Biomechanical analysis of the breakdance move flare

Supervisor: Thomas Bull Andersen



This colloquium will shed light on the mechanics behind the breakdance move named Flare, which breakdancers execute in their breakdance battles. The Flare is an intriguing movement where the breakdancer at any time only support their moving body on single hand. Based on video recordings of the Flare, a biomechanics analysis is provided of this breakdance movement. The biomechanics analysis might not only explain the physics behind the Flare, but might as well be a help for you and others learning the Flare!
