Another idea that helps you explore new possibilities and transform your freestyles or choreographies is to work with imaginary attributes of the floor. What this means is you style your movement with the goal to create the illusion of dancing on a certain kind of underground. It can be defined through simple adjectives like: sticky […]
Most people who are into dance, flirt with the idea of becoming a professional dancer from time to time. While this is not the right thing for everybody, it is not too hard to pull off for someone who really wants it. With discipline, dedication and honesty about what oneself can do, it is doable, […]
Four Corners is a concept that helps us to break free of a static front and helps us to explore different directions and rotations within a step or a freestyle round.

The 8-ball is a concept to create new patterns of steps based on figure eight. I heard about this idea the first time from b-boy Alieness who taught an 8-ball six step at Circle Prince Croatia.

In my early days of blogging I was known for sarcastic rants about every topic I disliked. I stopped this because I did not do any good. Today I have a relapse because I need to get something out. There is one thing that gets more and more uncommon in our society which leads to […]

Artists and creative entrepreneurs use the technique of artificial constraints to spark creativity in their work with great success. To use […]
Every great thing that happens has it’s roots somewhere. Hip hop freestyle is based on social dances and breaking took a lot from rocking and martial arts. Even krumping, which is not officially hip hop, can not deny that it has roots inside the hip hop culture. The music we krump to evolved from hip […]
Quality of movement is a term that comes up often when you are talking with professional dancers. Depending on who you are talking to, it might have a slightly different meaning, but in general it refers to how good a movement is executed. In my personal point of view this translates directly into how beautiful […]
photo from sassi / pixelio.de Pendulum is a pretty easy concepts that is very similar to Equilibrium. A pendulum goes from one side to the other and back again. So this is what we use as the guideline to create our dance. I use two versions of pendulum: Basic Pendulum: You make a move or […]
Photo from: Bernd Christian Gassner / pixelio.de A lot of artists that are building their reputation are used to do a lot of stuff themselves, even stuff that is not really their core competency.

One question that comes up frequently in beginner classes or even some intermediate classes is: “why do we have to count the music?”. The answer is very simple. Counting is THE way to navigate inside music. All western music that is based on notes (and this is at least 99% of the music that we […]
