How To Dance Like Ciara
Jenny, a hip hop dancer, takes new dancers through a 16-count lesson from Ciara's famous 1, 2 Step music video! Learn how the pros do it step by step with a fully comprehensive video guide.
In this video, I'm going to show you how to dance like Ciara in her 1, 2 Step video. Now, there is a signature move in this video which is the 1, 2 step, which we'll get to in the end, but I'm going to show you 16 counts from her actual music video. So, start with your feet together.
Step number one, scoop your right hand across your body as if you're pushing something away and slide to the left. Do the same for step two on the right but turn to the right at the end. So you're not facing the front anymore.
Step three, take your hands up, click down, lift in your left leg and bend in over it slightly. And step four, put the left foot down, step behind with the right and push the walls to the side. So if we repeat steps one to four, you've got step one, step two, turn it to the right, step three, snap, step four, put it down, step across.
Okay, so after step four, move on to step five, snapping like we did in three. So, right foot and then left foot, that's step five. Step six, you're doing a ball change which is left, right, your hands are coming up at the same time you're untwisting to the left doing one and a quarter turns, drop down to the left hand side.
So if you look at the feet, you're crossing, you're turning, so you're untwisting your feet, r-ecrossing your feet and then taking an extra step to drop, and that's step six. Step seven, we're jumping up and then twisting to the front. So, steps one to seven we go, step one, step two, step three, step four, clicking step five, step six, step and turn, drop to the left, step seven, jump, twist.
Now, step eight, you start with your hands on your chest and you push them around in a circle twice, you're circling to the right, so clockwise and your knees are bouncing in and you're leaning side to side. So every time you push your knees in, you're taking one step and we're going to be doing this step turning to the side. So, at the same time, you start here and so your knees are out, then come in, in, in, and finish, step it in.
So there are three bounces and a step. So you lean away and in, and in and, and that's step eight. Then we get to the 1, 2 step.
The 1, 2 step, you're doing a really big dig on one side so you're lifting your leg up, dig, then there's a pause, she actually says 1, 2 step, you step in behind with your left slide with your right and then lean across with your left. So you're turning your body around on those last three. So, it's a dig, let me see you and then, there she says 1, 2 step, left, right, left.
And then to repeat on the other side, you use the same foot, left, so that's a dig, let me see you one, two, step. Okay, so to put that all together. And that's how to dance like Ciara in her 1, 2 Step video. .
