Hip-Hop- not just dance movements

I have always understood hip-hop as a culture,not just a dance form. In fact I am starting to wonder if you can call hip-hop dance hip-hop without the music. Anyway there is a really good book written by someone that grew up when all this hip-hop stuff was developing.He also studies and writes about it as his profession. The book is not specifically about dance but it covers the music,clothes, movies and other significant events that influence culture. Its by Nelson George and it's called "Buppies,B-boys, Baps and Bohos: Notes on Post-Soul Black Culture". Even though it is not specifically about dance, it's important to understand the context of the era.

Whats crackin people,

As you can tell I love dancing. Any style of dance and yes even ballet. Bet you didn’t know that I took ballet too. But my favorite dance style is Funk Style hip hop dance. I don’t know there’s just something about it that makes me get goose bumps when I see funk style dancers “get off”. Before I moved to LA from Flint Mi, I thought I had been doing Funk Style/Poppin dance. Even worse I was calling it by the wrong name,”Poplocking”(It’s either poppin or locking never both). It wasn’t until I moved to LA that I found that I was doing it all wrong. I discovered that its called Funk Style and in funk style there are many different techniques. I found out that Popping Taco was the man who taught Michael Jackson everything he knows. At first I didn’t believe it. After doing major research I found it to be true Popping Taco was the man behind the infamous MJ. I had to find out more about Poppin Taco and that’s when my whole world changed. I discovered the “Electric Boogaloos”-the originators of this Style of dance. From there I went into training. I found out that Taco was teaching at local dance studio at the time and I knew I had to go take it. So I did and it was amazing! I learned so much from just that one class. From there I went on to take other classes from teachers like Suga pop and poppin Pete just to name a few(members of the Electric Boogaloos). So I thought that I would give you a little History lesson on poppin so that you won’t be like me lost in the dark and calling it “poplocking”.
