Reverse Helicopter (Coffee Grinder) | Break Dancing

September 14, 2019


So now we’re here to do the coffee grinder,
which I call the helicopter. Remember, all these moves, there’s different
names. We didn’t have the Internet back then, so
people would see moves and just put names on it. It wasn’t like everybody knew the name or
the correct terminology. So don’t get mad, there’s different names. Alright, so anyways, the helicopter. We’re going to go right into the seat. This is our seat. Remember, we’re going to start here and end
here a lot of the times when we’re in footwork, alright? So, I’m going to do with my right leg, alright? Remember the first helicopter, or coffee grinder,
that we did was like this. In the previous video. Now we’re going to go backwards, alright? Alright, remember I stressed this part: lean
forward, then leaning back; lean forward, leaning back. Alright? This is crucial. But, we’re going to sneak our leg in between
there, alright? Lean forward, put my hands, my right leg’s
going to go around, and that’s when I lean back, and I jump back, alright? So lean forward, hop, your leg comes through. Lean forward, you’re going to hop forward,
and lean back. Alright? And when you get good at it, you can use one
hand. Oh, snap. Alright? Two hands, alright? But make sure you get the two hands first. But, it’s important that you guys do it both
ways. So, we’ll do it on our left side. Remember, the more you do things on each side,
the more vocabulary you have. Alright, so now same thing. Alright, I’m going to lean forward, put my
hand, my left leg’s going to come around behind us, I’m going to hop forward, lean back. Alright? Lean forward, lean back. Alright? Keep your leg straight. Other leg. Helicopter, aka coffee grinder, let’s go.

  1. We have a boys dance group stage high school as I am in it as we have to do the helicopter in it so thx very much!!!!

  2. This takes me back. It is important to learn to do both sides. I used to preach that, but when I learned to deal craps I HATED dealing and cutting chips with my left hand, or when I moved to 2nd base and had to deal with my left. Well explained!
