How to Do the Reject Dance Move

Learn how to do the reject hip-hop dance move 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 the Reject.

We're going to start by turning sideways. We're going to start by picking our back foot up. From here I'm going to jump the leg that I'm standing on foward. Then I'm going to fall back onto this foot, bringing my other knee up.

This cycle just repeats over and over. Taking the back leg, hopping forward. Taking the knee that's up and falling back. Hopping forward and falling back. Hopping forward and falling back. It's important to remember to keep your hop forward the same size as your step back. If you want to travel this step you can change the size of your hops and your steps so that you can travel to the front or the back. But in general we want to stay in place while doing the Reject.

Let's try this a little bit faster and put it to some music. So first we're just going to do it half-time, nice and slow starting with this back knee up. You're going to go front, back, front, back, front, back, front, back. When you're ready to speed this up you're going to keep the steps exactly the same, we're just going to double time and this is how you do the Reject.

From here you can turn it to the front, you can travel it back, and don't forget to use your arms. Even if you're just letting them swing you still want your arms to be involved in the dance. Five, six, seven, eight.

And that's how you do the Reject.
