Twerk dance is one of those subjects that everyone has an opinion on. People either think it’s empowering or objectifying women, but it’s so much more than that. It’s a confidence booster and an amazing workout, so let’s change the twerk dance narrative and make it a positive one!
Twerk Off The HatersThe first time we launched Tone N Twerk we got a mix bag of comments from our followers on YouTube especially about my twerking in particular. It was my very first experience with internet trolls and it was nasty.These are real comments from our How To Twerk In 5 Minutes video. I think what bothered me the most is that the people trolling me were and are mostly women. Instead of supporting someone learning a new thing, they would rather point and laugh. It was definitely disheartening, but I don’t let that stop me from doing something that I enjoy. I realized that there’s really something about twerk dance that gets people talking, good or bad, I’m getting the conversation started.
Twerk Dance Is EmpoweringI was definitely one of those people who didn’t think I could twerk or even use twerk as a workout routine. Then I took a class with Nicole Steen, the booty queen and I quickly fell in love with twerk dance! She didn’t let up, cardio then toning then twerking! I saw all the ladies around me that were owning their body, owning the twerk and my soul was feeling recharged and empowered.What I love about twerk is that it’s so raw and grounded. It doesn’t matter what song you twerk to, it always connects to the beat of the music. Twerk dance is really physical and makes me sweat like no other especially when Nicole teaches it. Plus, there’s a vulnerability and a sense of letting go when you twerk that it’s almost cathartic. You get lost in the music and the moves and you end up connecting with yourself. You really have to want to learn to twerk and embrace the sweat to be able to let go. The biggest part of twerking and how it helps empower women is because it’s so self-driven. Twerk dance IS sexy and YOU are sexy for twerking babe! So if you’re up for it, checkout some of my favorite twerk dance workouts and choreography from Nicole and check my twerk moves in the background 😉What’s your opinion on twerking? Comment below.
