven’t experience before, you’ll never know what you are capable of. The power of a human is from themselves; their hands, their body, their mind. We all have the capability of either sticking to what we are comfortable with, or we can take on the challenge of something new. Hip-hop dancing has been my solid ground where I stood over the course of eight years. As I grow, I want to start learning how I can transcend my skills and discover something new. As part of my…

    dancing is referred to as “krumping”. Our lecture notes define krumping as, “A highly energetic, exaggerated, and expressive, is seen as a way for the disenfranchised urban African American population to release, in a nonviolent way, the anger, frustration, and aggression that they feel as a result of the racial prejudice, systematized socioeconomic, and physical violence they face daily” (Lecture, Street Styles and Social Media). This is exactly what is happening in this scene. The two women…

Krump used to be done in the streets, since it’s a street dance, but now it’s done in studios, at competitions, or seen in movies or music videos.

Tango’s spiritual context is to just have fun and connect with one another. The Tango is more of a cultural dance while Krumping is…

    nothing wrong but praised her for her innovative and pioneering work improving America’s electronic security procedures. Why do you assume a woman can’t handle classified materials as well as a man, sexist? No one was killed in Benghazi. In fact, there is no such thing as Benghazi. Or Libya.
