When you see people standing in a cricle, clapping, shouting and moving their bodies, while one person is in the middle, dancing and showing their best moves… that is what you call a cypher!
Dancers’ share their skills with others and feed off the crowd’s energy when in the cypher. But you cannot only dance in a circle: freestyle rap cyphers are also very common, it works the same way, just with words instead of moves of course… Maybe you can even get the chance to catch the magic of a cypher in Capoeira or African dances! And as you already know, we rule the cypher!
