This is an introduction to krump dancing. Are you guys ready? 'Cause I know I am, here we go.
So this is how you do a foot-stomp. You want to be big and bring it down- Bringing it up and bringing it down. Krump dancing is a very big warrior form, you have to have character. So your foot-stomp is very important. Its just like saying a vibration; A earthquake! So when you step it up, you bring it down and make sure its a earthquake. Make sure its powerful, make sure it's intimidating; let the crowd and audience see what your doing, let them see your power, let them see what your bringing to the table. So you have to have a great foot-stomp and have it nice and clean. So lets be graceful with the foot-stomp. You want to bring the knee up, you want to bring the knee down. You want to make sure its strong and intricate but, at the same time let the vibration happen through your foot-stomp. Make sure its sharp, easy, sweet and nice. If you come down to hard, thats a blown knee; Thats a messed up ankle. You might even smack a couple toes.
Step middle, step over, slide it back. Thats how easy it is. Your foot-stomp: strong, big, intricate but, make sure its graceful. Enjoy that, practice it-Repetition.
