VIDEO: THE INFLUENCE OF AFRICAN DANCING: CLIP FROM THE FILM RIZE

KRUMPING

CLIP FROM THE FILM RIZE

Krumping is a street dance popularized in the United States that is characterized by free, expressive, exaggerated, and highly energetic movement. The African-American youths who started krumping saw the dance as a way for them to escape gang life and “to release anger, aggression and frustration positively, in a non-violent way.”

The root word “Krump” came from the lyrics of a song in the 1990s. It is sometimes spelled K.R.U.M.P., which is a backronym for Kingdom Radically Uplifted Mighty Praise, presenting krumping as a faith-based artform. Krumping was created by two dancers: Ceasare “Tight Eyez” Willis and Jo’Artis “Big Mijo” Ratti in South Central, Los Angeles during the early 2000s. Clowning is the less aggressive predecessor to krumping and was created in 1992 by Thomas “Tommy the Clown” Johnson in Compton, California. In the 1990s, Johnson and his dancers, the Hip Hop Clowns, would paint their faces and perform clowning for children at birthday parties or for the general public at other functions as a form of entertainment. In contrast, krumping focuses on highly energetic battles and dramatic movements[3] which Tommy describes as intense, fast-paced, and sharp. CBS News has compared the intensity within krumping to what rockers experience in a mosh pit. “If movement were words, krumping would be a poetry slam.” Krumping was not directly created by Tommy the Clown; however, krumping did grow out of clowning. Ceasare Willis and Jo’Artis Ratti were both originally clown dancers for Johnson but their dancing was considered too “rugged” and “raw” for clowning so they eventually broke away and developed their own style. This style is now known as krumping. Johnson eventually opened a clown dancing academy and started the Battle Zone competition at the Great Western Forum where krump crews and clown crews could come together and battle each other in front of an audience of their peers.

“Expression is a must in krump because krump is expression. You have to let people feel what you’re doing. You can’t just come and get krump and your krump has no purpose.”

David LaChapelle’s documentary Rize explores the clowning and krumping subculture in Los Angeles. He says of the movement: “What Nirvana was to rock-and-roll in the early ’90s is what these kids are to hip-hop. It’s the alternative to the bling-bling, tie-in-with-a-designer corporate hip-hop thing.” LaChapelle was first introduced to krump when he was directing Christina Aguilera’s music video “Dirty”. After deciding to make a documentary about the dance, he started by making a short film titled Krumped. He screened this short at the 2004 Aspen Shortsfest and used the positive reaction from the film to gain more funding for a longer version. In 2005, this longer version was released as Rize and screened at the Sundance Film Festival, the Auckland International Film Festival, and several other film festivals outside the United States.

Aside from Rize, krumping has appeared in several music videos including Madonna’s “Hung Up”, Missy Elliott’s “I’m Really Hot”, The Black Eyed Peas’ “Hey Mama”, and Chemical Brothers “Galvanize”. The dance has also appeared in the movie Bring It On: All or Nothing, the television series Community, and the reality dance competitions So You Think You Can Dance and America’s Best Dance Crew. Russell Ferguson, the winner of the sixth season of So You Think You Can Dance, is a krumper. The original web series The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers also featured krumping in season one during the fifth episode, “The Lettermakers”.

Style
There are four primary moves in krump: jabs, arm swings, chicken breast pops, and stomps.[6] Krumping is rarely choreographed; it is almost entirely freestyle (improvisational) and is danced most frequently in battles or sessions rather than on a stage. Krumping is different stylistically from other hip-hop dance styles such as b-boying and turfing. Krumping is very aggressive and is danced upright to upbeat and fast-paced music, whereas b-boying is more acrobatic and is danced on the floor to break beats. The Oakland dance style turfing is a fusion of popping and miming that incorporates storytelling and illusion. Krumping is less precise than turfing and more freestyle. Thematically, all these dance styles share common ground including their street origins, their freestyle nature, and the use of battling. These commonalities bring them together under the umbrella of hip-hop dance.

Let us not forsake one another. Because all we have is each other. And that should be more than enough.

 I look at her…

And she reminds me of a lot of people that I care about.

Friends and family.

And I just wonder…

How can people like ISIS be so cruel.

So heartless.

Yes, those people that they killed were of no importance to them.

They were strangers.

But even those ISIS members have family.

They have friends.

They have people they care about.

People that they don’t want to see hurt.

People that they don’t want to lose.

And if they know that feeling…

Then why would they ever put someone else through that same feeling?

Why would they make themselves be the reason for why a mother and father no longer get to see their son and daughter?

To hold them?

To tell them they love them?

These people are not born cruel.

They are made this way because someone along the way started feeding them lies.

It is not enough to just go to war and kill members of ISIS.

We must also show compassion and lend a helping hand to those that are left behind and that actually want to live in peace.

You cannot just leave children in a wasteland and expect them to be okay.

You cannot expect them to grow up with a kind heart when you leave them with nothing but rubble and devastation.

Yes, kill ISIS, but then help the rest to get back on their feet.

Let us not forsake one another.

Because all we have is each other.

And that should be more than enough.
