We thought maybe we could hang with the break dancers at the Visual Arts Collective back in April, however the throwdown was anything but old school. Nary a centipede or normal backspin was to be found. Instead we found extreme athleticism coupled with varied degrees of rhythm and subtlety that blew us out of the water. While we were raised on "Beat It," we still don't know the names of the moves, but props to the one-armed upside down bounces, diagonalized flips and things that should make heads hurt.
