What up y'all my name is Tweet Boogie, I represent the South Frogs. I had my first hip hop crew at 14. Done some work with Jay Z, Mary J. Blige, Destiny's Child. Travelled all over the world because I teach hip hop culture and right now I'm ready to teach you dances for the club, let's get it started. OK, so this is finding the beat head nod. I'm going to turn to the side so you can see; it's not like this, straight forward, it's kind of at an angle, good. Kind of going down. So you have forward, forward, forward, forward; but at the same time you want to bend your knees. Forward, forward, forward, forward. forward, forward, forward, forward. Now, you also have a head nod the goes to the back. So, back, back, back, back. But you don't want to stand there and look like this. Good, so you have to use your knees. So, when you use your knees, the other one, your knees are bending. But for when your head nod is back, you have to straighten your knees. So you have back, and back, and back, and back. You see how my knees are straightening when my head goes back. Good, and back, and back, and back, and back. But that's slow, so I'm going to show you mid tempo, then I'm going to show you fast; soon as my DJ drops it. Five, six, seven, eight. So, we're going to go forward slow, five, six, seven, eight and bend, bend your knees, bend, bend your knees, bend. See how my head goes forward at an angle, boom, boom, boom. Same time I'm bending my knees when it goes forward. So now I'm going to do it fast, and boom, and boom, and forward, and forward. Good, but now I've got to do it back. So, back, back, mid tempo. Back, and back. Make sure you're straighten the knees when the neck goes back. Back, so five, six, seven, eight, boom, and boom, and back. Five, six, seven, eight. Back, good. Back, back, and back, back, back, back. So, that's your basic head nod going forward and going back.
