How to Do a Baby Swipe aka 2-Step B-Boy Dance Move

Learn the b-boy dance move known as a baby swipe aka 2-step 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.

So now we're going to try the two step, also known as baby swipes. This is more difficult then other steps I've showed you. You know there's only two steps but this move is it puts together what the helicopter is and the fourth step of the six-step. So you're going to skip step two and three like that. So, like just the same thing as the helicopter, lean forward and here your kind of like going to hold yourself, so as soon as you lean forward you're going to hold yourself like that. But its really quick. So it's going to be like that and a turn. Alright, so I was just doing it slow. So fast is going to be like one, two. So at the same time when you put your hands down your legs are going to kick out like that, so watch very closely. One and you're going to kick and you're going to land at I guess fifth step, so tap and kick. So the only reason they call this a two-step is when you land, you go one two. Alright so watch, okay. So real quick you're going to do the helicopter, hold it really quick, kick out. One, two and you do it again. One, two okay, lets do it with the music. This move is quick so please do not get discouraged. Repetition is key. Alright, so what we're going to do, we're going to kick our right leg around like a sweeping motion. Lean forward, hold yourself, kick out, one, two. Again, slow, fast one two. Now do it fast. Alright, to the music. Two-step.
