Imi place foarte mult sa discut despre dansuri si poate sunteti si voi interesati...sau o sa vi se trezeasca interesul dupa urmatoarele lucruri ... si m-am gandit ca ar fi interesant sa pornim de la istoria dansurilor.Orice gen de dans cunoaste-ti si va pasioneaza cautati ceva legat despre istoria acelui stil de dans si postati-l ... asa poate o sa putem forma cat mai repede trupa de dans a scolii ...ce ne-am mai putea distraaaa ... am sa incep eu cu Lockin' :

The beginning of Locking can be traced to one man, Don Campbell. In the late 1960s he put together several fad dances adding moves of his own (notably the "Lock") when performing. The original lock was created by accident: Don Campbell couldn't do a move called the 'Robot Shuffle' and stopped at a particular point. He wasn't able to perform it fluently, for he couldn't remember which step to take next. (Even the acting towards the audience was spontaneous: when people started laughing at Don because of his unfamiliar moves, he responded by pointing at them.) These halts soon became popular as Don added them into his performances. The resulting dance was called Campbellocking, which was later shortened to Locking. In the early 1970s this set off a movement of Locking dance groups, notably Campbell's group The Lockers. Another locker called Greggery 'Campbell Jr.' Pope and others set the foundation for locking dance and clothes style.

Clothes style can consist of loud striped socks, pegged pants that stopped at the knees, bright colorful satin shirts with big collars, big colorful bow ties, gigantic Apple Boy hats, and white gloves.

Later locking became part of the growing hip hop dance culture , and has influenced styles such as popping, Bboying and liquiding.Locking is still quite popular and many current artists such as Beyoncé Knowles, BoA, Show Luo feature dance moves derived from Locking steps in their music videos.

So...keep it funky!!!

As vrea sa va spun cate ceva si despre Poppin' ...pentru ca este un stil de dans apropiat Lockin'-ului si de asemenea imi place foarte mult :

In the 1970s, the pioneer popping group the Electric Boogaloos (earlier known as the Electronic Boogaloo Lockers) greatly contributed to the spread of popping, partly because of their appearance on the television program Soul Train.Their founder Sam Solomon (a.k.a. Boogaloo Sam) created a set of movements that evolved into the styles known today as popping and boogaloo after being inspired by one of the pioneer locking groups known as The Lockers as well as a fad dance popular in the 1960s known as the jerk.While dancing, Sam would say the word "pop" every time he flexed his muscles, eventually leading to the dance being called popping.
"While Sam was creating popping and boogaloo, others were creating and practicing unique styles of their own. Back in the day many different areas in the west coast were known for their own distinct styles, each with their own rich history behind them. Some of these areas included Oakland, Sacramento and San Francisco"
—The Electric Boogaloos

The Electric Boogaloos encourage the term Funk styles to identify the dance moves that came out of the west coast during the funk era. The primary funk styles are popping, electric boogaloo, and locking. The funk styles were integrated into hip hop dance once the culture reached the west coast of the United States. They are now included in several hip hop dance competitions. Some state that popping itself existed in some forms in the late 1960s in Oakland, California before the Electric Boogaloos were formed and that the style cannot be traced to a specific person or group. This is generally accepted regarding the various related styles such as animation, (ro)botting, and strobing, which the Electric Boogaloos themselves acknowledge.

Let's learn something about breakdance :

Clive Campbell, aka Kool DJ Herc and the father of hip-hop, came to New York from Jamaica in 1967. Toting the seeds of reggae from his homeland, he is credited with being the first DJ to use two turntables and identical copies of the same record to create his jams. But it was his extension of the breaks in these songs - the musical section where the percussive beats were most aggressive - that allowed him to create and name a culture of break boys and break girls who laid it down when the breaks came up. Briefly termed b-boys and b-girls, these dancers founded breakdancing, which is now a cornerstone of hip-hop dance.

True revolutionaries in their own right, the b-boys and b-girls of the east coast helped lay the groundwork for hip-hop as a formidable dance force. Top rockin’ was one of their designs, marked by moves performed upright. Necessity became the mother of invention and with more competitive dance wars floor rocking was created. Earth-bound freezes and spins found their footing in this form of expression. Even the physical transition between top rockin’ and floor rocking – the drop - became an important repertoire embellishment, with the smoothest swipes and dips garnering the most props. Flashier moves developed including the windmill and flare which fall under the umbrella term, power moves. Perfecting these moves became the focus of the most skilled breakdancers.

New York gave birth to another hip-hop dance form, one arguably created by b-boys, Rubber Band and Apache. Brooklyn uprocking, simply known as uprocking, is considered to be the inspiration for top rockin’. It is an overtly competitive style of dance where individuals or lines of dancers, also known as Apache Lines, display their arsenal of superior moves in a battle for badness in the best way. Jerking, an abrupt yet rhythmic motion, became the trademark of this dance form which is also characterized by quick moves and humorous retaliations. Many dancing teams, such as the Rock Steady Crew and Dynamic Rockers, reached notoriety in this form.

Krumping and Clowning :

This controversy is evidence of the current creativity swelling around hip-hop dance. Platforms like krumping and clowning provide stages for new school hip-hop. Expressing darker emotions like angst and aggression, krumping, not to be confused with krunking, is a confrontational form of expression utilizing dramatic and exaggerated moves. Dances falling into this category may appear violent, but in reality are a positive release of a negative force. Clowning is a closely related dance form with marked differences; while current versions may be following the more aggressive trend of krumping, clowning is essentially characterized by dissing, joking and jeers.

Hip-Hop dance history


Hip-hop dance refers to social or choreographed dance styles primarily danced to hip-hop music or that have evolved as part of hip-hop culture. This includes a wide range of styles notably breaking, locking, and popping which were developed in the 1970s by Black and Latino Americans. What separates hip-hop dance from other forms of dance is that it is often freestyle (improvizational) in nature and hip-hop dancers frequently engage in battles—formal or informal one-on-one dance competitions. Informal freestyle sessions and battles are usually performed in a cipher, a circular dance space that forms naturally once the dancing begins. These three elements—freestyling, battles, and ciphers—are key components of hip-hop dance.

More than 30 years old, hip-hop dance became widely known after the first professional breaking, locking, and popping crews formed in the 1970s. The most influential groups include the Rock Steady Crew, The Lockers, and the Electric Boogaloos who are responsible for the spread of breaking, locking, and popping respectively. Parallel with the evolution of hip-hop music, hip-hop dancing evolved from breaking and the funk styles into different forms. Moves such as the running man and the cabbage patch hit the mainstream and became fad dances. The dance industry in particular responded with studio/commercial hip-hop, sometimes called new style or L.A. style, and jazz funk. These styles were developed by technically trained dancers who wanted to create choreography to hip-hop music and to the hip-hop dances they saw being performed on the street. Due to this development, hip-hop dance is now practiced at both studios and outside spaces.

Internationally, hip-hop dance has had a particularly strong influence in France and South Korea. France is the birthplace of Tecktonik, a new style of house dance from Paris that borrows heavily from popping and breaking. France is also the home of Juste Debout, an international hip-hop dance competition. South Korea is home to the international breaking competition R16 which is sponsored by the government and broadcast every year live in primetime on Korean television. The country consistently produces such skillful b-boys that the South Korean government has designated the Gamblerz and Rivers b-boy crews official ambassadors of Korean culture.

To some, hip-hop dance may only be a form of entertainment or a hobby. To others it has become a lifestyle: a way to be active in physical fitness or competitive dance and a way to make a living by dancing professionally.
