Good job for the funk look you were going for. I usually prefer to see more street popping and locking and just really technical hip hop movements but theses girls did a good job at making the chero just what you wanted it to be.

1) Good overall but the moves were a little repetive, and a little bit overly scandalous.
2) I wouldn't even consider this funk that is DEFENITLY jazz. I saw pirouettes in there. Maybe music acting (NOT song and dance!)
3) And thats lyical...or jazz. Yeah Jazz.
4) Modern.
5) This one is actually my favorite. It's still jazzy, but it's not scandalous. And thats my favorite song. Oh..wait I see a fouette.

You guys are really talented but please post on the right board!
WOW

Hey! I thought that all of you were great. You know what my dance teacher that I've had since I was four would always say before our recitals? Well, tell here it is: In the studio we are dancers. On stage we are performers. Performers are stars. Stars sparkle and shine. And the best way to sparkle and shine is to SMILE!!!!!!!
I always will remember her saying that. Whenever I'm on stage I remember being a tiny tiny girl and all of the dancers and I would shout out SMILE!!!! when our teacher would say it. Please tell this to your dance team because it hopefully will make them smile too.(:

you have very good choreography. just a tip though... your dancers need to learn to keep in time with eachother. the dance would be superb if that was touched up a bit. well done

My only comment to the first video was that it was more of a cheer leader type dance. Very Jazzy. Very straight arms and tight and snappy moves. It was really cute however! Just not what I classify hip-hop.
what can I say

I hate to break it to you but saying that your routine was jazz funk hip hop didn't make it go over any better! I won't totally rip you apart, but honey you and your girls were way off the mark.

I really don't want to hate, but if you are going to do it that do it right. Your group lacked all of the basic skill in hip hop and Jazz funk for that matter, there was no jazz funk in your routine, and some of the most played out hip hop moves, like that sad Harlem shake...ugh

keep practicing, try again, and make me eat my words...I dare you!

I liked the dance for the most part, but I dont think that it is appropriate at all to have the F word in the music.
hah

hah, i dont know where youre from or what you do, but the fact that you think you have the right to classify people's dances and tell them "what their style of dance is" is hilarious.

I'm going to guess that youre,
a. about 16/17
b. not from New York

I don't know how you DON'T classify that as jazz funk considering i've taken ALOT of classes in the past few years that have been called "jazz funk" and have basically been in this style. Why don't you go to BDC and take a class from Sheryl Murakami and tell her to her face that she isn't jazz funk. It's about what you make it, and the "sad excuse for a harlem shake?" The move is about 5 years old and in my dance its broken down into shoulder contractions, left and a right. If i wanted to harlem shake, it would have been in the dance. It's called an adaptation...

So keep practicing and make you eat your words? Good joke. Please do me a favor and post a video of your dance team! I'd like to see how "jazz funky" you are.

and to the commenter below...we're 20 years old...i think the "f word" is appropriate...

^ No offence, but how did you expect people to reply to this post? If you thought that you were only going to get "OMG it's wonderful!!!" kind of responses, how can you better your choreography? I don't mean to be rude but there's no need to get defensive :)

You're first routine isn't what I would classify jazz/funk. Maybe because I live in Australia, and our styles/definitions may differ, but that kind of looked like abit of everything :? Not that that is a bad thing -- it just wasn't jazz/junk to me.

and to the commenter below...we're 20 years old...i think the "f word" is appropriate...


I think what the poster was referring to was that not everyone in the audience is over 20 :)

oh i completely agree with you! I am ALL for constructive criticism! And by you saying, i dont consider it jazz funk i consider it a bit of everything, is fine by me...why does it matter what a dance is classified as?

I just got defensive because the girl who commented was extremely rude, and was innappropriately classifying my dance, when really, i never asked anyone to classify it at all...I put it up to see if people enjoyed it! The girl who commented was rude, obnoxious and plain out disrespectful. You can tell me you don't like the movements, or it needs to be sharper, or even, she thought it was boring...but by telling me "this isn't hip hop, you don't know what you're doing, its a sad excuse for dancing..." is not what these threads are for...

There are plenty of posts above hers that give constructive criticism, and comments that say, hey i don't really like your dance, but none of them were as RUDE and "know it all" as the previous one.

I usually could give a hoot about what people think, but when people blatently post claiming they know "what style of dance is what", it really pisses me off.

bring on the CONSTRUCTIVE criticism people...don't tell me you dont' like my dance because its not "hip hop" enough for you...grow up.

But thank you for letting me further explain my distraught...i love to get judged...but fairly.

Maybe it's just because I come from a really hardcore competitive background where I've been dealt really harsh criticism (not always constructive) a lot, but here's my two cents:

You're entitled this thread "my hiphop videos". ie, you're more or less claiming 'this is hiphop' and 'I know that hiphop is'. Every claim you make is entirely open to criticism, constructive or not. Changed your mind halfway through the thread? You should have done it before you chose the thread title. (harsh but true)

I'll agree that Nicole19 may have been extremely blunt, but rude? She's just giving her opinion, which you basically asked for when you posted this video up. Did she call you petty names? No. Did she swear at you? No. Therefore, not rude as she is merely stating her opinion (even though it differs from yours).

why does it matter what a dance is classified as?

Because dance classifications exist to differentiate the different dance forms from one another. These classifications have arisen from YEARS of historical, cultural and musical evolution, not to mention hard work from dance founders and teachers. It is generally regarded in the dance community - regardless of what form you're doing - that to call something which it's not is hugely disrespectful to all those people who worked so hard to make the classification known in the first place.

hiphop is only fairly new on the global stage, so I will use a more well-known example. Is a person in ballet shoes dancing to piano music a ballerina? Can they do a ballet dance without turnout, do a pirouette without correct retire and do a devloppe with a sickled ankle and expect to be taken seriously as a ballet dancer? No - because turnout, a held retire during a pirouette and eversion of the ankle are recognised 'elements' of the classical ballet dance form.

Hiphop may not be quite as regimented but in my opinion some things such as the 'down'/grounded stance (hard to explain aside from saying 'bent knees') are pretty integral to hiphop... they're not going to go anytime soon.

You can't be serious.

In my eyes, if you post up a thread saying 'look at my hiphop dance' and it's not straight hiphop, what do you think people are going to respond with? Maybe if you'd posted it on the jazz forum you may have missed out on the "um, I don't think that's hiphop" replies, but on here? Use your head!

Finally, this is an internet forum. Fair, no fair, blunt, constructive, you'll get all sorts of opinions here whether you like it or not. They're only "wrong" if they break our Terms of Service... and as a moderator I can assume you that no-one's done that in this thread yet.

Actually, if you read it it says my thread is 'CHECK OUT MY CHOREOGRAPHY...i actually don't even mention hip hop until a following post when I say, 'I consider this a combination of jazz/funk/hip hop' and yes this is hip hop forum, but my disclaimer should have negated the comments of (you don't know what youre talking about this isn't hip hop)

i COMPLETELY agree with you on terms of classifying dance. However, within jazz there is sexy jazz, theater jazz, jazz funk, lyrical jazz...so why in hip hop is it 'hip hop' or nothing. Why can't my dance be a combination of jazz/funk/hip hop as I classified it without people having a problem with it.

As you have constructively criticized my dances, you write EDUCATED explainations for what you are saying and why you feel the way that you do. AND, I never claimed to KNOW hip hop, or be straight hip hop, i posted it SAYING this is a COMBINATION of different styles of dance. So when people angrily, bluntly, and yes rudely (i feel) replying to a post by saying this is not hip hop...they're making themselves look more stupid by not reading where i wrote, i don't claim this to be straight hip hop.

Thank you for helping me to understand where these people are comming from, thank you for being educated and having intricate answers to the dance instead of, (you lack basic skills) and thank you for clearing up a conversation that HOPEFULLY won't have to happen again.

I can post where I want, and because i considered this dance even a smidgen of hip hop, im going to post it on a board to get feedback. It is posted on the jazz board as well, and I've gotten feedback there as well too. Except NOW i realize that the hip hop community is SO TOUCHY about what they're classification is, I probably WON'T post on here anymore considering even with a disclaimer, they still can't resist the urge to say, 'this is not real hip hop'.
