How to Dance like Justin Bieber

Learn how to dance like Justin Bieber from choreographer Matt Steffanina in this Howcast dance video.


What's up? My name is Matt Steffanina and today I'm going to teach you guys how to dance like Justin Bieber.

Today I'm going to teach you some of the choreography from Justin's video, Somebody to Love.

You're gonna start by kicking with your right leg and hopping on your left foot. Then you're gonna switch your feet and kick with the left to bring this left foot behind. When you do this last step, make sure you hop on your right foot again, so that it looks like this.

From here we're gonna repeat the same thing to the other side. Hopping on the right, kicking with the left. Switching. Hopping again on the left and kicking behind. Let's try just that first four counts.

This goes one and two, three and four. From here you're gonna kick your right leg to the front, five. You're gonna switch to the left, and this time, when your right leg comes behind you're gonna tap your heel with your left hand on six.

From here we're gonna bring our hands into fists. Step right, left. And look to the side on eight. From here I'm gonna turn my head to the front on one. Turn my shoulders and my body to the front on two. To do this, I'm using my head to start a chain reaction that opens up my shoulders.

Once your shoulders open, you wanna make sure that you step left, right, and stay on your toes, rather than stepping down flat on your heels. You wanna be really light and almost think up, down, to get a really smooth transition.

From here you're gonna walk your feet out. Toe, heel, toe. On that last step you wanna sit nice and low. So this is three and four. From here you're gonna jump up, cross your arms on five. Put your arms down on six. Then you're gonna step out with your right leg and push out with your hands. Rock again and push out and down with your hands.

Let's try that from the top, slowly. Five, six, seven, eight. Kick one and two. Three and four. Kick and twist. Pull eight. Look one, two. Toe, heel, toe. Jump up. Push down. Groove, groove.

Let's try it a little faster and put it to some music. Five, six, seven, eight.
