Spotlight: Kinetic Art Crew

In the midst of an era when most bboying out there is in competetive jams and battles, it can be hard to define whether the dance is a sport or an artform. The Kinetic Art Crew definitely seems to push for the latter.
Consisting of members from Japan, they combine traditional bboy aspects with influences such as yoga, circus gymnastics, contemporary in order to show a softer, yet no less intense, side of bboying. Their poetic and breathtaking style goes to show that bboying is a multifaceted dance, and ever growing. Check them out on their tumblr, and in the following clips.
