The Bay Area dances a little different. More than music, Hyphy is described as a movement for a reason: it involved one’s mind, body and soul. Episode 3: Taking Up Room on the Floor explores the dance culture of the bay area that helped visualize the Hyphy Movement. Born from the 1960s and 1970s funk scene in Oakland, the free-flowing and hard-hitting dance style known as Boogaloo has evolved into styles like pop and locking and T.U.R.F. dancing, which is still popular in the Bay Area to this day. With breaking (aka break dancing) entering the Olympics in 2024 and events like Red Bull Dance Your Style, T.U.R.F. dancing has kept a visual element of the Hyphy Movement-era alive. Expect to hear from rapper Too $hort, graffiti artist and rapper Dregs One, Jeriel Bey; who coined the acronym and meaning for T.U.R.F. dancing, Ice Cold 3000 of the Turfeinz crew, Johnny5; founder of TURFInc, Thizz Nation photographer D-Ray, organizers from the community space Youth Uprising and more.
