How to Dance Using Your Hips

Learn how to dance using your hips with this dance video from Howcast.


Ava: Hi, everybody. How are you doing? I'm Ava. This is Loretta. We are the Double Time Twins, and right now we are going to teach you how to dance with your hips. We're going to show you two moves. Swivel hips right and left, and a circle. Yes? Okay.

The first one, right/left basically. You're just going to stand with your feet shoulder width apart, and you're going to do a slight bend in the knee. Okay. Make sure you stand up here, so it's not like you're like this. Okay. You're up here, right? And your hips just go side to side.

Loretta: And you have to shut up, too?

Ava: Yeah. Well, right, left, right, left, right, left, right, left. And you can bring it down, and you can bring it back up. You can use your hands. As long as you keep this basic movement going, anything you feel comfortable doing, you're good.

Loretta: Awesome.

Ava: And one more thing you can do with your hips, is you can circle either to the right or to the left, whichever you prefer. I actually do things to the right, Loretta goes to the left.

Loretta: So, let's both go this way?

Ava: Okay. Again, with the hips side to side, we're going to bend slightly in the knee, hunch over a little bit, and we're going to circle to the right.

Loretta: Go one, two, three, four, five, six, seven.

Ava: Again, you can bring it down, and then you can bring it back up. And make it fun. And make it your own. You can also just circle to the right. Boom, boom, boom. Or you can just go to the left. Boom, boom, boom, boom. You don't have to snap every time you do it. We just tend to do that.

Okay. A couple things you can do with your hips. Go right, left, right, left. You can circle, and circle. Five, six, seven, eight.

Awesome. And that's how you dance with your hips.
