Tommy Trojan and unsuspecting University of Southern California students got a taste of "krumping" Tuesday afternoon. A group of street dancers organized a flash mob by the statue on the eve of show "The Underground."

The free show, which takes place on Wednesday night in USC's Bovard Auditorium, is part of krump's 10th anniversary celebration. Krump is a freestyle hip-hop street dance created by the youth in South Los Angeles. It is a free, expressive dance form, which is even seen as a way to release frustration.
