.54-1.01 in this video features steppin movements that have been popularized by historically African American fraternity and sorority Greek letter organizations. That part of steppin is based on the 19th century and probably earlier African American percussive art called "pattin juba". The African American/Caribbean originated dance styles of b-boying, locking, and popping are also featured in this video.
Isaiah Morgan is the name of the lead boy who is wearing green. The names of other dancers are given in some of the comments in the video's discussion thread.
