MISCONCEPTIONS

POPPIN AND LOCKIN ARE A PART OF HIP HOP DANCE
TECHNICALLY POPPIN AND LOCKIN HAVE THEIR OWN HISTORY THAT EXISTED BEFORE THEY EVEN KNEW WHAT HIP HOP WAS. THEIR MOVEMENT WAS BASED MORE ON WEST COAST FUNK. BUT THE COLLABORATION OF THE TWO CULTURES CREATED A GREAT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BOTH COASTS. ESPECIALLY IN DANCE.
POWER MOVES STARTED IN CALI
ALTHOUGH CALI CAN TAKE SOME CREDITS FOR HELPING TO ELEVATE POWER MOVES, BUT MOVES LIKE, FLARES, CONTINUOUS FLARE, FLARE 90'S, HOLLOW BACKS, TAP HEAD SPINS, HEAD SPIN 90'S, AIR MOVES, AIR TRACK, AXELS (AIR FLARE), SWIRLS (DOUBLE ELBOW SPINS), UFO'S, AND ALL THAT OTHER GOOD STUFF STARTED IN NYC.
THE WORD BREAK WAS TAKEN FROM A SLANG FOR THE LOCK IN LOCKING
THE WORD BREAK IN BBOY CAME FROM THE BREAK OF A RECORD (THE PERCUSSION, OR DRUM SOLO IS CALLED A BREAK). THIS HAS BEEN A FACT SINCE THE EARLY 70'S. 
CARD BOARD BOXES
ORIGINAL BBOYS WERE ON STRAIGHT UP CONCRETE REPRESENTING, OR WOOD AND MARBLE FLOORS. THE WHOLE CARD BOARD THING CAME ABOUT IN THE EARLY 80'S AND WAS USED RARELY. MOSTLY FOR SPINNING. BY THIS TIME THE MEDIA BLEW THE WHOLE THING OUT OF PROPORTION AND TURNED IT INTO A CORNY GIMMICK.
