Cecab Rotterdam vs Groove Kings – A Face Off!

Saturday my friend Penny and I went into Rotterdam for a girl’s day before she leaves for holiday to California for three weeks. We shopped, had lunch, shopped, sat on some terraces and shopped.  It was a beautiful with our first 20+ degree weather of the year.

After the Face Off

At the end of the day we went to watch a display that was being put on by two clubs here in Rotterdam, Cecab Holland and Groove Kings.  It was a lighthearted face off between the Capoeira club and the breakdancers, and it was SO much fun to watch!



Before it all got started, the capoeira club put on a display for the crowd.  It’s such a strange sort of martial arts, but the chanting and music was oddly relaxing.

Then these guys showed up, and the fun really began!  I really love watching breakdancers. I wish there was somewhere I could go on sunny afternoons to watch them perform and take photos.  I had only my point and shoot with me that day, I really wished I had brought my DSLR.


I still managed to get some pretty good photos though, and I’m so glad I had a camera with me at all!  I would never have known this was going on if my husband hadn’t seen an ad for it in the paper and told me about it.  He knows I love this stuff!

It was amazing what some of them could do.  The flips, jumps, twists and bends that the rest of us mere mortals couldn’t even imagine being able to pull off without a trampoline and a body cast.

Here’s some video I took throughout.  It was better to see the movement than just photos, I think.
