Don “Campbellock” Campbell Tribute
Today the Dance Community mourns the death of a legend. He created Locking, a dance that is now under the umbrella of Hip-Hop Dance. He spread the rare message of honest self expression in the absence of external approval.
He was an extraordinary individual with an extraordinary message and the joy he felt when being himself is what we take with us when we move. Anger will never move us as gracefully as Self-Love.
Thank you Don Campbell.
R.I.P. Don Campbell
Your life and legacy has seeds in the foundation of Beatbox Lifestyle. Not only because you were a fighter yourself, but you encouraged a new generation to see ourselves as capable, creative and worthy, no matter how much or how little others accepted us. You encouraged us to dig deeper in expressing ourselves without fear. We hope that in all the competitions that locking has sparked, that your message is truly being heard. We will continue to spread it. Thank you Don Campbell.
The BeatBox Lifestyle Family.

He then recruited other dancers who had been removed for the same reason, and with them founded the Lockers.
Don recorded a song appropriately titled, “The Campbellock”, to go with his new high-flying, groundbreaking new dance, in March 1972 Stanson Records released his single “the Campbellock”.
