The dance form is more than just sensually shaking your hips

While most dance moves focus on shaking your body and going loose, twerking is all about exercising the lower body. Twerking is a dance that involves high movements of the buttocks and hips.

From sensually shaking the butt, squatting, and flaunting one's figure in a bent-over position, this dance is mainly about showing off the curves and melting one's partner. It is one of the dance forms, similar to belly dancing and bachata, which is sexually suggestive and not everyone's cup of tea.
