The hippest of today's French youth can't get enough of Tecktonik
--a dance (YT)
, cultural movement
and apparent marketing ploy (in French)
, Tecktonic is a style of dance characterized by its lack of footwork and embrace of various ridiculous arm gestures. Coupled with a strong fashion sense (in French)
involving copious amounts of neon
, pseudo (or full-on) mullet haircuts
and jeans that could be painted on
, Tecktonik is a dance craze that, since its birth in 2000 at a Parisian nightclub, has only increased in popularity
I can tell you're entranced! Why not give it a try yourself
? After you've practiced some of those fly moves, you can dance along to some of the big Tecktonik singles
