Event Details

Popping 101!  Fundamentals of popping!!!   

Almost all styles of dance from ballet to belly dance use isolations extensively. Popping is based on the technique of quickly contracting and relaxing muscles to cause a jerk in the dancer’s body, referred to as a pop or a hit. In this workshop, MonTahje will cover the history and origins of popping, and break down how to incorporate muscle isolation, coordination, slides, position, freezing, waving and more into your dance routine! This workshop is suitable for all level dancers, in all styles of dance! Whether you're into hip hop or belly dance, you will walk away with some tools to add to your dance repertoire!

 

$25 in advance $30 at the door!

 

More about Popping:

Popping is also used as an umbrella term to refer to a group of closely related illusionary dance styles and techniques that are often integrated with popping to create a more varied performance, such as the robot, waving and tutting. However, it is distinct from locking, with which popping is often confused. A popping dancer is commonly referred to as a popper.

It is often performed in battles, where participants try to outperform each other in front of a crowd, giving room for improvisation and freestyle moves that are seldom seen in shows and performances, such as interaction with other dancers and spectators.
