Wanna know how to start dancing?

Ok, first things first – we're talking what many people call "Urban Dance," but used "Hip Hop" in this title because the term is misused that often.

In fact, since the initial release of this article, we're no longer using the term "Urban Dance" at all! Read about why here.

But hey! We had to get you here somehow, right? We're just playing Google's game. Anyway, let's get started on learning some dance moves.

STEEZY’s Guide on How To Start Dancing is broken down into 10 sections.

We recommend you go through all of them in order, but you can totally skip to a section you want.
