Name: Class: Professor: Date: Twerking as an American social dance Introduction The topic of my paper is the twerking dance as one of the most popular social dances. A brief history about twerking reveals that it originated from Africa. However, it first emerged in America during the New Orleans’s bounce music scene that happened in the year 1993 (Lynch 2).

During his performance of the song, DJ Jubilee was fond of telling the crowd to Twerk, Twerk, and Twerk (Lynch 3). However, it was until the year 2003, when the urban dictionary defined twerking. It defined twerking as an act of working the body during dancing, especially with the female dancers by concentrating on the rear end. Therefore, twerking is a dance move that encompasses vigorous but rhythmic shaking of the butts especially by the females. Twerking does not discriminate races or social classes; anyone can twerk either individually or as a group.

In this paper, the twerking dance will be covered with the aim of dispelling the misconceptions that are surrounding it. Moreover,
