How to Do the SpongeBob Dance to Hip-Hop Music

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


[music] You guys have seen this dance all over YouTube, and I'm pretty sure you are going to recognize it once you try it. We're going to do the SpongeBob. Don't ask me why it's called that. I don't remember.

SpongeBob has a couple of different ways, variations to do it. None of them necessarily wrong, just different. I do mine accenting in, and I start with the leg kicking out.

So, right leg, your left, my right. Whatever. One, two. These are the feet, because SpongeBob is mostly all feet. Again, kick out, same foot, in. Six, seven, eight. Kick out, in. When I kick out, I kick a little bit to an angle. Not necessarily side or front, but angling. You'll see why in a second. Out, in.

Now when you bring your foot in, you're going to hop on your left foot. One, two. Let's try it on the other side. Left, in. Left, in. Let's try it with the hop on the left side. One, two.

To switch to the next side, you're going to plant this foot. Just hop to the other leg. Boom. In, boom, in, boom, in. Keep your knees soft. You don't want to land on a straight leg. You'll feel crazy. You feel crazy, you look crazy.

It gets faster. Boom, dah, dah, dah, dah. As you get faster, you're going to hop every time. Hop, hop, hop. Five, six, seven, eight. One, two, three, four, five, six, it gets even faster. One, and two, and three, and four, and five, six, seven, eight.

Let's try it with music. [music]
