Move to the beat by quickly contracting and relaxing your muscles. Put together a sequence of moves to really wow the crowd.
What’s in it for your child?
- Body popping is cool and social — it’s a great skill to have and share
- Body popping teaches kids agility and confidence, and helps them feel comfortable in their own bodies
- Popping: mainly using the upper body, quickly contract and relax the muscles to cause a jerk
- Hitting: contract and relax the muscles as with popping, but this time use the upper and lower body at the same time
- Banging: this is a more intense version of hitting
- Vibrating hits/trembling: piece together a sequence of quivering hits and perform it with real intensity
- Dimestopping: stop all body movement without even a shadow of a jerk — tricky and impressive
- Strobing: a rapid sequence of dimestopping
- Ticking: a rapid sequence of hitting or popping
- Airposing: with a relaxed body, bounce or sink to the beat of the music and pose on every beat
- Angles: this comes with a bit more experience — once your child develops a heightened awareness and control of their body, they can start to create sequences of linear forms and patterns using their arms, legs and torso
