How to Dance like Ne-Yo

Learn how to dance like Ne-Yo from professional dance instructors Victor Sho and LaShonna Halloway in this Howcast video.


Hi, my name is Victor Show, and I'm going to teach you how to dance like Neo.

So Neo is another artist of mine that I think is one of the top. And in terms of dance, I've made a combo that's inspired by his movement, by his style.

Okay, so this kind of choreography is more like street jazz. Has a lot of lines, is a little housey, and it's just about precision and being clean with it.

All right, cool, so here we go. What you're going to do right now is, you're going to do a kick, ball, change. Kick, ball, change. That's your feet. Kick, step, put your other foot in the back, that's a kick ball change. Kick ball change. Your hands is going point and slap and you want to look it. So, point, snap, then you're going to do another kick, ball, change with your leg. Kick, ball, change.

So after you come from this snap right here, you're going to extend your hands, your right hand on your chest, go here, and snap. You're going to snap really low, so there's a little bit of a level change right there.

So once again, you've got one and two, three and four, from here, you're going to turn, five, six, to do a small little house step to the side, with your right bring it in to your left, and then you're going to take that same step, left and right towards the back. Left, right and your profile toward the audience. Cool? Let's take it back.

So we've got, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, one, two. Cool? Now you're going to do a few more house steps right here. You're going to kick with your right leg on your heel. Three, four, you're going to stop on five, you're still looking this way. So this is three, four, five. There's a quick stop on five to go snap six and you look towards the audience to go seven, eight.

Once again, so, you're going to go from your turn, this is five, six, seven, eight, back. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. That's what it is, all right?

Let's piece this together one more time, slowly. So we're going to go point one, snap two, and three, and four, five, six, skate, seven, eight, one, two, three and four, and five, six and seven, eight.

So now we're going to do this whole combo again slow, and then tempo with the beat, all right? Okay, here we go. So we got one, actually, when you point, you want to make sure you point towards the audience. So you're going to go one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight.

Okay? Hope you're ready, because now we're going to do it with the tempo. I'm going to count you in then it's up to you to keep up. Five, six, five, six, seven and. And that's how you dance like Neo.
