How to Do a UFO in Break Dancing

Learn how to do a UFO in break dancing from Kid Glyde of The Dynamic Rockers in this Howcast dance video.


I hope you guys are ready for this move, because this move is advanced. Alright, it's called the UFO. Why is it called the UFO? Because it's out of this world. Only a select few can do this. Believe me. And I'm one of them.

But, you're here with me today and I'm going to help you guys achieve this difficult move. It's a little difficult, but I'm going to give you some pointers on how to do it. And you have to keep doing it. Seriously. You have to keep doing it. It took me a while, but the day I got it, I went from doing one, to doing like twenty. I'm telling you. So listen up, I know what I'm saying. Alright, so check it out. You have to get this strong. This whole thing right here, really strong for it.

So the first thing we're going to do, we're going to get down low. We're going to get on our knees, and we're going to hold ourselves with our palms. So here we go. This is just a little workout to get the strength to building this up. Here, you're going to try to lift, and just do your best to hold yourself. Here, you're going to hold yourself as much as you can. It's pretty difficult, but you also want to work on the stretch.

For this, basically you want to create a 90 degree angle with your knees. You're going to hold that like that. Stretch like that and try to get your hips down to the ground. Keep your chest up. It's a good stretch for this, trust me. Then your left hand is going to touch your right knee. It's another stretch for the other side.

Now, the movement to it, this is the hard part. From my experience, it's about momentum. So once you get the gist of it, it's like a momentum. That's how I do it. So here, we're going through here. Centered. Your knees are here, you're centered, and you're going to go around, like that, with your hand. You're going to go around your hand. As soon as you go around, you're placing your other hand down. So as soon as I go around, boom, I place it down. But see the position I put myself in? I put myself in that position right away. Once you catch yourself, with the momentum, you'll be able to carry yourself around. Let's try it. Try it with me. So check it out.

One, go around, boom. So that's the first one. It's important your hands are close to each other. There is a lot of stuff to do for this move, I know. Trust me. So you're going to play it over and over again. Your hands have to be like this, once you go to your left, go to your right. Left. Right. Left. Right.

And that's a UFO.
