Popping is a style in itself, that involves snapping the legs back, and flexing your muscles continuously to the beat to give a jerky/snapping effect. Sam would say the word “pop” (under his breath) every time he flexed while he danced, and people would ask him “Hey do that popping stuff!” Electric Boogaloo style is combining popping and boogaloo style together. The two styles complement each other well and are known worldwide as the signature styles of the Electric Boogaloos. Today, popping has been incorporated into both the hip hop and electronica dance scenes to some extent.
