Tommy the Clown and the Hip Hop Krumpers (USA)

Blending hip hop dancing and traditional party clowning – including magic, comedy, face painting and balloon sculpting - Tommy the Clown has created a new style of urban dance that is taking over inner city neighbourhoods in LA.

Starting initially as a party performance, Tommy’s style of urban clowning has inspired the creation of hip hop Clown dance groups across LA. When not performing for children, the hip hop Clowns Krump dance – a very athletic, more adult, pumped-up version of hip hop Clown dancing.

Krump dancing was featured on Channel Four’s Clowns in the Hood documentary by David LaChapelle.
