Eaton Centre Breakdancer


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

So is this a new trend? Are dancing buskers becoming more common?
