How to Do the Skip to My Lou Reggae Dance

Learn how to Skip to My Lou, a reggae dance, from professional dancer Charlene "Chi-Chi" Smith in this Howcast dance video.


Skip, skip, skip to my Lou. Skip, skip, skip to my Lou. Alright, so we are going to keep up with the reggae theme, this is another reggae dance, Skip to My Lou. Tech and I are going to show it together. We're going to start with the feet. You are hopping but it is a little hard to hop in slow motion so we will demonstrate it as slow as we can. So, left foot, you're going to hop on to your left foot. One, tap the right and hop over to the right foot. Two, tap and, try it again. Three, tap and four, tap and again, five, and, six, and, seven, and, eight, and.

Now, we are partially doing the arms already, even though we said we will only do the feet, it is just really hard to move without your arms, which is why we walk using arms and feet, right? Pedestrian move, so we have opposite arms; it is kind of led more by your shoulders so let us actually try it with just the upper body; boom. Swim. We have Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt, if they were to have a dance together this would be it, okay? You want to swim up here to the islands, right? Let's try it adding the feet.

Seven, eight; one, and, two, and, three, and, four, and, five, and, six, and try it single, single, double, single. Single, double this side, single, single, double that side. Again, single, single, double that side. Skip, skip, skip to my Lou. Let us try it with music DJ. Rewind selector.

Ready? A little faster.

Skip, skip, skip to my Lou. Skip, skip.

There we go.
