What to Expect
"We caught POPADOK headlining 'Salon Mauve Slice Of Life Hair Show', at the Atrium Lounge in Atlanta. This is a powerful, professional performer with a dance style that's 100% authentic. Get ready for some 'seriously' hip hop freestyle dance, music, and universal expression. POPADOK was jaw dropping amazing. He has it all, looks, polish, impressive moves and talent. His 'newstyle dances' are loaded with strong unique back-in-tha-day signature moves-gestures beat after beat. Just when you think he's done with one of style of dance ... he got two or three more moves connecting poppin, waving, and locking. Bottomline, he sums each song up with breathtaking dance combinations...' that kills.
POPADOK delivered a set that made sure you couldn't label his performance anything less than a "hardcore dance pro". When you think you know what POPADOK is all about, he shows you another talented side. You could seriously hurt yourself imitating his complex footwork and his mastered flow of robotic-animation. He's got a serious side that's seriously talented like Michael Jackson when he start performing. If you love dance, you have to see POPADOK any time he's in your town."

D. PopaDOK Willis has been a core dancer and choreographer with UniverSoul Circus for over 7 years. He has conducted workshops in numerous places, including Atlanta's Dance 411 dance studio, Swint Elementary, Inman Middle School, Boushall and Chamblee Middle Schools and North Atlanta High School.

The dances lessons taught or performed for entertainment reflect the cultural movement that began in the Bronx in New York City in 1976, mostly among the African-American and Latino population and the Los Angeles' scene nourished by soul, R&B and funk music at outdoor functions and discos. The dances are performed standing upright and have influences from many sources, including afro-cuban, african and native tribal dances with movements and rhythms that vary among different ethnic groups. Because of the competitive nature of hip hop dance in general upright dances are supplemented with increasing footwork. If one dancer danced upright then interrupted that dance to lower onto the floor and perform complex footwork or freezes, the next dancer would be expected to outdo the first dancer, adding more complicated footwork to their dance. These important concepts are relayed via dance and music which is an integral part of urban streetdance culture and tradition. Each individual class session can include beginners dance technique, musicality dance techniques or a combination of both. Our classes normally are divided into three sections – preschool elementary age, secondary age, and adolescence.
Pop-A-DOK helps to maintain the legendary “b-boy battles" in Atlanta, GA while exhibiting his unique style which have years of performance and teaching experience to share with each student. Dance lessons are best held in professional studios.
