About Style Elements Crew

Since taking the international bboy scene by storm in the 1990s, SEC has gone on to win many of the world’s biggest dance competitions, deliver awe-inspiring theatrical performances across the globe, and choreograph music videos and stage shows for A-listers like Justin Timberlake, the Black Eyed Peas, Christina Aguilera and Missy Elliot. Members of Style Elements have also been featured dancers in the famous Apple iPod dancing silhouette commercials as well as blockbuster films and cult classics like You Got Served, the Step Up series, and the online sensation The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers (LXD). Today SEC members continue to compete and judge high-level bboy competitions around the world and share their knowledge and expertise with students across six continents.
Although best known for their contributions to breaking (b-boying), SEC members actively participate in multiple disciplines of Hip Hop culture – including djing, graffiti, beatboxing and mcing – and are committed to the unity, progression, and elevation of Hip-Hop in all its manifestations.
Style Elements believe Hip-Hop is a positive, universal force and is dedicated to promoting creativity, originality. The crew advocates self knowledge, consciousness, innovation, empowerment, expression and representing cultural origins through the harnessing of individual talents.
