How to grind dance on the floor
Girls, Learn How to Grind Dance In Minutes, Right Now!
This dance is simple, but its implications are not. It’s quite the package of contradictions: a public display of intimacy, a common sight that retains an air of taboo sexuality, a product of newfound sexual liberty that still perpetuates age-old heterosexual gender roles. Grinding exists wherever young people, pulsing music and alcohol intersect. You can witness it happening in house parties, concert venues, music festivals and clubs with flashing strobe lights. Now, gender roles, silent signals and awkward body-to-body interactions govern the dance floor.
Grinding is a form of dancing that is typically found at a club or a party where a man typically dances behind a woman while they both move their hips in the same circular motion.
Grinding can be a bit intimidating for girls. They may not know how to let a guy know they want to grind, where to put the guy’s hands, or how to move their hips. But don’t worry – grinding doesn’t have to be hard and you don’t have to get too intimate with your dance partner, especially if you don’t know him. If you want to know how to grind with sexiness, class, and style, just follow the next steps.

*note that we’re discussing this type of dancing in the common heterosexual setting between a guy and a girl but this works in any couple situation, and we intend no discrimination or exclusion of anyone.

Where did it start?
Grinding goes back to some cultures in the Caribbean. We can trace it back to hip-thrusting dance moves labelled as “whining,” “wining” or “djuking”.
but it is it’s adoption by the hip hop culture that brought this dance style to mainstream America. It eventually “moved to high school and middle school dances (especially proms) in the US and Canada where there have been cases of administrators attempting to ban it due to its explicit nature” as one Wikipedia entry noted.
“Everywhere, boys in baggy pants and girls in tight ones gripped each others’ hips, from the front or the rear, and pushed, pushed. Pairs of girls entwined thighs and swiveled low to the ground. Groups of dancers formed “freak trains,” lines of tightly pressed bodies undulating through space.
All the moves had two elements in common: hips and friction.” As this article on Education Week noted back in 2001.
In 2015, a high school principal in Maine cancelled school dances because of students’ dance moves and the, “culture of grinding,” reports CBS Boston. “It is by no means the students’ fault, but the dancing they have witnessed on MTV/VHS/movies involves primarily only sexually suggestive grinding,” Record explains in the letter.
A predecessor to grinding as a sexually charged high-contact social dance was “The Bump”, which was popular in the 1970s, in which the contact between partners generally involved the hips or buttocks of one dancer “bumping” those of the other dancer in temporary contact. Other predecessor elements of grinding may be attributed to the 1987 film Dirty Dancing, and the famous lambada dance which became famous in the 1980s that featured grinding actions.
One additional note to keep in mind is that grinding is a form of dance that overlaps with a multitude of genres. You’ll see hip hop fans grinding, but also on dance music festival grounds with Trap music, Dubstep, and many others sub-genres including EDM.
Time To Learn How To Grind
You need to learn to grind dance (sometimes people call it freak dance or freaking) if you want to be able to get a little freaky on the dance floor. If you’re a beginner and want to know how to grind with a guy, or how to grind with a girl, this is section is for you.
First and foremost we need to mention that sometimes this form of dance will lead to unwanted actions that would happen without the partner’s consent. Please make sure there’s a sort of agreement with the other person before proceeding with such a dance as it is quite intimate in nature as we have just discussed.
The beginning of the dance
Unless you already know the guy you want to dance with and he’s led you to the dance floor, you’ll have to approach the dance floor on your own first. But if you already have a guy, then you can skip this section. Start by dancing with a friend or two. Someone you trust and from your initial circle. Here, it’s all about doing your own thing and having a good time.
Even when you’ve found your target, avoid looking around desperately. Instead, you’ll make sure the guys see that you’re having a a great time and they’ll come to you. Positivity like this is infectious and you’ll want people who want to be with you on the dance floor. Add to the attraction by showing off your dance moves with your friends. Let the guys see how you can work your body, follow the rhythm and enjoy your time.
Found your guy? Great! Maybe it’s a good idea to lock eyes with him from across the room, this will show your interest without much effort (we’re pretty sure you know what we mean here). You’ll want to start moving closer to him, do it with the group altogether, that way it will look like a natural, gradual move, and nothing very creepy. Then, it will be a matter of waiting for him to come closer to you, too. If you lock eyes from across the room for one second and then one inch away from him the next, you won’t look cool. So avoid that.
Extra tips to keep in mind: move towards him during the course of a song, it looks better and more natural that way and avoid crowding the guy, so maybe your friends would follow but keep some distance.
At this point, some sort of physical move needs to be done.

The Brushing Up
You should look at him and start some sort of interaction with him. Lock eyes with the guy, and maybe even give him a cute smile and then look away. Then, move even closer to him and let your body brush up against his, whether you’re facing him and touching him with your hands, or turning away form him and occasionally brushing up against him. This will communicate your interest and signal to the guy you intend to dance.
Begin The Grind Dance
Step in front of him so that you lock eyes and know you’re going to dance with each other. Spend a minute dancing in front of him, moving to the beat, and then slowly begin to turn so he can start dancing behind you and you can officially begin to grind.
First, you have to get in grinding position so step in front, facing away from him. Though you can mix it up once in a while, the typical grinding position is when a guy stands behind a girl. You can leave about a foot between your bodies and don’t have to get incredibly intimate to start grinding (especially if you don’t know him).
Next, both you should bend your knees so that you’re lower to the ground. If the guy is much taller than you, then you won’t have to bend your knees very much. If the guy isn’t much taller than you, however (happens if you’re wearing high heels for example) then you should bend your knees a bit further so he’s a bit above you.
Now it’s time to move your hips and butt in one continuous circular motion, continuing to move from side to side while moving your legs up and down just a bit while keeping your knees bent. If the guy knows what he’s doing, then his hips should find a similar rhythm to yours. Both your hips should be moving in the same direction to the beat of the music.
Feeling bold? Know the guy you’re dancing with? You can touch the guy’s front side with your butt as you move it from side to side. But you can also maintain your distance. There are no obligations, keep in mind this is your move, and the dance is under your control.
The next thing to do is to move your arms and chest to the beat of the music, rotating your arms and chest in the same fluid motion. Look ahead or slightly down as you continue to work your arms and chest while you move your hips. You can bring your arms down so they’re on your knees or near your waist, and wait for the guys hands to land on top of yours or around your waist as you continue to dance.
These are the basics in general. To help make things even more clear and give you extra pointers, we’re providing below some additional training:

For learning grind dance, one needs to do away with inhibitions. Or on the contrary, if one is a shy individual, this type of dance can prove to be a fantastic ice breaker. Scroll down to know how to get those steps right!
Christine was always enthusiastic for dancing. She knew salsa, tango, cha cha and a few more styles. Her favorite was club dancing. She used to impress one and all with her dancing skills. There was however, one thing which she did not have in her dancing kitty. That was how to freak dance or do the grind dance. Seeing the people in a club doing the grind one day, she finally made the decision to learn it.
Has this happened to you? Did you feel something is amiss when you went to a club just because you did not know how to grind dance or what is called freak dancing? Well, that would not happen the next time you go as you would surely be getting to learn it through this text below!
Learn How to Grind Dance
Shall We Dance
You cannot do the grind if you are not with a partner. So when you go to a club or any place where you may do that, a partner is required. The fun begins after you get a partner.
Dirty Dancing, Part I
After you get a partner, get into the act and the position. Facing in the same direction, with the guy behind or in front (either ways), one individual’s groin should be in contact with the other’s butt. That is one of the basic things. Then you have to grind or rub your groin and hip area against your partner’s.
Dirty Dancing, Part II
Once you get in the groove, get some flattering and seductive moves in. It is time now to face your partner and straddle in each other’s laps. Ideally the girl supports her weight on the floor using her hands and the partner has to be standing directly behind. He holds her legs or feet up.
Dance with Me
Bending your knees and swaying rhythmically to the music is the next in the line up. Continue with the grinding motions, that is pressing together front to back and back to front. Eventually, the girl should make grinding moves around the crotch of the guy and follow a pattern. It could even be the case that the girl leads off, with hip movements and the guy follows.
These are the basic things involved in the process. It is just grinding or rather rubbing your pelvis and groin area onto your partner. There are, of course, variations where a chain of dancers either mixed or single sex dance to the tune or 2 dancers of the same-sex have a member of the opposite sex in between. In case you really want to build up more on how do you grid, here are some grind dancing tips.
It is all in the hips my dear gals and guys, particularly for the girls. It is imperative to know how to move your hips in clockwise and counter clockwise movements to the music beats.
Another important factor when it comes to grind dance is to pop your shoulders back and forth or up and down. That helps in regulating the beat of the song. It also allows to have better hip movements. Moreover, it is also imperative to keep your moves subtle to avoid coming across as vulgar or slutty or cheap.
For a guy, if you ask a stranger to dance with you, it is better to begin standing behind the girl. A stranger would not normally want you to move in closer immediately. Thus, technically it is a better option to play it safe till you are sure that she does not mind and is liking it.
A sure shot mantra to be a good grind dancer is to dance a little, move away from your partner. Again come back, do the grind, move away once more. Then do the front grind a bit and then again do the jog together with the guy behind! That will make you an instant hit on the dance floor and will also show that you respect your partner!
All in all, you cannot be shy to learn this dance form. You need to have that spunk in you and one has to be comfortable with such a concept! That is where the last thing comes in and that is to enjoy dancing in this manner! I say adios for now! Meanwhile you go and have a hearty grind!

How to learn to dance twerk - Lifehacker
November 21, 2020 Likbez Sports and fitness
Butt size doesn't matter!
Author of Lifehacker, athlete, CCM
Twerk is just a super sexy dance that will pump your plasticity, and at the same time load your abs and back muscles well. To begin with, we will learn a few basic movements, and then we will diversify the dance vocabulary and analyze the main mistakes. And at the end you will find a bonus in the form of a playlist with suitable music. nine0003
If you have problems with your lumbar spine, exercise with caution, or better yet, consult your doctor.
Learn how to do basic elements
Booty pop back
Stand with your feet wider than shoulder width, toes slightly apart. Bend your knees and place your hands on your hips, turning them inward with your fingers, bend your lower back.
From this position, twist the pelvis down, and then, due to the deflection in the lower back, return it to its original position. Imagine that you are trying to reach the top of your head with your pelvis. nine0003
It is important to fix the upper back and work only on the lower back. You can not strain the gluteal muscles, otherwise the movement will turn out to be clamped.
If difficulties arise, try the lead-in exercise first. Place your hands on your hips so that your middle fingers rest on the protruding bones of the pelvis in front, and your thumbs - behind, closer to the sacrum. Bend your knees, move your pelvis down and then up, controlling the movement with your hands.
When you feel more confident, remove your hands and connect the movement with your knees. When the pelvis goes down, the knees bend, when it rises, they unbend. No need to lock the knees at the extreme point, they should remain slightly bent. nine0003
The pelvis moves back not only due to the straightening of the knees. The lower back must work.
Front booty pop
This movement is very similar to the previous one, only the emphasis is on pushing the pelvis forward rather than backward.
Set your feet wide and point your toes slightly out. You can put your hands on your hips to better feel the tilt. At the same time, bend your knees and sharply move your pelvis forward so that your butt goes down, and then bend your lower back and bring your pelvis back. nine0003
The emphasis is on the first phase of the movement, when the butt goes down. It is important at this moment not to pinch the buttocks, but to change the position of the pelvis due to the tension of the abdominal muscles.
Try other twerk moves
This element repeats the usual booty pop, only the movement of the pelvis in it is double: down-down, up-up.
Stand with your feet wider than shoulder width. At the same time, turn one leg with your toe and knee out and transfer your weight to the opposite thigh. Then, with a small jump, switch sides. nine0003
First try to move slowly to get the point, then speed up. Jump relaxed.
Up down twerk
Arch your lower back and push your pelvis back. On the count of “one”, simultaneously round the lower back, bringing the pelvis forward, bend the knees and bring the shoulders forward. On the count of "two", bend your lower back and take your ass back in a semi-squat.
On the count of three, straighten your knees, round your lower back, and roll your shoulders forward. On the count of four, arch your back in the thoracic region, straightening your shoulders. nine0035
It turns out that at the lower point you bend in the lower back, and at the top - in the chest.
To feel the movement, start moving slowly. Place your feet shoulder-width apart, place your palms opposite the pelvis. In turn, touch the palms with one or the other bone of the pelvis. Accelerate gradually.
You can wobble while standing upright or bent over. Practice slowly bending over and back up as you move. Important: you should not pinch, otherwise stiffness will occur and no shaking will work. nine0003
Get into a twerk stance, lower your right thigh first, then your left thigh. Then, one by one, lift them up to their original position. At first, perform the elements slowly, with fixation at each point, and then gradually accelerate.
You can do this movement a little higher. In this case, start with a stance on straight legs in an incline. In the same way, lower the right and left hips in turn, bending the knees, and then raise the hips, straightening the legs. nine0003
Rise up on your toes and turn your heels in and out in a small range. Arch your lower back, try to relax your hips as much as possible.
This element can be performed in a straight position or bent over, moving both legs at once, or one at a time.
Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width, point your toes forward, tilt your body and rest your hands on your hips. Rotate your pelvis, lowering and raising it as you go. nine0003
You can do this either in a bent over position on your hips or standing up.
Start in a twerk position with your toes pointing forward. Do one regular booty pop in place, then another with the toes and knees turned out to the sides, and then the next one with them returning to a straight position.
Continue turning your toes and knees out and back, tilting your pelvis as you move.
Place your feet shoulder-width apart, rise on your toes. Pull your pelvis back a little. Move quickly from foot to foot, trying to relax your buttocks. nine0003
Raise your right leg to the side, turn it with your toe and knee inward. From this position, simultaneously transfer the weight to the left thigh and turn the raised leg with the toe outward. Return your foot to the floor and repeat on the other side.
Try moving in other positions
Twerk can be danced not only while standing, but also while squatting, on all fours and even upside down on your hands, with your feet resting against the wall. Try different positions - this will help diversify your dance. nine0003
This is the same booty pop, only squatting. If you don't have enough stretch to move freely in a deep squat, work on your hip mobility first.
Offset to one side
Good stretch is also required for this option. Otherwise, you will not be able to relax and move freely.
On all fours
First practice the standing element to get used to it. Raise one leg on the toe, turning it with the knee outward and at the same time leaning on the opposite thigh. Then smoothly switch sides. nine0035
Now place your palms on the floor, arch your lower back, bend your knees and lift your heels off the floor. Perform a familiar movement in a new position.
This is enough to get you started. Try, combine the movements with each other and, if something fails, correct the mistakes.
Understand why you don't succeed
There are three main reasons why instead of twerking you get some bullshit. And the size of the priests has nothing to do with it.
1. You lack flexibility
To twerk well, you must have good mobility in the lumbar spine and hips. If flexibility is lacking, you can improve it by doing stretching exercises.

2. You work your upper back and shoulders
All basic movements require arching in the lower back. It is due to the lower spine that you feed the pelvis back and forth. But if during booty pop you bend in the thoracic spine and connect your shoulders, the movement will not look like a twerk.
3. You're too tight
This is probably the biggest beginner's mistake, which results in a tight, wooden pelvic movement instead of sexual shaking.
Don't push yourself too hard, relax your buttocks and thighs, shake off tension from your arms and shoulders. All elements should be carried out easily and without clamps. The best way to relax and feel the movement is to turn on the music.
Pick up the music
We found a cool audio compilation that makes you want to dance to and not stop. The description on YouTube has the names of all the tracks.
And another big selection, this time from Yandex.Music. There are some great tracks too, and some of them are pretty slow paced so you can learn the moves in a relaxed and casual way. nine0003
Let us know how your twerking progresses in the comments. It turns out?

One of the poorest areas of New York - the Bronx is considered to be the birthplace of break dance. It was there, in the sixties, that his story began. At that time, with the increased popularity of electronic music, elements of various rotations on the ground were very often used among young dancers, this direction was called Good Foot.
The dancers, one might say, “broke” the usual movements to the beat of the records, there were no rotations yet in the usual breakdance movements. As the culture consolidated its position, the dancers were forced to stretch their imaginations even more for active opposition in dance battles. There was even a slogan saying that it is better to fight with the help of creativity, without resorting to weapons, and the youth fought, gathered in teams to defeat their opponent. That is why the teams developed their own individual style, which laid the foundation for the breakdance sub-styles. nine0003
Such dances became so "accustomed" and became fashionable that some time later, in the seventies, the legendary rapper Afrika Bambaata offered to hold competitions on a cardboard surface among New York dancers. And in 1977, a young Rock Steady Crew appeared, which made a very big contribution to the development of this direction. And already in the eighties, the team held a world tour, showing a new direction in dance to the whole world.
Break dance includes elements of previously unrelated martial arts and techniques, such as:
* Brazilian wrestling capoeira ;
* American Jazz;
* Korean kung fu;
* twist et al.
1970s-1980s, break dance culture becomes an integral part of hip hop.
At the very beginning of the eighties, breakdance spread throughout Europe, becoming as popular as it was at home. But there was no lack of information. On television, they told how to correctly perform certain elements of the dance, and in some educational institutions they even replaced physical education lessons with break dance lessons. By the end of the eighties, "break" became an independent direction in art. And it is art, not sports. At competitions, the score is not for the correct execution of movements, not for the observance of techniques, but for the self-expression of the performer, his sense of tact. nine0003
The film "Breakin"", released in 1985, made break dance very popular in the USSR. The first production of dances of this style in the Soviet Union was organized by Alexei Kozlov, after which a real dance boom came. dance style.True, the so-called upper break or boogie first gained popularity. This is a type of movement where everything happens in a vertical position, the main elements are performed with the hands, but neither the hands nor the body itself come into contact with the floor once again.0003
Top break dance can be divided into several styles:
* electric boogie (electricboogie) - plastic that imitates an electric discharge, including a variety of elements, such as sliding, ticking, waves, etc .;
* robot (robot) - the principle is the same as that of the electric boogie, but all movements are stylized as mechanical;
* king-tat (kingTut) - based on movements performed mainly by arms at an angle of 90 °, which is similar to ancient Egyptian dances;
* pop-locking (poplocking) - this style is based on rhythmic swaying of the body, jumps, sharp movements of the hands of locking and poping. nine0003
1987, 1988, break dance gains popularity in the USSR, becomes a mass movement. However, the lack of information hindered the desired development.
1990-1991, during the collapse of the Soviet Union, when it became possible to receive information from the West, the dance direction began to be hampered by political and economic events.
However, it was in the early nineties in the USSR that the lower break dance or, as it is also called, breaking, became widespread. In this variant, most of the movements and techniques are performed on the floor and acquire power performance. nine0003
The lower break, like the upper one, can be distinguished by styles:
* style (style) - begins with solo improvisation, and then is complemented by running, footwork in headstands;
* power tricks (powertricks) - a combination of tricks, friezes, e-twist, knee jumps, etc.;
* power move (powermove) - this is already the most spectacular and complex style, consisting of elements such as a helicopter ("helik"), consisting of rotations with legs, standing on a support from hands and head, a windmill ("windmill") - the same as the helicopter in fact, headspin (“head”) - consists in rotation on the head, backspin - rotation on the back. Also in this style there are jumps on hands, sweeps, machmills (“barrel”), tartle, etc.
Nowadays, break dance is widely popular all over the world, but the USA and the East (Japan, Korea) are the biggest admirers of this culture. In Europe, he is also known, although to a lesser extent, but it is in Germany that the world championship in breakdance takes place - The Battle of the Year.
Since 2004, another international competition has been held - Red Bull BC One, which in 2011. took place in Moscow. Competitions are held on a specially equipped round stage, surrounded by cameras that film the entire performance from all possible angles. nine0003
And now, walking along the street past the guys dancing break dance, it's hard to look away. In this dance, it is impossible to predict in advance what will happen next, what movements will be used.

To achieve such results, you need considerable ingenuity, willpower and physical fitness. This allows, while doing break dance, to strengthen muscles, correct the figure and get a lot of pleasure not only from the process itself, but, of course, the result - the admiring glances of the audience. nine0003

The history of breakdancing began in the late 60s in New York, in one of the poorest areas - the Bronx. At this time, electronic music was gaining popularity among young dancers who used the elements of rotation on the ground and called this direction Good Foot.

What is break dancing?
Many people, including established professional dancers, often view breakdancing as a form of dance that peaked in the 1980s and is now dead. However, this is very far from the truth. Breakdancing actually originated 20 years before its heyday in popularity - in the early 1970s, this type of dance was popular with young African Americans and other ethnic minorities in the Bronx. Children began to bring their radios to the streets and try different dance moves. These dancers became known as "breakers" because of the association with starting the dance after turning on the radio. nine0003
The evolution of dance in society
Quite quickly, break dancing caught the attention of more experienced dance professionals, and it soon became popular throughout the United States. The dance often took place on the street, was used to peacefully resolve disputes by warring gangs, and soon these informal competitions turned into more organized events. Soon, dance groups began performing breakdancing at big events and discos. Today, there are worldwide competitions dedicated specifically to break dancing, and many dance studios offer break dancing lessons. Often the steps of this dance are taught in conjunction with more modern hip hop. Breakdancing is now an international phenomenon and is popular in every corner of the globe. nine0003
Breakdancing has four unique movements - Power Elements, Freezes, Toprock and Footwork. Each of these has its own function in the overall breakdancing choreography, and the dance essentially consists of a combination of these four types of movements.
Toprock is a series of movements performed in a standing position. This series of moves requires good flexibility and a sense of rhythm, and many dancers use Toprock as an introduction to a series of dance tricks. nine0003
Footwork is the exact opposite - it is done mostly on the floor.
Power movements - rotational elements that can be used in any phase of the dance.
Friezes - freezing for a couple of seconds in one position after the end of any set of movements.
