Beg. Locking Technique

Locking is based on the concept of freezing from a fast movement and “locking” in a certain position. This dance form was brought into public attention in the 1970s by Toni Basil and The Lockers on the nationally syndicated show “Soul Train”. Toni got them to be featured, and Don “Campbellock” Campbell created the dance. The movements are generally large and exaggerated, and often very rhythmic and tightly synced with funk music. Locking is performance oriented, often interacting with the audience by smiling or giving them a high five, and some moves are quite comical.

Beginning: A great place to start if you're interested in a new dance form or have never taken dance classes before. You will be taken through the basic elements of dance, step by step, so you will have a better understanding of the movement and eventually be ready for the next level of classes. This may include rhythm, counting, body isolations, placement, repetition of movements, applying foundational knowledge into dance combinations & common vocabulary.

Choreography & Technique Classes focus on detailed choreography and technique. These classes typically involve more precise and challenging movements than the cardio classes.
