How To Airtrack

Become a breakdance master when you learn how to airtrack. The airtrack move is tricky and dangerous, but is the move that is probably most associated with break dancing. You'll start in a handstand with your legs open and then twist around on your shoulders through your torso. You can injure your neck if you don't airtrack properly, so take care learning this move and always have someone spot you. Practice on a soft surface such as a gym mat and keep the angle of your body low. When you airtrack, you don't actually want any part of your neck to come in contact with the ground.

  1. Stand with your feet a little more than shoulder's width apart. Bend forward and place the right hand on the ground. Kick the left leg up into the air.
  2. Once the raised leg is at a 45 degree angle with the floor, hop into the air with the foot that is on the ground. Lift that leg up into the air. Your feet should be spread apart.
  3. Place the opposite hand on the floor. Keep your hands about shoulder width apart. Swing the left leg around so that you land on the ground flat on your back.
  4. Lift your left leg into the air. Start to swing it over your body so that your foot starts to land on the ground. As you swing your leg over, plant your right elbow and forearm on the floor.
  5. End the airtrack on your forearms and knees. You can add more rotations by repeating steps two and three before kicking over onto your knees.
