Practice tip: Find your dance through drills

Summary: Drills are not meant to just teach you certain moves. Drills help you find how your body can move in a dance. Every person has a different body and way of moving; this is why no two people doing the same drill should do it exactly the same way. Practising the same exercise allows you to provide feedback to yourself and experiment.

Explanation: The main advantage of locking and popping over hip hop choreography are the fundamental “drills” you can practice over and over again (exercises like the walkout or the lock). Every person has a different body and movement characteristics. Some dancers look better moving fast and dynamic, others look better moving slow but with more force. Drills provide you with exercises that allow you to experiment on how to move in an aesthetically pleasing way. No two people doing the same drills need to look the same. God is in the details, and only drills allow you to notice these details.
