How to Do the Robocop Hip-Hop Dance

Learn how to do the Robocop from professional dancer Charlene "Chi-Chi" Smith in this Howcast dance video.


So some of you might remember the movie RoboCop. Well if you do, if you don't, this dance was named after him. So RoboCop is mostly upper body, but it gets a little flavorful down here, too.

So we'll start with the arms first. So you want to make a nice box with your arms. Let's start them here. Bend your knees. Now, just the arms. You're going to tilt a little, and you're going to straighten. Tilt, straighten, tilt, straighten, tilt, straighten.

That's the essence of the move. Okay? There's other things involved. So you are soft knees. You're going to go one. When you straighten, you're going to bring your arms and your shoulder both up. Two, three, same thing on the other side, four, five, six, seven, eight. Okay? So that's most of the upper body.

Now, let's try that again. Six, seven, eight, and one, and two, and three, and four. You can double it up. Single, single, double up, single, single, double up. Okay? You always want to make sure you return to this box.

Now, if you want to add some sauce you can go, same level up. Boom, boom, down, you can move feet and go with it. Boom, boom, boom, boom. You want the feet? You just go it. Right, left, right left, right. Keep the knees bent. Left, right, left. Okay? That's if you want to add the feet.

Right now, we should go, and, one and two, double up this side, three, double up that side.

Let's try it with music.
