half way to getting the poppin flowing for a while,
but was lacking the grasp of several moves; so there
were many "aha!" moments whilst watching.
Hey rich i ordered your videos and
i did some of the moves i learned at prom, and i
was the life of the party thanks to you.
I ordered your vid about a month or so ago. Since
I got it I have been practicing nonstop! I just wanted
to say thanks again for making such an amazing vid
that breaks down moves so basic so that people of
all skill levels can learn!
I have been dancing for about 4 years
or so(liquid mostly some amateur popping and most recently
locking)but I have been trying to get down that side
glide for about 2 and a half years now, and until you
explained every movement that was involved it just
never clicked. I have asked people at clubs and raves
for so long they just never could break it down the
way you did.
I also found your segment on hitting
to be very helpful. The tutting segment was very cool
too, some good new concepts. One more thing I loved
about your vid was that it broke down the basic forms
of moves but didnt actually give like whole routines,
(so you can freak it your own way and put your own
style on it, no biting!) def a vid by steppers for
steppers. again thanks so much Richie! peace,
Got your dvd and wanted to let you know that it is
the best. I agree with that guy on your clip -you
are sick! You get straight down to business,
clearly explaining correct form and technique without
all that hollywood crap. It feels just like a real
dance class.Thanks for sending it so fast also.
ps. if you ever travel to Australia let me know.
Dear Richie, I am a 45 year old "wanna
be dancer who longed to learn all this popping stuff
I used to see these kidsdoin the subways in NYC,
but felt ridiculous going up to these youngin's and
asking em to teach me, not that they would anyway...
I was beginning to give up hope...
Then I got your DVD..
Imagine my surprise when one day at the subway these
youngin's asked ME to come out and dance with them
when they saw me Popping on the side doing the moves
I learned from your DVD!
Your instruction is clear, concise, idiot proof and
best of all show you a view of you doing it FROM
THE BACK something other instructional DVD's completely
I would highly recommend your DVD to anyone wanting
to learn how to do this great style of dance! Thanks!
The DVD is so different from all the other popping videos
I have seen. The way you break down different moves
makes them so much easier to learn. Certainly most
of the other popping instructionals I have seen just
have a guy demonstrating different moves and/or just
showing off rather than actually teaching them. You
take the time to actually explain the details of
different moves and how to achieve different effects.
I recieved the instructional dvd today and I must
say that I am impressed. The level of competence
that comes across is remarkable. Just as how the
backslide guide on your website taught me how to
moonwalk in 5 minutes, the instructional DVD reiterated
a few points on things like sideslides and floats
I had never thought of but were bugging me. Straight
away I am a much better popper beacuse of it, thank
you. I nearly wet myself during the clip where
your cat walks through after a confused look at
I'm turning into a popping fiend now.
All my friends say I can't do a thing without turning
it into some sort of robotic routine. I even open the
fridge differently. I've not reached popping while
drinking a beer yet, though. Thanks for all the inspiration.
Received your Pop and Lock DVD and loved it. I am
a national and international competitor in West
coast Swing, Salsa, and Country Western dancing
and I have won both "United States" and "World" dance
championships. I am 57 years old (hardly the age
one would think of as a "popper") and
I am starting to use your Popping techniques to
embellish and enhance my dancing style. I just
had a 16 year old dancer ask me to show him some
of those "cool" moves. You really do
a great job of simplifying and breaking down the
techniques so that they are more easily learnable.
Thanks for sending it out so quickly. It is an awesome
instructional DVD. You manage to break it down
so that it can be learnt.
Dear Rippin' Richie,
Thank you very much!!!!!
I have received the DVD. It is very good
and the teaching is very clear. I am learning
the side glide. Hope that I can catch
the skill earlier.
