One of New York City's original breakdancing crews, the Dynamic Rockers were founded circa 1977-1978 and quickly became one of the top crews on the scene. Featuring Queens native Kid Freeze, Spinner, Victor, George, and others, the Dynamic Rockers enjoyed their heyday during the early '80s, when their chief rivals were the legendary Rocksteady Crew; their battles became some of the most renowned in early hip-hop history. They were also among the most publicized; a 1981 battle at the Lincoln Center was so intense that it resulted in a stage collapse. The two crews also appeared in the groundbreaking PBS hip-hop documentary Style Wars; their battle sequence at a roller-skating rink helped spread breakdancing to the West Coast and beyond.
