How to Do an Illusion Dance Knee Isolation

Learn how to do a knee isolation in illusion dance in this Howcast hip-hop dance video featuring choreographer Jarrieth Patterson.


This move you're about to learn is the knee illusion. Now, it's pretty basic, but it's up to you to make it seem like it's complicated. So, what you want to do is, you're going to start on your knee, of course. Now, it's somewhat like going into the knee spin, but this time it's more of an illusion. So the fingers going to play a part in this. It's like, you're here, and you're just going to wiggle the fingers. That's it. So, it's going to kind of make it like it's an illusion once you get into your groove.

So, I'm going to bring it back. It's the easiest thing. Just slide the knee. You're basically pushing off your left foot or whatever foot you're, whatever foot you're pushing off of, or whatever knee you're positioned on, from here, just a little into it. I'm on my right knee. I want to push off my left foot. So, see how my knee is in close? From there, what I'm going to do, I'm just going to slide. I'm going to push off my foot. It's going to be a quick push.

So you're going to bring it back. Like I said, play the fingers, and move the fingers around with this. Like that, all right? You get your body into it, go wherever you want. It's up to you to seem like it's a big move, but in reality it's a small move. Once again, same thing, wiggle the fingers, play around with it. Yo DJ, like always, hit the beat.
