Hey guys! Here is a video I recorded today.
I realize it's pretty sloppy and the energy level is pretty low.. Anyways, leave a comment and advice is always appreciated!

Actually, this is a fairly good clip! You're taking your time, riding the beat, and playing around with your motions/moves. Plus you've got some character too, so all-in-all, not bad...
1.) try to keep more light on your feet. Practice the locker march with like a funky bounce (on the balls of your feet); I just like the way this looks. Scramblelock has an awesome bounce, so check out clips of him for reference. Often when poppers learn to lock, I've noticed that they're too heavy on their feet. So yeah, stay light and bouncy--it'll help.
2.) Your moves are pretty complete, but I would drill your fundamentals with a lot of SNAP to the movements. Sometimes we sacrifice snap and power for looseness; I think it can work sometimes, but usually it makes our moves look smaller.
3.) Just remember: dancing is more important than doing "locking" moves. Really focus on developing a groove as a foundation. You've got a little bit of it, but you can always have more!
Good job! Keep it up!
