The original Dougie dance was named and inspired by rapper Doug. E. Fresh, from the 80’s and 90’s.
He'd hit these smooth, swaggy dance moves when performing on stage.
Then, rapper Lil’ Wil made a track in 2007 called “My Dougie”. The Dougie was done in his video and it went viral!
Later on this dance became part of the Jerking movement. It became a foundational move of the Jerking dance style and evolved to have a faster pace.
Of course, the Dougie might change, depending on the region, but the core remains the same!
