does anyone have any clips of wacking? i've only seen a short clips of people doing it, yoshie - a japanese locker that sometimes mixes wacking in her locking routines and in some house dance clips. i would appreciate it if anyone could put some up if anyone has any... someone over in house asked for some awhile back but no one replied.

oh and can anyone do explain or do a tutorial on the fundamentals of wacking? and what's the history of it? thanks in advance!

Hello: my stage name is Angel and I'm a fortunate Pioneer in What many dancers unfortunately called Punkin Wacking, Wacking is not the original Name That name started to come out in the early 80's How i know you may ask youself, I had the plasure of meeting some of the Originals of Punkin in the 1970's at some of the underground clubs of L.A. and Hollywood And a few clubs of the mainstream Punkin was discovered in the Gay underground night clubs/Discoteques of L.A and reached the mainstream as straight dancers pushed Punkin forward I personally took the Momentaum the fill from it and made it more masquline as i felt it could be danced to me for me.Some of Originals Are Aurther Andrew, A Dancer called Tinker, (R.I.P.)Lanny,and Aka. Micheal Angelo, I dont know were they are now as far as the originals. Now Pioneers are Shabbado and female and Male dancers from Dancing Machine Which was created in 1975 By Jeff Kutach, and which know is called Splash in Las Vegas, But back in the 70's and early 80's the member of dancing machine some of them were Gino, Dino SugarBop, Fast Freddy of the girls there was Topaz Lanette, Diane, Flame, Dallas, Ana Sanchez,That i can remember right know and That i new of from the 70's. I just finished giving a Punkin presentation at Culture Shock Los Angeles on January 22,
Which i must say was to me a great memorable experience It was an honor bieng a part of H4 hip hop has History. It was recorded so i would like to present Punkin to all of you out there that are interested in learning more about this fairly new style to the new generation but was created many years ago.
I also have a website which is angelsclassicdancers.com I'm going to do some modification and add on's but please send me and email or sign my guest book so i can keep everyone informed i Hope i have shade some light on a Punkin HIstory I do believe that history should be preserved with it true meaning and evolution and keeping the name true to the art form.
PLease if you have any more questions which i hope you do have I will be more then happy to answer.

I hope to get to know some of you out there that are interested in Punkin or other styles i may shade light on. I hope I'm not disrespecting being that this is a locker forum but i just wanted to answer this question to you.

Much respect
Angel.

If you go to housedancer.com they have a clip of Archie Burnett doing some wacking and voguing. You must click on media clips then click on archie. It's not much wacking but he does do it. And it's good.

I thought that this was a cute pic to show the friendlyness of highland dancers! I also really like #365's tartan!! Does anyone know these dancers. I belive they are from Sask. but not sure.
