Views: 138195 Description: /!\ The video is more orientated towards Int/Adv Waackers (or curious beginners) that are already familiar with the dance and want a closer look at the basic technique.
Watch it until the end, I wrote few things that are important for me to tell you.
I really hope this video will be of great help for those of you that want to learn the dance "correctly". Keep practicing is the key ! Experience, travel, take classes/workshops, learn the history, feel the music, be open-minded, discover new dances that are challenging for you, etc... everything will make your dance grow.
Also, listen to the music on which the dance was created. For Waacking, it's Disco music.(Artists like Cheryl Lynn, Quartz, Donna summer, etc...)
After and only after that, you can make a transition to other types of music (a wide range from house, afro beats,... to commercial stuff) and have a lot of fun ;)
And most importantly, BE YOU !
Those 5 basics are only some of the most used (if I have the time, I will try to upload more of them :D)
There's a huge benefit on practicing those basics everyday ! (on your warm up for example)
And try to execute the moves differently : On the video, when the music gets fast , I was focus on power and precision but I could have been more relax with my arms too. It's important to work
on dynamics and textures in your dance. There a lot to say , I didn't even say the quarter lol Anyway, if you want to go further, find variations of those basics or try 2 different basic arms at the same time (eg : basic 1 on the left arm and basic 2 on the right, etc...). You can play around a lot with just the ones I've introduced to you in this video ! Take risks ;)
Thank you for watching !
