(Tips to dance sexier at the bottom of this page!)
Let me set the tone for you. Growing up, my family always seemed to be behind the times when it came to technology. Heck, I remember writing papers on a typewriter in grade school cause we didn’t have a computer at home like all the other kids did. I also grew up in a fairly conservative household (I think it’s important that I say that I am very appreciative of the upbringing I had, cause it helped shape me into the woman I am today.)
So I was in the 8th grade, sitting in my family room at my parent’s house. We had just gotten access to TV channels that were not just the local news on 2, 4, or 7 or WB. With this new Cable TV Plan, I had just discovered a channel called MTV Hits. It was 100% devoted to playing music videos, non-stop, 24/7.
Like I said, I grew up in a pretty sheltered home and didn’t listen to most popular music. Somehow I managed to get my mom to buy me Nsync CDs, but that was it. So seeing all these music videos and hearing this music for the first time was a whole new world for me.
All the sudden, as song with bold trumpets and a strong beat came on. It was Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love.” When I tell you I couldn’t keep my eyes off the TV.. I was completely mesmerized. I had never seen a woman so confident. She completely owned every inch of her movement.
The first move that blew me away in that video: the booty bounce. You know the move I’m talking about. Holy crap, how was she doing that?! She had so much control, I could not take my eyes off of her. And then in the chorus when she sang “Your touch got me looking so crazy right now,” she did this move where she licked her thumb and brought it down through her chest while she rolled her body. It was at that moment that I decided I had to learn how to do that. I don’t remember if I tried doing the move then and there. I probably didn’t cause of self-conscious/ perfectionist issues, even though no one else was there. But from that day, recording the music videos on our DVR, and I started studying the movement.
Fast forward 15 year, I am the queen of body rolls and hair whips. It’s actually something I’m known for. And it has been over these past 15 years that I’ve learned what makes a dance move feel sexy and how to embrace my own sexy.
And I see so many women who want to feel as confident and sexy as Beyoncé looks in her music videos, but they’re not sure how. Maybe they have no one to teach you. Or maybe they feel like they look stupid when they try. Can you relate?
