Strobing (also hitting or ticking) is a popping dance technique giving the impression that the dancer is moving within a strobe light setting or a low-framerate movie.

To produce this effect, a dancer will tense his body and take any ordinary movement in conjunction with quick, short stop-and-go movements, i.e., a dancer may make a simple move such as waving to the audience, but in a strobing motion. Mastering strobing requires perfect timing and distance between each movement. Doing the movements in pace with the music will help accomplish this and intensify the illusion of discrete steps.
