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!

In addition to the 10 moves on this list, STEEZY Studio has 100+ other FREE beginner classes where you can learn step-by-step from the world’s best teachers.

How to learn to dance: video tutorials for those who are not afraid to try

January 28, 2017 Likbez Sports and fitness

If you decide to learn how to dance, don't delay. Just repeat after the instructors the basic movements of modern, street, ballroom and social dances.

Iya Zorina

Author of Lifehacker, athlete, CCM

Answers to the main questions

Is it difficult to learn to dance?

It's really no more difficult than anything else you're new to. Dance directions are very different from each other. Even if you have mastered one of them, it will be unusual for you to do the other. nine0003

However, all dances are connected with the ability to control one's body. And if this is not new to you (for example, you were engaged in martial arts, gymnastics, swimming, and even more so dancing), it will be easier for you to adapt to new movements than a beginner who is not friendly with his body.

Even if you have a rather wooden body, you should not despair. The secret of success is constant practice.

Learning to dance from video lessons is more difficult than from courses. If your body is flexible and obedient, you can still do something similar to the movements of the instructor from the video. If not, you can quickly become disillusioned with dancing: the difference between what is shown in the video and what you will see in the mirror will be too strong. nine0003

Still worth a try. At least in order to determine the appropriate direction.

How many times a week do you dance?

Muscles may initially ache after exercise. But, unlike strength training or running, the body does not require a recovery period.

Therefore, you can safely practice dancing all the time. One of my teachers said to dance 25 hours a day. In any case, the more you dance, the more noticeable the progress. nine0003

How to learn how to dance modern dances

From this direction we have chosen three types that can often be found in the schedules of fitness clubs and dance schools. And the first - plastic and insanely beautiful contemporary.

Contemporary

Abel M/Flickr.com

Contemporary combines elements of modern jazz, yoga and martial arts, seasoned with improvisation and attention to breathing. This is freedom and plasticity - the natural beauty of movement.

Here is a clip with a contemporary combination. Give it a try, just be sure to warm up and stretch well before you teach. nine0003

And here is the second part:

By the way, about the warm-up. In the video below - a full lesson with a warm-up, stretching and analysis of the combination. In English, but everything is clear and without translation.

If you do not have time to repeat or consider how some movement is done, set the speed to 0.25.

If you like combinations but can't repeat them yet, here are some more videos of routine contemporary lessons.

You will most likely have to do the same in the dance school before you can perform beautiful combinations.

Strip plastic

imperiamarket.by

Many people confuse pole exercises and strip plastic. The second is just a sensual dance that can be performed without a pole.

Doing strip plastic, you will not stand at the barre and pull the toe. Everything here is based on the natural sexuality of the female body. Of course, many teachers diversify strip plastic with elements of contemporary or modern, Latin American dances and other areas, but it all depends on the teacher. nine0003

How beautiful your dance will look again depends on how well you know how to control your body, how mobile your joints are and how stretched your muscles and tendons are.

In the video below there is an analysis of the combination. Not too simple, but very sensual and beautiful. And you don't have to move on the floor, so your knees don't get hurt.

And here is a playlist with strip plastic lessons from different dance schools. There are both individual movements and combinations. nine0003

And one more, simpler combination. Try it if the first one doesn't work.

Belly dance (bellydance)

·júbilo·haku·/Flickr.com

This is a sensual and beautiful dance that, among other things, helps to develop plasticity and even get rid of some health problems.

There are a lot of belly dance lessons on YouTube. Below are some of them.

The basic movements are explained here very clearly:

And the second part:

Below is a playlist with five lessons for beginners from another teacher.

How to learn to dance street dancing

Hip-hop

pinterest.com

Hip-hop has only been around for about 50 years. But during this time, many trends and styles have appeared, with different elements, plasticity, and special features.

In addition, modern hip-hop is often complemented by movements from other dance styles, which provides even richer vocabulary and original combinations. nine0003

But before you come up with your own combinations, you need to master the basics. In the playlist below you will find basic moves, steps and many combinations. They explain everything in an accessible way. If you can't make it, slow down the video speed.

The videos in the next big playlist explain the concepts of inertia, manipulation and isolation in hip-hop. There's also a story about improvisation, battle behavior if you're up for it, and a few variations of ground hip-hop moves (on the floor) to diversify your combinations. nine0003

Breakdancing

Colonne/Flickr.com

Breakdancing consists of different elements: tricks and power movements on the floor, waves, fixations, and also changes in the levels at which the dance is performed.

Here on this channel there is training in different styles: Waving, King Tut, Robot, - analysis of the technique of power elements and basic movements at different levels.

Below is a video detailing the 6 steps element from Footwork.

And here you can see how the "turtle" is performed. nine0003

Here is a voluminous playlist, which contains quite a lot of breakdance elements with a detailed analysis of the technique of dance and strength elements.

Twerk

Lauren Wood/Flickr.com

Sexy dance in which you need to actively work the buttocks, hips, stomach and arms. In this playlist you will find several lessons with analysis of twerk movements.

Waltz

vimbly.com

At least once in your life you will surely need a waltz. Moreover, it is not so difficult to dance it at an amateur level. nine0003

Here are four good lessons that will teach you how to hold your hands and do the basic waltz steps in pairs or individually.

How to learn to dance social dances

Social dances are not designed for competition, but for communication between partners and enjoyment. Improvisation is welcome here, through which the dancer can express himself, his feelings and emotions.

Bachata

pinterest.com

This dance comes from the Dominican Republic. He is very sensual and sometimes erotic. The basis of bachata is four steps with an emphasis on the last one. In the dance, there are rotations and throws of the partner, small lifts. nine0003

Despite the fact that bachata is a pair dance, solo combinations can also be taught. For example, if you don't have a partner yet.

In the video below - an overview of the main steps. Where to transfer body weight, how to hold hands, how to focus - everything is told in the most detailed way.

And here is a variation of bachata from the same teacher.

Below is a playlist for those who want to dance bachata together. These are Dominican bachata lessons from the Imagine dance school. nine0003

Kizomba

youtube. com

This is a passionate couple dance from Africa, more specifically from Angola. Now it is performed all over the world and is especially popular in France and Portugal.

Steps, lots of hip work and close contact with partner. Sometimes very tight. For example, in the style of tarraxinha, a slower and more sensual version of this social dance.

Here is a playlist of kizomba lessons.

And another playlist with videos from another dance studio. nine0003

cool beautiful dances at home for guys (video)

Often people pay attention to the opinions of others. It seems to them that if something does not work out for them, then they will be condemned, they will be discussed. This also applies to the ability to dance. Many do not go to dance studios just because they are afraid to look ridiculous, they think that their age or physique does not allow them to attend such events. This is a big misconception! nine0003

Do not despair. Beginning amateurs can learn how to dance beautifully at home, and on their own. We will tell and show you how to do it.

What gives dance?

There are many advantages in dancing:

  • the ability to keep fit;
  • maintenance of optimal weight;
  • new acquaintances, communication;
  • good mood.

If you have a desire, do it. Start with simple recommendations for beginner amateurs, which you will read and see on this page. nine0003

Where to start?

So, you have decided to learn to dance at home. How to learn to dance at home, where to start?

There are many tutorials and guides to learn how to dance for beginners at home. But, they are unlikely to help - it takes practice. You can consult with friends, acquaintances, watch the performances of professionals.

In order to learn to dance at home, first decide which dances you like best. Focus on a specific style. This is important because different dance styles require a specific image. nine0003

Some people like fast, incendiary Latin American dances, others will choose smooth, mysterious iconic Indian movements. Many people prefer the waltz as a classic. There are many options, so try to find yours.

First of all, stop being ashamed of yourself at home. Many people are ashamed even of their reflection in the mirror. Understand that you are doing this only for yourself, no one sees you, and the first, awkward movements will be left alone with you.

Choose a certain style according to your temperament. When the style is chosen, try to choose a suit for homework. This is necessary to fully match the image. nine0003

Don't worry that you don't have a partner for the waltz yet - one will appear in time.

To learn how to dance at home for beginners, you can recommend training video courses. Memorize different techniques, try to repeat them, listen to music, feel the rhythm of the dance.

The most important thing from the start of learning at home is to open up to yourself. You have decided to learn first of all for yourself. When you realize that you are no longer embarrassed by your own reflection in the mirror, you can proceed to the next step. nine0003

Beginners may be advised to do a regular, physical workout before class. Warm up your muscles to avoid stretching with sudden movements.

Basic lessons

You can learn to dance at home. Try hip-hop, tectonics, break dance, strip plastic. Let's focus on street dances, which are easier to start with:

  • street dance. Professional movements are not required here. You can mix different directions, add some tricks from yourself. Use a combination of rhythmic, sharp and smooth movements. Be yourself, loosen up, show your imagination; nine0203
  • listen to music, follow its rhythm. This is the secret of street tricks;
  • street dance does not require consistency and certainty in movements. You dance, improvise on the go;
  • while dancing, don't forget about your hands - they are also involved.

For those who want to master the basic movements and learn how to dance beautifully at home, there are video lessons offered below.

Don't forget to choose the appropriate music for the dance.

You can choose any dance direction that you like. The main thing is that it matches your mood, desires. Start - you will not notice how you will become more confident at various club and corporate parties, and gradually learn. nine0003

A man in dance

There is an opinion that only girls need dancing skills. This is wrong, because in this way a man can interest the girl he likes, express his mood, emotions. How to learn to dance beautifully for a man at home?

You can again turn to friends, or watch them in a club, at a party. Watch more dance video lessons. To learn how to dance, you need more trials and practice. Start your day with music, dance moves at the mirror. Learning to dance a guy is not as difficult as it seems. nine0003

Many guys like to dance while brushing their teeth or cooking. Use these techniques in club dances! There are not many professional dancers in discos and clubs. Young people improvise more. Knowing a few basic dance techniques for beginners, you can safely go dancing.

Style without limits

Hip-hop is a modern style suitable for very young girls. This cool dance for girls is not difficult to learn at home. nine0003

In this style, the main thing is to attract attention. If there is a sense of rhythm, love for music, a desire to please others, then there will be no problems for beginners.
