Cult Movie Essentials: Breakin’ (1984)

Directed by Joel Silberg, Breakin’ (aka Breakdance) was attempt by Hollywood to tap into popular culture. It created a formula that is still seen in dance films today. The film followed a young classical dancer named Kelly Bennett (Lucinda Dickey) who is viewed as a very gifted prospect by her traditionalist choreographer Franco (Ben Lokey).

Kelly has a friend called Adam (Phineas Newborn III) who introduces her to two dancers from the wrong side of the tracks Ozone (Adolfo ‘Shabba Doo’ Quiñones) and Turbo (Michael ‘Boogaloo Shrimp’ Chambers).

Soon Kelly becomes friends with Ozone and Turbo and they form a dance team. This causes conflict with Franco who has no respect for street dancing, yet still tries a creepy come-on on Kelly resulting in her quitting his studio. To make matters worse Kelly fails at a prestigious dance audition. Dehejected she wanders into a break dancing event and watched Ozone and Turbo lose to a break dance crew known as Electro Rock.

Soon the three regroup as a dance trio, and backed by Kelly’s agent friend James (Christopher McDonald) they are ready to take on the world!
