How to Do the Leo Walks Hip-Hop Dance

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


Alright. So. As you can see from our beginning pose, we're going into something slightly different. We are continuing with the different grooves of hip hop. This one is drop. We're going to show you something that's often done in locking called Leo Walks.

Soft knees, always. You're going to lift up your right leg like you want to step over something big. And step down and then scoop. Same thing on the other side. Up, down, scoop. Up, down, scoop. Up, down, scoop. Up, down, scoop. Up, down, scoop. Yes.

So now, up down scoop aren't necessarily all of the grooves. Up is just the leg. Down is just the leg. Okay? So so far really you groove up, and then the drop comes in, the surprise, because you don't suspect it. Okay? Sp that's really what makes a drop groove a drop groove.

So we have five, six, seven, eight. One and two, three and four, five and six, seven and eight. And Tec's arms are natural. Boom. Like he's walking or like he's running. Okay?

Let's try it with music.

There you go. Leo Walks.
