France has dancin’ fever: The Tecktonik

Apparently for a few years now all the electro kids in Paris have been doing this dance called the Tecktonik to all that electro-house on Ed Banger. Now I don’t know how much of these dance moves are really new… it looks a lot like poppin and locking and old-school rave glow stick dancing to me, but you gotta dig this whole French hip kid spin on going apeshit on the dancefloor. There seems to be a lot of wrapping your arms around your head.

Check out these guys: (note that the fellow in front is sporting both a fanny pack and a mullet)

Wikipedia says:

Tecktonik (also known as “tck“,”electro dance” “vertigo“, “Milky Way“) is a form of dance based on a blend of techno styles (late 80s vogue, 90s  waving and old school breakdancing), started in 2007 in Paris at the outrageous club Metropolis by Hussein Ezzo and some other dancers.[1] The music Tecktonik is usually danced to is electro house. Tecktonic has not yet succeeded in creating its own musicgenre, even though multiple attempts have been made.

About a minute into this video all these French girls have these psuedo b-girl Tecktonik battles:

This kid here will show you a thing or two. I guarantee you that this badass has made out with every girl in his seventh grade class: (you can tell he isn’t effing around by his wristband 35 seconds in)

All in all, I give this whole Tecktonic dance craze two gyrating and flailing thumbs up. How sweet would it be to go to a house party where everybody is Tecktonic dancing all over the place, bumping into things and knocking lamps off of end tables?
