The first major breakdancing film, Breakin' has the twin advantages of freshness and boundless energy. Lucinda Dickey plays a dancing student who dislikes the hidebound regimen of her demanding teacher. She breaks free from terpischorean tradition when she befriends a bunch of street kids devoted to breakdancing. Yes, it's basic Mickey Rooney-Judy Garland stuff, right down to the Big Audition at the finale. Still, Breakin' is a most engaging time capsule, highlighting a wealth of top-ten musical hits as well as such stars-in-the-making as "Shabba-Doo" (Adolfo Quinones), "Boogaloo Shrimp" (Michael Chambers) and "Ice T" (Tracey Morrow). Within a year of its release, Breakin' spawned a sequel, Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo.

If you want to see a movie that brought hip-hop,break dancing and B-boys into the lime light of society, an great way to slip our culture into the culture of the masses, this was the movie, full of Politically correctness but still giving you a good taste of what was the future of dance and music
