Mechanical Mondays

Mechanical Mondays

Dancer maddchadd transforms himself into a robot with a degree of precision rarely seen, introducing just the right amount of stutter and mechanical movement in not only his torso, arms, and hands, but every little facial expression. Do you even blink, bro?

Just Dance: Able

Choreographer Jacob Jonas teamed up with ILL-Abilities, a breakdancing crew who proves that physical challenges won’t stand in the way of those with a strong will and dedication to their craft. A beautifully shot and inspiring short film from NOWNESS.

Illusion of Choice 2

(PG-13: Lyrics) Marquese Scott, BluPrint, iGlide, and AndreAndroiidRucker follow up their incredible dance video from 2012 with another sick set of robotic and slow-motion maneuvers. We want to see these guys in a dance-off with World Order.

Breakdancing Record Attempts

Breakdancing Record Attempts

Japanese breakdancer Ashitaka recently attempted to break two World Records in his chosen field – the most consecutive one-handed jumps, and the most elbow hops. Our palms and joints hurt just watching him do this. Watch now and see if he achieved his goals.

BBIC 2016 Contestants Reel

The contestants of the 2016 Bucheon Bboy International Championships warm up at various parts of Bucheon, South Korea to the tune of Imagin8’s High Seas & Childish Dreams. The real star here is YAKfilms’ videography. They could probably make a stylish video about snails.

Nonstop: Air Chair

Nonstop: Air Chair

Dancer Marquese “Nonstop” Scott never ceases to amaze us with his smooth-as-butter moves. This time out, he uses his skills to seemingly defy gravity and create furniture out of thin air. The track is Stwo’s Her (Majid Jordan Edit).

First Wave

First Wave

In 4/26/86, breakdancing enthusiasts from all over the USSR attended a dance festival in Vinni, Estonia. Break Dance 80s tracked down 50 of the event’s participants – now in their late 40s to 50s – and had them show off their moves for old time’s sake.

Gravity

Gravity

The always incredible Poppin John teamed up with dancer Solto to turn in this mindbending (and bodybending) street performance set to Revolvr & Genisis and Splitbreed’s track Unstoppable. The gimmick at the end is worth the price of admission.

Robot on an Airboard

Robot on an Airboard

Dancer Madd Chadd appears to be more robot than human as he pops, locks and breaks it down into controlled mechanical movements all while he maintains his balance on a wheeled Airboard. The track is So by Dabow.

B-Boy Powermoves Compilation

B-Boy Powermoves Compilation

One-legged Break Dancer

One-legged Break Dancer

Here’s your no excuses video for the day. YouTuber Claire Blogga shares this clip of a one-legged bboy. Not only does he pull off the same stunts that able-bodied dancers can do, he also incorporates his crutches into his moves.

King of Pop x Kings of Popping

Breakdancer Strength Training

Breakdancer Strength Training

Australian breakdancer Simon Ata demonstrates some of the exercises he does to keep in shape for his dance routines, with precision control over muscles we didn’t even knew existed. Seriously, this is some next level Cirque du Soleil sh*t.

Breakdance Gone Crazy

An amazing dance routine by the B-boys of the Morning of Owl crew as they bring down the house at Korea’s R16 breakdance competition with some moves we’ve never seen before. Watch the full battle here.

Headspin on a Can

Headspin on a Can

B-girl Spinderella returns with another painful looking headspin, this time planting her head on the top of a metal soup can and rotating. Perhaps her skull is has a layer of protective rubber built in. Swag!

6-Year-Old B-Girl

6-Year-Old B-Girl

While the young breakdancer at the start of this clip isn’t half bad, the appropriately monikered 6-year-old Terra upstages his every move, dealing an epic deathblow to her competition. More here and here.

World’s First Breakdancer

NextLevel Squad: Bonebreaking

World’s Best Bboys 2011

World’s Best Bboys 2011

An exhilarating montage of some of the year’s best male breakdancers and their acrobatic moves. That shoulder drop maneuver looks hella painful. The song is Invaders Must Die by The Prodigy.

Epic Headspin

Epic Headspin

An 11-year-old girl going by the name Spinderella (no not that one) performs a headspin for an unreal 13 minutes, 53.34 seconds. She even has time to play with her iPad and some light reading.

Break ton Neck

While you already have to be pretty flexible to breakdance, Arthur Cadre takes it to a whole ‘nother level combining his bendy Yoga skills with B-Boy moves in this clip by Alex Yde. Song here.

B-Boy Photo Experimentation

B-Boy Photo Experimentation

It doesn’t matter that these breakdancers are speaking Portuguese. The incredible slow-mo, multi- and long-exposure images require no translation (and captions just get in the way.)

The Notorious IBE 2011
