"B-boying or breaking, often called "breakdancing", is a style of street dance that originated as a part of hip hop culture among African American and Latino youths in New York City during the early 1970s."
Let me preface this post by saying that I am in no way a dancer per say. I like to bounce around, river dance maybe, do the running man every now and again or even a impromptu tap dance, so when I saw a class for Breakdancing being offered, I had no other choice but to jump on it or should I say "break" on it. For some reason I've secretly wanted to learn how to pop and lock...Yep the dance secret is now out.
The class is tonight and I’ve managed to wrangle two of my other friends to join me, this should make for a very interesting evening, a story that I can share with my kiddies one day but family and friends will have to suffice at the moment. Hmmm all I need is some “breaking gear” and to practice my beatboxing skills. Let’s hope that I can beatbox and breakdance at the same time.
Since a few of my friends know that I’m going to this course and have asked for a video, I may upload one post class. We shall see. If nothing else, this is going to be an amazing, fun-filled night.
Maybe I can watch the below clip before class and at least learn how to Pop and Lock, Turbo style, ha ha
