What is Krumping?

Krumping is a fast and aggressive freestyle solo dance, allowing dancers to release their inner feelings, anger and aggression characterised by rapid, exaggerated movements of the arms and legs. Isolating parts of the body so that one body part is rigid, whilst the other is swinging, stomping, or popping, is a key component of Krumping. Krumping is a street dance style.

Krumping ethos, "it doesn't matter what you do, u just gotta do it with purpose, conviction, and, most importantly, passion". Performances are rarely choreographed, danced upright to upbeat and fast-paced music.

Krump stands for "Kingdom Radically Uplifted Mighty Praise." It was started by Tight Eyez, Lil C, Big Mijo, Slayer, and Hurricane. Krumping originated in the Black community of South Central Los Angeles, California as an alternative to street violence.
