My name is Randy R.C. Connor, choreographer to the stars. I’ve worked with Britney Spears, P. Diddy Combs, Prince, Mary J. Blige, Janet Jackson, Jay-Z. We’re gonna just break down some moves, that you can use at the club, at the parties, at home, in your bathroom — just have fun guys, so let’s get started. C’mon! If you don’t know how to dance, this is really simple — this is basic, have fun! It’s just a 1, 2 step and it goes a little something like this. First we’re gonna start with the feet. It’s just step, place your left foot in front, step, place your right foot in front — to any beat you can do this; it’s just a rhythm, whether it’s fast or slow. Boom, you just want to go here, boom — nice and smooth; that’s the basic foundation to dance — just a step. Boom, just always put your feet forward. And bounce and bounce and bounce and bounce. Snap your fingers if you have to — keep your rhythm going. Feel good; have fun with it. Put a smile on your face and enjoy yourself. So that’s the basic step for how to dance. Here we go, let’s have some music — that sounds real good. Remember, step, forward. See, it goes with anything. And bounce and bounce — anybody can do this. Work with me now! Throw this in: bounce a little bit, take it down, take it down. This is old school right here. Now what you can do you can double up on that a little bit. So you can double up, you can do it single, you can do it however you want. But just make sure you have fun. Feel good about yourself and do the 1, 2 step.
