How To Do The Harlem Shake – A Brief Tutorial

Even though it is very amusing to see a school in Minnesota doing the Harlem Shake in the snow, or a nursing home in Florida doing the Harlem Shake on Youtube, let’s remember what this dance is.

What is it?  One of the best posts on this topic was recently posted by a friend to Harlem Condo Life, Harlem Trends who blogged,

Not to get to preachy, but it actually is a real dance.  The Harlem Shake is an Old School move and has been around for a long time.  Though it has spiraled into a whole new media frenzy with Brooklyn’s dubstep musical artist Baaúer, let’s try and get at least some of the moves right.

You can spot the real dance move being done, as we have been posting about here at Harlem Condo Life on twitter @HarlemHCL for the last couple months, in only a couple of the videos.  Some are really good, some are just ok.  But most all of them are lacking at least one person doing the actual dance.

So that being said if you want to learn this move, below is a tutorial.                  (Watch some of our favorite Harlem Shake VIDEOS below)
