What up, y'all? My name is Tweet Boogie. I represent the South Bronx. Had my first hip hop crew at 14. Done some work with Jay-Z, Mary J Blige, Destiny's Child. Traveled all over the world. I teach the hip hop culture, and right now I'm ready to teach y'all some dances for the club. Let's get it started. I know many of you are loving the miss, the wonderful, Shakira. So right now, I'm going to show you how to dance like Shakira. The most famous action that she has is going on with all of this area right In here. It's her hip action. So, what you need to do is stand to the side. Good. So we're going to use this right hip. I've only got one right hip, so I'm going to use this one. So I'm going to bend my knees. Good. We're going to have feet planted together. Good. Have your arms in front of you. Good. Then, you want to take your hips, and you want to swing it to the right. Boom. So the accent is always to one side. Not left-right, so it's not left-right, left-right. Don't do that one. What you want to do is just keep it to one area. Bend your knees, arms in front of you. Get good fists in front of you, and you want to lift your hips to the right. Boom. They want to lift up, not just outward, but up. Boom. And to up. And to up. And to up. So, we're going to try that again. Knees bent, arms in front, and hip to the right. Hip, hip, so my hips don't lie. So, now, I'm going to show you how to travel in a circle. So your knees are bent. You have your arms together. Fists are together, in front of you, and your hips are going to come to the right. As they come to the right, you're going to hit up. Boom. Good. And then, you're going to bring your hips down. As they come up again, you're going to take a step. Step. Bring the knee up, and press down. Boom. And then you twist the hips. Try it again. So, you have knees bent, bring up that foot, and press down. So it's just a little stomp so you can travel around. So, you have stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp. My hips don't lie, but DJ, I'm going to need you to drop the beat, so we can all do it. So, not exactly the tempo or the type of music that you would use at home. I know Shakira uses a lot of Latin music, but this is what we're going to deal with for today. So, 5, 6, 5, 6, 7, 8. 1, 2, 3, 4. So try it again. 6 and 7, 8, and 1, 2, 3, 4. Good. Now let's try it a little bit faster. 5, 6, 7 and 8. 1, 2, 3, 4. Good. Let's try it one more time. 5, 6, 5, 6, 7, 8, 1, 2, 3, 4. Now, ladies, you can go out, and show them how your hips don't lie.
