How to Freestyle Your B-Boy Dance Moves

Learn how to freestyle your b-boy dance moves 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.

All right, so now check it out! You’re gonna take all these moves that you’ve been learning. Right?
All of these moves, which are a lot! [Chuckles] And now you are going to freestyle them. You know. It’s not that easy, but basically, the way I look at it. It’s like, all right. If I wanna go out and I wanna do let’s say swipe into a windmill, and if I want to do a freeze.

You know I have all that planned out. Right? But in between, I do the freestyling depending on what kind of music it is. If I know that some, I’ll be like, "Oh, I know that song!" There’s a certain part, which I can like do a freeze to, or do a certain move to. You know, that makes it go with the song. Where everybody is like, "Oh, that was creative!" You know you want to be creative.

So, the best way to show you is if I have some music. All right?
So, after this song played. So, here we go. So, so I’m listening. Right? [rhythmic humming and dancing]. You hear that. Huh? Dum-dum bap, dum-dum bap. [Dancing]
OK. So, I’m going to do a swipe, but I’m just gonna freestyle. And then later on, I’m gonna do a windmill. But it’s all gonna be freestyle. Check it out! [Dancing]
You know what I’m saying.
All that in between was freestyling. ‘Cause that’s how I felt at that certain time when the song was playing. That’s how you do it.
