Let Me Teach You How To "Twerk"

  • Print

 "Twerk" is now an official word. Probably in part thanks to Miley Cyrus' performance on the MTV VMA. Oxford Dictionaries online added to it to our vocabulary.  

So, what exactly is "twerking?"  Twerking is a dance move that involves squatting slightly and shaking your hips in an up-and-down bouncing motion, causing the "twerker" to shake, "wobble" and "jiggle."  Not everyone can....or should...."twerk."  

While I just found out about "twerking" recently when a rash of YouTube videos started going viral, the dance can be traced back to a song released in 2000 called "Whistle While You Twurk" by the Atlanta based Ying Yang Twins.  Apparently, the spelling has since changed.

If you want to learn how to "twerk" here's a video that might help.
