Many of us think that it is the who did what in history which is the most important, however the reasons causes and enviormental conditions always affect the creations, Those conditions which existed in the ORIGINAL locking era are what inspired the Dance to ever exist. these conditions inspired a dance movement or or streetdance revolution,The need to feel apart of something which was not controled by the elite or wealthy, the need to be free and create , along with the need to share were at the forefront of what was produced. the Dance itself developed because of these needs. Today many want to separate because of the ORIGINAL cultural heritage that the artform of Locking evolved from, Let us be true to its heritage from the AFRICAN AMERICAN ROOTS, the music, moves and original purpose are all facts from those roots. The remakable thing abot locking is that those purposes were identified and felt by non african americans also .who banded together to create a multicultural movement supporting a togetherness which we struggle for today.
