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!

4. 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!

on At the start, you always want to get a quick result. When it doesn't happen, the hypothesis arises that everything takes time. After a conditionally acceptable time, humility comes to mastering pair dances, which, perhaps, is not given, and I will just do what I learned somehow.
This is the most common story of those who believe that the mere act of attending a pair dance class is enough to learn how to dance.
Absolutely not. If you want to really dance well, you have to make an effort outside of the dance class. A good teacher will definitely be needed, but the initiative should be on your side.
1. Listen to music
The most common and accessible advice that is given already in the first lessons. And it definitely works. Music creates a certain atmosphere of the dance and intuitively you want to move to it. It doesn't matter where you listen to music - in the car, on headphones while walking or doing household chores.
An addition that will help you dance better is your active participation in the music. Sing along, dance or simply beat musical accents with any free parts of the body. In the subway, for example, it is enough to tap out bright moments with your fingers, in the car to sing along with sounds, and at home you can jump for pleasure.
2. Watch videos of good dancers
It's complicated, but also obvious. It’s more difficult, because without recommendations from more experienced dancers, unfortunately, it’s not so easy to find a good quality video on the net (I mean not the resolution quality, but the content itself).
Meaningful video viewing is about building an understanding of HOW dancers make a particular impression on a partner or viewer. Technology is at the heart of everything. Understanding how the pros do it is a big step forward.
It is important to distinguish a show from a disco dance, a staged performance from an improvisation, a stylized dance from an authentic one, etc. Ask for recommendations and dance teachers will always throw off a couple of videos of worthy landmarks.

Tango nuevo is the most advanced version of tango. We can quickly learn to dance from zero to a steep level.
3. Dance in salsatecas/milongas/discotheques
A very delicate moment when it is worth coming to the first party. From a technical point of view, most students in 1-3 months have a sufficient set of figures and techniques to come and dance calmly. Psychologically, the same moment can be stretched out for an indefinite time. After all, it is imperative to “not lose face”, “learn more figures” and be sure what to do in case “there is an unfamiliar movement”.
In fact, the partygoers don't really care (except for a small layer of non-professional teachers who want to help inexperienced dancers by treating them as customers in the future). It is important to come and try dancing after a month of classes. You can only with friends or guys from your group. This will be enough to feel the adrenaline and inspiration from the dance.
4. Dance with partners or partners not of your level
The conventional wisdom that you need to practice in groups of your level does not withstand the test of experience. Perhaps now your eyes widened in surprise, and you want to meaningfully read the phrase again. Yes, you saw everything correctly: when you dance with a partner of your level, you don’t grow anywhere.
It's important to understand that not only does it work one way and you have to dance with cooler dancers, but it works even more effectively the other way. It is no coincidence that teaching pair dances dramatically raises the level of the teacher himself. You have an endless stream of very beginner dancers.
How it works. A more experienced partner needs to be "stretched". It's easy and obvious. With beginners, you need to take more initiative on yourself, see the general pattern of the dance more widely, turn on and insure more, try to be an example and be more careful. The quality of interaction begins to grow significantly. And wonderful partners too.
Dancing with partners of your level doesn't make you grow. Dance with both beginners and more advanced dancers

5. Learn to dance for a partner and for a partner
Turks and Argentines are one of the best partners in the world. In Russia, partners are highly valued. Why? The answer is simple. In Argentina and Turkey, it is not questionable for men to ask another man to lead in one piece or another and give feedback on the quality of the lead. For them, it will be a great shame to hear moralizing from a partner, or even more so to be known in the community as an insecure partner.
In Russia, due to the constant, often far-fetched, opinion that there are more women in pair dances, partners calmly get up and study their partner's part. Such partners then grow into very cool dancers and teachers. In no case do this at parties, only in class. Here we are talking only about the learning strategy. At parties, be yourself.
6. Do not memorize the links
Always try to look deeper and understand the through principle and idea of movement. Understanding what and how is done will make it possible to independently generate any sequences and chips.
Human memory is limited and there will always be a moment when something will escape and your repertoire will be limited by the size of RAM.
In Argentine tango, for example, there are seven levels of movement construction that, when mastered, will allow you to make millions of combinations. And how many dance sequences can you really remember? In rueda, more than 150 figures dance in a rare circle. It's hard to keep more in mind.
7. Develop your body
Many years of experience in teaching couple dance shows that as soon as everyone pairs up in a class, any progress in individual style ends. But it is the individual style that distinguishes everyone at the disco: partners change, and style is always with you.
The body as the main instrument of dance must be very plastic, responsive and emotional. Surprisingly, not all pair dance schools have a general physical warm-up. It is vital to tune the body and understand how it works.
You can always train extra and concentrate more on the basic steps, as their true value is as body work. The sequence of steps is, in fact, the simplest thing that can be in pair dancing. The quality of individual performance determines the craftsmanship.
8. Try on the images of inspiring dancers
A psychological life hack for those who have already mastered the steps, but still feel that there is not enough brightness and drive. Most are terribly afraid of being someone else's "clone". Here the action is the same as under the influence of hypnosis - the more you resist, the more you plunge into an altered state of consciousness.
With a high degree of probability, you are already dancing like someone else's "clone". A meaningful fitting of someone else's image is that you mentally take the image of the one who inspires you (inspiration is critical in this case) and "put on" yourself. Then you start dancing and trying to feel in general how it is to be able, for example, to be the best partner or the sexiest partner in a disco. This is much more difficult than it seems. But it works extremely efficiently.
9. Dance to offbeat music
Habitual rhythms keep you tight. Tango salon or speedy timba leave little room for experimentation and fantasy. Pattern dancing is always noticeable and is reserved for beginners.
The truly new is born outside of the usual. Look for places to experiment. If there is no place, organize self-training. The main thing is not to get carried away, because music determines the style. We bring something new to pair dances, rather than trying to change them.
Search, improvise, don’t be afraid to go beyond, develop in different directions, be inspired by music atypical for the style
10. Try your hand at basic dance directions
dances exist according to their own non-choreographic laws.
This is the deepest delusion, which has turned into a ceiling for the qualitative development of partner dances. After all, all professional dancers, for example, in salsa or bachata, build their ideas on the basic choreographic principles.
Do not think that choreography is only applicable on stage. Any meaningful movement of the body can be choreographic. In general, try classical or modern choreography. Basically, hip-hop can work too.
11. Look for battle sensations
Pair dances return us to an active position of manifestation of our body. As in the days of our ancient ancestors, we impress the members of the opposite sex by how dexterous, hardy, sexy, etc. we are. Modern laws of the jungle in the entourage of large cities.
If you look around the dance floor, it becomes clear that the majority are clearly herbivores (not in the sense of vegetarians, but in relation to those around them). I am sure that predators are always more interesting in terms of the attractiveness of the image - try to find a counterbalance among herbivores, for example, a cat woman or a lion man.
The conversation is about an internal position, not about aggressiveness. Lability and lack of control are inherent in adolescents, and not in adult self-sufficient people.
Accordingly, even a training or friendly battle gives, on the one hand, practical skills - to make a bright sequence of movements, bring an idea to a climax, show a spectacular feature, on the other hand, develops the psychological basis of the dance - self-confidence, resistance to extraneous attention, self-control and self-control in complex elements.
12. Communicate with professionals
The environment shapes the internal position. Basically, real passionaries of the dance community are ready to openly talk, discuss and support the development of dance in every possible way. Universal principles and the ideas they articulate have a much longer and more practical perspective than meets the eye.
Accept that, for example, behind the words "listen to your partner" is not only a beautiful metaphor, but also a practical skill to literally listen to your partner. At the same time, always treat every thought, even the most respected teacher, as a private opinion.
Your skill will lie in finding the scope of the idea even in conflicting opinions. Most often, the contradiction is speculative and the truth lies in the angle of perception or situationality.
Your dancing growth will stop sooner or later. This can happen at the level of three basic steps or years of experience in teaching and show performances. Regardless of your level, the suggested 12 life hacks can get you off the ground and greatly accelerate your dance growth. There is no way here without your motivation and activity.

Cool dance competitions for guests
The entertainment program can include a variety of dance competitions, games and fun, as long as they are not too intimate. Of course, a small number of explicit jokes will add spice to the program. But you need to work with them carefully, like a cook with seasoning, and in no case "pepper".
Team dance battle
The host recruits two teams with an equal number of participants, but no more than 10 people.
In each team, a soloist is selected to show the movements, and all the other members of the group repeat them. The teams perform their dances in turn, trying to dance each other.
Guests not involved in the competition act as a jury. Winners are chosen by the volume of applause.
One of the funniest dances at a wedding is the battle. In a fit of excitement, guests liberate themselves and reveal their dancing talents.
The facilitator chooses 8 participants who form a circle. Under the musical accompaniment, the guests pass each other a box with phantoms. When the melody stops, the one who has the box in his hands takes out a phantom and performs the specified dance. For example, lezginka, waltz, rock and roll, hip-hop, etc. This competition is perfect not only for a wedding, but also for other holidays: birthdays, anniversaries or anniversaries.
Dance of Wishes
The game involves 5 guests with certain qualities.
The host turns to the lovers in turn, starting with the groom:
— Groom, choose the most athletic of your friends, the one who loves physical activity, takes care of his health and never gets sick. (The groom chooses one man).
- Now the bride must choose the most flirtatious of her bridesmaids. The one that always has a lot of fans. (One of the girls comes out).
- It's the groom's turn again. Which of your friends is the most hardworking and wealthy, who knows how and loves to make money? (The groom chooses one of the guests).
- Bride, name your most cheerful, smiling and cheerful girlfriend. (Another girl comes out.)
- We need another member, the most sociable, the soul of the company, who cannot imagine his life without a large number of friends. Who is this? (The groom calls the man and he leaves).
Guests entering the stage introduce themselves by name. Next, the participants are given the task:
- Friends, and now you must wish the newlyweds what you yourself are rich in, but this must be done not with the help of words, but in the form of a dance!
Toastmaster plays music appropriate to the participant's qualities. Players perform dances, each to their own tune.
— Our first guest wishes you good health! (The song “Inhale deep, arms wider!” Turns on).
- Our charming (girl's name) wishes you a lot of love! (Song "Love is like a dream").
- And now a wish for money from (friend's name)! (Song “Money, money, money…”, ABBA).
- The next guest gives you fun! (Sounds "Major rock and roll", "Secret").
- And finally, (friend's name) wishes you many friends who will always be ready to support you! (the composition "Lambada" sounds).
The host thanks the guests and asks them to go to their seats.
This competition can be held during dance breaks. Everyone can take part in it. The leader and his assistant pull the tape, and the participants must pass under it, but they can only lean back. During the competition, cheerful, incendiary music sounds. Gradually the barrier is lowered lower and lower. The one who can pass under the low-lying ribbon last is the winner.
Closer to each other
3 to 5 couples participate in the competition. Players stand facing each other and hold helium balloons between their foreheads so that they do not fly away. Participants must dance to cheerful music and at the same time watch out for the balls that tend to rise up.
5 people participate in the competition. A box is placed in front of them, in which there are parts of the costumes of different peoples (saber, gypsy skirt, castanets, Indian shawl, Chinese umbrella).
The leader plays folk songs. For one participant - one composition. The player must select a suitable piece of costume as quickly as possible and dance with it.
Parts of the body
An unlimited number of people can participate in this game. Everyone who wants to stand in a circle and, at the command of the leader, dance to modern music, but only with one specific part of the body (left hand, right foot, head, etc.).
Two of the most active wedding guests (a young man and a girl) are suitable for this game. You can invite a witness and a witness. They should tell the love story of the bride and groom in a dance. First, the host shows each movement to the players, and they repeat them:
- “Walking” — the participants take rhythmic steps.
- "Saw each other" - the players make a "V"-shaped figure with their index and middle fingers and show it first to their own eyes, then to the opposite player.
- "Fell in love" - draw a heart in the air.
- “Head spinning with happiness” - they wrap their hands around their head and make rotational movements with it.
- "Began to meet" - join hands and walk in a circle.
- "I made an offer" - the guy gets on one knee in front of the girl.
- "Agreed" - the girl puts her hands to her heart, and then holds them out to the guy.
- "Wedding" - Participants blow kisses to the newlyweds.
Then the toastmaster pronounces the names of the movements, and the players reproduce them on their own. As soon as the dance is sufficiently rehearsed, the contestants perform it to the music.
Repeat if you can
This competition requires a large monitor. The host prepares video clips of funny dance moves in advance. Having called several participants, he starts playing video clips with cheerful music. The task of the dancers is to repeat the movements that they see on the screen.
Here, too, a monitor is used. Several couples take part in the game. They perform free slow dance to classical music. As soon as the melody ends, the couple must take the pose depicted on the screen. To make the competition more fun, you can display photos of pair dances by professional performers or pair figure skating on the screen.

Cool dance wedding contests for guests: funny and original ideas
A wedding is a bright event that stays in the memory of the newlyweds for a long time. But in addition to delicious dishes, sparkling wine and entertainment, guests need to dance from the heart. Very often, taking the first step on the dance floor is not easy, so you need to help people present at the wedding feel comfortable. For guests to start dancing, you need to create a relaxed atmosphere , and most importantly - to direct them in the right direction. This will be helped by dance competitions for the wedding, which will surely delight those present and motivate them for fun movements to the boisterous music.
This entertainment option is a great opportunity to rally guests and quietly call them to the dance floor.
The most daring will start, but those who modestly sit on the sidelines will gradually join
The dance "vinaigrette" allows guests to stir and at the same time does not focus on any individual person, putting him in an awkward position. In order to make such a dance competition , you will need cuts from various tunes that can be both popular and outdated. You can also take music of different styles - from twist, disco and "gypsy" to incendiary Latin American rumba, lambada and tango.
Wedding dance competition
This simple but fun wedding dance competition will make your guests feel merry and daring. You can also come up with a prize for the one who dances the most rhythmically and can show a variety of dance moves .
Round dance for guests
This competition can be held in different ways, but it always turns out to be fun and incendiary. In order to conduct it, the host stands in front of the guests and performs certain movements to the music . The task of the guests is to move in a circle and repeat everything after the main “dancer”. Further, the leader can transfer the “reins of government” into the hands of the guest, and he will already be able to show the movements that will perform after him, those present at the wedding .
The participant who most accurately repeats the movements becomes the winner
However, even if the guests fail to do everything with professional accuracy, the wedding round dance will give fun and many pleasant minutes.

Dance with cucumber
This fun competition can be held with the guests, holding them in a little tension. To do this, all participants stand in a circle, and they have is given cucumber . To cheerful music, the guests quickly pass it to each other, trying to get rid of the item as soon as possible. When the music stops, the cucumber is in someone's hands. The guest who did not manage to get rid of the object enters the circle and, to the applause of those present, begins to perform arbitrary movements to any song.
Wedding competition "Dance with a Cucumber" always gives a lot of emotions, laughter and at the same time keeps the intrigue to the very end.

For the best conduct, we advise you to hold this competition together with the toastmaster, because it will be he who will announce the winner!
Dance battle at the wedding
In order for to hold this competition , you need to divide the participants into two teams. The host, in order to “warm up” the guests, shows certain dance moves that the teams alternately demonstrate. The most accurate "copy" of the original is evaluated by the presenter and guests-spectators. After a series of dances to different music, the points are calculated, and the team with the most points becomes the winner of the battle.
It is important to note that whatever the dance competition is should be treated as a fun event with jokes and laughter. It is impossible for one of the guests to be offended, so you should avoid barbs, indecent humor and phrases that can hurt a person’s pride.
Marriage is always an occasion to have fun, and also make a video of the dance competition at the wedding as a memorable event:

The less these people care - and the more they give free rein - the better.

You read that right - Nick Saban. I have yet to see conclusive evidence that Nick Saban ever smiles, let alone dances.
But it happened. It's grainy and hard to see, but it's there.
According to Sporting News' Cami Mattioli, Saban reportedly performed an electric slide in his own home in front of a group of Alabama recruits.

After defeating the Tennessee Titans, Cleveland Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer took part in the after-game celebration in the locker room.
Maybe he was celebrating a victory or his own outstanding performance. Or maybe he was enjoying the fact that Johnny Manzil was nowhere to be seen. Either way, his dance films are amazing. Tennessee Fans ". Take it?
Anyway, Deadspin's Kyle Wagner brought to our attention a video of volunteer fans dancing to the song - they're really into it. You know? I dig enthusiasm.

The Texas Tech football team danced in practice. As if that weren't enough, head coach Cliff Kingsbury stepped into the game himself (look for him at the 0:40 mark).
His players have definitely shown him, but you have to admire his efforts.
5 of 15
Mark Dantonio is another head coach who doesn't smile much. In fact, this spectacle is so rare that it seems to be reserved only for Rose Bowl wins.
Luckily, Michigan's head football coach received one in January 2014. theme song.
Dantonio's dance moves, dressed in khaki, can only be described as delightful.

You may remember this Detroit Pistons assistant because he was absolutely amazing. He danced with a child in the stands, and it was all great.
Well, he's back in business. This guy is funny and, as B/R's Ken Chen points out, he really knows how to dance. He is such an important person that he even has his own Twitter account.
The doorman is amazing. The kid is amazing. All are amazing.

Dennis Norfleet's on-field play against Penn State was Michigan's best football experience of the year.
And no, it was not a football match.
George Clinton's Atomic Dog played over the stadium's loudspeakers while Norfleet waited to answer Penn State's punch. Evan Yankens of CBS Detroit reported that Norfleet specifically requested the song so he could dance to it while he waited.
George Clinton liked it.

This gem has been given to us by Clemson head coach Dabo Sweeney.
Hoping to encourage alumni to return to Clemson for a homecoming weekend, Sweeney danced to Farrell's "Happy" in the film—because apparently that's how alumni would feel if they returned. Fast forward to the 0:20 mark to start the party.
There are so many great things in this video: the clothes (the polo tucked into jeans), the lip sync, the fact that he doesn't know all the words and doesn't seem to care.
Dabo Sweeney, you are the best. If I went to Clemson, I would definitely come back home.

Right, Lou Holtz.
After Mississippi's victory over Auburn, ESPN picked up the old parody SNL . In this version, Res Davis is Christopher Walken and Lou Holtz is Will Ferrell.
Holz went all out, that's for sure. I think Ferrell would be proud of his enthusiasm.

It's unclear what prompted Seattle Mariners pitcher Tom Wilhelmsen to show off his dance moves, but I'm so glad he did.
Maybe he was celebrating the last game of the season, or maybe he just loves "Give Up for What" (and who doesn't?).
Good luck, don't laugh at it.

The Durham Bulls are the best team in baseball, at least when it comes to amazing dance routines.
Four grown men singing a Taylor Swift song at a Triple-A baseball game is not something you see every day. So take it - it's fun.

A young fan at a Miami Marlins game was definitely not afraid to get down. He was so excited to be shown on camera during the game that he just let loose and the result was amazing.
Turns out being cool pays off—young fan Jonathan became an internet sensation and even threw the first pitch at a later Marlins game.

Peyton Manning just can't help but be cute, can't he? With his hilarious commercials, unwavering professionalism, and immense talent, it's hard not to love him.
Then he does it, dancing unabashedly to "Rocky Top", the University of Tennessee's unofficial fight song.
Manning must have known that his dance moves weren't exactly "good", but he went for it anyway. Completely amazing.

10 most bizarre dance quirks
Contra dance comes from 17th century English country dances and French dances. Couples come together to perform folk-style moves, although they can be performed in groups or in rows of dancers facing each other. According to new report
"In one of the latest revivals of all things old-fashioned, more New York City millennials are choosing to spend their Friday and Saturday nights sober and dancing around with strangers," writes Tyler J. Kelly. “Contra offers young city dwellers an inclusive environment where they can get some sweat away from the gym and touch people, not screens.” The dance is currently gaining momentum in Brooklyn, where the monthly events have peaked in popularity.
Dance fads can tell a lot about a generation. Of late, twerking has become a dance craze, but its association with traditional West African dance shows that the movement has been around for centuries. However, many people find it strange and offensive.
For fun (because we respect dance as an art form in all forms of expression), here are ten more weird dance quirks that have caught on.
Dance "Oops Upside Your Head"
Funk-based and early hip-hop-inspired anthems R&B group The Gap Band's 1979 single "I Don't Believe You Want to Get Up and Dance (Oops!) is better known as the song "Oops Up Side Your Head". Like most great hymns, it comes with a dance—if you can call sitting on the floor in rows and rocking "dances."
The "Stanky Legg"
"Stanky Legg" is a 2008 hit by Texas hip hop group GS Boyz.
If you speak the language of the Phish jam rock icons, then the Meatstick is for you. The name doesn't conjure up pretty images, but the fans are crazy about it: Phish.net Source:
Meat Stick Proudly Walked Out of the Lakewood Amphitheater Massacre 7/3/99. The already legendary international dance craze, the "Meatstick" dance, was presented by the entire team the next day in a reprise of the song at the conclusion of the monstrous "Carini" encore. Trey [Anastasio] suggested that the Meat Stick dance would be bigger than the Macarena.
Gangnam Style Dance
Since we've all lived through the Gangnam Style pistachio commercials like soldiers, we'll just say that musician Psy really knows how to get the most out of a horse's trot.
Because you want to look like a monkey holding two bananas when you walk around the club.
Nothing good comes from adult performance of dances named after barnyard animals, such as the chicken dance, which originated in the 1950s. Please stop this, wedding people.
Dagger, which is the best way to describe this dance combination of dry hump, wrestling, body punching and rough playing, originated in Jamaican dancehall and has only recently been given a name. Doctors have reported men with broken penises due to a hard blow from a dagger - and we can only imagine the complications women see when male partners often jump from great heights to stab them between the legs.
Waaking is basically a dance for your hands with lots of postures and some footwork. It began appearing in clubs in the 1970s, although many Americans probably first saw it on Soul Train . Its interpretive qualities offer dancers the freedom to express themselves, but waking can also look like you're in a major crisis (again, the same can be true of many dances like moshing). It's like wog, but the Aus Ninja dancer says, “Waking is more fluent, you do poses, but in between you still beat the rhythm with your hands and your body moves across the floor.
