Twerking is a type of dance that came out of the bounce music scene of New Orleans in the late 1980s. Twerking is rhythmic rotating, revolving and waving movements of the pelvis to make the booty shake. During your lessons, you will learn the twerking techniques. Each class includes a booty camp, which focuses on glute and leg activation. Plus isolation exercises to help tone and strengthen the hips, legs, glutes and back. You will also work on “core” twerk moves to develop twerk skill. You will then learn different twerk moves, shapes, holds and techniques that will be combined into a short sequence so that you and the whole class can shake your booty’s together.
Suggested Experience Needed:
No experience required. 5-8 weeks of Hip Hop recommended.
