My first popping class was in Barcelona at the age of 14 with Popping Pete. At this time i felt in love of this style and now i think is the most important style for understand the movement and the energies. It doesn’t matter which style do you want to dance, that popping technique will help you a lot.
From then, i start following the Old School’s piioneers in this style, but also i love how feels Yuyin, Sonya, Poppin C, Yuki, Eun G, Hozin, etc. Never forgetting who i really learned in Spain, Frank da Costa (boogaloo) and Kanga Valls (animation).
