Michael developed his style of dancing from many different influences, but most of his early learning came from two notable teachers. They were Poppin' Taco and Boogaloo Shrimp. Poppin' Taco was Michael Jackson's artistic consultant for almost sixteen years. He taught him many moves that became the pop star's standard in concerts and live performances.

A well-known example is his King Cobra. Boogaloo Shrimp is said to have introduced Michael to the backslide. During Motown’s 25th Anniversary Michael performed Billie Jean and did the moonwalk, which became his signature dance move. He also learned a lot from watching his favorite idol, James Brown.
