This move was popularized through a TikTok challenge where groups of friends would walk in front of the camera one at a time and Throw it Back right on the bass beat of the viral “Throw it Back” sound from TikToker Tay.

Due to the body rolling and booty movements, the dance is considered pretty feminine, but if you’re a guy, fear not – it looks good on everybody.

How to Throw it Back:

  1. Start by standing with the left side of your body facing a mirror, feet about 6 inches apart
  2. Then, do a body roll, moving your chest up, arching your back, and then sending your booty back
  3. Now, to add in the leg motion, you’re going to bring your left knee up in scooping motion as you body roll
  4. With each knee scoop, allow your left hand to rest on your upper left thigh, so your arm becomes part of the backward motion

All done!

Keep in mind, you can also Throw it Back on the right side if that feels more natural to you. ;)
