This was one of several clips taken a few minutes apart as I did my
practice in between to see if it works doing most or all videos in one
day. As you can see I had to do a little starting combo moves to get
clip in time with music and video as I usually overlay the soundtrack
over the video if the sound is compromised by wind or other noise or
drowns out actually music from camera. In the middle I used Points,
Dimestops & some Liquid Waves. One thing is that with this Pat &
Point Honeybar Mini Series each clip gets better with time and
practice. That is the fun of Hip Hop Dancing.
Pat Point V206
In this second ‘Pat Point Hip Hop Dance’ being 2 of 5 in a ‘Mini Series
Honeybar V206’ I was able to better my moves over the 1st attempt. Pat
& Point for feet and hands, 2 different styles in their own right
but I have fused them together to see how I progress with this dance
experiment. From the first to this second video I seem to have made this
routine or style more fluent, it will be interesting to see how I
progress. I will be creating pages and my plan is to add this to my
Poplockwiki dot com website with more details how and why I created this
little mini series I call ‘Honeybar’ which is the name of the music
piece I used in this video.
Pat Point V205
This Pat Point Hip Hop Dance choreography is 1 Of 5 in a Mini Series
Honeybar, and is known to many as V205. This is an intro video Using Pat
(tern) footwork and a bit of Vepoint as I work with the 2 styles in
week 10 of this years training. I may throw a few other styles in to the
mix and see what happens. Today I’ll be reviewing the other footage
again and uploading those when I can, at the end of the day I want to
complete a ‘Shout-out’ video for a friend I know ‘Tesla MC’ who is a
talented rapper. I will also be creating an end of week 10 video for my
next ‘MA-Dance’ mini series which I will also be working on over the
next few days. Please enjoy.
Based on Old Style Locking Action which we used in Portsmouth in the 84 to 86 Breakdance & Bodypopping age or era, we created these 2 short dance videos to share so new and old dancers can learn an easy but funky basic and advanced way to share the fun with. This is one of several routines we will be releasing over the next few weeks, anyone can take from these two short videos.
Basic Hip Hop Dance Vepoint
As usual the video was shot in the location of Hotham Park in Bognor Regis, West Sussex, UK. I was also inspired by Gingers Waacking having attended a 3 day course event last October where Ginger was 1 of 9 teachers that taught us, Ginger was awesome. The course was a 3 day camp called ‘Hip Hop Dont Stop’ by Urban Strides, to which I am going to again this coming April, all being well.
Advanced Hip Hop Dance Vepoint Tutorial
Advanced Hip Hop Dance Vepoint Tutorial, for reference in 2019. Adding in more footwork, hand moves and the Fresno. Fresno popping & Vepoint locking. This could constitute a Poplock style, although you could say it is 33.3% Locking, 33.3% Popping and 33.3% Poplock !!
Eye Of The Tiger Dance Below
Starting with some videos of my bag punching and chaining of Boxing & Martial Art counter techniques. Some old and new dance moves, and a few short routines. A video clip I used was shot in 2010 and thanks to my training & dancing friends. ‘Eye of the Tiger’ also included. Shot in location Hotham Park in BR, Bognor Regis, West Sussex in the UK.
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 have started a webpage to house my Urban Strides relevant dance journey as I learn from their Instructors and merge it with my own style. http://dance.bognor259.com/
I’m also part of the Urban Strides family and hope to go back in April 2019 to do a follow up & meet my new friends there…
I attended a 3 day dance course ‘Hip Hop Dont Stop’ via UrbanStrides dot Com in High Wycombe about 30 miles from London.
You can see a video where we danced at the end of the day, I belive day 2 and I had to improvise the 2nd part of the dance but this was allowed as I had back & knee injuries from my Security Work that interferred with my ability to get down and do some break dancing moves.
My experience with Urban Strides was a good one, it was hard but worth going, I learned a lot and got to meet and learn from many Artists so by the end of the day there was no excuse to not dance, thats why we are there. I felt like we as individual dancers were pushing ourselves and whilst we are expected or obliged to be at each class and the end session, I didn’t feel pushed or whipped but the dancer inside all of us makes us want to achieve and we worked as a group and some of the members with experience would help us on some things like a step we’d missed or just needing a bit of info like we could improvise rather than not dance, etc.
So after the event I made a routine in the following video to show that I indeed assimilated the new dance moves, grooves & ideas.
I thoroughly recommend going to Urban Strides dot com as it rocks…
