Dear PICKUPDANCE Student, We're excited to announce our new locking program. Locking is a funk-style street dance that works really well for funk and disco inspired music. Funk music has never died, and you'll constantly hear funk-inspired music in Top 40 tracks, such as in our previously released lesson for Justin Timberlake's single "Can...

In this EDM/House Dance lesson, we'll dance to the chart topping hit  "This Is What You Came For" by Calvin Harris featuring Rihanna.  The song switches between a pretty clubby verse to an extremely catchy classic-house style chorus.  Since we've done so many practices, this one is going to step it up with some advanced...

Get ready to lock!  We just released a locking program so prepare to see some preview lessons pop up in the next few days.  In the meantime, here's a fun club-style locking video for you to groove to today! In this club style locking lesson, we'll dance to "Can't Stop That Feeling" by Justin Timberlake. This Top 40 track is...

In this EDM/House Dance lesson, we'll dance to "How Deep Is Your Love" by Calvin Harris. This song has a chill, deep house beat with a moderate tempo that makes it great for freestyling and trying out new dance mvoes. As usual, the song has several "quiet sections", such as the intro and the bridge, in which we'll do shoulder rolls...

In this EDM/House Dance lesson, we'll dance to "What Do You Mean" by Justin Bieber.  It's a popular song and rightfully so - the song has some clean and nicely produced house elements.  It has a faster tempo than Justin Bieber's other hit "Sorry", so we'll ease it up by using some less dynamic moves such as the...

In this EDM/House Dance lesson, we'll dance to "Sorry" by Justin Bieber.  It's a popular song and rightfully so - the song has a classic house sound do it.  It also has a slower tempo, making it a great pratice song for beginners.  We'll build into the song by doing half-jacking and jacking for the verse. The song hits...

EDM Dancers! Many of you have messaged me wanting lessons with a higher difficulty, so here you go!  I'm also switching to a slightly new format.  Rather than release a whole program at once, I'm releasing individual lessons now.  This way, the release schedule is more consistent.   In this intermediate lesson, we'll be...

I have a confession.  I don't go to regular clubs as often anymore because, honestly, it gets really repetitive.  I've gone so many times to experiment that I can't tell one night from the next.  By regular clubs, I mean the standard nightclubs with theme-park long lines, eardrum shattering loudness, wallet-burning...

In this lesson, we'll practice some our basic club dance moves to a cover of Rock That Body by the Black Eyed Peas by mixing the basic Step Touch, The Scoop And Pose, the Push Step Hesitation, and some Figure Eights to finish. We'll transition smoothly between the moves as well vary up the timing and pace with the song. Rock That Body is a classic,...

In this updated lesson, I show a fun, flirty dance move I call The Cyclone. It mixes a series of turns - one for the girl (follower), one for the guy (leader), and a head loop to finish with an optional sexy body roll finish. On top of that, I show a few variations to the Cyclone, and demo it to an EDM track so you can see how to get in and out of the Cyclone...
