Ma Dancing in complete defiance, still rocking away. Now learning new skills and getting ready for 2019 with hope and determination to make a difference and put fun in funk dance which is interactive with who ever is up for a dance. Or dance solo and try out new ideas.
No stranger to hard training, bagwork & displaying the art of chain-punching & footwork in action and in dancing. Using old Poplocking moves and learning tap and even Hip Hop via Urban Strides there may be many dance videos to come yet, from one of Bognor Dancers who is trying to keep the dream alive. Shot in location of Hotham Park in Bognor Regis, West Sussex you can find over 180 videos going back for about six years.
Don’t touch me Buster Poplock has currently over 17,000 views. Not bad for a solo artists using dance moves that date back to 1984.
2700 visitors have so far clicked this end of an event where the ‘Dancing Doorman’ throws a few moves.
93,000 people have clicked on Kill Chill 2018. Even weather will not stop the Bognor Dancer Popping and Locking what ever the weather, keep on dancing to keep the dream alive. Dancing around Bognor Regis and many other places is what keeps the Bognor Dancer fit and healthy. Whatever the weather and what ever obstacles in the path of this UNSTOPPABLE Ma Dance force of fun & merry mayhem.
Near the end of 2018, so I am carrying on and pushing for the numbers, also going to plan as January to April 2019 is going to be very busy and then all hell will break lose as certain negative people are (apparently) going to have their revenge. Oh well, never mind, eh!! April 2019 seems so far away. Thanks to N for the advice and help, all systems are go here, every day new ideas and advances. Working on everything especially endurance, leg stretches and footwork. Wishing you all the best for Xmas and 2019…
Decided to dance 6 clips with some ideas, this is 3 of the clips and 1 didn’t come out. That is pretty good really, some days it is hard to get every shot right. Some of the moves I was inspired by my time at Urbanstrides dot com and some via my current learning of tap dance. I used some of my old 84 moves, and added some footwork to spice it up a bit. This was more of a test to mix some moves up, worked better than I thought, something to go home and practice for the next video AB 6. Didn’t get a lot of time to train as hard as I want as busy with work but, I decided to put it all in the pot and try a few things out. I hope to make it in April 2019 to the next 3 day Urban Strides event Hip Hop. With all this extra training I hope to benchmark better in my dancing efforts and see my new – old friends up there.
Alternative power problem in a Robotic dance, Robotic Poplock uses his alternative power supply. Problem solved or is it?
The use of the ‘Alternative Power’ is used to give the video a bit of reality to the Robot and the video story board reflects this quite well, the theme is well implemented in this video.
You’ll find this is a great example of adding pops and locks to a robot dance.
Using popping moves and some old poplock moves to produce an alternative dance routine. Power fully restored.
And then the unthinkable happens.
Look on YouTube for a channel called Poplock Paul.
That is Alternative Power in Afterburn 3. And then there is now a fourth video called ‘Afterburn 4 The Future’. The idea was, what if Mad Max was to meet Super Mario we wonder and so we made that the main theme for this 4th YouTube video in the Afterburn series. This was a special video with a shout out to Micky & Christina, Jason Sanger as Super Mario and Greg as well, Greg. And of course it stars Poplock Paul as Mad Max. There is some dancing and what looks like punching, some really fast and a few rapid punching several times in between moves and beat. ‘The Future’ in our not so distant possible apocolyptical future, with a mix of Mad Max & Super Mario could be an interesting action film and video game mix.
Two videos each with a bit of grapics and story boarded on films and a game, mixed with the latest dance moves and some martial art counter strikes, what more could you want I ask?
I tend to prefer this days to try and label my YouTube videos into mini series, after the 3 day dance event in High Wycombe via Urban Strides I started an Afterburn mini series. This started about Oct 27th and should continue as far up to Xmas as I can go. i learned a lot during those 3 days and found myself short on endurance which was also a problem when I was boxing 6th Oct so now I’m trying to train not just for technique but endurance as that seems to be the main problem.
I will update this page with regular updates & videos with Urban Strides material I was taught and picked up as I aim to be at the April 2019 Hip Hop Dont Stop event – I might refer to this project & series of videos under Urban Strides for now, I’m putting into practice as what I learned. Sometimes it is best to meet other artists and through Urban Strides certainly provides this, which is why I’m hoping & aiming to go back in April 2019 better condition and shape. Stretching & Endurance are 2 things I am going to have to improve upon, from my notes day 2 I struggled. More training, I’m going to document my improvements through this blog, my videos and a dance website I have created that shall be a reference for future development.
At the moment April 2019 seems far away, and the period after does not look good, but still going to try and be there as it will be a good benchmark to see how much I can improve. 6 months seems like a life time, for now I’ll be trying to end 2018 with this Afterburn Mini Series of videos and posts. I’ll be adding static & reference pages and info to that website as time goes by as a series of updates, main mission will be to update myself on MA & improve my dancing as well in stretches and endurance. Bye for now, feel free to read on and you can contact me via FaceBook, YouTube & Twitter under my stage name of Poplock Paul.
