What's up? My name is Matt Steffanina, and today I'm going to teach you guys how to dance like Lil' Wayne. Now, Lil' Wayne doesn't really do a whole lot of dancing. He more so rocks. So I'm going to teach you the rock that Lil' Wayne does when he's rapping, and when he's on stage.
I'm going to turn sideways so that you can learn it a little bit easier. You want to think of contracting from your stomach, and bending forward. At the same time, you're also going to bend your knees.
Now, when he does this, it's not a very big movement, so you don't have to make it really exaggerated. You just want to have this bounce.
The last piece to this is our head. You want to make sure that your chin and your head are hitting forward on the beat at the same time as your chest. Now, this feels a little bit strange, when you're just practicing it like this, almost like a pigeon, but it's really important to get this groove, so that when you put it all together, your groove doesn't look stiff, but rather has a nice bounce to it, which comes from the head.
We're going to practice this nice and slow. While you're doing the rock, I want you to let your arms just be free. You can push them out to the side, cross and uncross, push to the front. The key is to get this rock going, and to make it feel comfortable.
You're going to start by rocking right and left, eight times, just like that.
This is one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. After you finish these eight bounces, you're going to step forward twice. You're going to go right, left, right, left. As you do this, your right shoulder is going to go down, and down. And down, and down. So with each step, my right shoulder is dropping.
So this with the counts, is one, two, three, four. From here, I'm going to step out on my right leg, and we're going to bounce to the right four times. Again, the arms are up to you, so have fun with the arms.
Let's put it together from the top. So we have five, six, seven, eight. You bounce right, left, right, left, right, left, seven, eight, walk forward, two, three, four, take it out, out, out, out. And that's how you dance like Lil' Wayne.
