Learn How to Twerk

Learn how to twerk from professional dance instructors Victor Sho and LaShonna Halloway in this Howcast dance video.


Hi everyone. I'm LaShonna, and I'm going to bring you this crazy new dance, called the twerk, that everyone's doing. Babies are doing it. The elderly are doing it. Everyone's twerking. You should be twerking, too. So, how do you twerk?

Well, twerking requires moving your lower body, and it's primarily your backside going up and down, up and down, up and down. What makes twerking interesting is that you have to change the dynamics of the rhythms, and the timing.

So you're going up down, up down, up down. You can go a little faster. Up down, up down, up down, up down. And go slow, up down, up down, up down. Drop it all the way low, up down, up down. Once again change the dynamics. Faster.

All of it is just the motion of you going up, down. Now to get really fancy with the twerking, you can add your arms. They can roll out. They can throw in the air, or you're just going up down, up down.

That's the basics of twerking. It's very easy. You're having the best time ever just moving your backside up down, up down, up down. Add the arms. Change the rhythm. Drop it low, and twerk it, low. Change the rhythm.

There you go. That's how you twerk.
