Krumping is a style of street dance created in the early 2000s by Ceasare "Tight Eyes" Willis and Jo'Artis "Big Mijo" Ratti in South Central, Los Angeles, California. The dance style originates from Clowning or C-Dancing which was created by Thomas "Tommy the Clown" Johnson as a form of entertainment at parties. Willis and Ratti originally danced with Johnson but were considered too rugged and raw so moved away from this style of dance as a way to express themselves. Krumping is also used as an outlet, escape, and an alternative to gang culture.

Krumping is characterised by energetic, powerful, sharp and quick movements which can come across as aggressive although this is better described as passion and commitment.

Krumping was featured on the documentary RIZE directed by Dave LaChapelle and today krumping can be seen being performed worldwide in stage and in music videos.

Voguing was created in 1980s Harlem, New York by Black and Latinx LGBTQ+ communities. It is a highly stylised dance style that involves hand gestures which tell their own stories and create a sense of identity and belonging.

In the 1960s and 80s drag balls changed from paegents to voguing battles where contestants would compete for trophies and the reputation of their 'house family'. These families were a place where people marginalised by gender, sexuality and race could go to for acceptance and a safe space.

Over time voguing changed from The Old Way of static poses and sharp angles to a more fluid and flexible style called The New Way which include moves such as the duckwalk and catwalk as well as spins and dips. Today, more styles of voguing have emerged such as Vogue Femme which includes intricate postures, hair whips and death drops. Even with all these different styles, voguing remains a form of expression and identity.

Locking is a style based on freezing or "locking" movements. It is a performance orientated style which was created by Don Campbell in the late 1960s in LA.

Originally, he created the movement by accident when he stopped moving his arms and couldn't remember the next move, creating the signature locking movement. This type of movement soon become popular when Campbell added them into his performances and many others such as Jimmy "Scoo B Doo" Foster and Damita Jo Freeman began to integrate these movements into their own dance styles. The style was originally known as the "Campbellock" and was further popularised on the TV show 'Soul Train' in 1971 where Campbell performed. Since then groups of lockers have been formed, such as Campbell's own group "The Campbellockers" which was created alongside Toni Basil. The name of the style was shortened to locking in the 1970s after a dispute between Campbell and a record company who he had recorded a song with about the dance.

Some other signature moves are wrist rolls, snapping fingers, and points.

✨ Happy Black History Month!!! ✨

In the UK we celebrate Black History month in October! This month is dedicated to celebrating Black history and culture, and as most dance styles have their roots in Black history, we will be exploring the origins and influences of Black culture on different types of street dance throughout the month!

We will also be donating the profits of our classes this October to Stop Hate UK! They are the only charity in the UK who provide a free 24 hour helpline and reporting service to those affected by hate crimes. They work to support those affected by hate and discrimination as well as producing education programmes and campaigning for change.

Keep an eye out for the posts coming soon!
