Transcript

Victor Sho: Hi, my name is Victor Sho.

LaShonna Halloway: And I'm LaShonna.

Victor: And we are going to show you some simple moves for dancing to house music. And with house, you just want to understand that there is a groove with it, and it's a bounce. Okay? And this bounce is like up and down. Up, yeah?

LaShonna: Yeah.

Victor: And then with this bounce, you can do simple movements with your feet, that will, you know, be house steps. So basically we have the cross. Step, step, cross, step, step. So you're going to cross with your right leg over, and place over your left. Then step back with your right, to cross over with your left, to place over your right and then step back with your left. And then you want to go one, two, and three, four, and five, six, and seven, eight, and one. Okay? But now the challenge here is to do it with the bounce. Cool? So you want to go one, two, and three, four, and five, six, and seven, eight, and one.

And then we have two more dances.

LaShonna: Alright. This second step that we're going to learn is just a little heel step together. So you're going to keep that same bounce, which is called the jinga. That same jinga, jinga, jinga. You have heel together, heel together, heel together, heel together. Without that little groove, it just looks like this. So you want to add that house groove, that up down motion. Up down, up down. Like you're riding a horse. Awesome. We have one more step that we're going to incorporate into our house dance.

Victor: This next step is simple. You're going to hop on your left leg, and lift up your right leg, and lift up your left arm. And then you place your right leg down. Hop on your right leg. Lift your left leg up. Place that down. And then you're going to do it twice, hopping on your left leg, and placing your right leg in between each hop. So you hop, boom, boom, and we're going to repeat that. So you're going to go single, single, double, double. Single, single, double, double. Alright? And you still want to keep that same like jinga, as LaShonna said. Yeah? That same up and down movement, and you want to go one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight.

LaShonna: Let's put all three moves together.

Victor: Yeah.

LaShonna: And then we'll be doing some house dancing. Ready? Let's start with the step that Victor showed us. We're going to go one, two, three. Then the heel step that I showed you. One, two, three, four. Now the hop step that Victor showed you. Single, single, double. Single, single, double. Awesome.

And that's how you dance to house music.

Victor: There it is.
