[Sticky] ROLL CALL! Where are you from?
My name is Boris, I live in NYC. Started dancing a year ago with breaking at EXPG and did that for 6-8 months before the physical/dynamic toll of the practice burned me out. Mind you, I've had a physical practice that evolved around gymnastics, rock climbing, capoeira and yoga for 7 years now. I was mostly interested in the top rock aspect of bboy anyway, so when the practice evolved into performing cool tricks and being aggressive, I was no longer interested. I'm naturally a chill, "go with the flow" dude so when I took house with Huu Rock, it matched my personality perfectly, and I felt like I was actually dancing to music with such a rich complexity of rhythms that you can never get bored. There also feels a better integration with all the other skills and modalities I've acquired.
Looking forward to getting a more complete picture of house dance and footwork so I can go to the club and freestyle. Thank you Jardy!
My name is Ying. I'm from China and live in Brisbane, Australia. I started hip hop dancing about two month ago and love it. While doing a beginner hip hop dance course, my teacher showed us some of the basic moves in house dancing and mentioned that if you want to learn more, go ahead to Jardy's Youtube channel. Since then I practiced a few moves based on Jardy's tutorial online and it is quite helpful! Jacking is so hard at the beginning but I think I'm improving over the time.
Looking forward to improving with everyone. Cheers!
Yo man! From NYC too and I take Huu Rock's house class all the time! He is an amazing teacher and his choreography is always smooth & groovy!
I’m Sophie (Chinese name Yusi, maybe hard to pronounce for you) from China. I grew up in Sichuan but now live in Shanghai. I’ve been taking street dance classes for about 3 years in dance studios in Shanghai (ironically, We don’t dance in streets......). At the beginning, I was fascinated by the cool moves in popping. But soon I came across house dance and really enjoyed the feel when I dance it (after a lot of trial and error of course!）
Unfortunately, there aren’t so many people dancing house as hip-hop, popping or other styles. The choices of house classes are really limited here (no more than 3-5 teachers really capable of giving house lessons, I think) despite of master classes from time to time. Currently, we’re experiencing an epidemic of the new corona virus. That’s why I decided to take the opportunity to enroll in Jardy’s lessons. Hope we can make progress here together.
peace & love
All the best to you, Shanghai and China! Hope the situation will get better soon!!!
Thank you for your encouragement. Actually the epidemic was one of the reasons why I registered for this program. Maybe I won’t be able to dance with my friends in studios for a couple of months (people contact is discouraged since this could increase chances of infection). But I thought it could be an opportunity to try this online program out. If it were not for the virus, I wouldn’t know you guys and your dance here!
