because you should know: the lockers

Don Campbell may not be a familiar name to many, but he should.  Around the 1960s, he combined elements of existing dances and combined them with funk elements (and a few of his own moves) to create the style of dance known today as LOCKING.

Fred Berry, known by many old-schoolers & avid TV watchers as “Rerun” on the show What’s Happening!, was also a member of this group.  Take a look at this clip – aired on August 26, 1976 – and see a set of dancers who were ahead of their time.

What’s Happening! – Episode 3, “My Three Tons” – Originally Aired August 26, 1976.
