What Is Twerking?

Twerk dancing is a dance form, mainly performed by women where they thrust and shake their hips in the low squatting position. So, what is Twerking? Or what is the history of Twerk, where and how it originated? These questions must be running in your mind.

Twerking is a famous dance form, originated from the Island of Jamaica, and traces its origin to the famous dance form ‘Mapouka,’ performed in West Africa. The artists performing this dance form do the sissy bounce to the bounce music. It is mainly performed by women from the New Orleans African-American community. Miley Cyrus firstly performed this ‘twist’ and ‘jerk’ dance form during one of the award functions in 2013. This made twerk dancing a viral sensation among the women.
