We may have tweaked our neck vertebrae at yoga class, but after one look at the Floorlords’ 31st Anniversary contestants and their gravity-defying moves, the physical dangers of downward dog suddenly seem quite inconsequential. On August 3–5, the legendary local crew’s stomach-churning showdown will have Boston’s best breakdancers competing for cash prizes and the illustrious honor that comes with being able to spin like a human dreidel using only one’s scalp muscles. The event will feature fresh beats from local DJs and even open workshops, where brave souls can try their own hands — or heads? — at breakdancing. You can find the full schedule at floorlords.com, but the weekend kicks off at Hibernian Hall (184 Dudley Street, Roxbury) on Friday at 7 p.m. The cover is $10 at the door.
