Popping is a very diverse style of street dance that involves quickly flexing and contracting ones muscles in a controlled motion to give the illusion of stopping, which is called a pop or glitch.
This unique style originated in Fresno, California during the funk era of the 60s and 70s.
Within popping there are many styles, which include Boogaloo, Animation, G-Style and much more.
Boogaloo was the very first form of Popping and grooving is essential to this style.
Fundamental moves such as Fresno, Slow Motion, Toy Man, Waving, Strutting, Sinbad and more have evolved from Boogaloo.
Animation, which has no grooving also evolved out of Boogaloo.
It is the art of illusionary dancing, perfected to the point that it has become its own style.
Robot, Slow Motion, Fast Forwarding, Strobing, Vibrating, Glitch (which looks like a person moving in a laggy video or people dancing in strobe lights), Tutting and Waving are dances within this style.
