Lately, I've been shaking my groove thang to the following song...it's "A Cause de Garcons" by Yelle and the dancers in the video are dancing Tecktonik style.
Tecktonik is a form of dance that's basically a blend of hip-hop, techno, glow sticking, and Vogueing. It started in the dance clubs of Paris, around the year 2000. Metropolis is the dance club that's often cited as the birthplace.
When I was in Paris this past May, I actually saw a group of kids Tecktonik dancing in a plaza (battling each other), but I thought that they were just "butch" Vogueing...me so ignorant!
I hear that some 50 year-old pop star (with scary looking hands), who just kicked off her tour, is actually Tecktonik dancing to one of her songs...my guess is either "Nobody Knows Me" or a revamped version (again) of "Vogue".
Oh, and I've been Tecktonik dancing for years, but never knew it...all it takes is a few drinky-drinks in me and I start to get my Drunk Crunk Tecktonik on.
