Hey all, Im totally new to this site. I wanna learn so bad! heheh Ill check out that free site invent posted earlier on this thread. I know a lil about dancing, as in some rave moves. I learned some from my cousin and started to develop some of my own moves. I just gotta get the flow down. Im sure everyone knows what im talking about, you know when your breakin the moves out and goin good, then you start to think about it too much, like how you look to others an all, then you kinda mess up and have to stop :) I hope to learn much about popping and locking, that one kid in that video that does the robot was a great inspiration. Im sure everyone knows what video Im talking about but I just dont know his name. It was a competition or show, and this one kid in a orange sweater breaks it out. That was so tight. Ok, just wanted to introduce myself! :P

Look on Mr. Wiggles website or the Electric Boogaloos website...
Good videos would be Wigz' Tutting video, the floats and glides instructional, and also Poppin Pete's boogaloo basics 1&2 and Pop What You Got.
Any of those videos would be a great place to start.

hehe, don't worry about "thinking too much, messing up and stopping": that's almost exactly what Don Campbell did, and he ended up creating a whole different form of dance out of the moment when he would stop and think about what move he would do next (Locking).

Oh, and that "kid in the orange sweater" you're talking about: his name is Dave Bernal, but he goes by "Elsewhere". Go to detoursvideo.com to see a video of him, Midus, Kujo and Rawbzilla in action. The event you saw Elsewhere at was Kollaboration (www.kollaboration.org)--I work for that event.

good luck!

The feet moves suck?? Do you mean gliding/moonwalking? It's actually quite a simple step to do.

If you're going to learn how to moonwalk/glide, learn how to float first. You can look this up on wigz' hip hop site too, I think.

Floating (one direction) - It's all heel and toe movement. Stand with your feet at a 45 degree angle and a few inches apart... or stand normally. Bring up your left toe and your right heel, and move them to a side. Bring up your right toe and left heel, and move them over to the same side. Repeat, or add variety to it. But my description is pretty basic.

Gliding (one direction) - Again, heel and toe movement. Stand normally, and lift your left heel, so your toe is the only part touching the ground. Then, push off that toe, but keeping your right foot, or heel, sliding across the ground. Switch to your right toe, but sort of turn it so that the toe is pointing inwards, and then push off with your left foot/heel sliding across, and in front of you so as not to trip yourself and fall over... which would be a tragedy.

I start with my left foot normally because I'm a lefty, but if you're a bit uncomfortable with that, start with your other foot.

I'll pick up a little where Invent left off... Just because people are gonna be like "wut???"

Fresno - This isn't exactly a style, and is more like a basic movement for boogaloo and such. When you hit (pop) an arm or leg or both, you switch over to the other arm and hit that one. It's just switching between sides when hitting/popping.

Puppet - This requires two people, the puppet, and the puppet master (or whatever they're called!). It requires a lot of teamwork, effort, and a working routine to make this look good. Because of this, it's rare to be done in battle, but more for show. The puppet basically can do any style he wants, but under the master's hands. The master himself has to read the puppet's dance and use hand and arm gestures to imitate a real puppet on strings look.

Spiderman - Poppin' Pete created this style. Complex finger and hand movements across and around the chest which imitates spider movements, including crawling, sliding, jumping, and more. Get one of his instructional videos, it's almost guaranteed to have him doing some spiderman somewhere.

Robot - A style that's easy to learn, hard to look good with. Like waving, you need to have a lot of control to isolate and emphasize body movements. It's hard to describe in short, but there's a clip of fluid girl and loren robotting in: iamfrancis.com . . .

PUPPET style DOES NOT REQUIRE TWO PEOPLE!!!!

Do not let the Wiggles clip fool you!!! Puppet is a boogaloo style in which you dance with the style of a puppet...

Aye, really? OK! Something I can think of learning then hahaha

But I'd like a few more descriptions of a few more of those styles not touched up on yet, like toyman and scarecrow. I can't seem to find descriptions for those in wiggle's forums.

Puppet-
A style of boogaloo in which the dancer performs the boogaloo style with a "puppet" flavor. "Puppet" is meant to imitate the stylistic movements of a marionette puppet... this means puppet like hands, head, body breakdowns, looser movements. With puppet style, HITTING is not a necessity, as it is with many other popping styles.
To learn more about puppet, toyman, and scarecrow, check out Skeeter Rabbit's instructional video titled "The Cure". You can also find clips of these styles on SoulSeek.
