Popping is an actual dance style. This is not the umbrella term for the whole dance. The umbrella term is not funk styles either, but Boogaloo Sam has said that the umbrella term is Boog style. There are three different ways to dance if you are following Boogaloo Sam's or EB's pattern: Poppin, Boog, and Boog style. Poppin is a continuous flexing and releasing of the muscles in your neck, body(chest, back), arms(biceps, triceps, forearms), and legs(buttocks, thighs, calf muscles). If you are a Popper, according to Sam's definition, dancing at a Poppin competition you cannot wave. You strictly Pop. If you wave, from the definition given, then you are considered Boog stylin. If you are Poppin and then you Scarecrow, you are no longer Poppin, but Boog stylin.
Popping is still having that "feel" like in Boog, hitting all muscles patiently, walking your arms, sitting hard inside the music, being simple, funky, smooth, doing walkouts, twist-o-flexes, master-flexes, egyptian twists, romeo twists, neck-o-flexes, and fresno.

A dance style that hails from California from which the originators are many, which is not to be confused with or to be related to boog aka boogaloo who's originator was Boogaloo Sam aka Sam Solomon, boogaloo is not popping as a whole. There are many different styles of popping that have many different originators most of which resided in Cali when the popping movement first took off in the U.S. making it also harder to distinguish when popping actually started to become popping.

Those cats back in the day sure knew how to get down popping and locking the way they do.
