Twerking; Is This The Death Dance?

Twerking; Is This The Death Dance?

A dance move made the deadline in a number of stories. Should it be banned?

OK. I’ve learnt of this disco dance move called Twerking, and know nothing of it, so I’ve done a quick search on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Here is my report!

Twerking, is a “dance move,” OK. Its not a new form of twitter as some blokes have said to me! A “Twerk” as some folk say, is to dance in a sultry/ sexy way while twisting the body. Twerking in itself,  involves the person shaking their hips and butt, sideways and up and down at the same time. This is to make a  shake, ‘wobble’ and ‘jiggle’.”

So what’s the Etymology behind all this? Well the word seems to come from one of two sources:

  1. the phrase “twerk it,” which in turn was created from combining “to” and “work it.”
  2. a portmanteau of twist and jerk.[1]

the dance seems to have started in New Orleans, Louisiana, and some say it involves mixing traditional African dances, like Mapouka. In any case, its a faze done mostly by the African American population. But I feel Britian may have had a hand in it. In the 1970’s, The Goddies tv sketch show did a segment of a viral motion that took over the world, called, THE BOUNCE, where everyone felt to need to bounce thier bottoms up and down where they sat, or on “invisable” chairs.

Otherwise, Twerking took hold back in 1993, where DJ Jubilee recorded the dance tune, “Do The Jubilee All,” where he chanted “twerk baby, twerk baby, twerk, twerk, twerk.” A video for this song was also released, which increased the popularity of twerking.

And its been used in the strip clubs of Houston and Atlanta. In 2011 The Twerk Team was mentioned in the song “Round of Applause” by Atlanta-based rapper Waka Flocka Flame featuring Drake: “Bounce that ass, shake that ass like the Twerk Team”. And now, time for infamy; the bad stuff!

In 2013, 33 students from Scripps Ranch High School were suspended for using school equipment to make a twerking video on school grounds that was later uploaded to YouTube. It casued quite a stir, but not as much in the next article I wrote. Have a look at http://beyondjane.com/women/lingerie-football-league-do-women-really-want-this/. A woman football game took a turn when a black player did a twerk on a rivals head. If that didnt tiant the sprt and the dance, i don’t  know what will.

So i guess that leaves one question. Will i Twerk? Well, I havent had the opertunity, and I guess it wont look good from me as i have a penis. But, when the time comes, i’ll give it a try.

Ta very much for reading, and share it over!
