Hey everybody. So, we are going to break down the wobble dance today and if you have ever been to a BBQ, a wedding or a cruise, you will hear this, you will see this dance, you will hear this song on constant rotation about every 10 minutes. People love it. It is the new electric slide. We are going to break this down. The magic numbers are one and five. Just remember that. One, you are going to jump forward. Boom. Easy. Ok. Lets try that again. So we have, 5,6,7,8, jump 1. Now, when you jump here you are just going to groove, body roll, do whatever you kind of like. Any salt and pepper, onion, garlic flavor you got. So, you are going to go, 1,2,3,4, jump 5,6,7,8. Next part, just lean to the right, step out to the right with your right foot. Everything with the right foot. For you, it is going to look like left, for me it is my right. 5,6,7,8,1,2,3,4, other side, 5,6,7,8. Good, lets take that a little slower. So, we just jump back. 5,6,7,8, jumping out to the right. 1,2,3,4, to the left, 5,6,7,8. You have to groove, you always have to groove. You can use a little salt. So, you go 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8. Repeat. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8. Now, for the sauce. Some people will go up, up and cha cha cha. Up, up and cha cha cha. We are going to try mixing them up a little bit together. So, we will go up, 2, back 3, 4, now up 6 and cha cha cha. Now, lets try this with some music. I think you got it. [Music Plays] So, get your groove first. You want to be ready. You do not what to just start dancing from here. 5,6,7,8. There you have it. Through your own little flavor in it. Have a little fun. There is no limit to what you can do with the wobble dance.
