TRAINING PROGRAM

INSPIRING YOU TO LOVE WAACKING
BUILDING COMMUNITY, CONTINUING THE LEGACY

The Waack Dancers training program follows a comprehensive curriculum designed to train professional waack dancers. Waacking history is a key part of the syllabus. Homework & challenges will be given weekly to keep dancers inspired & training at home. Assignments and quizzes help students prepare for their midterm and final exams. 

FOUNDATION

Through a series of focused exercises, you will learn the techniques of fundamental waacking movement. Repetitive patterns, poses, and combinations that move across the floor, will build endurance, strength & muscle memory. You will gain a deep understanding of the mechanics of basic waacking techniques allowing you to create your own patterns.

HISTORY

You will study the historical background of Waacking, learning about the inspirations & origins of the dance, the social climate of the time, and the people who created and pioneered the dance through the 70s 80s, and the 2000s.  Students will watch clips of “Soul Train,” ”The Outrageous Waack Dancers” “Tyrone Proctor” and more.

 

MUSICALITY

You will be given a new approach to music analysis and understanding of how to recognize and anticipate instrumental patterns in music.  You will learn to understand and interpret the music rhythmically and emotionally to become the living embodiment of the music, all the while applying your own natural abilities. 

This training will give you the skills to interpret music while freestyling and react spontaneously, using creative and honest movement to illustrate what you hear.

PERFORMANCE

Theatrical exercises will teach students how to tell a story while freestyling, making their dancing entertaining and captivating. The freestyle aspect of Waacking explores the development of each individual's physical capabilities within the dance. Students learn how to illustrate emotions, embody characters & communicate through their movement, all the while being a precise visual representation of the music. 

TRANSFORMATION

Waacking is a journey of self-discovery!

To waack, one must have confidence! 

Therefore, through this dance, transformation is inevitable.
