Learning 2 Break Dance

Recommended Posts

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 ?

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.

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?

a guy i used to live with wanted to get into breaking but didn't have the balance or discipline to pull it off. he started doing capoeira(sp?) to build strength and improve rhythm. now he's really good at both.

 

too bad he's a dick.

to me, it makes sense that not all people that break are bboys.

a lot of people that want to be

a bboy or bgirl dont have the

discipline or whatever to break

for that long.

 

whats wrong with calling it breaking?

probably the same thing that's wrong with people referring to going out painting as "graffing" or being a "graffer." it irritates the hell out of most people who associate themselves with that scene and spent a little memory figuring out what all the terms meant and how to use them correctly. it pisses me off when people say they're "graffers"...

 

but i also have a decent story about a friend of mine trying to explain what a "throw-up" was to me while we were both really high.

 

whatever. i can't even pogo right...

hard at all to get it down and learn real easy . half of breakdancing came

from capoeira in the first place , wonk saggin
