Five years ago I organized an event called Family Affair. Locking and waacking are two dances that many people consider brother/sister because of where they originated (LA in the 1970’s) We had two separate 1on1 battles for each and it was a very successful event.

This year I brought Family Affair back, but with an added twist! A 2on2 battle in which teams are composed of one locker and one waacker in a tag team style battle.

I’d like to give a great big thank you to everyone who made the Family Affair 2 weekend a success!

Disco Dave came to Montreal and taught a special popping & locking class on Oct 25th. Dave’s workshop was packed with many of the city’s poppers and lockers. There was some good vibes and Dave got down hard! Thank you Urban Element for the studio space.

As for the event itself. Wow! The venue was packed, there were 16 teams for the battle and people from Boston, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal were present. Shoutout to Dizzylock & Mystique and Sam I Am and Treklock for a great final battle (see video below). Trek and Sam took the win. Also thanks to the judges: Waackeisha and Disco Dave (see judge solo video below). DJ Ruby Jane and Dj Inyourface provided great music all night long. Wax and the Cabaret Playhouse staff were also great as well as our doorman for the night, Long. And finally, a very special thank you to PRINCE who was generous enough to host the event all night! As the evening progressed his clothes appeared to disappear! See you next year for Family Affair 3!!!

Big things, locking related, are happening in Montreal for the month of October!

5 years ago I organized an event called Family Affair. Locking and waacking are two dances that many people consider brother/sister because of where they originated (LA in the 1970’s) We had two separate 1on1 battles for each and it was a very successful event.

This year I am bringing Family Affair back, but with an added twist! There will be a 2on2 battle in which teams are composed of one locker and one waacker in a tag team style battle for $400. After the battle we will be having a Halloween jam with music by DJ RUBY JANE so costumes are encouraged!

Our two judges for the event are WAACKEISHA (IHOW Montreal) and DISCO DAVE (Rhythmatic Funk Movement & Boogie Brats NYC)

There will be a special Popping and Locking workshop on Oct 25 with Disco Dave
