World In Action


The hardest breakdancing move to perform is generally agreed to be the 'World in Action'. In this move, the bboy will remain in the same stance, hands to the side, body stiff, but will rotate wildly around their own centre of gravity, sometimes for up to 5 minutes. The appearance of this astonishing move is similar to a gyroscope, or Da Vincis 'Vitruvian Man', (the logo for British TV show World in Action, for which the move is named).

The three people known to be able to perform this move are Pfunk, Mr Oboe, and Heavy Critic, who won the all-jewish breakdance championship in Ireland in 1950.
