This is an introduction to krump dancing. Are you guys ready? 'Cause I know I am, here we go.. This is how you do an arm swing. Let's break it down. I like to stay key to your foundation. Get the legs out nice and wide. Strong, big. Now remember the ceiling fan? It's up there, yeah? Let's rip through that. Tear the ceiling fan down. Nice and easy right there. Nice and easy. Bring it back, easy, back, easy, back, easy. Tear through, tear through. It's like having sheets in front of you. You always want to rip through, rip through, rip through. That's what you need to do. So let's slow it down. Tearing through. That's always what you want to do. Tear through, tear through, tear through. That's what you want to use. You want to have another analogy? Sword. Tear through. Always use the legs. You can even step back in your arms swing. You can come back out. You can have a gallop.That's what you want to use. Arm swings, big and strong. Make sure you have good foundation. Because if not you do an arm swing, you're going to fall forward and you're going to lose balance. So if you ever feel like you're going to lose balance, step back into your foundation and use the arms swing. That's what you need to use. Foundation. Technique. Form. Creative.
