Are there any 1980's breakdancers here?

Recommended Posts

Did anyone used to do breakdancing/bodypopping in the 80's when, in my opinion, it was at its best?

The Limit nightclub on a Saturday morning used to hold a breakdancing club, did anyone used to go, or have any other great memories of the time/music etc? :love:

Breakdancing was great (still is) and loved the breakdance film and the music, was it Ollie and Jerry who did "theres no stopping us" ?. Old mates of mine Mark and Paul use to tell me they went to the Limit breakdance club although i never went myself.

i remember an event at the nelson mandela building about '84. i represented our youth-club (miners welfare, high green).

 

i was about 10 years old and must have been one of the youngest.

 

i also remember the lads that used to dance in jd sports about the same time - smack 19?

 

good days indeed. loved the music/clothes/dancing.

Yeah Smac 19 were the best if I'm honest, but seen as I went out with a member of 'Street Crew' for a while, I'm a bit bias to them! I have a video of them all (that I recorded off the telly in '85! LOL) when they held the Calendar break dancing comp at Nelson Mandela building in Pond Street. There's just about every Sheff breakdancer on there either in a crew competing or in the crowd! I went through a phase a few months ago, playing it to see who I could spot from back then! My lad is into street dancing and I got the video out to show him that us 'oldies' have been there and done that one! And he was well impressed LOL! Those were the days! Still see quite a few of the lads from back then and they haven't changed that much (well some of em!) though I'm not sure they'd manage to be still doing drunken flares at weddings! LOL - nice one silki1 - would have liked to have seen that! Which crew were you in silki1?
