Open Level Popping

Popping is associated with the dance forms of the Robot, Waving, Tutting, Strutting, and Boogaloo. Popping utilizes isolation of the body in combination with controlled flexion of muscles to create fluid, angular, and animated movement. However, Popping is distinct from Breaking and Locking, with which it is often confused. Popping originated in Fresno, California in the 1970s with notable icons such as Boogaloo Sam, Poppin’ Pete, Skeeter Rabbit, and the Electric Boogaloos. Much of popping techniques are used in today’s popular choreography.

A great place to start if you're interested in a new dance style or have never taken dance classes before. You will be taken through the basic elements of dance, step by step, so you will have a better understanding of the movement and eventually be ready for the next level of classes. This may include rhythm, counting, body isolations, drills, placement, repetition of movements, applying foundational knowledge into dance combinations & common vocabulary.

Open Level: All Levels are welcome to participate in class: Beginning, Beg/Int, Intermediate, Int/Adv, and Advanced
