Loretta: Hey everybody, what's up? My name's Loretta. This is Ava and this is Anthony. Ava: Hi. Anthony: How's it going? Loretta: Right now, we're going to teach you three simple moves for beginners. If you're a beginner and you haven't really danced before... Ava: Which is totally okay. Loretta: Totally fine. The basic thing is just to have some confidence, even if you feel like you're doing something wrong, but you look like you're doing it right, you're going to do it right, okay? First thing we do, we show you three simple, easy moves. We can just do a step -- clap. Simple, easy; step -- clap, step -- clap, step -- clap, step -- clap. What's so great about this move is that we can make it bigger, bigger. Hey, hey, bring it up. We can bring it down, awesome. And you really just start it from here, step -- clap, step -- clap, step -- clap, step -- clap. So this is a simple move for beginners and you can really put your own groove and your own energy into it. Ava: Once you get more comfortable, because that's what dancing's all about, right? Anthony: So our second move, what we're going to do is we're going to step and drop the shoulder. It's going to go one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. This is just a simple, cool, calm, and collected dance move that will get everybody dancing with you. You can put your own spin on it, too. We can go one drop, two drop, three drop, four drop. Ava: Awesome. Awesome. Loretta: Okay, I'm going to show you one more. We're going to stand with our feet together. Our arms are going to come up, and we're going to circle, circle. And while we're doing that, we're going to turn with our right. So we're going to go one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Easy, and just like the step -- clap you can make it bigger, too. Let's turn; five, six, seven, eight; one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight; awesome. So those are three easy, simple dance moves for any beginner to do. Step -- clap, step -- clap, step -- clap, step -- clap, step -- drop, step -- drop, step -- drop, step -- drop, circle, circle, circle, circle; awesome.
