Born in the mid-noughties, “litefeet” is a descendant of breaking, or b-boying, the dance culture that accompanied the early days of hip-hop in the Bronx in the 1970s. But where b-boys tended to keep to the streets, litefeet crews have taken their moves aboard New York’s subway trains – and, subsequently, run into the policing philosophy that has transformed the city over the past 15 to 20 years. “They’re trying to end something that’s beautiful, that’s positive,” laments dancer Goofy, founder of the respected W.A.F.F.L.E litefeet crew. “They’re trying to end an art.”
