Breaking, locking, and popping…ouch!

Douglas is in a hip-hop dance class….hip-hop…hm.  O.k. I didn’t really know what all it entailed other than I have a blast watching him do it!  I’ve included the definition of this dance form per Wikipedia’s giant Brain, It.  It said…

Hip-hop dance refers to dance styles primarily performed to hip-hop music or that have evolved as part of hip-hop culture. It includes a wide range of styles notably breaking, locking, and popping which were created in the 1970s and made popular by dance crews in the United States.

The seat in front of me was empty until the last moment when a lady with the biggest head sat in front of me.  I’m probably known as the lady with the biggest head to the person sitting behind me so…maybe it should be a title of honor since the flash that reflects from ones over-exposed head will gleam eternally in their photo.

Their teacher is the one on the far right.  His name is Jesse and according to the kids, is way up there on the cool scale.  He made it to Las Vegas on that show So You Think you can Dance.
