How to do the hip sway from "MOVE" by Taemin

  1. Stand with your legs apart, wider than your shoulders, and rest your hands by your side.
  2. Move your hips towards the right on count 1. Bring your left heel inward on 2. Move your hips to the left on 3 and bring your right heel in on 4. Repeat each side twice over the course of the 8 count.
  3. Once you've got the main movement down, add a little drama to it by moving your hips in a figure 8 rather than just side to side. As you bring your hips from right to left, imagine you're drawing an "8" in the air.

That's it!

This move is super simple, but there are a few tips to keep in mind if you really want to nail it.

First, make sure that you don't over-exaggerate. Keep the hip movements minimal so you look cool and confident.

Second, keep your gaze focused forward and narrow your eyes a little to make the facial more intense. You want to create a sexy, piercing look.
