How to Do a Side Rise Illusion Dance Move

Learn how to do a side rise move in illusion dance in this Howcast hip-hop dance video featuring choreographer Jarrieth Patterson.


All right, so the next move you're going to learn is the side rise, not the rise up, but the side rise, all right? So it's another illusion move, and it's not difficult, trust me, you see people sitting like this, that's how easy it is, all right? It's all about knowing your body once again.

So what we're going to do is, I'm going to set you off on the ground again, all right. And think about you sitting like this on a park, it's like normal, as you were just talking with one of your friends, okay. But like I said, whatever leg you feel comfortable on, you want to sit with the right leg in front, left leg back, left leg front, right leg back, it's whatever you want to do, all right?

So from here, you're just sitting normal. What you're going to do is you're going to roll your body up. So, the thing when you roll your body up, you're going to go from your thighs, your knees to your feet, all right? So I'm going to go from this angle. So here we are, so I'm low, I want to come up, let my body go. Then just want to come from there, that's all it is, just coming right off the side, simple, all right?

So once again I'm here, same thing, coming from the thighs to the knees to the feet, all right. But like I say, you kind of get a motion going, so you want to, see how I got that motion? I'm going to go back down in that motion. See that? So you're here, same thing, from the thighs, to the knees, to the feet, so you get the motion, motion, boom, that's all there is to it. Yo, drop the beat.
