Tecktonik History — A Revolutionary Dance Style



There are no rules to dancing Electro House music, but if you wanna look like the John Travolta of the new Millenium, then you may try some Tecktonik moves on the dancefloor. Tecktonik is an Electro dance, which originated in the suburbs of Paris, France during the mid-2000s. The creator of Tecktonik was Alexandre Barouzdin, believe it or not, he was a serious investment banker. In 2001, Barouzdin and his friend Cyril Blanc started a project/party event called (Tecktonik Killer Nights), at one of the biggest clubs in France, The Metropolis. Five or six years later, everybody was talking about this new frenetic dance, and now it’s part of Electro House music and culture.

In this dance style, there are a lot of arm movements and the feet rotate from side to side in time with the beat, let’s say it’s like a mixture of breakdance, techno, and rave. People who dance Tecktonik drink a lot of energy drinks because they’ll make some strong movements with their bodies (80% arms and 20% legs). I have uploaded an example below so that you can see Tecktonik dancers doing their best moves 🙂
