Dancer Poplock Quotes Today Is The First Day Of The Rest Of My Life

Recently I started a ’28 Poplock Days Later’ video series on Youtube, here I share 3 of them from day 7, day 14 and day 21 – all a week apart.

I’m filming the 28th Day video & you can find it on my Youtube channel

It should be up on Friday the 12th May if the Internet does not crash !!

Today with 4 days to go I wonder have I done all I can to be as prepared as possible, I’m pretty sure I have, in this 28 day time period I have been practicing for a full on dance weekend.

My mind is focused on one objective now, using the last few days and hours to brush up on the moves and getting a good amount of practice and rest so my own performance will be as good as I can get it on the weekend, currently I’m doing quite well so I think it will be a swell time and yesterday does not matter really. I have practiced as best as I can and today is the first day of the rest of my life, I have no regrets only a willingness to get stuck in…

Day 7 video when I started the 28 Days Later series…

Day zero is Saturday the 13th of May, an event ‘Rox Around The Park’ is going to take place in Hotham Park, Bognor Regis in West Sussex.

Starting in the morning and with 3 parades and many dancers attending, it promises to be a great day ending I believe about 6pm, so I guess a 7 or 8 hour day but one I think the expected 3,000 crowd will enjoy.

Based on the years gone by the Rox has successfully thrown a lot of these events for the public and is a great chance for entertainers to display their music and dances to the public. There will also be some stalls, I often get to meet many old faces and find a new act every year, I often stay most of the Saturday and on the main weekend the Sunday.

Day 14 video, trying to show new moves can be learned in 21 to 28 days…

I am aiming to learn, practice and incorporate new combo moves and styles to my street dancing abilities.

And on the 21st day I have started to become fluent in Boogaloo, Tuts (extended angles) and Electro Rock as you can see in this video.

And now all that remains is the 4th video which I shall be releasing on Friday the 12th of May, I am probably going to call it something like ’28th Day Later’ and whilst I hope to take as many videos and pictures of the event on 13th May should be an end of the ‘LATER’ series.

I’m actually considering doing a 2nd ’28 Days Later’ project but might do it in hours, so expect a ’28 Hours Poplocking Later’ video because I still want to push for more development of my dance style. It would be interesting to see how far I can take it creating new shapes and will probably use the 12th and 13th May as a reference for further videos.

Please share my post and videos, it helps me keep doing this whilst I have support, knowing that many people like and comment to me when I am seen. In fact try to come down to Hotham Park this Saturday the 13th May as I think you’ll enjoy the show. Feel free to say ‘Hi’ as I’ll be around most of the day, filming or dancing myself…

Poplock Lushers Poem Jan 2017 Update

I decided to start with a poem I always wanted to finish, it may well serve as part of my reason for reaching out this year in search of adventure…

To date, the short-ish version is thus…

In Lush did Poplock build a moment state,

Laying bare the dance soul a risky fate,

Encompassing any where an area of open ground,

Moving and throwing shapes to musical sound,

In this house of pleasure movable place to place,

sharing a muse dream form for mortal grace…

Summary, and so I present my recent poem which for years has been loosely bouncing around my skull and now in the 11th year of the web dance project I present to you as a reference and what I am trying to achieve. In fact one could argue that this is as much a basis for my life style as well as my objective. I am living the dream.

Keep the dream alive, keep on dancing…

Popping and locking every day…

If I brighten up one persons day then the whole way has been worth while, interacting with other dancers of all types with a common goal of entertaining others is part of it but, to get in to the soul of dance and funky moves for personal experience, helping others reach the moment of bliss is surely a noble good act ?

I believe it is, I feel change is going to happen in 2017 and 2018 but this is what has kept me going through time. 1984 learning street dance styles on the streets of Portsmouth and now I’m here these last 10 summers 2007 till 2016 have been a learning curve, shaping me up for this time.

Although I will be moving forward as before I will be looking at adding and modifying my skills to presenting what I do with more boom or effect.

Looking forward to dancing with you all soon !!
