The Peoria Journal Star dedicates a large chunk of its Thursday entertainment "Cue" section today to news that Peoria is hosting a breakdancing national tournament, Saturday at an exhibit hall in the Peoria Civic Center.
My first thought was, "I'll take Irrelevant Things from the 80's for $200, Alex." But then again, I've never had even the smallest interest in breakdancing or anything hip hop-related. One thing I'll concede to the breakdancers -it looks difficult. I doubt I or most folks could do it (not that I'd want to.) But if this floats your boat, the "Rep the Midwest" breakdancing competition begins at 2p, Saturday. Admission is $10 for adults. Below is a video teaching you to back spin. In no time, you'll be impressing your grand kids!
