How to Do the Roger Rabbit Hip-Hop Dance

Learn how to do the Roger Rabbit from professional dancer Charlene "Chi-Chi" Smith in this Howcast dance video.

We are going to go back, back, back in the time with the Roger Rabbit. I don’t know if you remember that movie, but Roger Rabbit the dance was named because that was the amazingly popular movie at that time.

We have Roger Rabbit, one of our bounce grooves. If you remember what bounce groove means, it just means it’s something that leaves the floor.

Let’s start with the arms. Couple different ways to do it. Of course, you throw in your own flavor. You can make up anyway you want. So we’ll try two different ways, today. We have a little scoop under. Boom, two, three, four. You’ll see some people push forward. One, two, three, four. Notice I’m bouncing, and I’m leaning away from my arms. It helps when you add the feet. So the arms again, are push, two, three, four, or up here, six, seven, eight.

Now for the feet. We’re going to take the right foot. We’re going to pick it up, and we’re going to place it behind our left foot. Once you do that, left foot comes up. So you’re replacing the left foot with the right. So you have, and, one, and two, and double it up, and five, and six, and double it up. You can feel free to do single the whole time, but I like to throw in a little double every now and then.

Let’s try arms and feet together. We have six, seven, eight, and one, and two, and three, and four, and five, and six, and seven, and eight. Nice. I’ll show you from the side. Six, seven, eight, and one, two, three, four, I’m kicking back, back, back. The bigger your back kick, the better your scoop to the front will be.

Let’s try it with music, DJ Hellcat’s in the house.
