How to Perform Basic Breakdance Moves

Ever thought it might be cool to impress your friends with your hip breakdancing moves? Here’s some good news: you can learn how to breakdance simply by learning a few basic moves and following a few simple steps.

Instructions:
Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Things You’ll Need:
  • Music
  • A large, smooth floor
  • Breakdancing videos
  • Protective gear

  • Preparation

    Step1
    Play some hip-hop music you can breakdance to.
    Step2
    Make sure you have a large, smooth floor to practice on. If you want to go old school, lay down some flattened cardboard boxes.
    Step3
    Wear comfortable clothes as well as protection, such as sneakers, knee pads, elbow pads, wrist bands, a head band and gloves.
    Step4
    Do a few stretches before you start to warm up your muscles and prevent injury.


    Learn the Top-Rock (or Up-Rock)

    Step1
    Master this basic breakdancing move first.
    Step2
    Start on your left foot, with your right foot back and your arms held backward.
    Step3
    Jump forward on your right foot while at the same time sending your left foot back. Don’t drag your feet; only let them touch the ground for steps.
    Step4
    Bring your left foot forward halfway while you swing your right foot back halfway in an arc—this is the “transition.”
    Step5
    Swing your right foot in to replace the left as the left goes back; pump backward with your arms.
    Step6
    Kick forward with your left and kick back with your right, swinging your arms back for balance, and landing your weight on your left.
    Step7
    Step forward with your right halfway, swinging your left back in an arc.
    Step8
    Move from left to right, and you’re ready to go again!


    Learn Other Moves and Steps

    Step1
    Watch other “breakers” (people who breakdance) and see how they move.
    Step2
    Rent or buy breakdancing videos.
    Step3
    Practice with friends or while watching breakdancing movies.
    Step4
    Take a breakdance class or workshop if such a thing exists in your community.

    Tips & Warnings

    • Record yourself or have someone record you as you breakdance so you can review it later to spot things moves you need to work on.
