Hello out there! This is your girl Alex from the Tri-State area, and today I'm going to show you a fun move from the 1920s. If you don't know anything about the 1920s, just know that they had a great time when it came to dance. So, basically, this dance is called the Black Bottom. It's very funky and it's very fun. And basically, it's one of those things that you just don't have to think about; you just do it and you have fun. So, basically, you want to start off with your arms and it'll be pointing to the right and pointing to the left like so. And then, you want to add your legs in there where it's kind of a sliding movement, like this. So, you do that while you're pointing your arms; it's so much fun. So, that's one part of the dance. The second part of the dance is you have your hands on your hips and you go in a circular motion, like so. Again, like I said, just having a good time. So, let's try to put that altogether. Again, with your arms, so it's one, two, three, four and now with your hips, five, six, seven, eight. And that my friends is the Black Bottom.
