Breakdancing at the old Forum

Some years back the old Montreal Forum, home of the Canadiens hockey team, was converted into, among other things, a multiplex movie theatre. Some reminders of the building's past use remain, including the recreation of centre ice. This area has now been taken over by break dancers who take turns dancing, demonstrating their moves and helping others learn. (I wrote about them once before.) As I watched from this high vantage point, I saw a few of them spinning on their heads. It's nice to see young people create their own learning and sharing space and to know they are welcome in this public place.
