The key to performing the Twist properly is that you must use both your legs and your torso, often in opposite directions.
Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent.
Lift your right arm and leg Lift your left arm and leg.
It sounds simple, but at high speeds, it can result in a crazy dance.
In some cases, the lyrics instructed listeners in how to perform the dance.
However, often the singers just implored dancers to "do the [name of dance]." It was up to friends, DJs, and television programs such as to spread the moves to the latest dance craze.
For the grand finale, hold your nose and pretend to be sinking under water.
When listening to Chubby Checker's popular song, the only way to move is to twist your body back and forth to the beat.
And so, rather than pushing boundaries, queer tango is a return to the origins of the dance.
Stand with your feet together and bend your knees slightly.
Move your hips to the right, and then move them to the left.
Shake your shoulders back and forth while holding the rest of your body still.
Your arms should be held to the side with elbows slightly bent. While your lower body is doing the frug or the twist, your arms are swimming and diving.
