Wonder What Happened To “Turbo” From The “Breakin'” Movie? Found Him!

Posted On : April 18, 2017

breakin turbo now-Boogaloo was employed as a personal dance consultant to Michael Jackson throughout most of the 80s and the early 90s. Ain’t that something?!!

-He’s still dancing and spent his years making a living doing choreography, teaching private lessons and doing trade shows in Europe and Japan. Dancing is in his blood and it doesn’t look like he has any plans on stopping soon.

Watch this funny video clip of Boogaloo on the Steve Harvey Show as he tries to teach Steve the moonwalk…

Here’s another recent video clip of Boogaloo doing his thing:

-When Boogaloo isn’t dancing, he’s mentoring young up and coming dancers who strive to reach what he accomplished.

Boogaloo also credits his former co-star Shabba-Doo for schooling him on the business side of dancing when he was still a teenager.

At 49 years old, Boogaloo is fortunate enough to continue to live out his dream of dancing. We’re happy to see the brotha doing well and get this, we actually might see him again on the big screen in a new Breakin’ movie. The last we heard was that he was in talks for that at the present moment, although there has been no confirmation. I’m curious to see how well that would go over in today’s hip hop environment because breakdancing is a lost art and the new dances in hip hop are either for 9 year olds to do, or are so incredibly weird that us grown folks wouldn’t dare attempt to do them. A 50 something year old doing the ‘nae nae’ and ‘dabbin’ should be a crime.
