POPPING DANCE ACADEMY POPPING Hitting / Popping Hitting is the heart beat of the dance. You use each hit to pronounce the beat of the song. Hitting also is a key part of showing control and putting an end point of your movement or isolation. You can hit any part of your body that can you tense and relax. The forearm hits is the most use of all hitting mostly due to your arm is what you use for waving and all movement.  Hypno’s dance story Now that you understand the idea of the core 4 technique so lets talk a bit about popping. I would like to share with you my story on how I learn the technique call popping / hitting. When I 1st started dancing I was very into waving and didn't pay to much attention to popping at all. Not until I met “ Many Style “ aka “ I AM MANY “ . He showed me the basic clicks foundation and also simple stops that put a bit more flavor into the dance. Later I met his teacher  “ Pop Master JC “ then JC talk to me about the important of technique and then he talked of hitting and power hitting.  Back in my learning days in Brooklyn , a lot of people was using their shoulder to pop maybe because a lot of people were mixing brookup ( reggae dance ) and popping. So as a young kid learning I was also using a lot of shoulder to pop. After learning the master list of technique from JC ( I think his list was around 20 and up different techniques ) I started to work on just one thing at a time and really starting to look at if am I popping right .  It was an event call Back to Mecca in the Bronx . That is when I saw popping pete and the electric boogaloo there he talked about relaxing and contracting each muscle group to create the hit . Hitting in different level and using it to control your time and pace of the dance.  Then I started to seek out more on hitting and how I can get better at it. I was very excited to be able to watched some old VHS tutorial of Popping Pete and Mr Wiggle. ( back then you have to go to hip hop shop to get these VHS so they might not have them all the time)  As time goes on and I started to understand the foundation of hitting and using “ pop master JC “ training ideas. I started putting the technique into use . At that time I was very into Animation style and that was my main style at that time. Having a good technique of hitting really helps with stops and speed control of the dance. That is my little story on how I 1st learn the basic idea of hitting / popping. Most or all my learning of the dance comes with a story because no one will just openly teach you some thing. Everything have to be seek out or earned.
