How to Do Hip-Hop Locking Points

Learn how to do locking points in this Howcast hip-hop dance video featuring choreographer Jarrieth Patterson.


All right, so, we just did wrist rolls, now we're going to work on points.

Now points is just basically doing this. All right? But what you want to do is you want to put it into a dance style. All right? It's called locking. So when you're locking, it's like you lock, you see that? It's different, it's not just being still, it's just being still and then you point. All right?

Now watch my legs. You see how my legs are kinda pointing out at the same time? It's like I'm running in place, I'm just doing this. All right? Now we get a little rubber stance going, but you just hit, hit, you point, you don't have to point with the opposite leg or the right, you can point whatever way you feel comfortable. This way, you can go that way, you can go this way, you can go boom, boom, hah, hah, all right?

A certain angle is a certain movement, all right? It's not specific, it's not strict, it's however you feel like you want to do it, all right? Be you. So point, point, point, point, point, see that? I didn't move my legs that time. See? I did my own thing. I got creative with it. All right? So like point, point, point, point, point, point, any way you want, all right? It just helps you, it's like hey, like you, you, what's up? You over there, what? All right? So just think about it, it's like hah, all right? Sort of just have fun, put your personality in it, all right? You don't have to be at a certain angle to point, just point, point, point, point, all right? Be you.
