How to Dance to Hip-Hop like You're Gliding

Learn how to dance like you're gliding from professional dancer Charlene "Chi-Chi" Smith in this Howcast dance video.


Hey everybody. Tom and I are back. We're going to show you how to glide which originated from tap dancers actually, Nicholas Brothers. You guys know them. If you don't you should.

So we're going to start off, very basic version. We're going to start off with our right foot. We're going to just take it to our toe. One. We're going to turn this knee out, and we're going to lean on this leg. And. And now, you're going to press your heel, your right heel into the floor sliding the left foot back. Two.

Let's try that again slowly. Six, seven, eight. One and two. Good. Seven, eight. One and two. Nice.

Now, if you wanted to keep going you can take your heel to do one and two, all over again. Let's try that again. One and two.

Let's move over so we don't lose Tom. We have a little bit faster. We'll just do two in a row. Six, seven, eight. One and two, one and two. Nice.

Let's try that with music.

Beginner gliding.
