How to learn b boying dance steps

How To Bboy: The Complete Beginner Guide | by BreakDance Decoded

You are confused right?

You watched a few videos of those athletic guys busting out moves after moves on YouTube — and you’re all fired up now.

You really, really want to pick up this dance known as bboying. You want to learn how to bboy.

The problem?

You don’t even know where to start.

A quick search on YouTube gave you hundreds of tutorials and playlists.

But you’re a complete beginner.

Where should you begin? What should you start with? What do you need to prepare before you begin learning?

Are you even strong enough?

Questions, questions, questions.

You see…

I have received questions like these countless of times. And despite being asked so many times, there was no definitive resource I could point someone to to kickstart their bboy journey.

Until now.

I’ve put together a complete beginner’s guide (broken down into multiple sections) that will guide you EXACTLY on how to start.

It is what I call the “Ultimate List of Bboying Tutorials”. It contains every resource or tutorial that I think is good enough to teach you the basics of breaking.

After going through all these tutorials, you can pat your back, start practicing, start creating and becoming good.

Let’s begin, shall we?

Before we even begin on what to learn in bboying, you need to be part of the culture.

Do you know what is the easiest way to be part of a culture?

Learning the terms and vocabulary.

Being able to identify yourself as a bboy, and use the correct language at the right time welcomes you to the family of hip hop. After going through the resources below, you’ll be able to hi-5 any bboy and communicate with them in bboy lingo.

What’s next after you’ve learnt the language of the dance? You have to immerse yourself into the culture.

But the knowledge that is deep inside your head.

Only by understanding the culture and attaining the knowledge of hip hop will make you a true bboy.

History of Breakdance


You’re already impatient, aren’t you?

3 chapters in and I haven’t even touched on a single move.


That’s because the fundamentals of breaking isn’t the moves.

The fundamentals of bboying is the music. And that’s true for any dance.

Without music, there can be no dance. No physical expression. No artistry.

To learn the dance, you need to learn the music. Learn what is old, what is classic and what is new and modern.

And enjoy your time grooving and jiving to it.

Before you can get into your footwork, you have to do what we call a transition.

A transition is some move or movement you do to change from levels to levels (e.g from toprock to footwork).

A get down (also known as a go down or a drop) is a method of transiting from your top rocks to your footwork.

Here are a few examples of the commonly used get downs you must know to change from the top level to the footwork level.

The footwork is mainly what differentiates us from other dances and sports.

Let’s be honest.

We are quite possibly the only dance in the world to have developed such sophisticated movements at this level.

The footwork is what it describes — doing moves using your legs and arms and creating patterns of movements that are unique to yourself and breaking.

Watch to see what I mean here:

What is a freeze? A freeze is what it implies — you act like you are frozen.

It serves like a punctuation in your dance. Imagine the various moves and movements like the words in a sentence and the freeze a full stop.

That’s how a freeze is.

Sharp, and locked tight to (usually) signify the end of something.

This is the part you’re probably most excited about.

It is the most physically challenging — and rewarding part of the dance. Many of the moves here require you to practice harder than you thought you ever would, as well as get the particular technique right.

It is not surprising to see people take a few months to learn any one of these moves.

But do not be disheartened — because the rewards will be well worth it.

Remember I mentioned that transitions are ways for you to get from one level to the other? They are also ways to get from one move to another.

In fact, you can count them as moves on their own.

And here are some common transitions used by bboys (some bordering on difficult) to get from moves to moves.

How to Coin Drop

You’ve finally reached the last chapter of the complete beginner guide to bboying.

By now, you should have a clear idea of what the fundamentals of bboying are — and where you should start.

And if you’ve been diligent, you would have already been practicing the moves listed above.

Once you get your fundamentals down pat, you are ready to develop it a step further — and create your own moves.

You do this by employing creativity.

Employing what we call concepts or mental models that you can apply to change up your dance and to switch up your moves.

And where can you get these concepts?

You can either 1) think of it yourself or 2) use concepts that have already been used by other bboys.

And here, you can choose from a variety of videos where some bboys have willingly shared their most ingenious concepts with you.

History of Breakdancing:

Breakdancing was founded by the black community and Puerto Rican kids in the 1970s. And it really became popular after James brown’s single “Get On The Good Foot” where his busted out his high energy footwork dancing. After that, the kids in New york started to copy his moves and eventually it evolved to be called b-boy or break dancing. At that time most of the style was ground footwork combinations without any of the fancy stuff you see today like windmills or back spins that are popular today. There were also breakdancing battles between gangs or clicks.

Another dance called “uprock” influenced the b-boy dancers. In this dance style, the dancers mimic fighting moves into rhythmic dance moves that opponents would use to ‘battle’ against one another.

The music is not restricted to Hip Hop anymore. These days dancers choose Techno, Jazz, electronic, pop and an other types of music that suites their style.

  1. In other words, first a new musical direction appears, and then movements are invented. Therefore, it is a little illiterate to talk, for example, about hip-hop as a dance style. Hip-hop is a whole culture. And in our case, rather, it is a dance to hip-hop music, a certain style.

    But in order not to overload our visitors with unnecessary details, we will consider dances of different styles. So...

    You can learn to dance in our studio:

    One of the components of hip-hop culture is breakdance (breakdance), which laid the foundation for many dance styles, which later joined and supplemented hip-hop culture, its styles and trends. Every year break dance becomes more and more popular and fashionable, breakers appear in commercial projects (TV shows, advertisements, clips, etc.), breaking has become part of the show business. Now breakdance is widely used by such American pop stars as Madonna, Michael Jackson, and others.

    A few words about history.

    Breaking, in other words b-boying, is very different from other types of dance. One could even say that this is a progressive development of previous forms of dance: In New York in the 50s and 60s. there was a large influx of immigrants. Everyone brought some part of their own into the dance, like, for example, the Africans, who brought rhythm into the dance. The influence of African dance on breaking is obvious, not only because of the "circle dance". Also, the expression b-boing (b-boing) can be borrowed from the African word Boioing, which means "Hop (dancing), jump (jump)".

    Belly Dance, Belly Dancing or Bellydancing is a Western name for a variety of Middle Eastern dances involving isolated body movements. The exact origin of the term is unknown, but may have come from a misunderstanding of the word "Baladi" or the phrase "Danse du Ventre."

    Belly dancing is becoming popular all over the world, excluding the Middle East. Strict adherence to Islam forbids a woman to be an artist, sing or dance.

    Although the Egyptians believe that the belly dance originates from the pharaohs, in fact it was brought from India in the 10th century by the gypsies and from there spread throughout the world. Western travelers were fascinated by the dances they saw in Egypt and brought the news to Europe.

    Although Middle Eastern dance must be quite ancient, there is no documented evidence for the myth that modern bellydance bears any significant resemblance to the ancient dance. Numerous other myths arose among the cultural influences that have shaped modern bellydance. These myths have led to different dance styles and to the use of accessories such as snakes and swords, the use of which in dance has no roots in Middle Eastern female dance.
    Classes in a group usually begin with a kind of warm-up, which carries a significant athletic moment. This is warming up the arms and the whole body, stretching the spine, developing the abdominals and legs. Languidly smooth movements gently and unobtrusively straighten the spine, putting in place the displaced vertebrae and intervertebral cartilages. The music that accompanies this stage is calm, the rhythm appears a little later, in the second part of the lesson.

    Strengthened hip work not only trains the flat muscles of the abdomen, but also massages the pelvic organs.

    Belly dancing strengthens the abdominals without inadvertently tearing or pinching something inside. In addition, due to exercises on the abdominal muscles, the sexual capabilities of the lady increase, which has a beneficial effect on ... mutual understanding of partners :).

    The main movements of the Arabic dance are both rotation, and those seductive sharp "blows" with the hip, and the "rattle", from which the whole body of the dancer walks seductively - in a word, everything that remains in the memory of those who have ever seen the dance belly.

    There is a pas in belly dance performed on the floor, in which the dancer, continuously "dancing with her belly", also gradually lies back on her own heels, and then also slowly - as slowly as possible! - goes up. One can imagine the load on the abdominal press when learning and performing such movements. No aerobics can compare with this, especially since this step, among other things, significantly improves gait: after all, such an exercise turns the hips, stretches the tendons in the groin and, as if automatically, without special training, you start walking "from the hip" like a fashion model.

    A belly dance cannot be considered correctly performed if the dancer's head is also shaking while moving her hips. This means that during rehearsals-trainings in the dance class, posture improves.

    So exercise for HEALTH!

    Do you remember episodes from films when blacks dance around a huge fire to the sound of homemade drums, rhythmic clapping of hands and stamping of feet, creating a complex rhythmic pattern, performing a prayer dance to the gods of fire. And every muscle, head, arms, legs obey the general character of the dance, every cell breathes freedom and the body from top to toe is filled with music ... music ... music ...

    The style of jazz originates from the ritual dances of African peoples, and gradually the expression and improvisation of African rhythms mixed with elements of jazz music and American jazz dance was formed. Jazz dance, as an American urban social dance, is inextricably linked with jazz music and has evolved along with it, incorporating elements from a wide variety of ethnic and European dances. At a time when the rise of jazz music coincided with the establishment of action dance in the form of ballet and modern on the American stage, jazz dance developed as an equally serious type of stage dance, becoming the basis for many productions (for example, the famous "West Side Story").

    A characteristic feature of this style is that the body is used to beat the rhythms of the music like a musical instrument or an entire drum set. To follow the rhythm, the center of gravity must be lower, so in jazz there is no such airiness and elongated and elongated lines as in ballet. Also, the emphasis of the step is not on the push, as in ballet, but on the setting of the foot, that is, the impulse of movement is directed towards the ground.

    Perhaps the most striking feature of jazz dance is isolation, in which one part of the body moves independently of the rest, following its own rhythm. Each part of the body is so prepared that it can move not only in isolation, but also in opposite directions. Dance figures are built from a combination of complex hand movements and intricate body movements that fit into a very intense rhythm of the music.

    This style flourished in the 60s. along with the rise of jazz music. Now the jazz style has changed a lot, incorporating the so-called social elements of dance: hip-hop, break, rap, funk, in other words, everything that show business stars dictate from TV screens today.

    An interesting fact is that dancers of ballroom dancing are also beginning to use jazz technique. This applies to the Latin American program, where jazz technique allows you to find new expressive means in dance. The body of the dancer, prepared by jazz technique, interprets the traditional technique of ballroom dance in a different way. The original coloring of habitual movements and the unusual interweaving of jazz and traditional ballroom dance schools open up new facets of dance.

    Today's jazz dance is dominated by hard rhythms, emotional pressure, even some aggression. In general, jazz and modern styles have much in common and sometimes the line between them is barely noticeable, but if modern originates from ballet, then jazz is more likely from "social" forms of dance.

    Jazz-modern classes develop flexibility, musicality, plasticity and the ability to control one's body.
    Uniform for classes: jazz or ballet flats, swimwear (tops, tight-fitting T-shirts / T-shirts) and loose-fitting sports trousers.

    Art Nouveau developed contrary to classical ballet, in which the dancers strove to go beyond the bored classics. Art Nouveau is even a kind of shocking, shocking familiar look of the viewer. A vivid example of this is the performances of famous classical ballets in the Art Nouveau style, which have very little in common with traditional ballet performances. Broken body movements, spectacular throws to the floor, incredible acrobatic figures and even some kind of optical special effects - the dance completely depends on the choreographer's imagination. In modern it is quite acceptable to dance barefoot, you can dance without clothes at all, and sometimes even without music. Modern is the avant-garde of ballet dance art, the eternal search for something new, this style simply cannot stand still, it constantly changes, puts risky experiments on classical dance. The term "modern" is more common in America. In Europe, the word "modern" (contemporary) is more often used. Sometimes several major dance schools that determined the development of this style are called modern dance, and everything else is called modern dance.

    The variety of expressive elements of modern dance makes it much more democratic and allows people who are plastically gifted to perform successfully, but who have already started dancing as adults and do not have sufficient skills for classical ballet.

    I know stories where dance classes helped people maintain relationships.
    When they completely changed self-esteem, gave confidence in their abilities, lit a fire in their eyes.
    Since ancient times, one of the most important virtues for men and especially girls was the ability to dance.

      At the start, you always want to get a quick result. When it doesn't happen, the hypothesis arises that everything takes time. After a conditionally acceptable time, humility comes to mastering pair dances, which, perhaps, is not given, and I will just do what I learned somehow.

      This is the most common story of those who believe that the fact of attending pair dance classes is enough to learn how to dance.
      Absolutely not. If you want to really dance well, you have to make an effort outside of the dance class. A good teacher will definitely be needed, but the initiative should be on your side.

      1. Listen to music

      The most common and accessible advice that is given already in the first lessons. And it definitely works. Music creates a certain atmosphere of the dance and intuitively you want to move to it. It doesn't matter where you listen to music - in the car, on headphones while walking or doing household chores.

      An addition that will help you dance better is your active participation in the music. Sing along, dance or simply beat musical accents with any free parts of the body. In the subway, for example, it is enough to tap out bright moments with your fingers, in the car to sing along with sounds, and at home you can jump for pleasure.

      2. Watch videos of good dancers

      It's complicated, but also obvious. It’s more difficult, because without recommendations from more experienced dancers, unfortunately, it’s not so easy to find a good quality video on the net (I mean not the resolution quality, but the content itself).

      Meaningful viewing of the video is to form an understanding of HOW the dancers make this or that impression on the partner or the viewer. Technology is at the heart of everything. Understanding how the pros do it is a big step forward.

      It is important to distinguish a show from a disco dance, a choreographed performance from an improvisation, a stylized dance from an authentic one, etc. Ask for recommendations, and dance instructors will always upload a couple of videos of worthy landmarks.

      3. Dance at salsathecas/milongas/discotheques

      A very delicate moment when it is worth coming to the first party. From a technical point of view, most students in 1-3 months have a sufficient set of figures and techniques to come and dance calmly. Psychologically, the same moment can be stretched out for an indefinite time. After all, it is imperative to “not lose face”, “learn more figures” and be sure what to do in case “there is an unfamiliar movement”.

      In fact, the party goers don't care (except for a small layer of non-professional teachers who want to help inexperienced dancers by treating them as customers in the future). It is important to come and try dancing after a month of classes. You can only with friends or guys from your group. This will be enough to feel the adrenaline and inspiration from the dance.

      4. Dance with partners or partners not of your level

      The conventional wisdom that you need to practice in groups of your level does not stand up to the test of experience. Perhaps now your eyes widened in surprise, and you want to meaningfully read the phrase again. Yes, you saw everything correctly: when you dance with a partner of your level, you don’t grow anywhere.

      It's important to understand that not only does it work one way and you have to dance with cooler dancers, but it works even more effectively the other way. It is no coincidence that teaching pair dances dramatically raises the level of the teacher himself. You have an endless stream of very beginner dancers.

      How it works. A more experienced partner needs to be "stretched". It's easy and obvious. With beginners, you need to take more initiative on yourself, see the general pattern of the dance more widely, turn on and insure more, try to be an example and be more careful. The quality of interaction begins to grow significantly. And wonderful partners too.

      Dancing with partners of your level doesn't make you grow. Dance with beginners and more advanced dancers

      5. Learn to dance for a partner and for a partner

      Turks and Argentines are one of the best partners in the world. In Russia, partners are highly valued. Why? The answer is simple. In Argentina and Turkey, it is not questionable for men to ask another man to lead in one piece or another and give feedback on the quality of the lead. For them, it will be a great shame to hear moralizing from a partner, or even more so to be known in the community as an insecure partner.

      In Russia, due to the constant, often far-fetched opinion that there are more women in pair dances, partners calmly get up and study their partner's part. Such partners then grow into very cool dancers and teachers. In no case do this at parties, only in class. Here we are talking only about the learning strategy. At parties, be yourself.

      6. Do not memorize links

      Always try to look deeper and understand the through principle and idea of ​​movement. Understanding what and how is done will make it possible to independently generate any sequences and chips.

      Human memory is limited and there will always be a moment when something will slip away and your repertoire will be limited by the size of RAM.

      In Argentine tango, for example, there are seven levels of movement construction that, when mastered, will allow you to make millions of combinations. And how many dance sequences can you really remember? In rueda, more than 150 figures dance in a rare circle. It's hard to keep more in mind.

      7. Develop your body

      Many years of experience in teaching pair dance shows that as soon as everyone pairs up in a class, any progress in individual style ends. But it is the individual style that distinguishes everyone at the disco: partners change, and style is always with you.

      The body as the main instrument of dance must be very plastic, responsive and emotional. Surprisingly, not all pair dance schools have a general physical warm-up. It is vital to tune the body and understand how it works.

      You can always train extra and concentrate more on the basic steps, as their true value is as body work. The sequence of steps is, in fact, the simplest thing that can be in pair dancing. The quality of individual performance determines the craftsmanship.

      8. Try on the images of inspiring dancers

      A psychological life hack for those who have already mastered the steps, but still feel that there is not enough brightness and drive. Most are terribly afraid of being someone else's "clone". Here the action is the same as under the influence of hypnosis - the more you resist, the more you plunge into an altered state of consciousness.

      With a high degree of probability, you are already dancing like someone else's "clone". A meaningful fitting of someone else's image is that you mentally take the image of the one who inspires you (inspiration is critical in this case) and "put on" yourself. Then you start dancing and trying to feel in general how it is to be able, for example, to be the best partner or the sexiest partner in a disco. This is much more difficult than it seems. But it works extremely efficiently.

      9. Dance to unformatted music

      Habitual rhythms keep you in tight limits. Tango salon or speedy timba leave little room for experimentation and fantasy. Pattern dancing is always noticeable and is reserved for beginners.

      The truly new is born outside of the usual. Look for places to experiment. If there is no place, organize self-training. The main thing is not to get carried away, because music determines the style. We bring something new to pair dances, rather than trying to change them.

      Search, improvise, don't be afraid to go beyond, develop in different directions, be inspired by music atypical for the style

      10. Try your hand at basic dance directions dances exist according to their own non-choreographic laws.

      This is the deepest delusion, which has turned into a ceiling for the qualitative development of partner dances. After all, all professional dancers, for example, in salsa or bachata, build their ideas on the basic choreographic principles.

      Do not think that choreography is applicable only on stage. Any meaningful movement of the body can be choreographic. In general, try classical or modern choreography. Basically, hip-hop can work too.

      11. Look for battle sensations

      Pair dances return us to an active position of manifestation of our body. As in the days of our ancient ancestors, we impress the members of the opposite sex by how dexterous, hardy, sexy, etc. we are. Modern laws of the jungle in the entourage of big cities.

      If you look around the dance floor, it becomes clear that the majority are clearly herbivores (not in the sense of vegetarians, but in relation to those around them). I am sure that predators are always more interesting in terms of the attractiveness of the image - try to find a counterbalance among herbivores, for example, a cat woman or a lion man.

      The conversation is about an internal position, not about aggressiveness. Lability and lack of control are inherent in adolescents, and not in adult self-sufficient people.

      Accordingly, even a training or friendly battle gives, on the one hand, practical skills - to make a bright sequence of movements, bring an idea to a climax, show a spectacular feature, on the other hand, develops the psychological basis of the dance - self-confidence, resistance to extraneous attention, self-control and self-control in complex elements.

      12. Communicate with professionals

      The environment shapes the internal position. Basically, real passionaries of the dance community are ready to openly talk, discuss and support the development of dance in every possible way. Universal principles and the ideas they articulate have a much longer and more practical perspective than meets the eye.

      Accept that, for example, behind the words "listen to your partner" lies not only a beautiful metaphor, but also the practical skill of literally listening to your partner. At the same time, always treat every thought, even the most respected teacher, as a private opinion.

      Your skill will lie in finding the scope of the idea even in conflicting opinions. Most often, the contradiction is speculative and the truth lies in the angle of perception or situationality.

      Your dancing growth will stop sooner or later. This can happen at the level of three basic steps or years of experience in teaching and show performances. Regardless of your level, the suggested 12 life hacks can get you off the ground and greatly accelerate your dance growth.
