The Dynamic Rockers crew is dedicated to the preservation and evolution of the art form of Breaking. We aspire to create standards and business opportunities for the dance. As artists we are determined to enhance one's skills and influence personal growth. Since the crew was founded in 1979, its leaders have strived to push the limits and support what the dance is today. Current president Kid Glyde, handed the torch by his father, legendary b-boy Glyde of the original Dynamic Rockers, continues to work hard to keep the legacy alive, not only for the Dynamic Rockers but also the entire Breaking community. We believe that it is crucial to know the origins of the dance, along with its culture and traditions that have been passed down through generations. The Dynamic Rockerswould love to share theirs and give back to the dance what it has given us: life. As the crew would say in regards to living life to its fullest potential: "Dynamic Out!”
