    what u think of hip hop dancing?

    i am working the hip hop dancing world championships and it's really weird. Its at a resort in Las Vegas and the halls are filled with people wearing really really goofy clothes and they all are talking the same. They repeat everything they say twice, they bend over when they laugh and make a crazy face, but no sounds actually come out and when they stand back up they say "OH MAN!" One girl from the Netherlands was wearing an Adidas sweatshirt as a pair of pants. They all have nicknames AKA dub-tape AKA - Mizta Ace AKA Fake Ass Grass. They all truly believe they are doing they're own thing. When I am walking past them in the halls, they are moving their hands around weird cause they are going over their routines in their head. They all have WAY too much attitude.

    NOTE: When I say "they", I actually mean about half of the people.

    Some of the routines are really really cool and it is obvious when you see guys who really have talent but this is like %10 tops. For the most part, they do not have much athletic talent or good choreography and their routines are just embarrassing.

    I just can't understand how this can become such a huge phenomenon when crews can practice a routine for 2 months and get on stage at a national level with no prior experience. I can't think of any other sport or activity in which this can happen.

                    this is the crew that won last year.

                    And in regards to the breaking stuff, there are the occassional breaking moves in the routines, but only about 1 in 5 crews has one or maybe two guys that can do them. The rest of the crew just has to move in synch with the dance moves, which oftentimes does not require a lot of skills. There is also a Locking and Popping battle, but that hasn't happened yet.

                    It just amazes me how popular this has become and in my opinion, it is not even that cool or require too many skills.

                          I've always wanted to learn to crip walk really well.

                          It always looked cool to me.

                            i grew up one county over from the largest accumulation of filipino people outside of the phillipines

                            i had to sit through many a filipino hip hop dance routine through high school assemblies

                              breaking and popping and locking can be really tight, but crimping and all of that other new jack gay shit is just retarded. i fully agree with you that a lot of "hip hop dancing" is super wack nowadays and requires no real skill, athleticism, rhythm or anything really.


                              watch a good breaking crew and it's a whole 'nother story.
