Learn how to dance like Michael Jackson to his song "Billie Jean" in this Howcast dance video featuring dancer Robert Taylor, Jr, part four of five.


All right, now we're going to do one of Michael Jackson's signature verse moves in "Billie Jean."

So, you're gonna shift. First of all let's get our weight shifting.

You have shift left, shift right, shift left, shift right. As you're moving to the left, my right leg is going to come in. So, you're gonna flick it in. See how I move it in. Weight to center. Now moving to my right, my left comes up. Move to the left, right comes up. Move to the right, the left comes up.

Now, you break this down slow. As it shifts, both feet are going to turn in, but you want to make sure that the weight is solely on one leg. As I start one, I start the other.

So, you have this.

You can do whatever you want with the arm.

Swing it.

Bring it forward, bring it out.

That's one.

Now, you have the Camel Walk. This one we know. So, basically you're step-touching. So, you're going to go, one, and two, and three. From this angle, you're going to go, left, right, touch right, left.

So in actuality, you have this: And a one, and a two, and a three, and a four. With my arms, one and a two, and a three, and a four. In the 90s he turns it with his hand.


Camel Walk with the heels this time.

One and a two and a three and a four. Heels. Heel, heel. He had an upper body groove, too. So, I'm going on one, and a two and a three. Then I clap, then I clap.

And now, the Flick Kick. As he does in most of his kicks, he has three different kicks, this is one of them. The flick starts outwards first. You're gonna step, go outwards. And then bring it in.

So, you're going to prep, come out and then in.

So, you have in fast motion, bang.
