We propose and study dynamic versions of the classical flexibility constructs skip and block and motivate and define a formal semantics for them. We show that our semantics for dynamic blocking is a generalization of classical dead-path-elimination and solves the long-standing open problem to define dead-path-elimination for cyclic workflows. This gives rise to a simple and fully local
semantics for inclusive gateways.
