In The Netherlands, Gabber Hardcore is the music of choice for rebellious young people, much like punk and underground hip-hop in the US. It is a blisteringly fast style of electronic music which might seem hard to dance to at first. Enter the hakken, the dance of choice for the Gabber listener. Watch this video to learn how to do the hakken, and you will know what to do next time you're at a hardcore club in Holland.
Translation from the Dutch, by the Creator:
put decent shoes on (Nike Air Max Classics)
Try to make the next movement with your feet
(tip) kick them a little bit out on the end it this so it looks nicer
Try to do step two faster
We are now going to learn the first move: Het overstapje (The Changeover)
Practice this until you have enough skills. It needs to be a smooth transition
This move can be used when the beat is irregular. You will feel that feet tap is out of the normal hak rhythm
Also as feet tap this move can be used when the beat is irregular in a track.
To use these moves you can show the people a brackpoint/interval.
These are the six steps to learn normal hakken
Don't forget this is only a example always created your own style
Now we continue with the advanced way of hakken
The basic is one of the most difficult move from this type of hakken
Try to do this move 100% right before you go further
This will make the rest of the steps a lot easier.
Bring your feet to the back
Lift your other feet up
Put your right leg behind with a little step and throw at the same time your left leg to the front
Kick your feet away
Throw your right feet against your left
Step twice with your left feet to the side and throw him then behind your right leg
This could also be turned round
Now Im showing you quick two movies of how you can hak if you can do all the previous steps
