I had to see it to believe it. Loren you know you dont know enough about chain reaction style to teach it thats just wrong, to mix those two styles is so wrong to they are two completely different forms of locking and now your students are gonna get the idea that they are to be mixedwhen they are not. Thats funked up! :(
Sorry to be the bubble popper but I thought you were better than that and that you respected dancers creativity more.

Andy, its good to hear from you brother, even if the circumstances are "not cool".

Had you read my posting properly you would have seen that I taught an hour of funk fundamentals (meaning, i taught excercises that explored various funk rhythms) and hatha yoga/strenth training excercises. Never did I teach the "Chain Reaction" style. Again, if you had read clearly, I merely mentioned the Guzmans as my teachers. My teaching format has been derived from my many years of dance training. Training that I have received from various teachers in various forms of dance.

The training I received from the brothers was extremely helpful, and they get my respect, but if you think that they have been my only influences, you are sadly mistaken. I just got back from a festival where I trained with the Boogaloos and Don Campbell himself.

I will avidly claim to still be a novice at these street styles, but my intention in teaching is to spread my love of these dance forms and keep the funk alive.

I would suggest not to get too caught up in lables and names and merely dance. Still know the history, but spread that love, not the hate.



Tip says hi.
