My son showed me these Elastic Illusion guys from a site called youtube. What can I say, I had so much fun watching their videos with my son, that I bought him both of their dvds. One teaches robot and one teaches breakdance. Now he watches the Top 20 Breakdance DVD with his friends and they always practice. I can almost say that my son's Playstation is collecting dust, well not quite, but this is the first interest in physical activity my son has had since he stopped playing competitive sports. I am so happy that he has found a healthier activity. I think the instructor ACE is a very inspirational teacher for males who are worried that dance is just for girls. Two thumbs up from a happy DAD! Just the opening menu screen alone is quite hysterical.

Top 20 Breakdance Moves is a refreshing how-to-dance video that demonstrates some of the most popular and well-known hip-hop / breakdancing moves. The reason why this video is refreshing and unlike other how-to-dance videos is that the instructor "Ace" really spends a great deal of time breaking down each movement so one can really get an understanding. There's a lot of emphasis on the fundamental movements needed to perform the moves which makes it stand out from other dance videos.

HOWEVER, the best thing about this video is the entertainment aspect. I guarantee will you not stop laughing while you're trying to learn the moves. Ace presents each lesson with different characterizations that keeps things from ever getting boring. This video is so entertaining you could simply watch it straight through.

Seriously though, for the price, I don't think there's a better video that breaks down the fundamentals needed to learn the moves. And, what is already a comprehensive video (over 2 hours long!) is made better by the fact that it's entertaining as well. Highly recommended!

The instructor "Ace" is very, very funny. I can watch this video over and over and still laugh. He also breaks down the moves very slowly so you can actually learn the moves. Most "learn dance" videos require one to watch the moves over and over so I can't over emphasize how great it is to laugh while learning the moves.

As for some reviews the criticize this DVD as not being "true breakdance" moves. I'm a Bboy and I would would agree that most would consider only about 5 of the moves taught as "breakdance moves" and the other 15 as "party dances." But so what? Many breakers can use a few more "dancey" moves to mix in with their "power moves."

This is a great DVD and emphasizes one of the most important aspects of dance. That it should be fun.

The only criticism I have of this video is that it would have been useful to be able to loop the same move over and over without rewinding.

I bought this DVD after watching a few of the clips on youtube. I am very happy with it. I am a beginner at breakdancing, and I learnt a lot of the moves from the DVD after repeated viewing and practise. The instructor Ace is not only talented, but extremely hilarious. He demonstrates 20 different types of Break dance moves from Hammer, Michael Jackson (Moon walk, Side Glide), Heel Toe, Snake, Arm Wave, Body Wave, Chicken Head etc. I agree with some of the reviewers, some parts are so funny that I had rewind the clip to watch the moves again; because I would be laughing so hard, that I would miss the instruction the first time. He first starts out each move with a demonstration, then he follows it up with breaking it down and then doing a final demo in slow motion. There are a few moves which seem kinda outdated, but for the most part, I loved the DVD.

Most of these are not Bboy moves! The turtle, windmill, baby freeze, and coffee grinder are the only bboy moves on the dvd. The rest are old school dances like the cabbage patch. C'mon!
>:(

Watch the 4 bboy segments on Youtube and buy "Breakdance Step by Step" instead. Or the "How to Breakdance" series by Mike Garcia aka Breaker.

This is a funny DVD until you think about the $27 wasted.

This is an OK video series. The quality is very bad, and the instruction method is rather confusing. You also can find them on youtube. Its well organized, however, and will teach you if you put the time into it.

Ace will teach you to moonwalk, six step, wave, body wave, worm, james brown and laugh till it hurts. Not only is he a great dancer and instructor that will break down each move into it's most basic parts, he also has a great sense of humor. The video is basic enough for those with little dance experience to learn from and the funny parts will keep everyone entertained throughout - I can see people having fun by learning from this DVD in a group.

I especially liked the moonwalk section taught by "Ace Jackson" - I seriously had to rewind the video because I missed parts b/c I was laughing too hard. Get the video, you will learn some moves and laugh - real hard.

Nonostante sia in inglese il tutto è capibilissimo. Comunque si può provarne un assaggio su youtube con la key breakdance dvd. In pratica come ho fatto io. Ho visto che funzionava ed ho preso il dvd perché merita. Amazon è molto affidabile, a me il dvd è arrivato nel giro di 15 gg con la spedizione standard, ma io sono di Milano, magari per Palermo ci vuole qualche giorno in più.
Comunque ve lo consiglio caldamente. Buy the DVD. Hare Shilvio. Hare, hare papi. Buy the DVD.
