Summary "This film explores the evolution of hip hop, from its inception where audiences were charmed by acrobatic moves to present day where choreography applies ballet, sports maneuvers, circus performances and other dance genres while still remaining authentic to its original philosophy. Yet, all over the world, hip hop crews are still largely ignored by the official art scene and denied opportunities to perform on national stages--except in France. With interviews from renowned choreographers Riyad Fghani, Anthony Egéa and Mourad Merzouk, viewers follow several of France's most prestigious dance crews."--From publisher.
