Learn how to dip in zouk dance with this Latin dance video from Howcast.

Ashley: Hey it’s Henry and Ashley right now we’re going to show you a little move and zook that’s a little funky. It feels like head motion. Some people call it a dip. Some people call it a lift but we’re going to break it down and show you how to do it.

Henry: Yes, so here it goes. So we do a basic step, one, chick chick, five, chick chick, one, chick chick, and dum chick chick dum. Yes. So, let’s break it down for you. So guys all you’re going to do is basically it’s like the statue of liberty. Yes? All you’re going to do is when you bring the lady after your basic step. One, three, four, five, seven, and on the one you’re going to step in place and you’re going to bring this left arm up. The first thing of the motion basically is basically this, it’s like the statue of liberty. You don’t want to go down with them but you actually want to lift them. So let’s try that one more time. See it goes like this. The basic one, three, four, five, seven and one. Yes? From here what happens is the movements are going to continue with the ladies head as she continues to land.

Yes? So it’s just like she shows a vampire neck right there. And you don’t want to bite her because your going to get in trouble. From here you send her to the exit which you learned in the previous video. I’ll turn the lady, five, seven, and one. Yes? Let’s do it one more time. So, you go back on the one. One, three, four, five, seven and the count on one you lift the lady’s arm with your left hand. Ladies are going to continue to move and we’re going to in a second. And then you lead the lady back into the exit and turn the lady five, seven, and one. Good? Lets talk a lot of followers for the ladies, yeah?

Ashley: Now ladies you have to be really careful. So, you go through your basic. When you feel that your gentleman is going to lead you into this you have to be really careful that your listening to the language from his hand because if you just go and pull yourself you’re going to pull him over. It’s just a smooth, relax, lean back. Just think if you have long hair, great, let it go. Just whip your hair and smile and then come back. It’s not a crazy dip. Your not throwing your body away. Your not throwing your weight into him. Your controlling your own body weight.

Henry: Exactly like she said. So, even though we call it a dip, it’s more of like a lift. It’s just a head movement sharp accent. Yes? So never thing you’re going to go down in this one. So let’s show it one more time with the counts and then we are going to do it with music for you. Okay? So it goes one, chick, chick, five, chick, chick, one, three, four, five, seven and one, three, four, five, seven and one. Got to start with some music. Alright this hip hop, you always have to feel it right? There we are, a little bass. Chick, chick, one, chick, chick, two. Chick, chick, one, chick, chick, two and one, three, four, five, seven, and one, three, four, five, seven, and one. One more time. And one, three, four, five, seven and one, three, four, five, seven and then once your zook dip lift.

Ashley: Your funky head whip move. Use it.

Henry: Exactly.
