This blog was originally established as a place for me to document my progress in dance, but clear as day, it has inevitably failed to serve its purpose due to my overwhelming ability to sidestep and forget things. I’ll try my best to do a recap here.
It’s been about 9 months since I jumped into popping, and everyday I continue to learn more and more. I still remember the warm September nights I came to the parking structure to learn how to hit and how to do the wave and how to be incredibly intimidated in my first gigantic cypher.
DDR provided a gigantic deferment in freestyle practice, but now that it’s been over for a while now, sessions have resumed. Attendance isn’t as high as it used to be, but it’s still decent for the dedicated that show up. I’m certain my style has changed, but I don’t know how exactly. I don’t take videos of myself, and even if I did, there’s no guarantee I’d watch it. My foundation has gotten a little better, but I am still at a loss for concepts. This summer, I plan to do a lot more dancing.
I never want to stop learning. Granted, I could be more rigorous or active in my training, it doesn’t mean that I’ll slow to a stop. I want to learn more popping, on top of other styles as well. Sometimes I can’t decide if I want a little bit of everything, or a lot of one thing. I figure I might as well take a stab at whatever inspires me and to see where it takes me. All I know is that I don’t want to stop dancing.
