The twerk, which has gained great popularity in the world, focuses on the movements of the pelvic area. Twerk has its roots in various African American and African dances, including mapouka, baikoko, niko and chakacha. As a result of slavery, dances related to the cultural traditions of African countries, cultures and tribes have been mixed. That is why the roots of twerk cannot be associated with the dances of just one region or cultural tradition. The concept of Twerk was introduced in the late 80’s, e.g. in the context of the bounce hip hop trend in New Orleans.

Twerk moves can be easily taken to the dance floor and probably that is why it is commonly seen at parties. During twerk classes, you will get diversely familiar with various techniques, such as shaking, jiggle, thrusting and throwing the hip and bounce as well as some floorwork. At the beginning of the classes, we will have a warm-up, after which we will go through some basic movements. Twerk improves physical fitness comprehensively, especially back, thigh, buttock and abdominal muscles.

You need knee pads to the twerk classes. which you can buy from our dance studios (30 €).
