B-Boying Footwork Basics

Learn b-boying footwork basics in this Howcast breakdancing tutorial with choreographer Victor "Kid Glyde" Alicea.

Whassup, everybody. My name is Kid Glyde. I’m the leader of the Dynamic Rockers, pretty famous B-Boy. I travel around the world, I organize events. I’ve been dancing for 15 years. So I think I’m pretty credible to teach you. Be positive, be strong, let’s do it.

Now we got footwork basics. If you know me, this is all I’d love to do. Footwork, alright? After top rock, you go into footwork. After dancing on top, you hit the floor. Anything that involves your feet kicking around and your hands on the floor is a footwork basic move. Alright? Boom.

The key things to footwork is moving around fast with some momentum so that you’re not stuck in once place, alright? And you want to sit up. You want to pretend like you have, you’re like sitting on a chair, alright? You don’t want to be with your butt down like this because then it looks like you have no form.

The perfect form for footwork is to have your butt up, you know, like you’re sitting on a chair and also to use your hips, alright, and you’re legs are just whipping around. Alright, so as far as, you can watch, I’m moving my hips and footwork.

And that’s how you rock some footwork.
