Twerking

Twerking Workshops with Becky*

What is Twerking / Booty Dance?

Schoenheitstanz-1372web
Twerking is an old West African dance, similar to the “Mapouka Dance” from Cote D`Ivoire. Much like other Afro-Caribbean dances, this dance is an expression of resistance to male ideals for female sexuality. Originally, Twerking was danced to African music, but has sinced found increased popularity in genres like Bounce / Crunk, Hip Hop and Trap Music. The term “Twerking” was used for the first time in 1993, when this dance style entered the music and entertainment industry through the videos of Beyonce, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj.

 


In the workshops „Booty Dance / Twerk“ with Becky* we start by focussing on technique – so we don’t dive into choreographies at the beginning, but first deal with the correct execution and learning of the basic movements!
