Even though it was not a b-boy movie, a short scene which featured b-boying and popping on a street had a great impact and was enough to inspire people to start b-boying all over the world. There were other movies to, like ‘Wild Style’ and ‘Beat Street,’ but these movies weren’t as commercial as ‘Flashdance’.
