I was down at Eaton Centre two weeks ago, and came across this breakdancer on the corner of Yonge & Dundas. There's always an interesting array of buskers there, but I have never seen a dancing busker, except for in San Francisco two years ago when I shot a video of an older lady taking over some muscle dude's dance routine. (That was hilarious!) This guy is pretty funny too – it's hard not to laugh at him with that silly mask on, no?
Here's what watching this guy will cost you, according to his "Donations Make Me Dance" sign:
- less than $1.00 = popping and locking / just poses
- $1.00 or more = footwork and poses
- $5.00 or more = Power Moves!! Flips spinning tricks
You can see more videos of this guy on YouTube at youtube.com/bboystunz.
So is this a new trend? Are dancing buskers becoming more common?
