Popping

Boogaloo Sam loi popping tyylin 70-luvulla Fresnossa Kaliforniassa. Popping on funkstyles katutanssi jossa tanssija jännittää kehon eri lihaksia rytmiin eli biittiin saaden aikaan tärähdyksen, josta käytetään nimitystä pop.

Locking

Locking on katutanssilaji. Siinä tanssitaan funk- ja soulmusiikin tahdissa. Locking on funkmusiikkiin 1970-luvulla syntynyt energinen tanssi, joka sisältää humoristisia elementtejä. Lockingia voidaan tanssia yksin, pareittain tai ryhmänä yleisimmin funkmusiikin tahdittamana. Tanssille on ominaista liikkeen lukitseminen liioiteltuihin asentoihin, kuten The Muscle Man, The Lock ja Point, sekä rytmikkäät askeleet, kuten Leo Walk, jossa liike on koko kehossa. Don Campbell kehitti The Lockin, ja kaikki The Lockers ryhmän jäsenet toivat omia liikkeitä tanssiin. Tanssi tuli tutuksi suurelle yleisölle Soultrain tv-ohjelman myötä.
