Physical Education KS2: The 'leo walk' from street dance

Lizzie from Alesha's Street Dance Stars teaches the 'leo walk' as used in locking.

She begins by demonstrating the movement step by step, starting with the lower body and feet and adding the upper body and arms to finish.

The music is then played while she performs the 'leo walk' and gives teaching points.

This clip is from the series Street Dance Masterclass.

Teacher Notes

The movement can be broken down and incorporated into any dance piece to demonstrate locking.

It's a tricky move which pupils will probably be able to pick up just by mirroring Lizzie's sequence.

Curriculum Notes

This clip will be relevant for teaching Physical Education or Dance at Key Stage 2 or Second Year in Scotland.
