Here is a short tutorial video on popping. This is hitting (the FOUNDATION of popping) and the Fresno (a great exercise for hitting and staying on beat!!!)

Please let me know what you think.. I want to start making a line of tutorial videos for inexpensive.

hey invent

when you started off, did you have trouble with your legs too?
im just wondering, because of a choice between a) my arms, neck chest or stomach, or b) my legs, im better by far on my upper body.

oh and one more thing, if you tick and your arms remain tensed the whole way through instead of tensing and relaxing through a move, is it ticking? me and my friend are having a disagreement.

how exactly do you do animation? in words please. i understand the effect that you try to create, but i'm not sure how you do it.

thats probably a bit advanced for me. still,
"the pursuit of knowledge is a noble goal"

peace and chicken grease

First of all it's great that this forum has people who actually give their best to inform and "educate" those who are not capable of gaining such knowledge from other paths!
Second I would like to mention that living in a country (GREECE) in which there is no way that someone can learn the technics of popping it's very encouraging that you post those videos to help us(i mean the beginners :) ).
Last i want to ask Invent if he thinks that we(girls) are more difficult in learning the popping technics.

Sorry for any language mistakes! :)

I think when anyone starts off, they have trouble coordinating their arms and legs. It's just practice. You'll figure out your own way to get them on time with one another.

That's a good question on the ticking... and a very technical one.
There are those that say you have to be hitting in order to tick. That's how I like to differentiate when I'm DANCING. But the explanation I'm satisfied with, that will answer your question is the following:

What is the difference between strobing and ticking?
Ticking is the style. Strobing is a sub-style of ticking. Both can be done with and without hits (this without hits is crucial to your question...). The difference is, ticking, you are still dancing (you are focused on angles and movement), where as strobing you are MIMING things (as people say "everyday movements"... opening a soda can, combing your hair, walking a dog, whatever...).
I hope that answers your question. If you don't think it does, read it again, because it does, you just need to think about it ;)

Animation...
dimestopping
ticking
vibrating
speed changes

That should answer anll of your questions.

XXX1-

I know a good number of girls that are better than most guys. My girlfriend hits harder than 80% of the poppers I've seen.

It's not as difficult for girls, just keep working at it. It is not an easy dance to learn, and it will peobably take a good 2 or 3 months before you even have a good hit, because it is all about training your body to move and work in new ways.

Lol !! lol !!!
Well .. yeah I know man, I'm not the best in English compared to people who speak English almost their whole life cause Dutch IS my main language, BUT compared to people in my classes over here .. I'm the best in English, .. it's just because I lived in the Caribean :P, I think I can speak decent english !! but I don't live where you live soo that makes it hard for me to say all things correct .. anyway .. Invent .. Props for the tutorial again :D I always respect dancing videos that try to learn people something and that are free .. it's the way it should be, hopefully i'll hit as good as you one day heheh ..

I've been focusing more on hiphop freestyle and reggeaton bubbeling dancin, Sliding and some MJ moves too ..

YUP like you said in your video; most dancers like to do those MJ & Usher moves .. but it's really because it just looks good .. for instance, a guy who does all kinds of hard routines can look less "cool" then someone who does a good sidewalk .. or boxglide .. so you can't blame those people .. besides the way you dance is like pro, It takes way practice .. also for skilled people right ?? so normal people would not quicly get so good .. but they can learn couple glides and stuff ... be cool y'know .... :0

I still think MJ has a great style and can move good ... his slides are good you know, anyway ...

Peace, for more FREE videos go to streetwalkn.com
Thanks

I just wanted to thank you so much for your video clip, I can't wait to check out your others. I am teaching dance at a very urban HS and I am looking at ways to reach the kids and my skills in this area are limited but this video helps. I am going to try the tense and relax warm-up with them. Where did you learn? Do you know of any good role models in the hip-hop/ popping style that I could find some information about?
Thanks

Hey thought your video was tight. You mentioned something about possibly selling videos like that right? Well if you did that is a good idea. You are very good at pop lockin and make it look easy. It seems as if I can't see exactly what you are doing so well. You seem so far away.

I've been at it for 3 years...
Originaly... for like.. 3 days, I was taught by Legend... since then i've been on my own.

And you dont really need a song with a fat funk baseline..
You can get down to whatever moves you.
By thinking that you are simply limiting your own dancing.
