World’s first recorded Headspin!

Sup ReFresH.  It’s been a while since I posted here, so thought I’d put something up.  Thank you all for showing me love on my birthday.  =)

Here are a few clips of one of my biggest inspiration’s: bboy Ynot from Rock Steady Crew.  Lady’s and gents–now this is how you toprock.  Also notice his nasty musicality.

Also, check out Bboy Alien Ness–president of Mighty Zulu Kings.  Stylistically, my favorite bboy–even though he doesn’t break as much anymore because of health reasons.  He’s been breakin for over 27 years, so his sense of flow is just ridiculous.

Also, here is the world’s first recorded headspin.  The video was recorded by Thomas Edison in 1898.  Notice, he almost looks like he’s practicing a set.

Enjoy!

Remember bboys and bgirls, breaking is first and foremost an attitude.  The most important thing is to have character.  As bboy Poe One (MZK, Style Elements, Rock So Fresh) once said, you can teach anyone all the foundational moves and steps in breaking, but what reaaally makes it breaking is having that bboy attitude.  Haha, this is after he spent 4 months trying to teach ballet dancers how to break, but what he noticed was that while they all knew how to do the moves, they couldn’t do it with that bboy character.  They were all doing it like ballet dancers.  And I think that honestly is the essence of breaking.  Kinda like House, it’s really a feeling. =)

Hope that helps guys.  Do your best, and don’t get discouraged or frustrated if you’re not feelin it.  Just have fun and be yourself.  Be confident and comfortable.  That’s the best way to improve.  =)

Hope that helps.
