Have you always wanted to be b-boy? Here's your chance. No more faking the funk! This Saturday at Cherry Creek Dance on Third and Clayton, three bona fied floor wreckers -- Visa from Dance2Live, Mattlock from the Groproject and BREAKERONE9 from Lordz of Finesse -- will be on hand to show you how to toprock, how to do freezes and how to master your footwork. The class, which runs from 4-7 p.m. and is open to all ages and all skill levels, is $35 if you pre-register and $40, if you wait until the day of the event. Call Cherry Creek Dance (303-399-8087) to sign up or to get more info. If that's too rich for your blood -- after all, we're in a recession here, for chrissakes -- clear a space on your floor and follow the jump for some handy DIY b-boy instruction via YouTubage. Prepare to roll around on the ground in style, as the first clip proclaims. Go on now, Crazy Legs. What are you waiting for? Have at it!
