How to dance nasty

How to Dirty Dance - Howcast

When you’re trying to seal the deal on the dance floor, knowing how to really get down can make all the difference.


  • Step 1: Find a partner Find a partner you can practice with. If you can’t find someone you’re sexually attracted to, just grab anyone.
  • Step 2: Loosen up To learn to dirty dance you’ll need to loosen up. Wiggle around a bit. Get those limbs loose and limber.
  • TIP: Commit to looking silly. Remember, no one’s watching at this point and no one cares.
  • Step 3: Learn to grind your hips The 'dirty' part of dirty dancing is all in the grinding of the hips. Practice on your own. Grind to the front, front, side, side, front, front, side, side. Now that’s dirty!
  • Step 4: Learn a basic step Learn a basic rhythmic step on your own. Step right, then bring the left foot together with the right. Then do the opposite -- step left and bring the right foot together. Now a little faster. Step right, together, left, together, right, together, left, together. Good.
  • Step 5: Learn the basic hold Learn the basic dirty dancing hold. The man grips his partner so his right hip is glued to her right hip, with his right leg between her legs and her right leg between his legs. As for the upper body, the woman should have her hands around the man’s neck, while the man has his hands on the woman’s hips and/or rear end.
  • TIP: The upper body can vary, but the lower body should always return to the basic grind.
  • Step 6: Learn a basic dip A basic dirty dancing dip requires the man to slightly turn his partner to the right. While supporting her back, he lets her arch backward as she bends her supporting leg and raises her other leg as high as she can. She then drops her head back.
  • TIP: As you dip, kiss your partner seductively. Pay particular attention to the neck, shoulders, hands, and the upper part of the chest.
  • Step 7: Learn to spin The basic spin simply requires the man to turn the woman by her waist, as she follows his lead through one, two, or even three turns.
  • Step 8: Both face front From time to time, face front. The man turns his partner so she is facing out, with his body pressed against her back. The woman can either have her hands at her sides, or wrap her arms around the man’s neck. The man’s hands are on the front of her thighs and hips. Yes, very dirty indeed.
  • Step 9: Turn on some sexy music Now it’s time to put these basic moves together. Turn on some sexy music.
  • Step 10: Get into a sexy frame of mind Get into a sexy frame of mind. Sure, maybe you have the sex appeal of a used stamp. But right now you need to think of yourself as the sexiest person on earth. Feel it. Believe it.
  • Step 11: Let yourself go Now put it all together, and let yourself go. Step together, step together. Spin. Step together, step together. Dip. Step together, step together. Grind, grind, grind, grind. Dip. Now that’s dirty dancing!
  • FACT: The choreographer of the hit '80s film Dirty Dancing also choreographed the 2006 blockbuster High School Musical.

    Romola Garai, Soundtrack & Dances!

    Normally, I avoid these kind of films as romantic movies aren't my cup of tea or coffee. However, while i was working, the movie was playing and I was captured by the beauty of Romola Garai. So I decided to watch the film. There were some great foot-tapping songs and the dances were fairly good too. There's nothing like dancing with a beautiful woman (who can dance too). The film itself is quite okay, nothing outstanding. The lead pair Diego Luna and Romola Garai share a nice chemistry. Not only is Garai beautiful but she can act too as she delivers a sincere performance. Diego Luna does his part well although in a few scenes he does seem to have difficulty with some expressions. Sela Ward is alright in a minuscule part. Ditto for Patrick Swayze's cameo.To sum it up, what I liked about it was Romola Garai, the soundtrack and the dances.

    Going to the gym is boring, running through autumn puddles is disgusting, but do you still need to move more? Go learn to dance.

    Going to the gym is boring, running through autumn puddles is disgusting, but do you still need to move more? You can do without feats in the name of health and just go learn to dance. Ten facts "FOR" dancing as a fitness: 1. Dancing is also physical activity . Moreover, it is so multifaceted and diverse that it allows you to train not only all muscle groups, but also develop endurance, improve the functions of the heart, blood vessels and lungs. 2. Everyone can dance , regardless of age and health. It is enough to choose the type of dance that suits your interests and the level of initial physical fitness.

    Why exercise?

    Eight reasons and six explanations of benefits in one material.

    “For example, dances such as the waltz and tango are suitable for all age groups,” says Marina Makarova, head of the exercise therapy department of the Center for Restorative Medicine and Rehabilitation of the Treatment and Rehabilitation Center of the Russian Ministry of Health and Social Development. 3. Dancing allows you to increase the load gradually . When learning any dance technique, it is important to gradually train and consolidate individual elements - from simple to complex, which saves a person from injuries and disappointments. 4. An amateur dancer can dose his load himself . He does not have a set number of sets to complete or kilograms to lift. In addition, dancing with a partner allows you to see yourself from the outside, get quick feedback on successes and mistakes. 5. Dancing is another option useful for any person cardio load . After all, classes in the dance hall are a simple and long-term workout. It begins with a warm-up and is usually done at an intensity of 75-85 percent of your maximum heart rate. This helps to train the heart muscle and increase the endurance of the whole organism. 6. Dancing trains the nervous system . According to Marina Makarova, the need to adjust movements to the musical rhythm improves the connection between the brain and the peripheral parts of the nervous system. 7. Dancing helps to burn fat intensively . True, for this you will have to really dance, and not timidly prop up the wall in the corner of the hall. And if the dance style involves alternating cardio loads and strength training - acrobatics or partner support - then fat burning is even more intense. 8. Dancing improves posture . The need for half an hour to an hour to keep your back straight, as well as turns and tilts, strengthens the muscles of the back and helps a person get rid of stoop. 9. Dancing develops a sense of balance and coordination of movement . As Marina Makarova says, if a person dances in a pair, he has to control not only his movements and adapt to his partner. It is very useful for people of all ages. And for the elderly, improving balance is absolutely vital - this will protect them from serious injuries caused by a fall. 10. You can dance everywhere . You can move to music at home, in a park or forest, in company or alone. Any time of the day. The main thing is not to interfere with others. And remember that excessive dancing to music from headphones does not improve physical fitness, but makes a person inattentive and spoils his hearing. 11. Dancing improves the psychological state . After all, it is in the dance hall that it is very easy to find a common language with people, because there are solid like-minded people around. Fighting with your own still clumsy body will allow you to feel the taste of real victory when you finally get the first movement. And the very ability to move freely and express your feelings in dance is a good way to deal with stress and depression. Remember that most dance classes are attended by beginners just like you. Therefore, search the Internet for videos with different dances, choose the one that you like the most, and feel free to look for the nearest hall.

    "I hate talking to guests" | Irsiti.Ru


    This spring, all gossips in Novosibirsk are discussing a spicy ridiculous rumor, or the real story of Cinderella. The girls tell each other the story of how a dancer in one of the striptease clubs in the city married a client of the establishment and gave birth to a child. According to the "grandmothers at the entrance", the girl is happy. The editors of SHE are always for love. But it became interesting to us - how often girls make love with guests of such establishments, how much they get for going out and how they save themselves from inadequate boors and public stigma.

    Elena, did not indicate age

    “I started as a student, I needed quick money. I know how to dance since childhood, I studied classical choreography, I hear music. I came to the club on the announcement, the vacancy "show ballet dancer". They looked at me, they hired me, I studied for two weeks, then I started dancing in dormitories, then a solo dance appeared.

    How the team will accept you depends on your character. Each girl considers herself a star, there is competition for guests. Conflicts arise most often due to the fact that some allow you to touch yourself with your hands, which is not allowed under the terms of the contract. Guests begin to think that everyone is the same, and take liberties. One of these started up - and that's it, all alike. We ourselves try to explain to such girls that this is wrong. Many immediately come and say that they are not against intimacy, so there is more money. They recruit from ads, they promise to teach you how to dance, but in the club system this is secondary. First of all, appearance and communication skills are important, then dancing.

    Working as a stripper in a club is physically difficult. You must definitely sit with the guests, drink with them and not miss your turn on the stage, otherwise you will be fined. Work 6 days a week from 22:00 to 06:00, with one day off. Earnings come no longer from dancing, but from consumption - the dancer's communication with guests, and private parties, plus a percentage of alcohol and food. During the night, you can earn 5 thousand, and 50. It happens when a girl takes everything for herself, sometimes they divide it among themselves, everywhere in different ways. In general, this is Groundhog Day - you are at work at night, you sleep off during the day, and back to work, there is almost no time left for yourself.


    Guests most often treat dancers with disrespect, try to offend, humiliate, assert themselves at their expense. There were times when guests during a private thought that there would be sex now, and began to undress or began to have fun with themselves. In such cases, the dancer has the right to leave. Although in our clubs guests say that many girls provide sex services. I think it's a shame, a stigma. Do not confuse the concept of striptease and prostitution. According to the rules, a girl cannot leave after working with a client, it is unprofitable for the club, she threatens with dismissal and a fine. Although no one monitors this, just like the private rooms, it is not known what happens there.

    I haven't been working with this system for a long time, I left almost immediately. I am disgusted with communication with guests - I never allowed myself to be touched, to drink with them. I'd rather have a glass of wine at home with my man. Once a guest began to impudently paw me, and I hit him hard, so that my hand swelled up. After that, she left, now I take private orders: I danced and - goodbye. There is always a security guard with me.

    For me, striptease is an art, a show, people pay for beauty, it is important to present yourself effectively, so you need to invest in yourself, look good, costumes must be beautiful. My numbers are ordered to institutions, I come to bachelor parties. It infuriates when they ask about the continuation or when they ask on the Internet whether I provide sex services - I'm already shaking, then hire a prostitute right away. Usually by phone it immediately becomes clear what the client needs: if a man is sitting at home alone, he is bored, he decides to order a striptease, it is clear what he is counting on, I stop such orders.

    Sometimes I go abroad to perform. There, unlike in Russia, an escort point outside the club is common. If the girl agrees, she leaves with the guest wherever she wants. I never left, and that's why I didn't earn much. But I like to go on such tours, it's interesting, the opportunity to see more, to see the world.

    It happens that girls fall in love with clients, there are many such examples. They get married, have children. For me, this is a taboo, the relationship does not go beyond the "customer-executor". What kind of love can there be with a person who pays you to undress in front of him.

    Before striptease, I studied at the university, I had attempts to work for hire, but office work is not my thing. I prefer to dance on Fridays and Saturdays, get much more than the salary of an office worker. I'm not going to end my dance career yet, but I have other ways to earn money. I definitely won’t teach, I tried, it didn’t work out, I can’t explain.

    Maria, 25 years old

    “There is a stereotype that people go to dance striptease out of need – I never had it. I received a higher economic education, worked as a credit manager in a bank, then in a household appliances store. Dancing was my hobby - I danced with pleasure, but I went to work without it.

    Once my friends and I went to Cyprus: we danced in a bar there (just having fun for ourselves), and some drunk man made an unusual compliment - as if I dance professionally, and said that I could make a living doing this , praised my external data.

    I arrived and came to one of the clubs in Novosibirsk, I wanted to become a star, and not sell credit "iPhones" to losers. They didn’t take me - they told me to lose weight.

    I went to another, less pretentious one, and they told me that I would get a place, but if I start losing weight right today, for now I can study, and soon they will take me to perform in dormitories. I had to lose about 4 kilograms and go to the trainer in the gym.

    Earnings are unpredictable - mostly money comes from privates and alcohol that the client buys. You also have to drink, now it’s less, and before, guests were often offended when you didn’t drink with them.

    Many girls dance at stag parties and events, but I don't feel like it. There is often an uninterested audience. So you came to a corporate party - and here is a naked woman, not everyone is fine with this. Not always the customer will guess how the audience reacts. And men who come to striptease know why they are going and are ready to spend money.


    This is the third summer I'm going to work in Europe - the terms of the contract are tougher there, but the earnings are higher and life is more pleasant there. We live with the girls in apartments for three. Work every day from 21:00 to 5:00 approximately. It is necessary to make sure that the client does not leave as long as possible, and drinks as much as possible. If you leave with him past the club, they break the contract and then leave on your own, and maybe pay a penalty - I heard such stories. We manage to sunbathe for a couple of hours with the girls during the day, and that's it. 600 euros per week plus tea. Plus housing, flights and visas at the expense of the company. It's strict, not everyone is accepted. My mother is in Novosibirsk, so I can’t move there permanently yet.

    I make better money than in a bank and the work is more pleasant. Hama and other inadequate come across rarely. The most unpleasant thing for all the time I worked was that a guy in one of the clubs in Novosibirsk poured a cocktail on me out of anger, I don’t remember what he didn’t like.

    Rumors about the hands off system (you can't touch girls with your hands in private. — М.М.) amuse me. You can touch if you give money for it, if not, you can’t. But for everyone individually, I admit that such a system also works.

    About love at work — we, of course, often come across this. Not always love, but relationship. Everything is here for this. I meet only on mutual sympathy. Everything is the same as everyone else: they take you to restaurants, to the cinema there. But this is rare, I had relationships with guests twice - and there is also a stereotype that sex with a stripper on the first date is enchanting. My men didn't think so. But some try to lure with promises and check when they realize that they cannot be bought.

    A friend introduced me to my boyfriend, he is not from our group. I told him on the first day of communication that I was a stripper, but not a prostitute. He has modern views, but it was not easy to get used to, now we have no problems. My income is about 200 thousand per month. But you need to work it all the time and have experience in communication and dating in this area (club managers, for example. - M.M.) ”.

    Natalia, 36 years old

    “They didn't take me to the tenth grade, my parents told me to go and work. At that time I already communicated with people from the sphere of show business, I was invited to dance go-go on the beach "Neocom". And so it began, they called me to one club, then to another, and in the end I got into a show ballet with striptease elements, where they taught me everything. I worked for a long time at Alpen Grote, I was in the very first team of the club.

    Earnings are based on the volume of work. I have not danced in clubs for a long time, I only have private orders - bachelor parties, holidays, the birthday of my 70-year-old grandfather. Somehow I opened the summer season ahead of time, in May, I was invited to the anniversary, to dance in the country. Once there was an order - a striptease dressed as a clown. Schedule: we work on a call, more often Friday and Saturday. I have a person who finds orders for me, plus his connections that have been developed over so many years.

    Our work is dangerous in its own way, you go to people's houses. There are various extreme situations, one time the behavior of the guests got out of control, and I was lucky that I was with a friend. If she had come alone, it is not known what would have ended. And once the guys themselves got scared and decided not to mess with me. They offer intimacy all the time, you immediately say: "Boys, call another place, we're just dancing." I don't have a security guard, I work alone.


    I like my job, I don't see any cons. This is a life experience, the opportunity to communicate with people in different cities and countries. I also have orders abroad. Before dancing, I didn’t work anywhere, so there’s nothing to say. Most of the time I didn’t think about a second profession, and only recently I realized that I’m getting older, I won’t be able to dance forever. I graduated from massage courses, I develop in parallel in this area.

    Love stories happen, but outside the club.
