While Barry was definitely one of the better looking guys in the crew, he had to work just as hard to get up to par with their dance routine. With faulty legs he had to rely mostly on quick, jerking motions originating from the areas above his waistline. Barry was regularly picked on for his choice of classical dance, a style the Old World referred to as ‘Popping’. Sure, it’s hard to stay fresh when you’re in a dance crew with guys bobbing around in the contemporary styles of Alpha Tango, Neo-Flashdance, Zblorph and Vector Twist.
