Raving... Improvement

greenspun.com : LUSENET : North Carolina Raves : One Thread

Hey, I'm a DJ and I'm into raving.. Like.. old School you know>? I never been to a rave, and I never done E or any other drugs... Probably cuz I'm only 14. But I'm still into the music and feelin the vibe, and that's what it's about. The thing is my ravin isn't that impressive. I was the best at my school until two hellllllla good kids came from L.A.... now i'm shit

I can kinda do liquid but i wanna know how to do more.... impressive shit in like breakers circles and stuff...

Thanks, Levi

well kid you got alot to learn about raves. I live in Canada and we know how to rave. Don't go to liquid, start trance. Trance is the only way to go. That's all i play.

Liquid is self expression i learned by pactricing in front of the mirror for a long time. then one day when you feel you are good enough just bust out your moves don't care what people think about your style so just practice in front of the mirror and come up with your own style

Hey, I'm not a raver but I like the whole raving aspect of the clubs and was wondering what kind of moves are common in the "glowstick" circle? I mean i know how to figure eight and body trace but thats about it.

Hey Levi!

I know what you mean about getting showed up... I was the only one at my school who could rave, liquid, breakdance, all that, until some new kids transfered in. They could breakdance and all that, and they got all the attention for a while. But I asked for some pointers, and they helped a bunch! Now we all do the stuff together (battles and even full routines). I am 16, so I understand the age thing. Just hang out with other breakdancers, and the moves come to you. On the equipment note, get some strings for your glowsticks if you don't already have them. Strings are phat as hell! That's the thing I do now, and I have a couple of my own special moves. All it takes is practice, man. PLUR, man...

i'm learnin liquid too. Wut i know is, wen u dance liquid, u never stop moving but u can add moves like if u were flowing in water and u bumped into a wall and floated the opposite way. Like a quick transiton. Michael Jackson does sum of that stuff in sum videos...

yea just wunted to reply to ur thing, im from canada, well Vancouver and we have a lot of really good dancers... i think eveyrone is as good as everyone else. just developed ur own unique style and ppl will think ur good in ur own little way, that's how i am, if i see someone do the shit that i do i'll think they suk, but if i see something new and the person isn't that good, i'll still they're good. hard to explain... try to forget about liquid, cauze a lot of ppl can do liquid, i mean everyone in my school can do it, it just spread wen me and my friend brought it into the school.... but yea, try to learn how to do running man type steps and also some popping moves.. that should help a lot, if u have morpheus, download some of them vids!

Get yourself a set of photons, thats what I use, just get up there and feel it, try to innovate with your style. Ill use 3 different colored photons in each hand (red white and blue looks siiiiick). If you're one of the 3 kids in your school that can rave, start a club, get some moves together among the 3 of you and show them of at a party. Some of the sickest stuff I've seen at clubs had more than one person raving at a time. Practice, practice, practice. That and don't be afraid of making an arse out of yourself. peece JimmySal -"If you was born in New York City, lemme hear you say YOU KNOW THAT!"

Well i'm from chicago and here the best thing you can do is underground raves there fun but hard to find you need some friends who knows the scene pretty good. Personally i've been raving 4 2 yrs and i'm pretty good i know all the moves, cross weave, wraps, figure 8,butterfly stuff and a move i made called oktagon and well my advice for any new ravers get to know the move figure 8 because that move alone got me through my first rave and it's pretty good after that every thing comes easy and well you do need to practice...once you get good go to a rave show off ur moves good luck

you guyz are all stupit, forget raving, forget glow sticks, just let the music move u, u dont need SHIT to dance, just let the music move u, thats all u gotta learn.

-- Anonymous, December 20, 2001

I agree, Liquid and trance don't need shit. all u need to do is get the basic hand movement's straightened out, and make sure u can get ur leg movement smoothened out when u move from place to place. hm... i liquid, only liquider in the school, and the breakdancing people suck shit. so, i guess i can't learn from anyone, and it's mostly just watching vids and learning form them. (the basics). AZN PRIDE! oh yah, i'm from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

I just wanna start off by sayig anyone in here who gave you the advice to just go to a rave and go with the flow and learn for yourself is GOD DAMN STUPID and MENTALLY CHALLENGED IN THE HEAD! !st off this kid asked for some cool idea's not for you to come in here and write shit about him haveing to go to more raves and learn! Secondly THATS SHIT WHAT YOUR SAYING! How many fricken times have you gone to a rave and seen the odd kid that dont know shit about what he is doing...I KNOW I SURE HAVE SEEN THE LIL SHITS! And believe it or not ppl laugh! Seriously your all probably sayin this shit cuz your the ones that did that and probably got your ass beaten up for it! Dont go given him shit the kid just wants some tips! Anyways I suggest that you take a look at some of the Break dancin and Raving sites on the internet (google.com search engine) there some pretty phat sites out there that help a lot! And learn from expiernce dont go in the circle until you know exactly what your doing! First thing of break dancin you should learn tho is the 6 step! This can eather be the easiest step in your life you will learn or the hardest! once you know it you can add anything on the middle and ends of it! Basicly start with 2 legs should be shoulder width apart. Cross your helf foot over your right foot and bend your knees so your low to the ground with your cross over..touch your left hand to the ground and hold your right arm in the air. While still crossed with your rite foot lift it in the air (not high) up in the air..and put it back down same with your left and then do the same with your right again but exstend it and put your right arm down on the ground so your in like a crab position with your right foot exstended turn over or flip over your rite leg so that u come to the other side (like push up poistion with your rite foot exstended) and just stand up from there. After that you can add the worm..standing role on to your stomach and legs...then try the worm backwords..feet touch first. Put together a combo..that always empresses and its better then just knowing 1 single move. add some raving arms to all this different shit and you will look better then you probably do! and dont worry your 14 you got room to learn! Well thats all i got 4 now i be back! ~Shady

-- Anonymous, June 14, 2002

Oh your fucking kindding me , now you guys tell him the advice is bullshit after someone says its bullshit. WTF is that , you problably think your cool , cause you think you can pull off a flare(but it doesnt even look right cuz your ass hits the ground or some shit). And you think your smart then, think your all bad , cause someone good taught you but you STILL!!!!!! SUCK!!!!!. Shit I aint good , not like my friends that can go into a flare , switch to a windmill get up into tornades and go stright into turtles , and there 1990's and shit, But i dont look like a fag doing my shit. Dont think your good till you go down to breakdancing competitions, maybe then when oyu when you can give some advice. And yes I see them bitch's doing figure 8 and messing up wanna sock them bitch's

whats the difference between trance and liquid. can u give me an example?

-- Anonymous, September 29, 2002

there arent really alot of names for what you actually do when raving, so whatever you do thats what it is, theres certain styles or ways of doing things, like liquid, its about moving with what you know feels right, feelin the flow, yeah difenintently and thats many diferen things for diff people, you know?

hey i am tryin to learn that raving stuff too!! its pretty hard, but once you get the groove, its easy. i can do the figure 8 and liquid, but i am trying to swing photons. you know on strings? i can do the basics but it really hurts when you smack yourself. just feel the groove, you will get it.

SUp all - Iam 20 years old and I have been raving to hard trance,House and Nu NRG for the past 6 years. I tell u people what I have learned in my time. First of all - BE YOURSELF - there is nothing worse than when u go to a rave or a club and you see a mad dancer and you try copying his/her moves on the spot - U WILL BE LAUGHED AT!

Try some SIMPLE moves first of all and build your skill level from then on. Remember simple moves can still be effective depending on your steps and style.

Just practice and copy some moves and ull do fine. It took me a couple of years to be a professional rave dancer in a club but just be yourself and dont do anything stupid like 5 spins!!.

when was the time when all the football hooligans was into raving, was it late eighties or early nineties.

I cant teach any raving stuff cuz im crap at raving. All i know is the figure 8. But when you hook two white glow sticks on your ankles and the flare, it will look freaking crazy. Im the only breaker at my school so no one can say crap about me. Just do 1 or 2 flares then move into windmills. I can do them but i dont know how to teach so go to breakdance.com

Good luck man

i USED to be a raver.. til our stupid school banned it cause too many people were taking e. haha anyways. just do whatever feels right when you rave. but it has to have tempo to the music. dunt be doing whatever cause that is just gunna look dumb. but yeah. and learn more moves. haha cause down here where i am. almost EVERYONE knows how to rave. that's why the people from LA are hella good. at least learn the figure 8, around the world, liquid, liquid 8 white turtle.. that one is tight. haha and all that other stuff. haha aiite my bad if you cant read my typing...
