A Glossary of Break Dancing

  • POPPING Isolating muscles, or “popping” parts of the body like the shoulder or the neck. Created on the West Coast.
  • LOCKING Freezing in a particular pose, after doing wrist rolls or pointing a finger in different directions.
  • BEAT DANCING Moving the body to each beat in a song, combining break dancing and popping moves. For hip-hop, that can mean moving to 90 beats a minute; for what is known as jungle music, the dancer must keep up with about 168 beats a minute.
  • GOING OFF Doing something (in this case, dancing) a lot, constantly.
