WATCH: These gymnastic Japanese breakdancers will leave you breathless

Gravity, where is thy sting?


Their youthful joints were evident, but they’ll hit hard when they’re fully grown, and the background group work was innovative. Very nicely done!


Breaking is free-form, improvisational dance, based on responding to a live DJ and crew vs. crew dance battles - THAT is a professionally choreographed dance/acrobatics performance.

Even if it’s using some break moves, that right there, is one hell of a lot closer to American cheerleading competition than dancing.


I also had the thought that it looked a lot like an American competitive cheerleading routine. But a bad-ass awesome American competitive cheerleading routine with some b-boy attitude and without all the rules prohibiting dangerous flips and stuff.


That was excellent. And as @jonathanpeterso says, it’s more acrobatics than dance.
Although not nearly as energetic, this guy’s flawless and subdued moves had me open-jawed.
And the music’s better.


That’s Nonstop, you mean his performance there as part of a trio?


Hadn’t seen that.
