Watch the Truly CA film: Stand by filmmaker Melanie D'Andrea. (Running Time: 21:05)

A dance style from South Los Angeles, "krump" has taken street dance to a new level by adding percussive movements and providing a safe and cathartic way for at-risk youth to express their emotions. Stand follows a krump group called Demolition Crew, which has become a nexus for its community, offering an alternative to gangs and a healthy outlet for aggression. Krucial the Liberator, one of the crew's leaders, says, "Krump was created to let out those harsher emotions."

This film is part of the episode Truly CA Shorts: State of Discovery, which includes these films:
