Adina: Right now we're going to demonstrate how to do the thunder clap. Damion right now, he's going to show you how to do the thunder clap. With the thunder clap I'm like the bogol [SP?] where you're rotating your arms in a circular motion. You're going to clap, straight, straight, so you're moving your right arm back and forth, right and left. Back and forth. There you go.

Damion: It's a new clap. It is the preference if you're not actually clapping.

Adina: We have to add sound to it. We have to add that special effect to it. When you doing the thunder clap, make sure you clap. You lean back with it.

Damion: Basically, the thunder clap is anything that's happening around you that's around that you're not a part of. I mean the thunder clap is described lightning and those type of situations. Alright? Thunder clap.

Adina: That dance is called the thunder clap.

Damion: Clap, clap, clap.
