Popping workshop with Kenpachi 

Popping is a dance style originated from California during the 70s in Fresno, California or Oakland, California. The most popular origin story credits Fresno’s Sam “Boogaloo Sam” Solomon as the creator of Popping. Popping is a dance style that is the contracting and relaxing of the muscles to create a "pop" in conjunction with the music.

About the tutor: Kenpachi

Kenpachi is an Indigenous Australian street dancer that started in 2006. After moving to Melbourne in 2009 he started popping and went on to integrate into the Melb dance scene with the crew Mamorockers through the medium of busking. In 2011 Kenpachi was one of 4 people who founded Metaphysical Groove and since then went on to travel to various countries to connect and exchange with other dancers in places such as Korea and Japan. He has also taken workshops from legends such as Poppin Pete, Mr. wiggles, Brian Green, Ejoe, Tyrone Proctor, Tony Gogo, The Gogo Brothers and Tempo. His main focus on dance is funk and having fun while playing with various aspects of music and hopes to infect others with happiness when he dances.
