Dance: Toprock Dance Battle

This week our all of our Year 9 classes at St Andrews International School Bangkok presented their toprock choreography in a dance battle.

Our Year 9 classes have been learning a Breakdance Unit focusing on the element of Toprock. Toprock is an important component of breakdance that is mainly performed in a standing position with challenging footwork, fluidity, and individual style. Our students were taught several basic movements of Toprock such as Outlaw, Kick-step, Indian Step or Hip twists, Spin drop, and a popular move called the 6 step. This week we ended the Breakdance unit with a dance composition that they have been working on in the last 3 weeks. Each class divided themselves in partners or groups to create their own choreography using Toprock movements and New Style grooves. To experience the world of breakdance, students get to present their work through a dance battle. On battle day, each group gets to randomly choose another group to battle with. Their classmates, the audience gets to vote the winner for each battle round. Winners of each round will battle each other in the final round. Each class then chooses a winner in the final round to represent their class in the Toprock Championship battle with the other Year 9 winners in Term 2. Here are some highlights of their performances...
