What is Locking?

Locking was created around the late 60s/early 70s by Don Campbell. It stemmed from the different soul and funk dances of that era. The TV show, “Soul Train” featured dancers that did this social dance. It is a Funk dance style mixed with street dance styles of that time. is a combination of fast and distinct arm and hand movements with more relaxed hips and legs. The movements are generally large and exaggerated, and are often very rhythmic and closely synchronized to the music.
