The windmill is a classic Hip Hop dance move in which the legs are lifted high in the air and twisted in a windmill pattern, while the torso and head rest against the floor.  The world record for the most windmills – the most recognizable move in breaking – was completed simultaneously by the largest group of dancers aged between 15 and 50 years old.

The world renowned breakers spun together in the eponymous backdrop of Kinderdijk, Netherlands a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its iconic 18th-century windmills. The Hip Hop scene in the Netherlands has been growing dramatically over the past few years and as a not to this trend the annual Red Bull BC One World Final will be held in Amsterdam on November 4th.

The world record was set at Kinderdijk, a village in the Netherlands’ South Holland province, known for its iconic 18th-century windmills and a monument to the history of humankind that was officially included as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.

Over the past few years, the Hip Hop scene – and the culture that surrounds it – has grown dramatically, with rappers like Poke and Brainpower filling the country with old school beats and fuelling a society of talented breakers, battling in competitions around the Netherlands and around the World.

Leading the breakers will be Italy’s Mauro Peruzzi – aka Cico, the ‘Prince of Power’. Known for his dynamic, gymnastic, power moves, Cico is one of the most impressive talents in the B-Boy Dance form today and this is not his first World Record. Especially heralded for his energetic airflare combination moves and incredible ‘1990s’, where he spins and speed in a one-armed handstand, holding the World Record with a mind-boggling 27 revolutions.

The World Record Breaking event marks the growing breaking scene in the Netherlands, with Amsterdam hosting this year’s BC One World Finals.
