It's a catchy song and you don't need much hand-eye coordination to do the dance.

"The mindset of this dance is to dress classy and dance cheesy," Psy (the man behind "Gangnam Style") told Ellen DeGeneres.

While some people watch the music video and become overwhelmed at Psy's impressive dance skills, it's really a simple routine to learn.

Preview – How to do the Gangnam Style dance –[Multimedia-English videos]

Hi, I’m Tammy, from the LondonKPopDance Workshop and I’m gonna teach you how to do the Gangnam Style dance. So the first part of the Gangnam Style dance is the galloping.

          Step 1: The Gallop
Now, we start off with your right hand over your left, almost like you’re holding reins, and keep them loose, and then you gonna go: right, left, right, right – left, right, left, left. Now, with that you gonna do a slight jump or a hop, almo- so that you have the same motion as galloping. Right, so if we put that together… 5, 6, 7, 8 – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.

          Step 2: The Gallop with Lasso
The second part of the dance is the galloping with the lasso. Now you use your left hand in front, and then your right hand as if you’re holding a lasso. Now you twirl your arm eight times, that’s just 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, but you do that with the gallop, so you- again with your right, left, right, right – and then left, right, left, left. So if you put that all together… 5, 6, 7, 8 – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.

          Step 3: The Lasso without Gallop
So, in this dance, they use the lasso in two ways: one way, you’re galloping with the lasso, and then one way you lasso for four counts and then you stop for four counts but you still lasso. So we go: 1, 2, 3, 4, and then you lasso 1, 2, and then slowly for the third time. So if we try that: 5, 6, 7, 8 – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.

          Step 4: The Hip Flick with Foot Shuffle
So the next part of the dance is the hip flick with the foot shuffle. Now, you put your hands on your hips, and you use your right leg to flick out, and you do that four times, but use your hip to help you make that movement, and you do that four times, so you just go: 1, 2, 3, 4, and then, after the fourth one you’ll- you end up here and then you would drag your leg up this way. Now, in the song you hear “sexy lady”, so this, this movement with the leg represents the sexy lady. 5, 6, 7, 8 – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.

          Step 5: The Stretch, Roll and Pop
So the next part of the dance is the stretch with the bum roll and the slight bum pop. So you get into position like this, almost like you’re doing lunges, and then you’ll bounce four times. You’ll go: 1, 2, 3, 4. And then, using your back leg you’ll roll your bum twice, 1, 2. And then, using your leg again, you’ll pop your leg three times: 1, 2, 3. 5, 6, 7, 8 – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8; 1, 2, 3.

          Step 6: The Chest and Arm Pop
Now, from that last move you’ll add three chest pops and then three chest-and-arm pops, so we just go: 1, 2, 3 – 1, 2, 3. So if we try that: 5, 6, 7, 8 – 1, 2, 3; 1, 2, 3.
          Step 7: The Pose
So the final part of this dance is the ending pose. Now, you’ll end up like this, anyway, and then you’ll lean to the right, and then you’ll keep out with your right leg and then you pose. So if we try that: 5, 6, 7, 8 – lean, kick, pose.

Now we’re gonna pull all the parts of the dance together, so if we go: 5, 6, 7, 8 – gallop, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, lasso, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and gallop again, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, lasso, 2, 3, pause; 1, 2, 3, 4, hip, 1, 2, 3, 4, sexy lady, here, gallop, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, stretch, 2, 3, 4, roll, roll, 1, 2, 3; 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3 then here, kick, here. Now we’re gonna do the dance in real time.

PSY: "I will never get tired of doing Gangnam Style"

A South Korean rapper in Moscow talked to reporters on the eve of the MUZ-TV Awards 2013. Reboot.

South Korean rapper PSY , famous for his hit Gangnam Style, arrived in Moscow. On June 7, he will perform at the MUZ-TV Awards - 2013. Reboot . The night before, the musician gave a press conference, led the event Yana Churikova .

Fans gave PSY a very warm welcome by arranging a large-scale flash mob right outside the walls of the Olimpiysky sports complex. A huge crowd performed the Gangnam Style dance to deafening music.

"I'm impressed with the surprise my Russian fans have in store for me," PSY told reporters.

This is the first time for a Korean in Russia, and he could not answer the question of what he had already seen here.

— I just got back from Los Angeles, had a hard flight, several transfers. So far I have not had time to see anything, but airports, roads from airports and hotels are the same everywhere.

The rapper has not yet tried Russian dishes either.

— Did you still drink vodka? Churikova asked.

— I'm not an alcoholic, — PSY smiled, and then he was very surprised that not everyone in Russia likes vodka — he thought otherwise.

The single Gangnam Style was released in July 2012 and in just a few months broke all YouTube views records. The sharks of the pen were interested in the question if PSY was tired of performing this song and dancing his signature dance.

- How many times I have already sung Gangnam Style - do not count, but I do not get tired: this is my job, - PSY answered like a professional. - Yes, you can’t get tired of it, I really like this song. Most memorable performance from Madonna and at the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

Suddenly, a journalist took the microphone, like two drops of water similar to PSY. It turned out that this was the host of one of the Ukrainian TV channels.

“I wanted to say thank you for finding a job because of my resemblance to you,” he said. — We could perform together and receive double fees.

— If I come to Ukraine, I will definitely meet with you, — PSY joked. - Now the trend is this: everyone who has a Korean appearance is trying to copy me (not so long ago in Cannes, another PSY double deceived everyone by attending secular parties. - Note ed. ).

When it came to the appearance of the singer, he was embarrassed.

— Yes, I don’t have any special style, — said PSY, — I just cover the necessary parts of the body with clothes.

But the question of what kind of girls he likes put the overseas star to a standstill. Apparently, he thought that his wife would not start to be jealous.

“We know that you are married, but imagine if you could have several wives,” the journalists persisted.

— Is polygamy allowed in Russia? PSY bulged his eyes.

— No, no! - hastened to reassure the singer Churikov.

“I guess I like fashionable, charming and dimly dressed girls,” the rapper finally admitted.

PSY plans to spend the rest of the evening in a hotel room to gain strength before performing at the "MUZ-TV Awards" on June 7, which will be broadcast live on Yu channel at 17:00 and on MUZ TV at 19:00.

Literal: MINECRAFT STYLE (A Parody of PSY's Gangnam Style) (performer: BorodastoffBlog)

 The plane flies in the sky. Lady creeper suffers. OU! All this points nada reflects. And he shakes his head so beautifully in the music. Lying on a blue chair The camera flies away. A small zombie approaches him. WE BEGIN! A square guy enters the pig stall. Green zombies are fashionable, like Elvis is rocking. In minecraft, too, everyone dances to Gangnam Style. Tell me that in the stall and on the top of the buildings. BABAMI! I'm surrounded by squares a little... BABAMI! Where did you go, life is cruel to me ... Here they are! Some did not cope, merged poorly ... With chicken, axe, fish, meat... There are so many of you! I'll be politically incorrect... But you're a faggot, a square faggot. You can even dance with a lady But you're a fagot, I know you're a fagot. Like your neighbors in the bath, pink bus, Everything is on the street... The explosion killed two people in the background, but the fagot is alive. Dancing in a black suit, he excites them all. And people run away backwards, otherwise it will suddenly stick. Creeper, blow this bastard. The carousel rebels ... when everyone dances this crazy dance on it. A pig is sitting ... does not understand what is happening here. Wow! Nosy rages on the armchair. Even from the ship you can see how your hands are twitching. Now the green garbage will fall on them. In the background, a hairy naked uncle is getting out of the car... In yellow glasses, a Georgian comes up, hits from behind without looking. Now one is dancing like a moron! Who taught you that? And there is no strength to crawl ... The elevator opened the doors, showing us how the blues sang, And they didn't want to learn to dance. The Georgian was offended and ran away, breaking the doors. Convertible flies, but not the way we wanted. Fell in love... with a creeper-chick... in a wig... on a horizontal bar... Fell in love... with a creeper-chick... in a wig... coming to you... Prepare an arrow in your hand, aim at the heart, but where?! SLOW DOWN! Mazila! It was necessary to download the accuracy of the Persian .
