Waacking originated in the 70 ́s in the Gay, Hispanic and Black Club scene in Los Angeles. Born in the Disco era its biggest inspiration is Hollywood of the 30 ́s, 40 ́s. In other terms: silent films, musical features, the grace of Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Dietrich, comedy of Charlie Chaplin, art of Bruce Lee, creativity of Looney Tunes, Cartoons, King Kong and many more have given rise to the style. Soul Train gave Waacking a possibility to evolve and spread publicly even more. Starting off as „punking“- the expression from opression- it has become a funky and incredible danceform embodying storytelling through music.
Waacking is all about drama, class, elegance, being glamorous. You are the music and show your story with your body as if you are THE actor/ actress of a silent movie.
