Toprock has a variety of steps which can each be varied according to the dancer’s expression (ie. aggressive, calm, excited). A great deal of freedom is allowed in the definition of toprock: as long as the dancer maintains cleanness, form and the b-boy attitude. The photos below demonstrate a basic toprock step, rocking back forth crossing your legs, and moving your arms showing bboy attitude. generally refers to any string of steps performed from a standing position.

is the most basic footwork sequence and serves as a foundation for more complicated footwork patterns. As the name implies the six step involves 6 steps. The standard version starts in push up position with the feet spread apart. To start, the left hand lifts, and the right foot is placed where that hand used to be. As weight shifts onto the right hand and foot, the left leg is moved up into the crook of the right knee.The right leg swings around in front of the right hand and comes down so that the bboy’s legs are in a crab position. Meanwhile, he switches hands so that the left hand returns to the ground and the right hand flies up. The left leg now swings around in a wide arc and wraps around the right. The right leg moves back into its original push-up spot. Lastly, the left leg pulls back while the right hand comes down to complete the push-up position. The breaker is now back in the starting position and may continue with step 1. The six step can done c-clockwise, or clockwise.Remember to always practice so that your mind instantly remembers the steps and it becomes muscle memory.
