What's up everybody, my name is Kid Glyde. Kid Glydeeeee. I'm the leader of the Dynamic Rockers. Third generation, we started in '79. My father passed down the torch to me and he said, "Here, lead the crew." And I've been doing that ever since. Pretty famous b-boy. I travel around the world, I organize events. I judge, I compete. To this very day, I still compete. That's right, I'll go after ya. You learn these moves from me, I'm gonna come after you. Straight up. I'm not scared of nobody. I come from Queens, and I've been dancing for 15 years. What? 15 years! So I think I'm pretty credible to teach you. I love this dance, I respect it, and I wanna teach everybody the real deal about breaking. Whether it be on TV, through YouTube, through my house, knocking on your house and saying "What's up, this is what breaking is." I'm there. Right now, I'm about to show you all the moves, well not all the moves, but most of the moves that are the basics of the dance. Footwork, power moves, freezes, and top rock. I'm gonna say this a lot: repetition is key. All the boxers, they keep throwing their jab over and over and over again. You know why? Because they wanna master it. So all these moves that you're about to learn right now, you need to master them. You need to do them over and over again. Some of the moves you're going to get right away. But I guarantee you this, most of the moves you're not. Trust me, I know. I've been dancing 15 years. And a lot of these moves have discouraged me because they're hard and they're difficult. It's called breaking. It's not easy. But if you're determined, you will make it happen. I learned that through my experience. So I'm trying to save you the discouragement. Don't let it get to you. Make it happen. Be positive. Be strong. You can do it. You can do whatever you want if you set your mind to it. All right? Let's do this.
