What Is Twerk Dance?

Twerk dance is where a dancer moves by thrusting or throwing their hips back and forth and shaking their butts, usually in a squat position. This move is mostly performed by women, but not exclusively. Twerking has been around for centuries and it originates back to West Africa. It got popular and mainstream in the 1980’s when the Bounce genre started in New Orleans. Of course, it didn’t stop there. In the 90’s, twerk dance spread like wildfire in black party culture through hip hop and rap areas called The Dirty South.

History Of Twerk Dance

In West Africa, there is a dance called Mapouka that has influenced modern twerk dance. This dance style has existed for centuries and is made up of moves that emphasizes the booty. Mapouka is a dance of celebration that was performed during festivals and people even believed that this dance leads to spiritual experiences with God. Unfortunately, a lot of people looked down on it and deemed it too sexual to a point where Mapouka dancers were getting chased out of their own villages. Fast forward to the 80’s where Bounce music or New Orleans hip hop scene opened the doors to twerk dance in America.
