Locking by Bryan Kang

Where: Free Movement Dance Studio
For: Beginner Adults, no experience needed
Locking is a dance created in 1970 by Don Campbell, danced to the funk music of that era. Largely based off the actions we would do on a day-to-day basis, Locking comprises of simple, easy-to-learn movements, combined with rhythm, stops, characterisation, even featuring props and acrobatics! A dance that is built on a core of improvisation, Locking is centred around the idea of a Lock, where the Dancer comes to a total halt in movement in the middle of their set. As Don Campbell would say, “Do like me, but be you!”
