3 Simple Dance Moves for Beginners (Hip Hop Dance Moves Tutorial) | Mihran Kirakosian

(Mihran Kirakosian)
(3 simple dance moves for beginners tutorial) Hi everyone! Welcome back to another tutorial, my name
is Mihran Kirakosian. Today we’re going to work on 3 moves, 3 basic
moves. So, if you’re a beginner this is perfect for
you! Just to start it off, we’re going to start
off with a step touch. Real simple! It’s all about your attitude. It’s all about bending your knees, giving
that bounce, giving that flavor. Okay, so simple. Right to left, we’re going one, two, three,
four, five, six, seven, eight. Good. okay so, a lot of people when they do this
and if they’ve never done it before, they become very stiff and their arms…they don’t
know what to do with their arms. So you want to loosen up the arms. As a beginner, maybe just clap to keep the
beat. Just so your arms are working and then once
you feel comfortable you can kind of do your own thing. So I’ll just do one with a clap, six, seven,
eight. We’re going one, two, three, four, five, six,
seven, eight. Good. As you can see, I bend my knees all the time
so I am in this bounce vibe the whole time. So not sitting up and standing up like this,
okay. So one more time. Five, six, seven, eight. Step one, two, three, four, five, six, seven,
eight. So all I’m doing is going step, touch, step,
touch, step, touch, step, touch. So eight counts okay! One last time. Here we go, five, six, seven, eight. Go one, two, three, four, five, six, seven,
eight. Good. The second move we’re going to do, same idea
but we’re going to stay in place and our leg is going to go out and then come back in for
the touch. Okay, so we’re going to step out with our
right leg, six, seven. And we’re going to go step, bring it in, touch,
step, touch, step, touch, step, touch. Good. So, remember you’re going to stay in the
center. You’re not going to move, your leg is going
to step out and then it’s going to come back in. Another thing to remember, you’re always want
to stay on your toes. Okay. You want to be able to move quick. So when I step out, I don’t put my leg flat
down on the ground. Yeah, it’s always up on my toes. If you look at it from the side, I’m always
doing that. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Good. When I’m on the ball of my feet, it is very
easy for me to just switch anytime I want. So one last time! Staying in the middle. Six, seven, eight. I’m going… one, two, three, four, five,
six, seven, eight. Good. So let’s connect move one and move two together. Here we go. Five, six, seven, eight. Step one, two, three, four, five, six, seven,
eight. Second move, one, two, three, four, five,
six, seven, perfect. Let’s do it one more time. This time no break in between we just go. Five, six, seven, eight and one, two, three,
four, five, six, seven, eight. Step one, two, three, four, five, six, seven,
eight. Good. This brings us to the last step, the third
step which is again, similar but now we’re going to involve a slide. So what you’re going to do is similar to the
first one but you’re going to take a big step out with your right leg and then you’re going
to drag the left leg in to create a slide. So you’re going to go…one step, two, three
step, four, five step, six, seven step, eight. Good. Now, do the same thing but the leg that I’m
dragging stays on my toes and I drag it. So I go, one, two, three, four, five, six,
seven, eight. Good. I’ll stand profile so you can see my feet. Same thing, I’m going to take a big step back. You’re going to see me, uhhh, drag my right
leg and you’re going to see it on my toes. So you’re going to go, one, two, three, four,
five, six, seven, eight. Good. So you can do whatever arms you want to do,
like I said clap in the beginning if you’re a beginner, if you want to loosen up you can
push, one, two, three. Yea, you can push down, one, two, three. You can use both hands, one, two, three. So whatever you want! Let’s go back to the top, let’s connect step
one, step two and step three all together. Here we go, five, six, seven, eight. We’re going one, two, three, four, five, six,
seven, eight. Go one, two, three, four, five, six, seven,
last step go slide two, slide four, slide six, slide eight. Perfect! Let’s do that one more time! Here we go, five, six, seven, eight. Go one, two, three, make sure your knees are
bent, five, six, seven, in place. One, two, three, four, you can turn your body
a little bit, hit, seven, eight and slide, and slide, and slide, and slide. Good. So three basic moves for you to start on if
you’re a beginner. Simple, simple stuff just keep doing it over
and over until you get comfortable with it. Again, I’ve seen people do these steps and
looks easy but if you’ve never done it you get really stiff and you don’t know what to
do with your arms so you want to pass that. Okay. So start, make sure the knees are bent, make
sure you’re quick on your feet, stay on your toes so you can move easily and then be comfortable
with your upper body. Move your arms, feel good, move your body. Okay, let’s do it one more time together. Here we go, five, six, seven, eight. Go one, two, three, four, five, six, seven,
eight. Go step, two, step four, five, six, last one. Here we go, slide, slide, slide, slide. That’s it guys! Get through that, really simple. If you want to learn some more simple steps
and you’re just starting out, please leave your comments in the comment box. Let me know what you want me to work on and
I’ll see you guys next week with another move.
