Old Skool Hip Hop 80s Tribute Breakdancing Contest 2012

Being a Breaker/Popper in Cali during the 80's makes me feel good seeing the B-Boy spirit still alive today and that they seem very dedicated as well as throwing out some new styles out there. Yes, it's not quite like back in 85, but it's a tribute, music is universal, has no color, it's gravity attracts us all.

When breakdancing came to the West coast in the early 80's I got into it and practiced up to 6 hrs a day. I had a ton of trophies/awards. I was one of the best and was in numerous clubs. My crew (Whiteline Breakers) beat the L.A breakers at Knotts Berry Farm in 1984. We were doing wiz-rocks and flares when no one else was.However, these guys would make us look ridiculous! The transitions from flares to glides to head/elbow spins is UNBELEIVABLE! These guys are on a different level. Even their uprocking is technical. Crazy how things progress...

This is definitely another level , but it starts to look more like gymnastics then break dancing. not hatin but what makes breakin is when you can do phenomenal moves but keep it in rhythm to whatever track you are playing. the moves back in the day were simpler because staying in rhythm is what made your shit right. It's good to see this generation take breakin this serious but they are sacrificing some rhythm and some of Al Nafyish.

This generation can do the same moves.............with their fingers on an iPhone that is!

WAT TYPE OF DEODORANT DO THESE GUYS USE TO STAY FRESH

I agree with Kev s. I was also involved when break dancing was just getting started. Rock Steady Crew ruled. I'm old (er) now. I kicked ass back in the day but these guys are beyond ANYTHING we even thought about doing. They are so athletic, gymnastic, and creative. Far above what we did which was innovative at the time. Props to them all and keep rocking. In my opinion Breakdancing should be an Olympic sport.With due respect to gymnasts they have NOTHING on these guys : )

There was no hip hop in the 80s. Breakdancing, Bopping (body waves, pop locking, robot) and MJ ruled the decade. And of course there was professional dancing like classical ballet with the likes of Baryshnikov, Jazz dancing like Flashdance and contemporary.

Theres a lot of jealous old skool folk criticising these lads. I dont know why because i think they are awesome. I think its with anything. Folks get bored of seeing the same shit. These guys evolved and took breakdancing to another level. Keep it up lads.

Johnboy
WOW THEY BROUGHT IT TO A WHOLE DIFFERENT LEVEL, GOD BLESS THE PUERTO RICANS AND BLACKS FOR THIS. IT SHOULD REPLACE HATE AND VIOLENCE FOR EVER, MAYBE SOME WHITE FOLKS SHOULD LEARN FROM THIS AND UTILIZE IT. BLESS THE GOOD AND CAST OUT THE EVIL.
Juddie Hinton
Break dancers are the original gymnast. This should have been an Olympic sport. I have never seen a practiced gymnast make any body twisting, jumping, elevated, levitating moves like this. The only reason why it's not an Olympic sport is because the gymnast coaches can't get paid. And how do you coach a person with moves like this they can't.😄😄😄😄
Julius Quinn
Wow impressive im in your 4 and a boy in my class named jaxon is rlly good at beat boxing and breakdancing once we did a dance competition in the class and he apsaloutly smashed it

It's crazy that we used to break as much as we could back in high school (early-mid 2000s) and all that is now a nostalgic memory from over a decade ago.
Tony Zeno
The advancement of Breakdancing is amazing, Back in my day, if you could windmill you were the s#%t.. and if you could headspin you were a GOD!!!... These dudes are lightyears beyond
Who Am I, Who Ar You
_I'm a 51 year old Bronx-Boy myself, rockin' when I was about 16-18 years old - go figure that. When I started, it was just invented and now to see in this video - pleases me so much, that this shit got up in it's level, so high, I can only say to you B-Boys; Well done!_ *RESPECT!*
Wilhelm Hesse
Amazing each and everyone of these guys is a black belt in break dancing!
