How to Do the Heel Toe Hip-Hop Dance Move for Kids

Learn how to do the heel toe in this Howcast hip-hop dance video for kids with Jeff Cowans.


What's up. This time around we're going to show you how to do the Heel Toe. This dance just basically goes by the name. It's called the Heel Toe so you know you're going to use a heel and a toe. Right? So we're going to start out taking our right foot and put that on the heel. The left foot, you can see over here, is going to be on the toe so I'm up like this. There you go, Heel Toe, that's the dance. No, there's more to it. So what you're going to do is; you're on your heel here and you're on your toe here, you're going to turn it to the side. Got it?

So we started out facing the left side, which is your right, and then we turned to our right, which is your left. So we're going to take your right foot and put it on the heel. The left foot should be on the toe then turn to the right side. Then what you're going to do is jump it. So you're going to keep the same heel toe but now with the opposite feet. So now your left foot which is in the back is going to be on the heel and the right foot is going to be on the toe. So jump and switch it. There you go.

Now, all you have to do is turn your body to the left side. Jump and switch it. Turn it to the right side. So basically what you have to remember is you have to always stay on your heel and your toe. Got it? Because then it's not the Heel Toe. Heel and toe the whole time right? So I'm going to take my right foot and I'm going to put it in the front on the heel. Pick up the back foot, which is the left one and that should be on the toe. Now turn. After you turn you always jump. So you're going to jump now. You switched it. You have one heel and one toe again. Then you're going to turn. Next thing you do is you jump it again. So much easier once you're bending your knees and you're down lower. It works out so much better. Got it? All right.

So let's try this nice and slow. We're going to take our right foot and put it to the left side. And the right foot is on the heel. Left foot is on the toe. Then we turn. Jump. Switch. Turn. Jump. Switch. Turn. Jump. Switch. Turn. Jump. Switch. Turn. Got it? That's your Heel Toe slow. Now what if you want to do it fast? You should do it fast. This is what it looks like. We're going to start on this side. So, five, six, seven, eight, you go turn. Jump. Turn. Turn. Turn. Turn. Turn. Turn. Turn. That's your Heel Toe. Notice I'm bending my knees. We want to be down low to make this work our best. He just twists to the other side. Got it? Yes? Jump. Turn. Turn. Turn. Heel Toe. That's how you do it.
