History and description
The group was initially formed in the Bronx, New York City in 1977 by b-boys Jimmy D and JoJo. The Manhattan branch was created by Crazy Legs and B-Boy Fresh. The New York Times called the Rock Steady Crew "the foremost breakdancing group in the world today."[this quote needs a citation]
A related group exists in Japan. Rock Steady Crew Japan is led by a dancer named Crazy-A, who was one of the original Japanese breakers. His group of dancers was originally known as the Tokyo B-Boys. Now, Crazy-A leaves the younger members of Rock Steady Crew Japan to do the dancing. Many of the new members of Rock Steady Crew Japan come from Soka Daigaku, a University which has a breakdancing team called D-Crew.
