As part of the Program in Dance’s spring 2021 co-curricular dance offerings, Princess Lockerooo leads a class on Waacking.

Curated by Princeton alum Lauren Auyeung ’19, this class series develops a diverse understanding of hip-hop’s foundational forms. With an emphasis on physical techniques, the course exposes dancers to the many dance forms that exist under the umbrella of hip-hop. Through the course, students will understand the basics of hip-hop’s form and will also be challenged to synthesize elements of groove, musicality, texture, footwork, and personal expression in their own individual improvisation.

These classes are open to all University students, alumni, faculty, and staff.


To take advantage of our unique class offerings and virtually train with professionals outside of coursework, visit the Co-Curricular Offerings page for more information on each class. Participants will need to log in to the Hip-Hop class page with Princeton University ID to get the Zoom link.

Princeton alumni who wish to participate should email Cindy Rosenfeld:
