How to Do the Scarecrow Hip-Hop Move

Learn how to do the hip-hop dance move called the scarecrow in this street dance video from Howcast.


What's up, y'all? This is your boy Jino Fort, yet again, coming at you with some new dance moves. I'm going to show you how to do the scarecrow. The scarecrow is very loose, as well. It's not like you're puppeting exactly, but it's close to it. Well, for some people it's not. It's whatever you think. But it's very loose as well and it's very loose leg-wise, as well too. The scarecrow in general is a peculiar technique in a way, because you're really like a scarecrow. Like you're literally in a scarecrow position. You're stuck like this. So we have different versions.

It could be you're just hanging off to the side. It's mostly used in popping. So when you do it it's like a rotation of your arms and legs, but it's going inward. So we're going to try to go inward. Make sure the movement looks like so. One-two, you can take and go, three and four. The scarecrow is very unique, because not a lot of people use it, but it's very awkward and odd. But it's really cool at the same time, to me anyways. So I'm going to show you a quick routine with the scarecrow.

Your first movement is going to be - you're going to bring your arms - as well as your legs in at the same time. So separately it's going to look like, one-two, you're bringing them in. So try to do that at the same time. Five, six, seven, eight and one-two. That's two counts; on your third count you bring your right arm up, three-elevate, go down. Four and five, left over right. So let's try it again, five, six, seven, eight; one-two, three-four and five. Let's try it again. Five, six, seven, eight; one-two, three-four and five.
