FLEXING - A PAINFULLY GOOD FORM OF DANCE



Written by Jack Blocker

The New Yorker recently profiled Havoc Marche, a Brooklynite and practitioner of a dance called 'Flexing.' It's similar to body-popping but slightly less frenetic, arguably resembling the stuttering action of a scratched DVD. It's mesmerising. Whatever you make of it, I'm sure most of us will react in the same way: How does the human body do such things?

What you're most likely to notice is the strain on Havoc's face. That's because the dance, he says, was a way to communicate the stresses of life when words weren't enough. 

Here's another clip of Havoc in action. Good luck busting these moves out in the club tonight.
