I learnt about various dances influence by the rhythms and techniques of funk and hip-hop music, such as threading, b-boying and freestyle. This involved me using my body to make different shapes and designs. I did a swan by holding my left arm straight up from the elbow and curving my hand. My right arm connected with my left arm. I then rotated my hands and arms around. I also did freezing, spinning, twisting, jumping, a corkscrew and many others. It is all about movement and connection.
I enjoyed trying something new, as I have not done dancing like this before. I enjoyed doing this with my dance instructor Ben, as he breaks things down and makes it very easy to understand. I felt afterwards like I had achieved something.
I learnt to start with the easy urban dance moves, before eventually progressing on to the advanced moves. My skills did improve as I learnt you can train your body, and you can make shapes with your body through dance and creation.
