Krump is one of the new school street dance styles, that was born in the United States in the 90’s. It is characterized by a free, expressive, exaggerated and hyper-energetic movement. Some basic steps, such as “the arm swings”, “chest pops”, “stomps”, “tricks”, “syncs”, “kill-offs”, “amp ups”, and “character moves”, accompany the style. The word “Krump” comes from the initials of the words “Kingdom, Radically, Uplifted, Mighty, Praise”. For the young dancers, who started Krump, it was a way to escape gang life and release anger, aggression, and frustration positively and non-violently. You can learn more about the history of Krump from the movie called “Rize”.
