Physical Education KS2: The 'point and lock' in street dance
Lizzie from Alesha’s Street Dance stars teaches points and locks as used in locking.
She starts by explaining the technical move of locking.
She then breaks down the points, focusing on taking the point from the shoulder to the diagonal.
She then breaks down the second move, which is the lock.
Music is added while she performs the point and lock to the beat.
This clip is from the series Street Dance Masterclass.
The movement can be broken down and incorporated into any dance piece to demonstrate locking.
It's a short but useful linking move which could be demonstrated in question and answer phrasing by pairs of pupils.
This clip will be relevant for teaching Physical Education or Dance at Key Stage 2 or Second Year in Scotland.
