Time to put on your dancing shoes!

#1) Moon Walk

#1) Moon Walk

As if the floor is pulling you back when you're trying to move forward! It's all about moving back with one foot totally on the floor and heel of the other toe raised. Keep switching your feet. Nobody can do it smoothly the way MJ did! What a guy!

B-boying originated among African American and Latino youth and became the most amazing form of street dance in the US.

Remember "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" by Wham? Just sway your head and twist your hands with your legs in the same place. That's how it's done!

It's like picking up something from a rack in a grocery store and keeping it in your shopping cart.

#5) Pop'n Lock

Remember 'Uptown Girl' video by Billy Joel? You basically have to wave your arms slowly, lock your joints for a second, and then release and move them again.

The one by M.C. Hammer with baggy genie pants, legs wide apart and slight jerks. And don't forget to shuffle quick one way to the other.

Most loved dance step when happy! It's done by keeping hands together with fists closed and moving them in a horizontal, circular motion. Remember Gucci Crew II songs?

#9) Lambada

Probably the sexiest dance of all times! The 80's were swayed away by this hot dance craze where the partners bump and grind each others thighs and the guy spins the girl at lighting-fast speed.

#10) Michael Jackson Circles

#10) Michael Jackson Circles

To dance like the God of dance, Michael Jackson, you need to stand up straight and slide your feet in a box shape. Your body should move in the same way your feet are,and while going into turns, pretend to be stuck in that way.

#11) Para Para

#11) Para Para

The dance came out from Japan's disco/Euro beat club culture of the 70's and 80's. Just keep moving your legs in and out at a time and that's how it goes on.

#12) The Snake

#12) The Snake

Its all about moving like a snake. Belly is moved in a fancy way with hands either kept open or fists closed.
