How to Join a B-Boy Crew

Learn how to join a b-boy crew 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.

I believe a lot of people want to join their favorite crew, and it's hard to do that because, one: Crews are usually your family. I'm sure once they get good, everybody wants to be a part of that crew. Like, if that crew means a lot to them, then they wouldn't just accept anybody. So, it'll be hard. I mean, you can prove to a crew that you can be down with them, but it's gonna be a lot of hard work. Just like the time it took to get all those moves, it's gonna take maybe longer or the same amount of time to get into a crew. Unless, you start your own crew.

Starting your own crew, you can do that by going to practice sessions or finding other B-Boys and getting to know B-Boys. And if you guys have a certain bond or a certain vibe with each other, and you guys, you know, hang out a lot or whatever it is you guys like to do, then I'm sure you guys can create your own crew. You know? And, whatever you expect from breaking, you should be able to expect from your crew. You know, if your crew wants to become a big crew, then you have to be around those kind-of people.

You have to be around people that want to be big. If you want to be around people that just want to dance, then find people that just want to dance. And that, you know what I'm saying, you could be a part of that crew. So, one: you could start your own crew. Or two; become a member of another crew which, will take time. So, those are your two options.
