In today’s world each and every style of dance is getting advance. People are exploring more and more style of dance. However, there is one style which has never been old. This style is a legend and is evergreen from ages. That name of that danicng style is called hip hop dance.
Wave is one of the main steps of the body movements that represents hip hop dance. Wave plays the vital role specially while doing a popping dance. This steps need some time to master it. Many people who can do the wave are not aware about doing it perfectly.
Importance of wave in hip hop dance
Those people who know the importance of hip hop dance should be aware of the importance of wave in that dance as well. I believe perfect wave is very important to make an impression to the crowd. When you are doing the wave you should do it in such a way that when other people watch it they should be asking themselves a question like “how the hell did he/she do that”. We should be able to bring a goose bump by showing our waves to the audience. If you are doing the perfect wave, trust me you are already on your way to be a successful hip hop dancer. You don’t need a mass audience or need to be as popular as marquese scott or popping john to be the successful dancer. If you can do the perfect wave then you can just show it in the parties or to your surroundings. I am sure they will be surprise and you can be the star of the show where you can get the real happiness by brininging smile on everyone’s face.
Feel your hands moment
Lets talk about how to do it perfectly. When doing a wave, always start with your top of the hands which is your finger. Its hard to describe in words. So what I will suggest you’re doing is to watch the video on YouTube. Try to do exactly like that. I know it is going to look rediculous. Your first attempt is going to be the world’s funniest wave but it does not matter. You just watch the video and try to find where you’re doing wrong and do it all the time. Think about the wave and keep doing it with both of your hands. Start from one side of your hand’s edge, all the way to the other side. You need to practice with both side of your hand. Because, if you learn from only one side then the other hand is not going to get the wave by itself. Feel the moment of your hand. How you’re doing it and put your energy from the top of your fingers to your shoulder and all the way to the end of your other hand. Always try to feel it. Keep doing this until you realize if it is good enough for you to call it perfect or not.
Wave by facing the mirror
If you really want to be the dancer. You must know that mirror is your best friend. It will never lie of what you’re doing. It will respond the real thing that you are doing. Mirror is the most effective judge to evaluate your progress. Therefore, I suggest you practicing wave by standing infront of the mirror. Even when you see your shadow, look at the shadow and do the wave. By doing this you will be able to figure out how much you have improved or where you are doing it wrong. You can tell if the wave really looks like a wave or just weird. Another way of figuring out if you are really improving it or not is that asking your friends. You must ask at least 5 people in your surroundings. Only one person’s answer is not strong enough. You could also record a video of it in your phone and check it. But the bottom line is, don’t stop. What I will suggest is to do it even after you think that you are doing it perfectly. Beleive me, by doing this that you will become invincible in waving.
Make a habit of wave
As I said, do the wave even when you think you’re making perfect wave. If you really want to learn the wave which will blow people’s mind away then you must make a habit of doing it constantly. I used to do it under the bench when I was in school. But I used to wave only my fists part of my hand, so that other people cannot see it. To be honest, I made a habit of doing it in such a way that, someitmes even I was not aware that I was learning. I I used to do it both consciously and unconsciously. As a result, I became awesome at it. Now, the people who see me doing wave for the first time, I can tell that they get really surprised. That feelings is the one reason that inspires me to become more and more better dancer everyday.
Wave is one of the most important and effective move in hip hop dance. It brings the charmness in the dance. It’s like a power of hip hop dance which can be achieved by practice and hard work. Ofcourse it is hard to achieve, if not then everyone else can do it, then there would be no fun. Once you learn this cool step, it can be useful in other dance style as well. Therefore, from the bottom of my heart, I highly recommend you to learn it whenever you get the chance, if you are really interested in dance like me. Try to do it infront of the mirror as much as you can. I know there will be some point where you feel like quitting but feelings does not matter because they are temporary. The thing that matters is what’s the right thing for you to do and what makes you happy. If you want to be an awesome dancer then mastering a wave is the perfect start for you.
