Princess Lockerooo & The Fabulous Waack Dancers
August 24, 2024

The outdoor Henry J. Leir Stage hosts Princess Lockerooo & The Fabulous Waack Dancers for a special one-night-only performance on August 24. This performance includes a “Choose What You Pay” ticketing option, with a suggested ticket price of $25.

Audiences who have caught Princess Lockerooo performing at recent Jacob’s Pillow parties and events know one thing for sure: that she is “a whirling force with a singular focus: spreading the gospel of Waacking.” (The New York Times). A legend in the New York scene, Lockerooo and a group of remarkable dancers will take the Leir Stage with a performance called The Big Show, which touches on jazz, disco, soul, R&B, pop music, and the blues, while pulling in theatrical choreography, elements of comedy and drag, and incredible costumes. This all-ages show explores the evolution and origin of waacking—a street dance style created in gay clubs of the ‘70s disco era—in utterly delightful ways.
