For her, preserving and emphasizing the culture and history is of utmost importance. She does this by creating a channel of entertainment that celebrates enlightenment, elegance, and sensuality without the objectification of artists or the modification of their intentions.

Her dramatic costumes, charismatic presence, memorable music, and distinctive dancing leaves audiences craving more!  She is an icon in the New York City House Music / dance scene and is also taking the music industry by storm with her new single, “Dance, Dance, Dance.”

In addition, this dynamic diva has been an advocate of restoring the former glory of the popular and expressive 1970’s Disco Era dance style, waacking, back into the spotlight. A student of the Legendary Soul Train dancer, Tyrone Proctor, Princess Lockerooo showcases the freestyling element of Waacking and encourages the development of the individual dancer to become a living embodiment of the music.

What they are saying about Princess Lockerooo

Love that you continue to tweak and revise. Your reflections about growing as a writer and producer are awesome as well. As you already know I think you are tremendous and an inspiration for so many including me – this far into my journey lol. Obstacles and disappointments are a part of it all of course – and like me you never let them get you down – you just keep going and being even more fabulous and wise.  That’s what it’s about. It’s in the music!!

Training

MALAYSIA Kuala Lumpur JPG

Princess Lockerooo is a student of the legendary Soul Train dancer Tyrone Proctor. Tyrone is responsible for the resurgence of waacking.

Waacking is rhythmic & dramatic dance.  Inspired by the famous movie stars of the early 1900s (Marilyn Monroe, Greta Garbo,) “posing” became an important element of waacking.  Dancers would accent the beats with elegant poses like the movie stars.

Musicality is an important element of waacking.  While many dance styles follow and accent the music, Waacking differs in that the dancer acts as the conductor, seemingly controlling the music.  Classic (Imported) Disco susic was the perfect vehicle for Waacking, with complex orchestrations, driving, syncopated rhythms, and dramatic changes.

When a dancer Waacks, he/she must physically embody the music, by matching his/her body movement to the rhythm and emotion of the music exactly.  This is done with fast arm/hand movements, dramatic poses, slow emotional movement to the instruments and vocals,  footwork, acrobatics across the floor and facial expressions.  Being that waacking is a freestyle dance, it may be interoperated differently.
