Work Out (Talkbox) - Adam Tahere

Jerkin’ |

Jerkin’ has been growing in popularity in the last few years.  Despite the growing interest, the origins of the dance are unclear.  It was approximately 2008 when the Jerk culture begun.  Since Jerkin comes out of the suburbs of Los Angeles we know the dances that preceded were Clowning and Krumping.   Members of Jerkin’ dance crews started out as clowns and krumpers but adapted their style and created their own take on footwork (a street dance style from Chicago).  Their adaptation of footwork became known as the “reject.”  Reject is one of the signature dance moves of Jerkin.


In 2009 the song “You’re a Jerk” came out by New Boyz.  This song became very popular and helped spread the word about the new dance movement, Jerkin’.



The jerkin’ dance crew Ranger$ is one of the hottest jerkin’ crews out of Los Angeles.  They are famous for their homemade videos posted to myspace and youtube that were filmed in casual places such as the Taco Bell parking lot.  They produce their own music and have signed to Nick Cannon’s label, Ncredible.  Their first album, Jerkin’ is a Habit: Volume I, has increased the popularity and production of Jerk music.   The group was originally made up of five members: Spotlight, Julian, Langston, Day Day, and Corey.  Corey left the group in 2011 leaving the Ranger$ with only 4 members.

Spotlight, Julian, Langston, DayDay, Corey




The dance crew known as Action Figure$ was created by Gary in 2009.  The group is from South Central Los Angeles and they started out by posting videos on youtube.  As their popularity increased the group started making music and planning parties in addition to dancing.  They now have quite a few sponsors including Vlado footware, TISA, and Rockin Skinnies.




Reject – a backwards version of the “running man” – a popular 80’s dance move

Pindrop – dropping down to the ground while balancing on one leg with the other leg tucked behind the opposite knee.


Jerkin music is typically produced in home studios using personal computers and software such as Reason and FL Studio.  The beats are basic as well as the process.

The style is skinny jeans, kool-aid colored hair, bleached flattops, fro hawks, chromatic tees, and thick soled skateboard shoes.


“Jerkin’ Can’t Die.”  There is a movement that is trying to keep Jerkin’ alive.  I believe with a combination of dance crew’s do-it-yourself videos, self promotion, making music, and entrepreneurship we will see Jerkin’ around for a few more years.


Just like with any dance, dancers will adapt to the new styles and trends and create their own flare.  I see any type of street dance as a platform for innovation and new ideas.  Even though each dance is rooted and influenced by dances that came before there will always be new styles that come about.


Jerkin’ was the newest dance that I chose to look into so I think it is hard to predict the future.  However, Jerkin’ has something that other street dances that came before did not have.  Jerkin has not just dancing but music producers and fashion.  Dance crews are getting sponsors and turning themselves into small businesses that sell fashion products and music through their dance.

For new parents. Sports ballroom dancing.

Still dancing. I decided to write what I comprehended for a long time and slowly myself - the basics of sports ballroom dancing. I write for parents like myself. For parents who can't figure out what's going on. For parents whose head is spinning from the amount of information that needs to be learned.

Do I advise anyone to send their child to ballroom dancing? Of course no.
1. it's expensive
2. takes a lot of time
3. crashes many weekends
4. it's hours of waiting
5. take pity on your nerves!

Let's say you enroll your child in ballroom dancing.
At first, the child only has group lessons twice a week. If the child is small, they are taught to dance:
5 years old
children's polka, ducklings, disco
6 years old
slow waltz, Berlin polka, disco
7 years and older
slow waltz, cha-cha-cha and polka

All clubs teach the same steps. These are the steps required for attestation. For children, the tournament is equal to certification. But there are also certain programs, such as the Six Steps of Mastery (but more on that later).

When your child has learned the first steps, the coach says it's time to participate in tournaments.


After your child's performance, DO NOT FORGET to take a printed PAPER (looks like a ribbon) that says how many points your child scored, who was the main judge, where the event took place, how many couples there were, your child's number. Glue the paper into the tournament book! If there is no book yet, DO NOT throw away the paper, paste it later!
Your child advances to the next level when the coach decides. Or when you score 100 points in tournaments.

DON'T FORGET TO TAKE WATER! Children though to drink! and a chocolate can be useful - it does not overload the stomach before a performance and gives a small boost of energy :)
At tournaments, you should always have pins with you to pin your number, because pins are not always sold.
At the beginning of the year, the coach usually collects money and makes an athlete's book. If the book is ready for the first tournament, don't forget to take it with you. If the book is not ready yet, do not forget to take the birth certificate of the child or your passport, where the child is recorded.
Don't forget to get the name of the coach and the name of the club!

You arrive an hour before the start. You buy an entrance ticket for yourself, a child, and if you want, you can also buy a cup of one dance, but this is not necessary. For example, the Polka Cup.
After buying a ticket, you go and register the child, they give you a number. Dressing up a child:
flesh-colored tights, sandals, white swimsuit, black skirt or (if allowed, rating dress), a bun on the head (nail polish must be without sparkles, no make-up)
white long-sleeve shirt, black trousers, black tie or bow tie, black socks and black dancing shoes

and pin the number on the child's back.
Tournaments usually dance solo, couples and goblets. For kids, the program is called:
Baby 1 and Baby 2

For children from seven years and older
H3, H4 ... H6 - by the number of dances performed.
H6 is followed by classes E, D, C, B, A. A is the highest class. Behind him is a master of sports.

At tournaments, your child dances his program. Judges evaluate the child on a three-point system. The highest score for one dance is 3 points. The lowest is 1. Sometimes the judge may not give a mark at all. Highest score in H3 - 9points. That is, 3 dances, three points for each. Sometimes children who scored 9 points dance again H3. And among them choose the best - 1,2 and 3 place.

If you bought a cup of one dance, then the child dances together with everyone else one dance. If you're lucky, your child will get to the semi-finals, and then to the final. Usually 7 people remain in the final. 1st to 7th place.

First they dance program H3. These kids are coming early. When they complete their program and receive prizes, then, of course, they are going to go home. And at this time, the registration of children who will dance H4 is already underway.
If your child dances two programs, then you first register for H3, and when registration begins for H4, then also for H4. Naturally, the child will have a different number. Don't forget to buy another ticket.

There is also a certification program "Six levels of mastery"
This is a system for assessing the dance skills of children 1-3 years of study. The smallest dancers (5-6 years old, 1st year of training are groups of preschoolers) participate in steps called baby-1 and baby-2. Older dancers (6 years and older) gradually pass from 1 to 6 levels of mastery.

At the certification there are a number of rules and traditions that must be observed. Firstly, at the certification, a certain form of clothing was adopted - for girls it is a white leotard, a black skirt, flesh-colored tights or white socks and dancing shoes (from the 4th step it is allowed to dance in a rating dress), for boys - a white shirt with long sleeves , black trousers, black tie or bow tie, black socks and black dancing shoes. Hairstyle for girls - bun (other options are not allowed if the girl has a short haircut, all hair should be removed as much as possible with invisible pins and styling products), all hair should be collected in a hairstyle with varnish or other styling products (without glitter) and invisible hairpins. Clothing and hairpins should be free of jewelry and sequins. It is better to do your hair in advance, at home, so that you only need to fix it before the performance. Secondly, there is a tradition at certification - children give flowers to your coach. This happens before the start of each stage after the parade of participants. Therefore, you need to have a flower with you - since the coach is present at the certification from morning until evening, and there are usually a lot of students, it is better to give one flower with a slight smell and such that it does not wither. It will not be superfluous for those who pass the baby-1 or baby-2 or step 1 steps to bring some kind of flower container with them so that they do not wither until the evening (for example, a cut 5-liter water bottle) - this will be a manifestation respect for the coach. Thirdly, you must have 4 safety pins - exactly English, they are necessary for pinning the number, ordinary pins can injure the child. Fourthly, participation in certification is paid (usually it is 250-300 rubles per viewer and participant, and the participant pays this fee for each step). And lastly, the coach informs you in advance what time you need to arrive for registration. Attention! If you are late, you may not be registered, and the child will not be able to participate in the assessment. Plan your time in advance so that you arrive without delay.

Where is certification held? Most often, certification takes place in the dance hall "Nika" (Kirovogradskaya street, 21a, nearest metro station "Prazhskaya"). You have arrived for certification, what should be done next? First of all, you need to pay a fee for participation in the certification. Then you need to register. Lists of participants are posted next to the registration (look carefully for which stage the list is posted, sometimes registration is delayed). You need to find your child's name and number in the list. You name this number and the number of the school at registration. If you suddenly did not find your last name on the list, you need to go to registration and simply give the last name and first name of the child, the team and the last name of the coach. The person registering you usually asks for the last name of the child, be careful. As your child is registered, his name and surname will be written on the diploma. After that, you will be given a number. It needs to be pinned on the child's back. In the hall, try to be close to the coach and other children and parents from your club so as not to miss the parade of participants and the warm-up (children are given the opportunity to repeat the dances before the performance). All children are dressed the same, look the same from the back. Be careful not to lose the child in the crowd))). After the end of the performance, you need to quickly remove the number and give it to the coach.

What dances are performed at the assessment?
