Legendary Hip Hop | Boogaloo Shrimp Moonwalks

Over the last two posts, we've covered two legendary crews, the Electric Boogaloos and the Lockers. Here we showcase a dancer who can be considered a product of the two.

Michael "Boogaloo Shrimp" Chambers is a master of popping, with some locking and bboying thrown in there for good measure. He was taught by Electric Boogaloo member Boogaloo Sam, and would later go on to collaborate with Popin Pete, Locker member Shabba-Doo, and fellow Legendary Dancer Poppin Taco. His major claims to fame are appearing as Turbo in the Breakn' dance movie series, and teaching the moonwalk to Michael Jackson. You can see this iconic dance move in this video (from the Breakin' movie) at about 0:15.
