Stress and Poco-poco

It's been a while I didn't have a chance to update my blog, a week I guess. Well plenty of works need to be done in a short period perhaps less than a month. Arghhhh. I need to stay calm and relax, think rationale and insyaallah the work will be done smoothly and coordinately. How about listening to music or dancing to release my stress? Yeap. How about poco-poco? Have anyone out there try this dancing before? Poco-poco is a dancing from Indonesia if I'm not mistaken. It is a popular dancing in Perlis and I've learned poco-poco from this state too. Refresh the memory back in Arau, five years ago. Well, poco-poco is a simple dancing which u need to know the step and move your body effortlessly follow-by the music which named Poco-poco. More over, this dancing is much similar with Archy Breaky Heart dancing. What makes the different is, one is dangdut (Malay) and the other is classic rock (English). If I got the chance to find out the video of this dancing I would upload it here, in my blog. Maybe some other times. Let's poco-poco, to release the level of my streSS.

KrumpinG

Krumping is an urban street dance form that began in South Central Los Angeles. It is characterized by free, expressive, and highly energetic moves involving the arms and chest, and has become a major part of hip hop dance culture alongside other forms, such as breaking, popping, locking and freestyling. Krump is a relatively new dance-form. Like other styles of dance, Krump is seen by many as a faith-based art-form. Accordingly, many of its pioneers spell Krump as an acronym (K.R.U.M.P.), which stands for Kingdom Radically Uplifted Mighty Praise.Like all forms of street dance, hip hop music is the predominant type used for krump. Although many credit the originator of BUCK music to a group called THA J SQUAD, who continue to Produce "tracks" that have influenced how Krump has turned out to be. The orginator of Krump, Tight Eyez, also produced a few albums that promotes the spirituality of the dance. The style of hip hop is an essential factor in krump dancing, music sets the tone, tempo and mood of the dance "battle." The music is usually upbeat and aggressively lyricized, although music is often modified to remove lyrics creating "instrumentals."

"Line Dancing" are for the Aunties???

Line Dancing? Have you ever heard about it? Basically, Line Dancing is refer to the oldies especially Chinese lady who love to dance in a group of their age. It was called line dancing because the dancers will perform a line accordingly and the instructor will guide the dancers from the front. Moreover, line dancing has many steps of dancing for example the cha-cha, twist, shake, etc. Well I used to learned line dancing before and I find it very interesting. I still remember how to dance cha-cha using J lo music, Lets Get Loud, The Shake and not forgotten the Archy Breaky Heart songs. Usually, the Aunties a.k.a housewives like to dance line dancing because they feel enjoyable spending their time dancing with a group of friends. That's why this type of dancing will always referred to the aunties. Before I end up typing my blog for today, just a reminder that dancing is a satisfaction for myself and maybe others. Try to move your body peeps.

best ke shuffle?

Kebelakangan ini, kita dapat lihat bahawa remaja-remaja sekarang suka "shuffle" terutamanya remaja berbangsa Cina. Apa itu shuffle? Shuffle adalah satu tarian atau exercise yang menggunakan kaki. Kekuatan kaki untuk twist and turn the leg. Tarian ni ada banyak steps seperti steps 1,2,3 dan seterusnya. Saya tidak tahu bagaimana nak shuffle dan selalu melihat anak-anak muda masa kini menari tarian ini. Sejurusnya, tarian ini juga mempunyai kumpulannya tersendiri serta seluar khas untuk mereka yang benar-benar menyertai tarian shuffle. Kebiasaanya tarian ini, menari ikut rentak muzik rave. Apa yang lebih menarik, beberapa minggu yang lepas saya telah ke Bukit Bintang dan ada beberapa remaja yang sedang shuffle dengan gigihnya di hadapan khalayak ramai. Mungkin inginkan perhatian untuk memberitahu bahawa mereka adalah raja shuffle. Mereka telah menarik perhatian saya pada waktu dan ketika itu. Tambahan lagi, saya ada seorang kawan yang suka sangat menari tarian ini. Dia seorang yang sangat aktif dengan tarian ini dan kami menggelarnya the king of shuffle a.k.a Wadi. Jangan marah ye Wadi. Shuffle dengan muzik rave tidak dapat dipisahkan. Jika ada kesempatan, saya akan mendalami lagi tentang tarian yang agak pelik ini di kemudian hari.

Zapin vs Capoeira

If i have a chance to learn dancing i would probably choose zapin or either capoeira. Zapin?Capoeira?Well zapin is a traditional dancing from Johor which have a unique body movement especially the head. I am so curious and excited about zapin when the dancers started to budge their head which is so interesting for me to learn it one day, i guess. In the old days, only males were allowed to perform but nowadays, female dancers are included. It used to be performed exclusively for religious ceremonies but through the years it has become a form of traditional entertainment, hence the participation of female dancers are allowed. The dancers usually perform in pairs and are accompanied by a traditional music ensemble normally consists of the gambus, accordion, violin, marwas (bongos), rebana (drum) and dok.

How should i describe capoeira?Basically capoeira "A dance like a fight, a fight like a dance, a song... a way of life" is a blend of martial art, game and dance originated in Brazil. The art-form started up in Brazil during the 16th Century, an obvious result of the slave trading that took place in conjunction with the previously slaved native Indians. Capoeira was created and developed by slaves brought from Africa. Participants form a roda (circle) and take turns playing instruments, singing and sparring in pairs in the center of the circle. The game is marked by fluid acrobatic play, feints and extensive use of groundwork, as well as sweeps, kicks and headbutss. Less frequently-used techniques include elbow-strikes, slaps, punches and body-throws.
