When most people think of krump they may think of urban areas of Los Angeles like Watts, Compton, Inglewood and others where DC sessions, 818 sessions, overhype, and many more session spots are. Something you may not know is there is a place a little north of Los Angeles called the Antelope Valley, in which Krump has gathered since its early stages and currently.
In the Antelope Valley community (Los Angeles County) it's very different in comparison to the city of Los Angeles; here in the AV it's hotter or colder depending on the season. Most people move here to create a better life for their families due to gentrification. In exchange the youth that live within the community have difficulty in finding employment, due to the lack of businesses in the area and older citizens also having a similar need of employment to provide for their families. This leads to high a possibility of incarceration, because trouble finds you.
With this Krump dance movement we are able to express ourselves whether it's about our day, who you want to be, or we tell the stories that need to be seen. For example when we session and are in our zone, we may be in public like at a park people stop what they are doing to watch us from the basketball courts, softball fields, or just walking around the park. People drop what their doing to watch us tell our stories. We Krump dancers the same people that perform in the street or on stage, bring joy and entertainment to others have been denied to perform at times, because disturbing the peace. In which we are not causing trouble or harm, instead we're creating something to do to keep out of trouble. Hopefully now that Krump has taken the world by storm and most people are at least aware of Krump we will begin to accept the movement as a whole.
We have been working with the non profit Krump Society to help with the communities growth and access to resources. As they have hosted many local Krump events, sessions, workshops, and attended local business lunch ins and more.
