Loretta: Hey everybody, what's up? My name's Loretta. This is my sister, Ava. We're the Double Time Twins. Today, we're going to teach you how to dance like Lady Gaga, in our favorite video that she does, "Just Dance." We're going to teach you two counts of eight and they're going to be simple and easy, and we're going to break them down for you.

The first kind of beat, we're going to just march like a soldier and your arms are going to come up like this; one, two, three, four, five. That's it, and it's going to be opposite arm, opposite leg. So if this arm is going to be up, then this leg is going to stop.

We're going to go five, six, seven, eight; one, two, three, four, five. Awesome, let's try it again. Five, six, seven, eight; one, two, three, four, five, six. Up like a soldier, up seven, and open eight, peek about. Captain, up, flap back, cover your eye and open. Good, again; captain, up, cover, open. Let's put it together from the march; five, six, seven, eight; one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight.

Loretta: Awesome. You got it?

Ava: Okay, let's try it one more time, and then we'll move on; five, six, seven, eight; one,
two, three, four, five and six, seven, eight, awesome. Next kind of beat, this arm's going to be up. Again, opposite arm, opposite leg, and this leg's going to come out, boom; awesome.

Loretta: It tilted and bent?

Ava: Yes, slight bend to the knee and opposite, opposite, and then we switch. Boom, and we switch again. Boom, and we switch again. Boom, so we do that four times. Let's try it; five, six, seven, eight; one, two, three, four. Awesome, again, five, six, seven, eight; one, two, three, four, five.

Good, so your hand goes on your chest and your head slides totally back. We go five and then this arm comes behind your head. Six, and then you just do the same thing,you switch it. Seven, and then you come forward, eight. Awesome, so we go five, six, seven, lean forward, eight. Let's try it again.
