General Informations

LOCKING belongs to the dance style Hip-Hop.

Locking is danced to funk music. Locking is a dance that originated in theearly 1970s in dance clubs in Los Angeles. Locking has a defined as a set of movements determined by certain steps and moves (called locks). The movements are danced expansively and usually dynamically as well.

Helpful prerequisites:

  • Experience with movement and music
  • Examples from the category: "Short Dances"

Tips for implementation:

  • If sequences are performed with a partner, integrate changing partners so that students don`t always dance with the same partner.
  • Different forms of organisations add variety and take some pressure off the teacher as the "presenter".
  • Play some music during the practice phase (motivation). The sound volume can be varied.

Further steps:

  • Putting together 2-3 movements can already result in a small combination suitable for a class.
  • Students can show their own moves related to the theme that they either already know or have created or arranged within their groups.

Tips relating to the music: further information can be found under the heading "Tips & methods" > Music   

  • For this example, several different music pieces are suitable. A clear rhythm with between 70 - 90 beats per minute (BPM) is helpful.
  • Good, motivating music is very important. Use songs that are currently popular every now and then. Bring faster and slower music to the lesson. These add variety and motivation to lessons.
