“Participating in battles should be fun and inspiring. Competitors should leave feeling expressed and proud of thier efforts with a clear sense of what their strengths are and what they can do grow”. – Princess Lockeroo
This event is a celebration of the re-emergence of Waacking around the world, a dance that originated in the 1970’s and has experienced an international revival via the efforts of Tyrone “The Bone” Proctor (Legendary Soul Train Dancer ) and Princess Lockerooo (So You Think You Can Dance, Madonna, Icona Pop) whom have taught thousands of students all over Asia, Europe, Canada, Australasia and UK. This momentous event will attract the top talent from around the world to New York City to battle for the ultimate championship title.
