"What up y'all my name is Tweet Boogie, I represent the South Bronx, had my first hip-hop crew at fourteen and done some work with Jay-Z Mary J. Blige, Destiny's Child, travel all over the world 'cuz I teach hip-hop culture, and right now I'm ready to teach you some dances for the club. Let's get it started.

So i notice when I go to the club and people are trying to do the running man, but it always ends up looking like the shopping cart, which I know is a dance that many people know, but I'm here right now, today to show you how to properly do the running man. So, the right knee comes up, hop, and it places in front. Good. When this foot comes down the left leg slides back so let's try the other foot, the left leg. The left leg is going to come up, hop, hop on the right leg, hold your balance, don't fall over! SO the left leg is going to come down, the right leg is going to slide back, boom, and you have to hop. So let's try it again face forward. So knee up, hop, knee comes down, boom. Left leg comes up, hop on the right, left leg comes down. This you have to keep doing back to back, so you don't really pause in between each hop. So you have one hop, two hops, two hops, up, hop, up, hop. Now that's just the lower part of your body, that's the legs, I need to get the arms because some people do this, and it's not that. SO when the right leg comes out, the right knee comes up, that's when you arms come out, I'll show you from a side view. The arms come out. Good. Then they come back, they come back as if you were pulling this leg back. So let's do it again. Up back up back up back. Now I'm going to try it mid tempo so you can do it a little bit faster with me. Here we going, 6 and 7 and 6 and 8. Good! and that's how you do the Running Man."
