From Strawberry KS
If you've had trouble learning locking from scouring tutorials and foraging forums for advice, then not long from now you'll be able to BURY these problems once and for all.
Learning to lock on your own with minimal help can be an incredibly frustrating experience, even a dream destroyer.
You get to learning and then discover...
- There are no teachers where you live or within travelling distance (IMPOSSIBLE TO LEARN)
- You try learning from long written descriptions (DIFFICULT TO LEARN)
- You find some tutorials but they are all taught from the front so you have to try and reverse everything around (CONFUSING TO LEARN)
- You learn some moves but they don't feel or look right and you don't know how you're supposed to use them (FRUSTRATING TO LEARN)
- You have no idea how to make the moves look funky (UNREWARDING TO LEARN + THE DEATH OF YOUR LOCKING)
You read that right if it's not funky, then your locking is DEAD! It is the plant without water or the watermelon without the water. It ceases to exist in any meaningful way.
I've seen some of the tutorials up on YouTube, heck I've even put a few of them up there myself! I'm the guy that teaches at the studio that says Chokolate in case you're not aware.
The biggest drawback to teaching on there though is that you only get the moves, and in 10 minutes you cannot get the full message of what it takes to learn locking.
And a large part of learning locking is the TRAINING you put yourself through. Learning the different skills and really working them so they all tie in nicely together and are not a mish mash of randomly assembled moves.
If you don't do this you'll have bits of information and moves, not a way of moving.
The only way to counteract this problem is by attending locking classes or a course. Of course this is not within reach of everyone but a lot of people do have a computer!
This is the reason I created the Advanced Locking Program. It contains most of the moves you've probably heard of and want to know, but it's not just about that. It's also about learning how you can "work the moves" and hone them to flawless execution in your practice time.
It's about doing the work necessary to become a locker, and not just being a casual learner. It's about understanding the FUNK and GROOVES so that even if you've never attended a locking class in your life, you can still lock!
So in other words it's gonna be hard work - 15 days of training to be precise! But it's not as hard work as spending the next year looking out for tutorials and videos and trying to piece them all together.
The funk is vitally important in locking and must not be faked...however it can easily be confused with other similar things as this short video shows...
This is just one of the distinctions you'll be learning about and it's important because...
That's right! Contrary to what some people will have you believe there are no 'secrets' in locking. All you need to know is...
How to lock, how to groove, how to be funky, how to be yourself when you dance. That's it.
Locking started with just a few basic moves and it was the DANCERS that brought all these extra steps in. But what did the moves have in common? They were all funky! Even though they all looked different when doing them.
So it's really pretty simple, you just need to work the elements above. And work them hard! Then bring some of yourself to the dance as it's really about what you have to offer as an individual dancer. There will never be another dancer exactly like you.
And that's why I created the Advanced Locking Program. To provide you with the training and skills so you can then find your own identity as a dancer. And continue to spread locking around the world in the process!
This is going to be a 7 DVD program of advanced training. It was initially designed to be a follow up to the beginners DVD 'Introduction To Locking'.
However once I got underway with filming for the new DVD's I quickly realized something...
In order to keep the program as an Organic Learning Method it was necessary to re-cover some of what was done in 'Introduction To Locking'.
To keep the learning smooth and natural. So there were no major gaps in difficulty that could throw you off and destroy your confidence quickly.
And so the 15 day program was born. One where you DON'T NEED any prior locking experience and in just 15 days will be pulling off advanced locking moves...
If you have done 'Introduction To Locking', this program will teach you even more variations and ways of doing the moves.
There is more than one way of doing many locking moves (if a teacher ever tells you there is only one way of doing everything they are DENYING you of your self-expression).
It will then go on into the grooves and intermediate moves, before segueing into the more advanced locking moves. Most of the popular locking moves are covered such as...
Locks, Double Locks, Pacing, Claps, Giving Five, Airborn, Scoo Bot, Scooby Doo, Skeeter Rabbit, Scoo Bot Kick, Kicks, Grooves, Rock Steady, Leo Walk, Scooby Walk, Funky Guitar, 6 Step and others as well.
Also included are the favourite features from the 'Introduction To Locking' DVD: BACK VIEWS, DEMOS & SLO MOS.
A lot will be covered which is why it's a 15 day program. I didn't want you to just learn the moves, but work them so by the end of the program you can do them easily.
It's also important to spend a good amount of time on learning to groove as it's so important in locking. You will learn how to use your body, posture, body and hips to enable these grooves to happen and "let the funk flow" as you're doing them.
An interesting thing happens when you WORK the moves as opposed to just learning them...
Something called your MUSCLE MEMORY kicks right into gear. What happens is your muscles start remembering the movements and how they are executed so after a certain period of time you WON'T even need to think about how to do them!
Can I even start to explain the benefits of having this happen to YOU??? This means that you can focus on EXPRESSING YOURSELF and staying funky, being in tune with the music and everything that's happening around you in your environment.
It gives you the freedom to become a more complete dancer, and the grooves you learn are just gonna kick that into orbit. So now you know the benefits of going through a training program such as this and how it will help you to learn easily and effectively.
