Krump is an acronym, which stands for Kingdom Radically Uplifted Mighty Praise. All Krump founders are people of faith. In spirit, this dance is energetic and rather sharp. Besides, Krump is very diverse, as different people can use very different styles. The main thing is that Krump should match the character of the dancer and his or her attitude.
Krump is a kind of alternative to street violence, which was very common in the US at the end of the 20th century. Krump originated in the southern neighborhoods of Los Angeles in the early 1990s. It is a street-style dance that sprang from the dark gaps of the ghetto to make people around the globe move.
Dancers are united in groups known as “families”. Each of the families is formed around the main dancer, Big Homie, who acts as a dance instructor and as a spiritual teacher for others.
