Step into your Waacking Superhero
with Princess Lockerooo presented by House of Yes
Waacking is a dance form born on the gay clubs of 1970s Los Angeles and was inspired by movie stars like Greta Garbo, Marilyn Monroe & disco divas like Diana Ross, and is performed to classic underground Disco. Waacking is all about being yourself. This metamorphic dance experience is not only a chance for you to learn about the heritage of Waacking, but a chance for you to be real with yourself, and discover parts of yourself that you don’t usually express.
I will teach you how to hear, experience and respond to music in a whole new way. I will teach you how to connect with your inner diva and wear confidence on your sleeve. I will not teach you how to dance like me, but rather I will fill you with inspiration and create the space for you to dance like yourself. This will be a serious arm workout. I will also give you an optional Home-Waack assignment for those that want to take this to the next level.
WAACKING WARM UP (15 min) - A series of drills / exercises and steps to help you download the basics. This portion might be more challenging for some than others. The important thing is to go at your own pace and enjoy the ride.
POSES (15 min) - We will analyze poses from magazines and try to recreate them. We will assess the intention behind the poses and learn how to communicate that emotion with our bodies.
MUSICALITY (30 min) - Lockerooo Demonstration. We will listen deeply and learn to identify layers in music and how to dance to the sounds we hear.
CHARACTER (15 min) - Building on the musicality and the poses we learned, we will apply different characters to our movement and see how we are affected. Here is where we use our props, Waack our wardrobe and let it all hang out!
FREESTYLE / WAACKERSATION (15 min) - Sumizing the entire class, we will come together to communicate through movement. We will have a Waackersation and perform the music.
