I was due for a new freestyle this month so I decided to enter the KIA Motors Dubstep Contest. Dancers from around the world are asked to use DJ Flux Pavilion’s “I Can’t Stop” and also to use a soccer/football in a short dance video. There were over 250 entries, top 8 get a free trip to Poland for the EURO 2012 soccer tournament and the grand prize is a new car. Pretty sweet deal. I thought it would be a great creative challenge so I invested in a $20 soccer ball and this is what I came up with. Enjoy!
Main reason I did this was to practice creativity. It is an important aspect of popping that can be difficult to teach, and the best way to learn it is to challenge yourself with new ideas and concepts. I had not danced with a ball previously and this challenged me to come up with unique movements with the ball. I’m happy with it.
Top 16 have not yet been announced by KIA motors, but maybe I will even get a trip to Poland out of this, that would be sweet!
