Freebase

  1. Waving

    Waving is a dance style composed of a series of movements that give the appearance that a wave is traversing a dancer's body. Waving is thought to have grown out of the popping and funk dance scene and is often seen combined with popping and its related styles. Today, however, there are many practitioners who practice waving without involving popping, such as David Elsewhere. Waving is also seen combined with liquid dancing, especially when practiced within electronica communities.
