Awaken to Create – v234 M6

The Awakening Experimental Video Xmas 2019 v234 was created and produced to try out a left scrolling back screen. I was hoping to add in a couple of other green screen effects but I’ll leave that for later.

Awaken To Create – v234 M6

I used the YouTube Royalty Free track ‘The Awakening’ in this with an old rap I made years ago. I shot the 2 videos with a graffiti background with the word CREATE I believe was created by a group called ‘CREATE’ near ‘Hotham Park’ in the under ground tunnel. Not entirely happy with this video but it is the first time I believe I have used this format, I might try a anime background with sprites next time. I hope you like the 2 tracks and different ideas.

What will you create today and tomorrow ?

I know I will be creating more ideas & shapes in the future, my past is my credentials as a suvivor & achiever as I have had to work through many problems that we encounter in life. Some people moan but I see it as an adventure and nothing worth gaining comes without pain, a price in life is via pain & suffering to achieve certain things in life I guess.

I am here to entertain you, help you entertain in any way I can and the fact that I can blog & film is just awesome. Are you not enterained ?

Currently at the moment I am creating content for project2020 and concentrating on ‘LIVE STREAM ENTERTAINMENT NETWORK’ and I have written for 3 of the Dejays Ryan, Les & Shaun.

I use that link as a click through on PHP websites, it seems to only act as a link on this blog which is a pity because I was hoping to put it in the sidebars as a widget, anyway that link will lead you to the ‘LIVE STREAM’ website but also through the next site ‘PROJECT2020’ you can find out more about the 2 Dejays Ryan, Les & Shaun.

I will be creating more ideas & shapes in the future, in the dance and in the videos & websites. So join me as I dance my way through life, maybe you can see the plan ahead and what we need to do to achieve again & again. So thanks for reading and hope you stay with us because the fun has only just begun, until we meet or until the next post stay safe & best regards !!

A New Hope – V232 M4

Xmas 2019 with New Dance Music in a Rehearsal Video Shoot in v232 filming session in Hotham Park, Bognor Regis for Xmas 2019.

I’m using YouTube Royalty Free music. First rehearsal and hope to add more festive music and items to future videos. Not sure who added the xmas tinsil and card around the tree but not going to check, maybe some kid thinks Santa Claus lives up the tree !!

I used Popping, Locking & Rocking from mostly what I learned way back in 1984 & also via Urban Strides in High Wycombe, which I have a attended a few times in 3 day camps and a 5 day summer Camp since in 2018 & 2019. Wishing all of you a festive season indeed and hoping to see my dancing friends again soon.

As Bognor Dancer I am waiting for other members to hoof their way through one of our end of 2019 videos as a practice moves to make a great Xmas and New Year video. Apart from a few warm up in the few days before doing this video I filmed this and just went with the music with a few basic styles, something to work on in the last days of 2019 as I seek to create a handful of videos towards entering 2020 with peak dance skills, etc.

In this video I filmed and just went with the music with a few basic styles, a bit of uprock in a mix of two & three steps. A bit of popping & a locked pose before Street Tap. All right beside my friend the Mad Hatter, they try to stamp out Xmas and yet they fail.

A bit of arm locking & pointing, a bit of Robot-Popping or Bottin whilst some dog passes by looking for his bone. A couple of pictures from 2007 when I started this Web Dance Project & later 2008 when I started in Littlehampton as well as Bognor Regis Events & Parades. I think I am being followed, filmed in Hotham Park in Bognor Regis.

It takes greater effort to film in a park with all the distractions than in ones own room. This is one way a person can get extra practise between dancing solo with no distraction or pressure and then in a park one dances differently and is concious of watching eyes but, one gets used to that and pushes through and is a step closer to dancing under more pressure and scrutiny from people who may not know or appreciate the dance you are performing. Even better when there is no sound except in my head phones. So have fun, thanks for reading and best regards for now.

Dejay Shaun Pearcey M3

Over the years I have had many good events when Shaun has been the Dejay, I have come to like and indeed admire the way he works through the crowd. I know many people look forward to Dejay Shaun running an evening of musical entertainment.

Dejay Shaun is in the house…

As a Doorman back as far as 2014 and even before that by a few years, I remember the customers being excited when Dejay Shaun was on, I can recall Shaun was always honest and just said what was on his mind. Even when we went out for a couple of drinks, his honesty and straight forward views made one relax and there was no beating around the bush. Dejay Shaun was a fun guy and up for many things including joining us on the back of a lorry for parades like the local Gala in 2016

How long have I known Dejay Shaun Pearcey ?
I know we got Dejay Shaun on the back of a lorry. Seriously that was the Gala in 2014, in fact I am sure I knew Dejay Shaun way back in 2012 so about 8 years I guess. As a Doorman back then I remember the customers being excited when Dejay Shaun was on, I can recall Shaun was always honest and just said what was on his mind.

One short clip which shows DJ Shaun & I where at the 2014 Gala.

Dejay Shaun was a fun guy and up for many things including joining us on the back of a lorry for parades like the local Gala in 2014, since 2007 till 2020 I have been involved in many public events. You can count on Dejay Shaun to deliver solid musical entertainment where ever it needs to be.

It would be hard to sum Dejay Shaun in a few words or even in one post like this but, I know other people who would turn up for evenings at a venue or an event would be excited and look forward to such times with Dejay Shaun running the event, myself included.

I include the ‘LIVE STREAM ENTERTAINMENT NETWORK’ link here because it is a good way to support the NHS & Musical Entertainment which Dejay Shaun is one of the main contributors.

Bognor Dancer Has Eye Of The Tiger

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.

Alien Home Alone ABS 5

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 Supply 4 Tea Bot 259

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.

Alternative Power Supply

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.

Mad Max & Super Mario kicking off…

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?

Techno Pop, Lock & Roll Dance Video

I gave a special shout out to the 4 SIKH members of all things advanced study group. During chats they gave me the idea of doing a Techno dance to Fishers ‘I’m losing it’ which is an awesome song to be honest. So to the nice people I have met on my recent dance life style and especially to the 4 SIKH Studiers a big shout out & thanks for the chats & ideas Here is that YouTube we spoke about.

Included in the small video section, starts with the first video clip in 2007 where I did a quick demo to show my dancing skills and that started me off on this now 12 year MA Dance journey. After that is a small group dance in a park, thanks to my fellow dancers Micky & Christina who I am glad to say enjoyed the idea of getting out and enjoying the dance sessions such as this one…

Please feel free to visit Dance sub site to read more…

I will be updating the Sub Site Dance which will contain some of my dance improvements & time with Urban Strides during the 24th to 26th November 2018 ‘Hip Hop Don’t Stop’ and progress towards going back in April 2019.

Tweet pages that I will be using to promote videos, websites & Stats.

I am planning a few new mini series including a 6 part ‘Stop & Go Poplocking Dance’ basics for everyone to practice and be ready for 2019 even though I will be using some videos from 6 years ago as a basis and comparison.  I hope to run this Afterburn Mini Series til Xmas 2018, I shall say bye for now and leave you with this videos and hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Afterburn 11th Nov 2018

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.

Dancing on…

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.

Dance web pages with the latest in Hip Hop dancing.

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.

Dance 4 Bognor Regis

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…

Poplock & Sol bopping away
Dancing away an popping and locking every day

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…
