Step-by-step Instructions for Beginners
Do not immediately start the steps; get into the groove first, feel the music, loosen your body, and then begin.
Step 1: Jump Forward
Jump forward (one-step distance) in such a way that both your feet touch the ground simultaneously. This is the first step of the four-count step.
Step 2: Wobble your hips
As soon as you jump, start swaying your hips from right to left. This is called wobbling your hips. Don’t forget to cross your arms to the beat. Wobble your hips for four counts.
Step 3: Jump back
Jump back to your original position to start the four-count step again.
Step 4: Wobble them again!
Now repeat the wobble again. Sway your hips from side to side, and move your hands as well.
Step 5: Twist to the right
Now it’s time to wobble your entire body. Twist to the right in such a way that you are facing left. Now sway your shoulders and hips alternatively for a four-count step.
Step 6: Twist to the left
Twist to the left, and repeat the wobble of the shoulders and hips. You can do the hand roll at chest level or cross them as well according to the beat.
Step 7: Wobble and wobble more!
Enjoy the dance by wobbling your body like a waving flag. When your shoulders are in front, your hips should be at the back and vice versa. You can try a variety of movements with your hands.
Step 8: Do the step
Now, it’s time to “do the step.” It’s a four-count step, and your hands should sway as well. Take a step with your right leg, and then bring the left leg in front as well. Take a step with your right leg again returning to the original position followed by your left leg.
Step 9: Step forward and do the cha-cha
You can also go forward normally and come back by doing the cha-cha step. Step your right leg in front, followed by the left. Now, do the cha-cha; that is step back with your right foot, left foot, and right foot again. But this should be quicker with more swaying of the hips.
Step 10: Cha-cha step
Now do the cha-cha step in your place. Take a forward step with your right leg, followed by a backward step with the left one. Quickly step in place with your right foot, left foot, and right foot again.
Step 11: Swing to the right
Now start swaying your body from side-to-side and cross your arms to the beat. Continue wobbling your shoulders and hips alternatively.
Step 12: Swing to the left
Gradually turn your body to the left and continue the wobble. Turn very slowly and naturally, continuously swaying your body.
Now, you will be facing left. Repeat all the above steps, complete the entire circle, or continue this pattern till the song ends. The above steps are the basics; you can combine them or try out different variations as well.
Dance is about losing all your inhibitions and having fun, so just relax and let yourself loose. Don’t get too mechanical with the steps; feel the music and do the wobble!
