This is an introduction to krump dancing. Are you guys ready? 'Cause I know I am, here we go. So this is the demo to dance like Tight Eyez. Tight Eyez, strong, intricate, powerful, tricks, massacre. That's what he does. He damages the opponent. He shows the opponent. He has a little bit of trickery. Gives a little bit of energy. But he's really clean, crisp, strong, energetic. He likes to play with the crowd and he likes to play with his opponent. So what you have to do is, is be able to in mind frame yourself as Tight Eyez. Play with your opponent. Play with the character. Play with the person you're going against. Show the crowd what you are. How powerful you are. That's what he does. He shows them his power. He shows them the energy. He shows great technique and foundation of krump. Let's use a couple moves. Now I'm in character. So he likes to just draw back a little bit. And when he goes into his battle, he doesn't show too much. He just shows enough. Nice, crisp, just enough small movement right there shows intimidation. That's shows that he's about to go in. Go in. Going into the battle. Take a step back. He likes to show the arms, chest pop, the gallop. Footwork is also a big thing. Always watch Michael Jackson. That's who he trains off of. Footwork, the whole body, the arms, the chest pop. Tight Eyez is all energy. All power. Shows the almighty. That's what it's about.
