How To Do The Running Man
From 1983 to 1988, Dancin' Kim brought VideoJug audiences the coolest new dances to hit the '80s scene! Sadly, these tapes were thought lost, but we recently discovered a few videos of Dancin' Kim and her Totally Rad Dances. Check it out! These awesome dance videos have not been seen in 20 years! In this video, Dancin' Kim teaches us how to do the rad new dance, the Running Man!
Step 1: Right Knee Up!
To begin doing the Running Man, raise your right knee while standing on your left foot. Your right knee should be up to the level of your waist.
Now bring your right foot down, and slide your left foot back. Make sure you slide your left foot back at the same time that you're bringing your right foot to the floor.
Step 2: Left Knee Up!
Now raise your left knee to about waist height, swinging it forward from its back position.
Step 3: Slide And Chug!
Bring your left foot down while sliding your right foot back. The right foot should slide back in a lunge-type movement. The Running Man gets much easier once you get going and can do it faster, so don't be discouraged in the beginning.
Step 4: Add A Hop!
Now give it a little style! Add a hop each time you bring your foot down. Repeat the basic movement of hop-lunge, hop-lunge. Put some shoulders into it, and bring it up to tempo with the beat.
Step 5: Swing Arms!
Bring your arms down with each hop of the Running Man. Now get into it and take it to the max! Once you've got the basic moves down, add some bigger arms for some funky fresh style! Now you're doing the Running Man! Be sure to do the Running Man the next time you're at a party or a cool club. You'll be the hit of the dance floor!
