It is also a great way to meet new people and socialize. Whether you’re looking for a stress-reliever or want to improve your physical health, it’s never too late to start dancing.
Popping is a street dance that originated in Fresno, California, during the late 1960s and 1970s. It is characterized by sudden tensing and relaxing of the muscles (called hitting) to the rhythm of beats in music. Closely related illusionary dance styles and techniques such as the robot, waving and tutting are often integrated into popping to create a more varied performance. However, the dance is distinct from breaking and locking, with which it is often confused. A popping dancer is commonly referred to as a “popper.”
The Recording Academy’s approach to dance/electronic music has long been a mixed bag, with the genre’s many extremely different sounds and styles being crammed into two categories for best song and album.

It’s a move that fans of every genre of electronic music can celebrate.
