How to Do the Wop Hip-Hop Dance

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

Okay. So we got the Wop we’re working on now. Another dance from a little back in the day, right? So we’re going to start, feet apart, knees bent. The Wop, we’re going to just get the groove first. The Wop has an up groove, right? So we’re going to accent up. Accent up. Just bending my knees but the stronger motion’s up. Up, up, up, up.

Tricky thing is you’re arms are opposite. So you go down, arms come up. You go up, arms go down. Swing, like you’re swinging a baseball bat, kind of. And, and, and, and you get your head in the game. Boom, boom, boom, boom. You can move your feet. You can step. Step, step, step, step over, and back. Back, and over.

That’s the Wop. That’s the Wop with a partner you can slap hands. There you go with the Wop. Let’s try it with some music.

There you go. Wop it out. Wop it out.
