dance

Ze Motion started dancing when he was in high school. Back then, it was something he did for fun. He enjoyed it alot and kept on practicing with friends. There wasn't many teachers, no youtube, so he will buy a VHS tape from Mr Wiggles to watch and learn the different techniques of the popping dance style and whenever Mr Wiggles was teaching in the city he wouldn't miss the change to learn in person, meeting other members from the Electric Boogaloos, Mr Popin' Taco who taught him the cobra. Later on, he took classes from Mr Jazzy J soulfire, popping and locking in various NYC studios, took classes with Disco Dave, House dance classes with Mr Brian Green at the old Broadway Dance Center. He was also a big fan of sessions where dancers meet and exchange. After mastering his moves by hard work and practice, Ze Motion enjoyed sharing his art forms. He started on a voluntary basis, teaching dancing to at the ASS sorbonne, but the immense success after 2 months made him a full time teacher in the early 2000 with more than 10.000 students taking his classes over 4 years .
