It was Ashley’s idea to use the well known song for our YouTube choreography video and I was ecstatic! Of course, we had to think about our outfits and any props that we can use for the video. I looked through different photos from the 80’s and the 90’s and they sure love their bright colors. We decided on light purple for the backup dancers to make it a little subtle. We added overalls and a plaid shirt around the waist. Totally 90’s. Ashley topped it off with her metallic silver kicks and it was dope.
Old School Dance Moves
The Running Man
One of Ashley’s favorite move is the Running Man. It all started in the 80’s and made popular by Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation music video. It’s a super fun dance to do and it’s really good cardio.
Snake or Body Roll
Another fun move we did was the Snake or the Body Roll. It’s exactly how it sounds, you roll your body up from your chest to your hips and you look like a fierce snake doing it. This move wakes up your core and can make you feel slightly sexy.
The Humpty Dance
One of my personal favorite move is the Humpty Dance. This was made popular by the Digital Underground and their song with the same title. If you do this dance a few times in a row, you’ll work your legs and your hips and you’ll never want to stop.
On Set With Old School Hip Hop
We had so much fun filming this video and we hope you have as much fun learning this choreography too. It’s really easy and it’s something you can do by yourself or with friends and loved ones. Share it with your peeps and have an Old School dance party courtesy of Ashley and Hip Shake Fitness!
