Unconventional dances are a craze nowadays. All we want is another excuse to go crazy. In the ever expanding list of these quirky dances, like the “Gangnam style” or the “Harlem shake”, comes another worthy addition―the wobble line dance.

Line dances have been very popular since the 1950s. The wobble has become famous in the last couple of years. Today, you can see people doing the wobble everywhere, right from parties to weddings to reunions. In these dances, a group of people stand in one or two lines and do similar steps. The best thing is that anybody can wobble; yes, it’s very simple and super fun. No need to worry even if you are a beginner or haven’t heard of this dance as we come to your rescue with these step-by-step instructions. So ladies and gentlemen, young and old alike, it’s time to do the wobble.

Do not immediately start the steps; get into the groove first, feel the music, loosen your body, and then begin.

Step 1: Jump Forward

Jump forward (one-step distance) in such a way that both your feet touch the ground simultaneously. This is the first step of the four-count step.

Step 2: Wobble your hips

As soon as you jump, start swaying your hips from right to left. This is called wobbling your hips. Don’t forget to cross your arms to the beat. Wobble your hips for four counts.

Step 3: Jump back

Jump back to your original position to start the four-count step again.

Step 4: Wobble them again!

Now repeat the wobble again. Sway your hips from side to side, and move your hands as well.

Step 5: Twist to the right

Now it’s time to wobble your entire body. Twist to the right in such a way that you are facing left. Now sway your shoulders and hips alternatively for a four-count step.

Step 6: Twist to the left

Twist to the left, and repeat the wobble of the shoulders and hips. You can do the hand roll at chest level or cross them as well according to the beat.

Step 7: Wobble and wobble more!

Enjoy the dance by wobbling your body like a waving flag. When your shoulders are in front, your hips should be at the back and vice versa. You can try a variety of movements with your hands.

Step 8: Do the step

Now, it’s time to “do the step.” It’s a four-count step, and your hands should sway as well. Take a step with your right leg, and then bring the left leg in front as well. Take a step with your right leg again returning to the original position followed by your left leg.

Step 9: Step forward and do the cha-cha

You can also go forward normally and come back by doing the cha-cha step. Step your right leg in front, followed by the left. Now, do the cha-cha; that is step back with your right foot, left foot, and right foot again. But this should be quicker with more swaying of the hips.

Step 10: Cha-cha step

Now do the cha-cha step in your place. Take a forward step with your right leg, followed by a backward step with the left one. Quickly step in place with your right foot, left foot, and right foot again.

Step 11: Swing to the right

Now start swaying your body from side-to-side and cross your arms to the beat. Continue wobbling your shoulders and hips alternatively.

Step 12: Swing to the left

Gradually turn your body to the left and continue the wobble. Turn very slowly and naturally, continuously swaying your body.

Now, you will be facing left. Repeat all the above steps, complete the entire circle, or continue this pattern till the song ends. The above steps are the basics; you can combine them or try out different variations as well.

Dance is about losing all your inhibitions and having fun, so just relax and let yourself loose. Don’t get too mechanical with the steps; feel the music and do the wobble!

Tips for getting better better in Line dancing:

1. Learn the counts. Line dancing is not hard when you can count the entire choreography as you do it. Each single step, hip movement, or wobble has to be timed to the music.

2. Distinguish between a “step” and a “touch”. A step is when you change your weight on the foot and a touch is when you do not change weight on the foot. Touches are very commonly used to switch directions so make sure you know when its a touch versus a step.

3. The magic is in between the steps. While the steps and the counts are set, the way you dance in between is what counts. Put your own style into the steps. You can do many different things with your hips, upper torso and arms to stand out.
