Tecktonik seems to be a new French electro-dancing style as well as a modern name for French Electronic Music that is currently very popular in European Clubs.

It's dancing style is very hectic and rapid, with a bit of hip hop influences, but mostly looking like epileptic seizures- which is in no way meant as a negative way, considering the strobe lights usually make you look like that anyway.

A supposedly "new" Parisian rave type dance where the dancer flails their arms like a humongous gaylord and pretty much jogs in place.

American ravers have been doing a better glowstick version of this for over 15 years.
American tourist: Look at the little toad-sucker! He's "tecktonik-ing"!

Faggy french-boy: 'Zis is the best dance ever invented, non?

American tourist: Non is right. (beats spazztic frenchie with a glowstick)

Tecktonik is a dance born in France on the 2000's. It is influenced by helicopter dance, robot dance, monkey dance (sorry for the monkeys I insulted with that.), twister dance. Tecktonik dancers usually look like a Power Rangers / Dragon Ball Z mashup. Tecktonik music is just gabber techno with a new name.

A new dance style/fashion emerging from France. Also known as 'TCK' 'Vertigo' 'Milky Way' but the proper name for the style is Electro-Dance.

The dance is almost a combination of Hip-Hop, Locking, Liquid & Club styles. Some of the basic moves are: figure-8, arm rolls, points & head wraps. The main music style is Electro-House

'Tecktonik' is a registered trademark. You can buy TCK shirts, skirts, singlets, armbands & even an energy drink featuring the Bird logo.

The fashion also usually consists of: tight jeans, a mohawk-style haircut and face paint.

The style is spreading quickly through Europe due to how easy it is to learn and the fun factor involved.

"Did you see that guy Jey-Jey? He is an awesome Tecktonik dancer"

"Do you like Tecktonik? Most guys look pretty gay doing it but I've seen a few that look cool & funky"

Literally, one who is profficient in the tecktonik, however, it is often used to mean anyone who dresses in a gangster-like manner, yet isn't as cool as they "talk" themselves up to be. Put simply, a try-hard hip-hop bitch.

This particularly applies to people in France, and the surrounding area.

Tecktonik was a dance and a fashion phenomenon in France during the years 2006-2008. Initially, "Tecktonik" referred to electro parties influenced by hardstyle and jumpstyle organized in the early 2000s by the Metropolis , a nightclub located in Rungis, in the Paris suburbs . The growing popularity of these parties generated an impressive fashion phenomenon for electro dance among teenagers throughout France and Eupore around 2006-2007.

Many products derived from these events are then created by designers and marketers including compilations, energy drinks, a clothing brand etc.

This lead to the rise of the "Tecktonik look", a mix between rave aesthetic and emo look : bright hair dye, skin-tight clothes, fluorescent/neon clothes metal/rock/ black and white emo patterns , punk Mohawk, tight-fittingsclot , etc.

As every trend and sudden youth phenomenon Tecktonik was criticized a lot by parents and adults and tecktonik dancers were quickly marginalized and made fun of. From 2008, the popularity of Tecktonik in France quickly waned. People started to see it as cringe and an era everyone rather forget about. It later became a joke among teens and young adults in the 2010's.

Now french millennials sometimes mention it with a smile and a hint of nostalgy, remembering their craft teenage years...
