Who is the best hip hop dancer in the world? – Social Dance Curriculum
Kotter of the French DJ duo Yung Glor is definitely not the best hip hop dancer in the world at the moment. You could argue that he still has time to improve his work.
The guy is in his 50’s, has done more than a lot of people his age. He knows his dance steps and has an extraordinary style. This is a far cry from the stereotypical hip hop dancer you see on the big screen: the short, bulky black male figure. But the guy is a real artist, even if his skills are lacking on a technical level to put him outside the top ten.
We would love to hear your thoughts on Kotter’s current level of skill. Is he on his way to becoming the next great hip hop dancer? What do the results have to do with his age and work ethic?
Travis County has received an additional $7 billion in county-funding from the State of Texas.

The county is paying down $600 million from the city of Austin’s share of the cost of maintaining Austin Public Schools at current levels. The total total for the county’s share of the system is $3.4 billion, which is about the same as last year.
The biggest increase comes in school safety funding, which will amount to $1.5 billion over the next decade, with most of that coming from the state’s $4 billion Emergency Financial Management Account.
The county also gets $3.4 billion in a special account to pay for the annual flood insurance payments that have helped offset the impact of the catastrophic flooding in the city following Hurricane Harvey.
