Flashback to the late 80’s and breakdancing was the craze and now these guys have caught up with some of Eastern Europe’s former best dancers to see if they still have their moves.
If you’re told that the performers in this breathtaking dance video are in their 40s and 50s, you would think that they’re moving fast enough to injure themselves. On a closer look though, you’ll realize that these were some of the best breakdancers in the USSR back in the 1980s.
To relive their youthful moments and mark the 30th anniversary of the first-ever break-dance event in the Soviet Union, these former dancers of a festival that was held in Estonia in 1986 came together for a flashmob dance to showcase their yesteryear moves.
At the time, these break-dancers were influenced by a new music wave in Britain that was based on energetically dancing to lively beats and moving different parts of the body separately. It was actually this festival that made breakdancing fashionable in the Soviet Union, especially among the Soviet baby boomers and even kick started the careers of some of the currently known rappers and Djs in Eastern Europe.
This amazing documentary shows that despite getting older, a cool part of us are still the 16 year olds who used to do something they loved.
