FIRST POPPER
THERE WERE ALLOT OF STYLES OF DANCE THAT EXISTED IN THE EARLY 70'S IN NORTHERN CA THAT ARE ASSOCIATED WITH POPPIN.
BUT IN THE ELECTRIC BOOGALOOS OPINION, "BOOGALOO SAM" WAS THE FIRST TO DO WHAT WE SEE AS POPPIN TODAY...
FLEXING OF THE MUSCLES TO THE BEAT WHILE DANCING...
NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH THE ROBOT OR AND OTHER FORMS OF PANTOMIME DANCE THAT EXISTED BEFORE POPPIN
