All right, so we are here doing some more of those freestyle Billie Jean moves. You guys doing a good job so far, so keep up the good work. Here we go, patience is a virtue, especially with MJ. So you have this one, around the world, so you're going to push thing in. Pshew.

Make sure you're pretending that you're pushing air. And what creates the illusion? The more your shoulder goes to the direction that you're moving to, the more of that elastic illusion you will create. So you're going to push, and also start on the heels, you see what's happening here? Much different if you just go here, but if your heels shift up, you're good to go. So you want to push as if you're pushing against the wall here, and then shift over, pshew, nicely. Push. Pshew.

So now you have the shifting second position move, so you're going to prepare kick, up, down, left, right, grab and out. One up, down, left, right, out, hit, hit, hit, poom bow, one more time. So you're doing a kick, left, right, hit, in, out, up, down, left, right, out, ha. Now he checks his hat sometimes, checking the hat means hitting it, making sure it's down. So for example if I come here, bow, check, so that's what's happening, make sure, bow, he does that in a lot of his moves. So that's another one right there.
