How to Do the 6-Step Hip-Hop Dance Move for Kids

Learn how to do the 6-step in this Howcast hip-hop dance video for kids with Jeff Cowans.

What’s up? This is Jeff Cowans. I’m going to show you guys how to do a six step. We’re going to start it standing up and count to six throughout this. It’s not that hard. You’ve just got to keep up with the numbers, and it’ll work out for you.

All right. So we’re going to take the right foot and make like a circle. You swing it around, and you go like this, one. There you go. And I’m going to step back to the corner with my left foot, and there’s your two right there. And I go the other direction, three. One, two, three. You got that part. Yeah. So now I’m going to take my left and go diagonal, and there I have four. Bring this one behind, five, and then I’m going to jump. And I’m going to take my right foot, which is now in the back, and bring it up in the front, and I’m going to have six. Six.

Throughout the whole thing, I hope you’re noticing that it’s right, left, right, left, right, switch. Got it? Just like walking on a street, right, left, right, left. So you’re never going to do the same foot at the same time, and it’ll work out for you. Let’s try it again. Swing the right leg around. You’re going to go one, corner, two, corner, three, four, five, six. Repeat. One, two, three, four, five, switch it, six. There’s your six step.

We’re going to take it down to the floor, because you do a six step down here anyway, and my heels are off the floor, so I’m like this, right? So you’re in the position. You’re going to take your right leg, stretch it out, knee straight, and bring it all the way around to the front. There’s your one. That’s the circle I was talking about. Now I’m going to step to the back corner with my left foot, and that’s going to be my two. So I go two. I take the other leg, and I go three. Now, I take my left, and I bring it diagonally across, and I’ve got four. See that. Now I take my right foot, five.

From here, the jump switch that you did earlier is going to happen on the floor. It might feel a little bit weird to you, but I’m going to do it now without using the hands so you can just see what it looks like. Basically it’s like this. Now, going back to where I was, I had my hands on this side, so I’m going to jump and bring my hands to the other side. It looks like this. There you go. Got it? Now step to the corner. Step to the corner again. Step diagonal. Bring it in. Then I do that jump. There you go.

All right. We’re going to try it from the beginning, one more time, nice and slow. So we bring it around, five, six, seven, eight. Let’s do it. One, two, three, four, five, six. Again. One, corner, corner, four, five, six. There you go. We’re going to speed it up for you right now. You ready? Got it? Let’s do it again. Here you go, six step. Six step, give it a try.
