How to Do Body Rolls While Dancing to Hip-Hop

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


Alright. So this next one is both for the ladies and the fellas because
everybody can do this. We're going to do body rolls.

So we're going to take it from the side, and we're going to tilt a little
bit. You can do that at home, too. So we're going to tilt. We're going to
lean to the right. We're going to start from our heads. Okay? So you're going to
poke your head up, bring it back. As you bring your head back, your chest
is going to come up. Okay? So just think drinking water and the water is
slowly going down. Okay? So you have one, two, lean this back, let your hips go
forward. It'll be uncomfortable, but that's okay. Sit down, boom.

You can also roll back up which is just the reverse, forward, forward,
forward. Okay. Think throwing up on that one, but don't ask me to do it. So
you have one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Okay.

Now, the way we're going to do them we're just going to go down. It
simplifies it a little bit, and this is why. We go one, two, three, just
sit. Now, you don't necessarily have to push back or anything to prepare
for coming back up. You're just going to sit, boom, so that you can stand
up and go back into it again, boom. One, two, one, two, we're going to try
it on the other side, boom. One, two, one, two, one, two, a little bit more
difficult is going flat, right? To the middle, so one, two, one, two.

This one I recommend keeping it strictly torso, so you don't even need to
use your head. I kind of take my shoulders to start my chest rolling
forward, and then I sit to do it again and again and again and again.
Alright. Let's try this. This is nice and smooth, so we can go right into
music with this one.

And there are your body rolls.
