18 Dance Workout Videos on YouTube to Shake Up Your At-Home Cardio
Shake up your at-home cardio with these picks from the pros.
By Emily Shiffer
If your at-home workout routine has gotten a little stale—and to be honest, many of ours have—trying some dance workout videos at home can help breathe a little new life into it. Not only is it just plain fun, but it can also provide a bit of a mental boost too.
“Dance is a form of full-body expression, which is why dance workouts are such a great way to relieve stress,” physical therapist Laurence Agénor, P.T., D.P.T., C.S.C.S, a barre, Pilates, and dance instructor in New York City, tells SELF. “A dance workout is rooted in the music. Music and coordinated movement are incredibly therapeutic. Dance allows you to get into your body and out of your head, all while expressing your creativity and grooving to the beat.”
And while you may not be able to catch your favorite dance class in-studio right now, there are still tons of options for you online. Yep, you still can get in a great cardio workout without going to the gym or studio, even if you don’t want to run, walk, or bike outside, or do HIIT workouts in your living room.
“The convenience of being able to get up from your desk and sweat it out without leaving your home is unparalleled,” says Agénor. “A dance workout is a fun and effective way to break up your day when working from home and boost your endorphins to the rhythm of the beat.”
If you’re new to dance workouts or aren’t tied to a particular workout app, YouTube can come in clutch for tons of dance workout videos—whether you’re looking for quick, one-song routines or a full dance workout.
“YouTube has a variety of dance-inspired workouts that you can choose from depending on your mood and time restrictions,” says Agénor. “The best part is, they’re all free!” Huge win.

How It Works
Get ready to hit the dance floor! Dancing is a whole-body workout that's actually fun.
It's good for your heart, it makes you stronger, and it can help with balance and coordination.
A 30-minute dance class burns between 130 and 250 calories, about the same as jogging.
Sign up for a class. Your teacher will lead you through a series of choreographed steps. The focus might be on the footwork, but the series of leaps, turns, shimmies, and cha-chas engage the entire body.
There are lots of options. With dance-inspired workouts ranging from ballroom and ballet to hip hop and club dance classes, you’ll never be bored!
Intensity Level: Medium
The intensity depends on the type of dance you choose. Fast-moving dance styles like hip hop and salsa are more intense than slower dances like the tango or waltz. All of them will use your whole body and will challenge your brain as you learn the choreography and form.
Areas It Targets
Core: Yes. Depending on the type of dance you choose, some of the steps/moves will engage the core muscles.
Arms: Yes. Although most dances focus on your lower body, you're also using your arms.
Legs: Yes. The choreography will have you doing moves that work your lower body, including your quads and hamstrings.
Glutes: Yes. Hip hop dancing and ballet include moves that engage the glutes.
Back: Yes. Dance uses your core muscles, including those in your back.
Flexibility: Yes. Most dance-inspired workouts include moves that improve flexibility.
Aerobic: Yes. Dancing raises your heart rate. The more up-tempo the dance style, the better it is for your heart.
Strength: Yes. You won't be lifting weights, but your body weight counts, helping to build muscle strength.
Sport: No. You can enter dance competitions, but dance can be purely social or artistic.
Low-Impact: Yes. Dancing can be a high-or low-impact workout depending on the style of dancing.
What Else Should I Know?
Cost: Free if you already know how, or the cost of classes if you want lessons at a studio.
Good for beginners? Yes. There are dance classes aimed at beginners. If you're just starting out, give yourself time to learn the moves. It doesn't happen overnight, but it will happen eventually!
Outdoors: No. Most dance classes are taught in studios.
At home: Yes. You can dance anywhere.
Equipment required? It depends. Some classes will require specific shoes; for others (like hip hop) all you need are sneakers.
What Physical Therapist Ross Brakeville Says:
Depending on the style, you can improve your heart health, joint mobility, strength, balance/coordination, and an overall sense of well-being, making dance good for most everyone. If you can't afford classes, try a dance workout DVD or follow an online video at home.
If you have a medical condition such as diabetes or high blood pressure, take note of how you feel before, during, and after dancing. If you're not feeling right or it takes more than a few minutes to get back to "normal," check with your doctor before continuing.
Is It Good for Me If I Have a Health Condition?
Dancing is a fantastic activity if you have medical conditions such as heart disease, high cholesterol, or diabetes.
Dancing more intensely, for a longer time, is more of a workout for your heart. You can choose the dance style and intensity level that meets your needs. Your doctor can let you know what's OK.
If you have an injury, let it heal before you start dancing. If you have other physical limitations, you may have more options than you think. Integrated, or inclusive dance, introduced in the 1960s, is for people with physical and mental limitations. There are dance companies that include dancers in wheelchairs, for instance.
How to learn to dance twerk - Lifehacker
November 21, 2020LikbezSports and fitness
The size of the priests does not matter!
Author of Lifehacker, athlete, Candidate Master of Sports
Twerk is just a super sexy dance that will pump your plasticity, and at the same time load your abs and back muscles well. To begin with, we will learn a few basic movements, and then we will diversify the dance vocabulary and analyze the main mistakes. And at the end you will find a bonus in the form of a playlist with suitable music.
If you have problems with your lumbar spine, exercise with caution, or better yet, consult your doctor.
Learn how to do basic elements
Booty pop back
Stand with your feet wider than shoulder width, toes slightly apart. Bend your knees and place your hands on your hips, turning them inward with your fingers, bend your lower back.
From this position, twist the pelvis down, and then, due to the deflection in the lower back, return it to its original position. Imagine that you are trying to reach the top of your head with your pelvis.
It is important to fix the upper back and work only on the lower back. You can not strain the gluteal muscles, otherwise the movement will turn out to be clamped.
If difficulties arise, try the lead-in exercise first. Place your hands on your hips so that your middle fingers rest on the protruding bones of the pelvis in front, and your thumbs - behind, closer to the sacrum. Bend your knees, move your pelvis down and then up, controlling the movement with your hands.
When you feel more confident, remove your hands and connect the movement with your knees. When the pelvis goes down, the knees bend, when it rises, they unbend. No need to lock the knees at the extreme point, they should remain slightly bent.
The pelvis moves back not only due to the straightening of the knees. The lower back must work.
Front booty pop
This movement is very similar to the previous one, only the emphasis is on pushing the pelvis forward rather than backward.
Stand with your feet wide and point your toes slightly out. You can put your hands on your hips to better feel the tilt. At the same time, bend your knees and sharply move your pelvis forward so that your butt goes down, and then bend your lower back and bring your pelvis back.
The emphasis is on the first phase of the movement, when the butt goes down. It is important at this moment not to pinch the buttocks, but to change the position of the pelvis due to the tension of the abdominal muscles.
Try other twerk moves
This element repeats the usual booty pop, only the movement of the pelvis in it is double: down-down, up-up.
Stand with your feet wider than shoulder width. At the same time, turn one leg with your toe and knee out and transfer your weight to the opposite thigh. Then, with a small jump, switch sides.
First try to move slowly to get the point, then speed up. Jump relaxed.
Up down twerk
Arch your lower back and push your pelvis back. On the count of “one”, simultaneously round the lower back, bringing the pelvis forward, bend the knees and bring the shoulders forward. On the count of "two", bend your lower back and take your ass back in a semi-squat.
On the count of three, straighten your knees, round your lower back, and roll your shoulders forward. On the count of four, arch your back in the thoracic region, straightening your shoulders.
It turns out that at the lower point you bend in the lower back, and at the top - in the chest.
To feel the movement, start slowly. Place your feet shoulder-width apart, place your palms opposite the pelvis. In turn, touch the palms with one or the other bone of the pelvis. Accelerate gradually.
You can wobble while standing upright or bent over. Practice slowly bending over and back up as you move. Important: you should not pinch, otherwise stiffness will occur and no shaking will work.
Get into a twerk stance, lower your right thigh first, then your left thigh. Then, one by one, lift them up to their original position. At first, perform the elements slowly, with fixation at each point, and then gradually accelerate.
You can do this movement a little higher. In this case, start with a stance on straight legs in an incline. In the same way, lower the right and left hips in turn, bending the knees, and then raise the hips, straightening the legs.
Rise up on your toes and turn your heels in and out a little. Arch your lower back, try to relax your hips as much as possible.
This element can be performed in a straight position or bent over, moving both legs at once, or one at a time.
Stand with your feet slightly wider than your shoulders, point your toes forward, tilt your body and rest your hands on your hips. Rotate your pelvis, lowering and raising it as you go.
You can do this either in a bent over position on your hips or standing up.
Start in a twerk position with your toes pointing forward. Do one regular booty pop in place, then another with the toes and knees turned out to the sides, and then the next one with them returning to a straight position.
Continue turning your toes and knees out and back, tilting your pelvis as you move.
Place your feet shoulder-width apart, rise on your toes. Pull your pelvis back a little. Move quickly from foot to foot, trying to relax your buttocks.
Raise your right leg to the side, turn it with your toe and knee inward. From this position, simultaneously transfer the weight to the left thigh and turn the raised leg with the toe outward. Return your foot to the floor and repeat on the other side.
Try moving in other positions
Twerk can be danced not only while standing, but also while squatting, on all fours and even upside down on your hands, with your feet supported against the wall. Try different positions - this will help diversify your dance.
This is the same booty pop, only squatting. If you don't have enough stretch to move freely in a deep squat, work on your hip mobility first.
Offset to one side
Good stretch is also required for this option. Otherwise, you will not be able to relax and move freely.
On all fours
First practice the standing element to get used to it. Raise one leg on the toe, turning it with the knee outward and at the same time leaning on the opposite thigh. Then smoothly switch sides.
Now place your palms on the floor, arch your lower back, bend your knees and lift your heels off the floor. Perform a familiar movement in a new position.
This is enough to get you started. Try, combine the movements with each other and, if something fails, correct the mistakes.
Understand why you don't succeed
There are three main reasons why instead of twerking you get some bullshit. And the size of the priests has nothing to do with it.
1. You lack flexibility
To twerk well, you must have good mobility in the lumbar spine and hips. If flexibility is lacking, you can improve it by doing stretching exercises.

2.You work your upper back and shoulders
All basic movements require arching in the lower back. It is due to the lower spine that you feed the pelvis back and forth. But if during booty pop you bend in the thoracic spine and connect your shoulders, the movement will not look like a twerk.
3. You're too tight
This is probably the biggest beginner's mistake, which results in a tight, wooden pelvic movement instead of sexual shaking.
Don't push yourself too hard, relax your buttocks and thighs, shake off tension from your arms and shoulders. All elements should be carried out easily and without clamps. The best way to relax and feel the movement is to turn on the music.
Pick up the music
We found a cool audio compilation that makes you want to dance to and not stop. The description on YouTube has the names of all the tracks.
And another big selection, this time from Yandex. Music. There are some great tracks too, and some of them are pretty slow paced so you can learn the moves in a relaxed and casual way.
Write in the comments how your twerking is going. It turns out?

Author of Lifehacker, athlete, CCM
This dance style includes a lot of freedom and improvisation. That is why he is so good. You can master the basic movements in a couple of hours, and then complicate them to infinity and combine them with each other, create your own combinations and spy on others.
Dance in sneakers, socks or barefoot, in any outfit, anywhere.
Master the basic movements of the shuffle
In this style, you do all the basic movements with your feet, the hands most often move freely - according to the heart.
This is the most basic and essential shuffle movement. You can do it in three different ways.
The movement begins by bending your knee and lifting one leg. Next, you need to simultaneously put both legs - supporting and raised - at a distance of one step from each other.
The raised leg is placed forward on a full foot, the standing one behind slips back on the ball of the foot and remains on it - the heel is not placed on the floor. The weight is evenly distributed between the two legs.
After that, it remains to return to the starting position. To do this, the front leg slides back, and at the same time, the back leg is pulled up. You find yourself in the starting position and repeat the cycle. The movement itself is soft and springy: do not stick into the floor, keep your legs relaxed.
This is a lighter and faster running man look that may be needed for some combinations. Here you put your foot not on the whole foot, but on the heel. At the same time, the one standing behind remains on the toe.
In this variation, the foot is placed forward on the pad. At the same time, the one standing behind also remains on the ball of the foot, and the body leans slightly back.
In this movement, one foot constantly makes a “herringbone” - turns the heel in and out - and the second touches the floor and immediately rises back.
When the heel of the skating leg turns inward, the toe of the other leg touches the floor; when outward, the other leg rises, turning the knee inward.
It turns out two positions: closed - when the legs are wrapped with the knees inward, and one leg is raised, and open - when the legs are turned out with the knees outward, and the toe touches the floor. Practice doing the T-step in both directions: slowly at first, then with acceleration.
You jump on one foot while the other touches the floor in different places: on the side of the supporting leg, across, behind - anywhere you want. You can put your foot on the toe or on the heel - the latter is called a kick. The supporting leg can simply rise low or perform a T-step - move the heel out and in.
To begin, you turn your knees and toes inward and lift one leg. Then turn your toes and knees outward, and put your raised leg forward crosswise. Repeat the same with the other leg.
All movement occurs on the balls of the feet, the heels do not fall to the floor. You can move both forward and backward.
First you put your feet crosswise with your toes outward with a jump, then also with a jump you spread your legs to the sides.
One leg is straight, stands on the whole foot, the other is with a bent knee on the pad. Leaning on the pad, you slip the foot of a straight leg back, as if wiping the sole on the floor.
Immediately after the slip, you turn around. In the turn, the straight leg bends and goes to the pad, and the one that was on the pad, on the contrary, turns on the heel. After that, it remains only to change legs and move in the same way in the other direction.
From the starting position - standing with a raised leg, as in Running man - you turn your hips to the side with a jump and put your legs crosswise.
The front foot is on the heel, the back foot is on the ball. Then you jump back to the starting position and do the same on the other side.
From the starting position, you turn your hips to the side with a jump and spread your legs a step apart from each other. The standing foot in front is placed on the heel, the standing one behind remains on the pillow. Then, with a jump, you collect your legs and do the same on the other side.
Try other variations of the basic shuffle movements
You can perform basic movements in different directions: forward and backward, turning around. This will give you more freedom to improvise.
Running man variations
Do several times in place and then turn around. You can also try walking this way to the side. Each time the leg will need to be placed slightly crossed in order to slowly move to the side.
You can drop your foot on the toe, on the whole foot, touch the floor to the side of the supporting leg or forward and behind it.
You can also keep the other leg off the floor at all - leave it on the toe and turn the knee in and out.
Here, another element is added to the movement - the heel strike. In the starting position, you wrap the toes of the feet and knees inward, and then jump on the heels, turning the socks to the sides.
From this position, without jumping, you turn your toes and knees inward, cross your legs with a jump, turning your feet with your toes outward, and then return to the starting position.
After three turns of the Charleston, turn both toes in one direction and then in the other. At the end, you can turn the knee to the side.
Combine familiar shuffle moves
While you lack the skills to move freely and come up with something of your own, learn a few combinations. They contain interesting movements that will replenish your dance vocabulary.
This is a simple combination of two basic movements - Running man and T-step. First take five Running man steps, then four T-steps to the side and repeat the same in the opposite direction.
Another combination of two basic movements. Here you do three Running mans, then one T‑step with a back foot touch, and two front heel touch kicks. The same on the other side.
There are no standard steps here, but there are already familiar Sidekick and transition from heels to toes.
Learn more difficult combinations
We will add some videos with good combinations.
1. Cool video for beginners: movements are repeated in slow motion to make it easier to dance to the music.
2. And here the combination is analyzed step by step in slow motion, dividing it into three parts. Very comfortably. Look for more on this channel, there are several such analyzes.
3. No slowdown here, just a great combination. But you already know almost all the movements, so you can figure it out. If something is not clear, watch the video at a speed of 0.
