Flying Steps Dance Crew Brings Break Dancing to an International Audience
March 21, 2019
In the 1970s, a new dance caught on in Brooklyn and the Bronx. A generation later, it has taken root in cities all around the world and is now an influential part of German culture. Flying Steps, a Berlin-based dance crew, have their own take on the utility and musicality of break dancing. Their performances feature an eclectic mix of hip-hop and classical works written by composers like Johann Sebastian Bach.
This October, Flying Steps held a public performance in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC as a part of the Wunderbar Together kick-off event. After learning about break dance from American movies in the 1990s, dancers were excited to bring their unique style to the United States.
For the members of Flying Steps, touring the birthplace of break dancing has been a lifelong dream. Each of their performances is an opportunity to bring communities together and connect with diverse audiences from across the country.
