“For the break of your life! Push it to pop it! Rock it to lock it! Break it to make it!”

Lucinda Dickey, Adolpho “Shabba-Doo” Quinones and Michael “Boogaloo Shrimp” Chambers pump up the jam as a struggling trio of dancers – jazz for her, break for them – taking on a rival crew, Electro Rock (consisting of poppers Poppin’ Pete, Poppin’ Taco and Lollipop) in a professional dance competition. They also struggle to overcome scorn from Kelly’s dance instructor, Franco, who disapproves of her hybrid dance style and affiliation with “street dancers.” Packed with fast-paced moves, furious jives and featuring the smash hits “Breakin’ … There’s No Stoppin’ Us” and “Freakshow on the Dance Floor”.
