Why Do they Call you Queen TuT?
Fascinated by the love of my favorite hip hop dance technique "Tutting". I have
dedicated my training around popping dance styles. Not to be confused with King TuT as
deep as the history is, it is way simpler! Queen TuT is the divine right to master
my craft. Any of us can be a King or Queen Of our craft. What is yours?
(v) The style was originally practiced by young funk dancers and is derived from the positions people were drawn in the days of the Ancient Egyptians. It is these positions seen in these portraits that have been adopted by dancers today. So when you “tut” you change the angles of your arms according to the beat. Those who are more experienced pop when changing from angle to angle thus refining the style. Tutting is still a greatly respected move and King Tut aka Mark Benson is widely acclaimed for pioneering the style
