Dear PICKUPDANCE Student, We're excited to announce our new locking program. Locking is a funk-style street dance that works really well for funk and disco inspired music. Funk music has never died, and you'll constantly hear funk-inspired music in Top 40 tracks, such as in our previously released lesson for Justin Timberlake's single "Can...

In this EDM/House Dance lesson, we'll dance to the chart topping hit  "This Is What You Came For" by Calvin Harris featuring Rihanna.  The song switches between a pretty clubby verse to an extremely catchy classic-house style chorus.  Since we've done so many practices, this one is going to step it up with some advanced...
