Snap, Pop n' Lock is Snap, Pop n' Rock

The name of our signature hip hop class was created to honor one of our favorite childhood cereals 'Rice Crispy's tagline 'Snap, Crackle, Pop'.

The name was created before the structure of the class was formed. The fact that the name 'Snap' coincides with my dance name SnapShot and 'Pop' with WandeePop is all divine rhythm. So people can stop asking who is 'Lock' LOL

Using 'Lock' was the perfect style to include in the name because it was the Funk Styles we wanted to teach in conjunction with our hip hop party dancing. But we are NOT masters of Locking. We have learned Locking Basics from the creator Don Campbellock, as well as Skeeter Rabbit (RIP), Jazzy Jay & Sugar Pop. But our initial Locking influences are Mr. Wiggles and PopMaster Fable before we had the women's influence in Breakin 1&2 with Loli Pop and Original Locker Toni Basil. So for those who want to learn the Funk Style of Locking please follow one of these instructors, as well as Shabba Doo, Original Locker.

Locking is not a major part of our class structure, but we do perform Locking drills to help with Points, Wrist Rolls, Angles, Locks & Scoops.

WandeePop and I only want to teach what we learned growing up in the Bronx too keep the authenticity of who we are, which is why we are officially changing the name to Snap, Pop & Rock.
We are pioneer BGirls in the 80's Hip Hop Party Dancing Style with a taste of Rocking.

Latin Rocking is the original style from the Bronx that we rocked in the jams. We just loved to get down. As well as top rocking. It derives from Latin Inspired Dances such as: Rumba, Salsa, Samba and Mambo.

We are currently changing all Logos and Promotional Materials and will debut the NEW logo soon.
