5.0 out of 5 stars one of the top 5 B-Boy videos November 28, 2004
By L. May
After having bought and watched about 30 B-Boy videos of all kinds, having read half a dozen books about B-Boying, having watched and loved B-boying since the early 80s, and having participated in this dance form myself (on a non-pro level) I can say with confidence about this video...

*the instructors featured are not only top-notch dancers, they are very good teachers with good communication skills; they make this stuff look easy and it is way easier for you after you watch their video; I have literally never seen a teacher of the art form who is half as effective as Zulu Gremlin

*this video is a technical and historical landmark: you can probably learn more of what you want and need to know about B-boying from this video than from any other video in existence; there's a minimum of the usual clowning and posturing BS and lots of authentic history from people you never heard of who laid the cornerstones of the old school; some of them are very insightful dudes you need to hear if you think you already know what real hip hop is and how we got where we are now

*the production quality of the teaching segment is mostly way above average; the battle footage quality is a bit above average but nothing to write your homies about

If you only buy one B-Boy video in your entire life you should buy the Detours video at detoursvideo.com. When viewing Detours be sure to wear a helmet or other protective headgear to catch your mind in when it gets blown. If you only buy two B-Boy videos, Breakdance Step-by-Step should be the second.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE VERY BEST! August 18, 2004
Verified Purchase
This two disc dvd is worth way more than $27! It's a great bargain. You'll learn the basic moves up to power moves and it is easy to follow. The moves are filmed in every possible angle for better understanding. When I began watching this dvd, I was surprised to know I had a few moves already down, but I wasn't aware the moves were of this style (bboying). If you want to learn to bboy (or breakdance. same thing), this is a must have dvd!! You can find official clips of this dvd if you're not sure if it's right for you.

Good: This is the best thing I have ever bought it teaches u pretty plain and simple but yet very detailed and clean, I learned the moves pretty fast. I'm 15 years old, showing off at school gets u so much attention. I would say the guy teaching u talks at about a medium pace, not too slow, not too fast. U learn like 30+ moves on this DVD. Its only 27$ free shipping, I would say that's cheap as hell, a lot better than going to a dance school (very very few teach bboying). Impress your friends, maybe even get some girls (I did), hell, do it for a hobby incase u have no life like I used have. This is the Shiz.
Bad: My only gripe about this DVD is that they don't teach 1 move, the Air Flare (it's a power move, pretty much the hardest move, the god of all moves) the only reason I'm saying this is because the DVD has 30+ moves spread across 2 DVDs, why not include just one more move. THIS should definitely not stop u from buying this DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Will teach you steps but not how to break dance June 17, 2005
Verified Purchase
Before I saw this video I had never tried any of this. I went to a ton of raves and did liquid but was always amazed by the break dancing I saw going on. Based on the reviews here I decided to try this video.

After watching this video about a dozen times I'm only slightly better off than I was. There is no doubt that these guys are awesome dancers. They do break down everything into small steps and go over them slowly. The problem is that I can do every single step that they show slowly but they turn up the speed by ten, put everything together and talk more about style than instructing you through it.

The idea is that they don't want you to copy their style but evolve your own. I agree with that. But if you are a novice, like myself, than you want to be walked through one or two full routines so you feel you can move through all the different steps with ease. Only once I have that down can I begin to modify and add my own style. If you ever took dance lessons as a kid, you know that is how the professionals teach you.

If you are someone who already can do the basics of beat boy dancing this would be a phenomenal video for you. However, if you are like me and never tried it before in your life get this video later on.

Music overplays guy speaking. It is not a good sounding film. If you do better at visual than this would be a great video.
