Six Step to Baby Freeze Transition

Freezes are an important aspect of bboying. It doesn't take long to learn a few basic freezes but usually a new bboy has difficulting transitioning into and out of freezes and making it look good. Here is a video of me doing some baby freezes, first without a transition (notice how long it takes), then with a transition from six step to baby freeze. The baby freezes with the transition look a lot smoother and better.

Headstand to Airbaby Transition

I have been working on an airbaby freeze of about 2 months. At this point I can do a two handed airbaby freeze pretty well but as you can see in the video it takes a long time to set up, clearly not something you can do at a club or competition. I found a good way to transition to airbaby is from a headstand position.

And yes I did film this video while I was wearing my pajamas.

Worm Transition

Last week I made my first attempt at creating a new move. It might have been done before but I haven't seen anyone do it before. If it has been done before post a link in the comments. I practiced this for over and hour. The next day my back hurt so bad I could barely walk.

It's not the best move ever and it can use some work but people seemed to like it Friday night at Sapphire, a bar in Bethesda.

First Video

I am posting my first bboy video. I know it is not very good but I'd like to be able to see how much progress I am making so I need a starting point. This was shot after I had been breaking for about a month. I know the filming isn't so great (thanks Alex) and you couldn't hear the music in the background so I added a beastie boys song so it wouldn't look weird but clearly the beat does not sync up to what was playing when the video was playing.
