"I started learning locking since 2010. Learnt in Japan, Taiwan and Korea mainly. Most of my locking teachers have been women! Locking for me is character, being confident, showmanship. Locking can help people become more free and energetic! And make you more confident on stage."
● What is locking? ●
Locking is a largely improvisational and funk dance style that originated in the 1970s. It’s mostly based on the concept of ‘locking’ movements; freezing from a fast movement and ‘locking’ in a certain position before continuing at the same speed. Locking is fun, vibrant and bound to put a smile on your face.
● 8 Week Locking Course at Crossover ●
May June is also going to be holding an 8 Week Locking Course focusing on improving your Locking. Crossover Dance Studios. 3 May to 17 May. Get on it!

For the other elements of hip hop culture, we hold D2Workshops taught by special guests. These guest instructors or whom we like to call "mentors" would share their knowledge and experience by giving insight and helping you in any way they can.
