This is another snippet of my forthcoming new single “Nightlife.’ “Princess Lockeroo” Samara Cohen is supreme in this dance video directed by Yak Films one of the most popular dance channels on YouTube.
Just a teaser instrumental of my forthcoming new single ‘Nightlife’. A few teens from around the world have snagged the music and started making short clips freestylin’ and waacking (my style) to it – I love it! This is from Hong Kong. It would be my dream to have the professional dancers perform this on ‘Dancing With The Stars’!
I’m not a trained dancer, singer nor writer – I do them all from my soul with my own distinct feel and style much like an improvisational jazz musician. There is a joy in dancing no matter the style. I’ve always loved it and always will – watching and doing.
It’s so incredible to see ‘Waacking’ continue to grow with a younger generation around the world. You just search Youtube, ‘Waacking’ and you will find battles and performances going on globally; fused with other elements including Hip-Hop, Propeller (created by Princess ‘Lockeroo’ Samara Cohen), Voguing, Punking and so on. The origins of ‘Waacking’ date back to the 70′s, my teen era. I was amongst a few girls who were doing it on the show; and was a member of dance troupe ‘The Outrageous Waack Dancers’, along with other Soul Train alums Tyrone Procter, Cleveland Moses Jr., and my former Shalamar colleague Jeffrey Daniel.
Viva la dance!
