A few weeks back a friend showed me a video, that stuck with me. It was the music video for Yelle – A Cause Des Garcons the song itself is super catchy. But also in the video, are these kids with Mohawk Mullets waving their hands around in some sort of crazy dance style. I couldn’t shake the song or dancing out of my head, so I did some research. Turns out it’s called Tecktonik and originated in Paris.
While this “new” dance craze has recently blown up in France and other countries, it has been around for years. Part of the Electro Dance “family” it also draws inspiration from other dances; such as shuffling, hard-style, jump-style and others. I think we will see more Tecktonik in the states soon as the boom for electro music here continues to grow.
Check out the video that intrigued me so much as well as a French documentary about the Tecktonik craze.
