Tecktonic Comes To America
Tecktonik (AKA "Wantek") is a form of dance that first appeared in Paris in 2000 in a nightclub called Metropolis.
Tecknonic dance borrows heavily from elements of hip-hop dance moves including popping and locking, not to mention hints of vogueing as well.
Tecktonic has been growing in popularity worldwide, and lately you can start seeing the dance taking over in the states (LA & NY more so).
One of the most notable musicians for Tecktonic dance is YELLE. Check out the video for their song...(it's more of an art piece for tecktonik).
It's pretty exciting to see kids expressing themselves thru dance.
