WAACKING is a fiery and expressive dance that began in the early 1970’s heavily influenced by the funk and disco era in the disco clubs of Los Angeles. The style originally played on imitating silent film stars' over-dramatic gestures by utilizing complex arm movements, lines, and poses.
The class will be focused on the different elements that compose waacking: foundations, drills, grove, pose, character, musicality, footwork and freestyle. The Students will be pushed to find their own personality within the steps and express their self through the dance.
