This is Atlanta with Alicia Steele

Burn Unit

Watch This Is Atlanta on PBA30 Atlanta's PBS StationYou probably remember break-dancing, the fad from the Eighties that you thought went the way of the single sequined glove. Most break-dancers moved on to another trend, but some never quit. They only got better.

Burn Unit is a co-ed, multi-ethnic crew of Atlanta breakers (or b-boys and b-girls, the preferred terms) who keep the hip hop traditions alive.

You may have tried a fairly basic move like the “coffee-grinder” yourself back in the day, but the form has evolved fantastically.

Burn Unit and other modern day b-boys have incorporated elements of gymnastics, martial arts, capoiera, and even animal movements to create a style that never fails to amaze.

Want to pick up some skills? Burn Unit teaches a beginner b-boy/b-girl class on Sundays at Georgia Tech which is open to both students and non-students.
