Hip-hop hit Ackerman's Grand Ballroom with high energy recently, as eight of the West Coast's best break-dancing teams, or "crews," came to campus to dance it out in BreakLA 2012, a cash-prize competition co-programmed by the UCLA Street Dance Collective. Besides the eight b-boy crews—that's a member of the Bang Uh Rang team competing in the photo above—groups ACA Hip Hop, NSU Modern, VSU Modern and Samahang Modern performed. In the end, the Killafornia and Samahang Modern crews were the winners.
