Top 6 Most Underrated Viral Dances | Viral Dance Moves Explained | STEEZY.CO

December 20, 2019


2018 was a big year for viral dance.
With dances like the Shoot or the Woah challenges like Sierra’s #levelup or
Shiggy’s #inmyfeelings with Drake and even fortnight. A lot of great dances
actually flew under the radar, so here are STEEZY’s Top 6 Most Underrated Viral Dances. Number one: the Benny Whip. Made by King Imprint from Georgia, the Benny Whip is similar to the Nae Nae but with some pretty notable differences. For
this move, the weight shifting is a little different. You put the weight on
your toes and your hand is positioned like you’re holding an actual whip.
Number two: the Gwara-Gwara Made by South African dance music artist, DJ Bongz, the Gwara-Gwara gained more mainstream notoriety last year from
music videos like Childish Gambino’s “This is America”, Rihanna’s Grammy
performance, and BTS’s hit single “Idol” Most people associate this move with the
stanky leg because they can look similar but the Gwara-Gwara is different with the
leg turning in and the adding of an arm or shoulder. Number three: the Billy
Bounce. Made by Supercliff, the Billy Bounce was first viral on Vine, and an
online dance culture around 2014. RIP Vine The way you do it is you bring one leg behind you and bounce them in and out while you go side to side. Number four: the Smeeze Huge shout-out to Chonkie from the bay area. You might recognize this dance as the iconic jumping move, but there’s actually a lot
more to it than just the hop and the shoulder. You can add in a drumming
motion with your hands and also swing an arm up. Number five: the Salsa walk. Made by YP Hood Rich and Barber Mon Ruffin, this move is a great example of how you can
take inspiration from another style, like Salsa, and add your own personalized
flavor to it. There are three parts to this move: the Salsa step, the sauce
sprinkle, and taking them to the rodeo. Number six: the Bust Down. Made by new LA rapper Blueface, the Bust Down is the flagship dance of his new hit song
“Thotiana”. This one requires a stretchy waistband
or belt, and you’re gonna twirl it, drop the hips with a bounce, and get it poppin.

    "The bust down" is originally from the bay area and from turf feinz with members like chonkster. Blue face just made it popular ??‍♂️

    I was expecting underrated dance videos but instead, I ended up watching 6 cheesy dance moves which failed to get viral like the other cheesy dance moves. None of this is underrated.

    Need platforms to speak out and document this kind of movement so the knowledge never gets lost/twisted, thanks for making that step steezy

    Always thought that Billy bounce was actually called plug walk because of Josh Killacky

  • Reply Ben Donner February 11, 2019 at 9:02 am

    Blue face didn't create "Busy Down". "Bust down" is from Turfing in the Bay Area. It's been around since '03. Hella wack

    Nice ones, and what a pleasant surprise to see BTS ?

    ⚠️CORRECTION ⚠️

    The Bust Down is actually a much older move (than described in the video). It was called Jawsin in 2006 and originated from Oakland, California. Made by Chonkie & the Turf Feinz, this move has roots in Bay Area party dances such as the Smeeze or the Yike. TurfFeinz Crew is also internationally recognized for Turfing with the members striving for the advancement of the culture and recognition of the art form.

    STEEZY strives to provide the most authentic and thorough dance knowledge to the public. Thank you Eugene Phomthevy for pointing this piece of information out to us and starting the dialogue. And shout out to Chonkie & the Turf Fienz for creating this move that carried its legacy into the Bust Down!

    Agreed on being underrated, really thought Benny's whip & B Nard's bounce videos would've made them more long lived. Peace.
