The hip-hop style started back in the late 60s as a combination of breaking, locking, roboting, popping, and more, with each style being born in different parts of the United States, whether New York or California. There are a few things they have in common, of course, such as the tendency to improvise and the street element. Even now, after all these years, new styles are still being born and if you watch shows like “So You Think You Can Dance” which is at its 14th season right now, you’re bound to notice dancers talking about these styles during the audition rounds. It’s mesmerizing to learn all about it, the influences they have and how the dance came to be. Some, of course, are nicer than others, but as long as one does what they love, that’s enough.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked two of the easiest hip hop dance moves and steps to learn for beginners from their list.

The first one is Feet Shuffle. Now, this is a move that requires a lot of speed once you get the hang of it. Shuffling isn’t necessarily very difficult to do, but you’ll need great coordination. You’ll start by raising your left knee up and, as you’re putting the foot back down, you’re going to do a little jump, pushing your right leg backward. Then, as you raise the right knee up, you’re going to bring your left foot back a bit through a slide, so you have it straight under you and you don’t fall down. The second move is Nae Nae. Back in 2015, Silentó released his hit song called Watch Me (Whip/ Nae Nae), whose video featured a rather catchy rhythm and some dance moves everyone wanted to learn. Since then, the moves have been danced all over the world, becoming a phenomenon. The moves are easy, and they start by you loosening up and exercising your balance. You’ll want to spread your legs a bit, bend your knees and spread your arms – one upwards and one downwards, laterally away from your body. You’ll be doing this while swinging from your left hip to your right hip. And there you go, now you can nae nae to the song with the one of the easiest hip hop dance moves and steps to learn for beginners.
