This is an introduction to krump dancing. Are you guys ready? 'Cause I know I am, here we go.

Oh man, the difference between krumping and clowing--um, clown dancers paint their face, krump dancers don't. The dress style is different, the style of dance is different. They have more of a happier style, 'cause it's called clown dancing so they act like clowns. Krump dancers have more of a warrior style so you gonna see two different elements of dance. You can split it right down the middle, it's fine, it's fine, it just like "schwoo."

Clown dancing: Fun, enjoyable, character.

Krump dancing: Agressive, powerful, character.

So fun -- agressive. Fun -- agressive. Separation.
