BBoy Toprock

Updated on July 3, 2011

When I was 10, 11 and 12 years old I learned how to breakdance with some of my neighbourhood friends by watching a few movies. Check this guy out:

What B.yu is showing us is called toprock, which is the dance that a breakdancer (aka a bboy) does while being vertical and up off the floor.

I wish I could dance like this guy and have created this hub as a spot for me to go to so that I can come back easily to these videos to see if I can improve how I dance. B.yu goes through explaining his moves in subsequent videos:

He goes on to provide some more steps and their instructions in the next one:

He continues the tutorial with a third part that shows some variations:

B.yu never did a fourth part, but what he provided in the first three is certainly sufficient to teach anyone how to do toprock really well.

If you are interested in learning toprock, or improving the toprock you already know with some new moves, I definitely recommend these videos.

      Pretty sweet. I love watching youtube videos of people dancing. Its either awesome or hilarious. Have you ever heard of jump style? Its a new-ish dance craze in europe and the videos are absolutely hilarious and awesome at the same time. I dont really know how to describe it. Check it out by searching for jump style on youtube. Great hub. Voted up + Awesome!

      I am trying to work out a way to watch this video on the TV in the gym at my job so I can go once a week in an evening and try to learn from him, hopefully I can work it out. Thanks for stopping by, Sweetie.

      Beautiful dance steps. Though i saw only the first video, it was great. This guy in blue shirt is though only showing leg movements in begining but is very graceful and then with hand movements it got a very difficult dance.
