-Mambo No. 5 ~ Lou Bega

I couldn’t agree less with what Agnes de Mille says of dancing, “To dance is to be out of yourself, larger, more powerful, more beautiful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking.” Considered to be one of the most expressive and active forms of art, dancing sums up as a fun social activity that is enjoyed by people of all age groups. Passion, practice, and perfection are essential to make a good dancer.

Whether you plan to impress that girl you have been eying, or to rock the floor at the high school dance, you ought to come up with interesting and cool moves to jazz you up. Be the attention seeker you always wish to be with these dance moves that are uber cool and suave.


D-I-S-C-O! That’s right, breakdancing evolved in the 1970s, eventually gaining popularity on the disco-front. Breakdancing, famously known as B-boying is performed to hip-hop and breakbeats. The four elements that form breaking include, toprock, downrock, power moves and freezes.


If first impressions matter, toprocking is a sure short way of creating a good first impression. Let’s just say, well begun is half done!

To perform: Start with your feet together while your arms are crossed over your chest. Then, pivot on your left foot and shift your weight on to the right foot. Simultaneously, swing your arms open to form an inclined plane. Return to initial position and repeat the movements with the other foot. Once you master the basic move, you can improvise and create a style that is uniquely you.

The 6-step

The most important part of b-boying, the 6-step forms the backbone of this style of dancing. The breaker has to maintain continuous ground contact for this move which means one or the other hand has to be touching the ground at all times. It is this move that helps set the momentum for other complex dance moves.

To perform: You start this move in a push-up position and bring your right leg forward and extend it in front of the left leg. Lift your left hand thus shifting your weight to the right hand and foot. Bring your left leg closer to the right leg such that it crosses at the knee. Swing the right leg in front of the right hand so that you are in the crab position. Switch hands while the left leg swings around in front of the right leg. Keep the right hand off the ground and extend your legs back into the initial position bring your right hand back down and repeat the steps.

Back Spin: Considered to be an easy move, especially if you have got the right momentum.

To perform: Lie on your right side while extending your arm above your head. Swing your left leg over your head and with a swift motion snap your right foot in the same direction over your head. Lock your feet in position by wrapping the left ankle over the right. Tuck your legs into your chest with your arms resting on your thighs so that, you curl up into a ball. This will have you spinning on your lower back.


Made popular by Michael Jackson in ‘Billie Jean’, moonwalk is one of the coolest dance techniques.

To perform: Get into position with your feet shoulder-width apart. Your right foot should be slightly ahead of the left foot in such a way that your left foot is in line with the arch of the right foot. Shift your weight to the left foot and lift the heel of the foot so that your left foot is in the tiptoe position.

Now slide the right foot back to align it with the arch of the left foot and shift the weight to the right foot. Remember, you have to keep shifting your weight to the foot that is in the tiptoe position. Besides, the foot that is flat against the ground is always the one that is moving.

The Worm: Also referred to as the dolphin, it basically replicates the movement of a worm.

To perform: Start with lying face down on the floor, bend your legs at the knees so that you have your feet up in the air. With a kicking movement, send your feet off the ground. Crunch your stomach and lift your hip off the ground, then arch your chest and straighten your hips. Get your lower body to touch the ground while you lift your upper body higher up the ground. Clap your hands on the floor for a touch down and repeat the steps all over again.

Jazz Dance

“Dance is music made visible.” ~ George Balanchine

What do you get when you mix fun and energy together? It’s jazz, and its peculiarity lies in the individuality and improvisation of the dancer. Jack Cole is considered to be the father of ‘theatrical dance technique’. This dance technique combines various dance techniques like tap and ballet besides also incorporating African-American dance moves.

Split leap: Flexibility and strength are the required elements to perform this dance move.

To perform: Begin with your feet together and your hands to your sides. Get in to the crouching position on your toes and place your hands on the floor. Using your hands thrust yourself upwards, jump straight pushing yourself higher off the floor. Once in the air, pop your legs out to the sides so that your legs are parallel to the ground and your shoulder. Keep your toes pointed and your knees straight. Last but not the least, don’t forget to try out the different styles of split jumping.


A pattern formed by gliding to either sides, which is what gives its name chasse, which means to slide. It can be performed solo or with a partner.

To perform: Start with your feet together and the legs bent at the knees. Take a step to the right with your right leg and quickly bring your left leg close to your right with a gliding motion. Which means you step, get feet together and again step to seem like gliding on the dance floor. Repeat the steps starting with the left foot.

The Hammer

To perform: Start with your arms relaxed by your side and your feet together. Bend and lift your right leg forming a right angle with the floor. Lift and bend your arms with your elbows jutting to the sides, parallel to the ground. Lower your right leg while sliding your left leg backwards and leaning forwards. Lower your arms and stand on your left toe shifting the weight to the right leg. Repeat the steps with the left leg.

That’s not all! You have many more dance moves to try out from. There’s hip hop, salsa, and jive, each bringing out a different move allowing the dancer to set the stage on fire. Keep grooving!!

10 Basic Dance Moves Anyone Can Learn

Do you ever watch someone dance and wonder how they come up with moves so easily?

Great dancers often master a specific set of moves that they can fall back on again and again.

Read on for 10 basic dance moves you can learn in minutes and use every time you wanna dance.

P.S. You can learn all of these moves for FREE on STEEZY Studio! No cc required. 😉

1. The Two-Step

When I first started dancing at parties, the Two-Step was the first move that truly came naturally to me.

It really is as simple as stepping from side to side to the beat!

If you're looking for something foolproof that allows you to just groove and enjoy the music...

Boom. Here it is.

2. The Monestary

This move was born in a club called Monestary out in St. Louis!

It’s built on a Two-Step, so if you took that class, you’ve already got a foundation for the footwork.

But rather than bringing your feet together, you’ll tap them to the front with your knee and foot turned inward.

Then, as you tap the feet, you’ll move your arms and shoulders in a circular movement.

3. Booty Pop (Side To Side)

Like the Woah, this sexy move is super TikTok-friendly – but with more feminine energy.

To do a booty pop to the side, you’re gonna bend your knees, put your hands on one knee, and then bring the other leg from bent to straight while turning your knee inward.

If you’re a long-haired baddie, be sure to keep all your hair on one side so it doesn’t flop in your face as you pop!

The Billy Bounce

Surprise – this club-ready move is built on… a bounce!

But what makes it unique is that your knees will come inward on each bounce rather than just up and down.

Once you’ve got the funky lil knee bounce down, you’ll add in an upward kick on each side.
The best thing about this move is that while the footwork takes a few minutes to learn, you don’t necessarily need to add an arm movement to make it look cool.

Just keep your arms front and center.

5. The Woah

Even if you’re not actively involved in the dance community, you’ve probably seen people hitting the Woah – on TikTok, Reels... all over your newsfeed!

Whether you wanna make a viral video of your own, or you’re just looking for a fun, basic dance move to pull out at the clerb, this one is too good not to learn.

Since the locking arm motion is so sharp and pronounced, use the Woah to accent the heaviest bass beats in your favorite songs.

6. The Dougie

Yes, the Dougie is a real dance move!

Like the Two-Step, you’ll be shifting your weight from side to side, but this time, adding some shoulder movements and a lil more attitude.

Try this one out to some songs other than the one that made it famous – you’ll find it works with any hype beat.

7. Scoop Arm Into Hip Sway

Sooo this one is more of combo than a move, but it only takes a few minutes to learn and it works with any fun sassy song…

So it deserves to be here, ok?!

For this move, you’re gonna scoop your arm across your chest, then bring it over your head, and finally point it in front of your chest.

Once you point the arm in front of you, you’ll sway your hips from side to side and groove it out.

8. The Bust Down

The Bust Down was popularized by LA rapper, Blueface, in his 2019 club jam “Thotiana”.

You’re gonna grab your belt, put one arm in the air, and allow your body to dip with the beat.

Note: Licking your eyebrows like Blueface is fun, but not required. 😛

9. The Biz Markie

The Biz Markie is an old school party dance inspired by, you guessed it, rapper Biz Markie!

It rose to popularity in the 90s, when Biz Markie himself began performing it on stage.

As you practice it, remember to allow your shoulders to bounce – the bounce is what gives this move its cool, laidback flavor.

10. The Humpty

For this bouncy move, you’re gonna circle your hips to one side as your bend your knees.

Then, you’ll jump and cross your legs, allowing your feet to tap the floor briefly before you jump back to your original legs apart position.

Once you’ve got that down, you can complete the move by adding in a windmill motion with your arms.

The leg cross in this move makes it perfect for any Hip Hop song that features a double bass (aka that BOOM BOOM sound that you hear in songs like “Lip Gloss” by Lil Mama)

We hope you enjoyed learning some of our favorite basic dance moves.

Of course, this list is just a start!
