    Learning 2 Break Dance

    Discussion started by metallix - Feb 15, 2004

    If you can breakdance, how did you learn? How does one go about learning on a low budget? I don't have $ to afford private lessons.
    Google has text descriptions of moves. I considered video, but how usefull is this in actual learning? Any suggestions ?

    find a good forum and ask questions
    learn basic moves from move descriptions/video clips
    talk to people online
    meet people in your area who do it
    practice with them, ask them for tips/help

    Breaking, like Emceeing, and graffiti takes no money to learn. It just takes desire and initiative. Just dance........dance alot, and then dance so more. It would help to maybe find some heads to give you advice, but learning on your own could help you to develop a unique style. Search the web, I'm sure there is a bunch of websites on breaking.
    Oh and you are gonna have to think about getting in top physical shape cause some moves arent for the weak.

    before you want to learn how to be a b-boy, stretch your muscles and make your body flexible a little.

    I had a video some 5 years ago with all the
    basic moves. If I could find that shit I'd sell it
    to you for like $5 but that shit disappeared...

    Care to learn how to frontside slide or boneless?
