Who Are the Top B-Boys?

Learn who the top b-boys are in this Howcast breakdancing video 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.

It’s hard to be on top. There is different eras, there’s different crews, different people that have inspired many. Back in the day, the top crews in New York were Rock Steady, Dynamic Rockers, and New York City Breakers. Those were the top three crews that influenced the world. And later on of course, they had people that stood out in those crews like, Kid Freeze, Wavy Legs, my father Glyde, Crazy Legs Ken Swift, Kuriaki, Buck 4, Chino. There are so many people back then that made it happen. Icy ice, who was Little Glyde. Later on different generations, like when the dance travelled to the West Coast, you had the L.A. breakthroughs making a lot of noise and pushing the limits as far as power moves. They were taking it to the next level. New York was more about traditions, while the West Coast was more about pushing their limits and doing the moves. Once it hit Europe, you had people like Storm and Crazy who just annihilated everybody. Then when it travelled to Korea, oh man, talk about pushing limits, these guys were killing it. These guys were taller than me. They were flying, and they were just doing all these crazy moves. Like Gamblers, you had Hong 10 who is considered one of the best now. He’s won that big competition BC1. We have Lilou, we have Moreys from the U.S. killing stuff. These guys are killing it around the world, wherever they go. We have Lil G from Venezuela, South America, Neguin who just won Red Bull BC1 and other competitions. He’s my homie right there. So all these names, they are very influential, and this could be you. You could be that person that influences all these B-Boys.
