Twerking is a great way to dance to your favorite song or workout and have fun simultaneously. Once you learn the basic moves, twerking is easy.
Doing the Squat and Shake Twerk
Get into a squat position. You want to be low to the ground so that you are grounded and easily balanced, but not too low. Consider keeping your knees behind your toes to avoid knee injury. Stand with your legs wide apart, lower to the ground, with your feet turned out. This will help you maintain your balance once you start moving. This is the most common way to twerk, and is the least sexually provocative.Pick a fun, fast beat and start practicing! You can practice twerking slowly at first, to get the basic move down, and pick up your pace once you're comfortable with it.
Pop your booty outward. Get into the stance that looks like you are about to sit into a chair-- think "chair pose" in yoga -- your booty should be the main attraction. Make sure to keep your knees bent and place your hands on your hips. Keep your upper body pretty straight and look straight ahead. You don't need to look at the ground to twerk effectively. As you pop your booty out, you should lean forward approximately 45 degrees, shifting your weight to your toes. This is known as the "Miley Twerk". If you want to be a bit less scandalous, then you don't have to lean forward as much, and can keep your chest upright.
Shake your booty back and forth. If you choose to keep your hands on your hips while you twerk, then you should press your thumbs into your butt bones to help push your hips go forward if you're moving forward; to move your booty back, use your other fingers to pull back on your hip bones to help your booty move backward. If you're comfortable twerking without your hands, then you can lift your arms straight out in front of you, close together and parallel to the ground, and gently sway them as you continue to twerk.
