Pop dance is a style of dancing based on fast contracting and relaxing of muscle groups. It can be a fun and challenging dance to learn.
It is usually paired with other styles of street dance to create a more complex performance. It is a type of funk dance that originated in Fresno, CA during the 1970s.
Popping was first introduced into the national consciousness by a series of mid-1980s breakdancing movies such as Breakin’ and Breakin 2: Electric Boogaloo. In these films popping and its related styles were put under the breakdance label causing a lot of confusion in the public.
Today popping is still a popular dance and has a large following around the world. It is one of the most hype genres and is not going to die out anytime soon with legends such as Mr. Wiggles and Poppin’ Pete still proving this dance will never go out of style!
Poppers are also known to combine many different musical genres into their routines. This can include funk and disco music, as well as more current electronic dance music such as Dubstep.
The music can range from 90-120 beats per minute and is in a 4/4 time signature. It is a fast and exciting dance that can be enjoyed by anyone!
It is a fun and unique way to express yourself while dancing. It can be performed in any situation and with any style of music.
Currently, it is common to see popping danced to a variety of music styles including funk, disco, electro and modern hip hop. It is also common for poppers to mix a number of illusory dance techniques into their routines that are not seen outside of the popping context.
