How to Twerk with your hands on your knees:

  1. Stand sideways in front of a mirror with your feet a little more than shoulder-width apart and toes pointed outward
  2. Then drop into a squat position with your hands on your knees (keep your weight focused forward)
  3. Now arch your back to bring your booty upward
  4. Then, relax your back muscles to drop your booty back down
  5. Now start practicing the arch, drop, arch, drop movement faster and faster to start Twerking

That's it!

Keep in mind that your back muscles should squeeze when you arch and fully relax when you drop your booty down. This relaxing of the muscles is what allows your booty to jiggle!

P.S. Don’t forget to look back at it! ;)
