Downrock

A breakdancer performing downrock.

Downrock is an element of breakdance that includes all footwork performed on the floor. Downrock is normally performed with the hands and feet on the floor, as opposed to toprock. In downrock, the breakdancer displays his or her proficiency with foot speed and control by performing footwork combinations. The foundational move of downrock is the 6-step, and combinations often transition from it into more athletic moves known as power moves.[1]
