Bust a move: Hip-hop classes

The hip-hop dancers on MTV’s “America’s Best Dance Crew” or the recent movie “Step Up 2 the Streets” make all their moves look easy, but their secrets to the magic don’t lie in sheer natural talent or superhero strength. Anyone can learn hip-hop -- take classes, understand the basics and practice, practice, practice. B-girl Valerie “Val Pal” Acosta has been breaking for a little over 2 years to master this freeze. You can see her perform with her dance crews: Underground Flow, Culture Shock LA, B-Geez, Freedom Junkies and Long Beach State’s PAC Modern Alumni.
