Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 28, 2014
Out of the many dance crazes which came out last year, one of those that stayed culturally relevant up to this present time is the Twerk. Commonly associated nowadays with international pop star Miley Cyrus, the move has become very popular mainly because of the “suggestiveness” behind the execution of said move.
However, what many people are not aware of is that there is a great deal of history that belies the seemingly superfluous nature of the Twerk. For instance, a writer has already attested to the fact that “twerking” was being performed in many West African Christian churches as part their religious services up to this day. Clearly, there is more to the move than what most cultural commentators simply perceive.
Because of this, a new article on Vinamy.com was recently published to shed light on the cultural history of Twerking and its significance in today’s hyper-connected era. Called “How was Twerking Invented: Three Instances of Why This is the Hottest Dance Move in the World”, this report contains three sections that focus on giving readers the most fundamental information on the history of the Twerk and why it has become the phenomenon it is now.
In the first section of the report, the article provides readers with a brief background on how Twerking may have shared the same history with the main art form which it has spun from, Hiphop. Namely, it deals with the issues of how both Twerking and Hiphop came out of the same continent and are just modern expressions of a long-forgotten culture which passes its tradition by way of oral history.
The second part of the article, on the other hand, reveals the “modern” uses of Twerking which dates back as recently as twenty years ago. In particular, it discusses how Twerking has become a staple of the New Orleans “Bounce” scene where it was continually referenced by many urban artists until its most recent explosion of popularity thanks to Miley Cyrus incorporating the move into her regular dance routines.
David Fisher from the site Vinamy.com says of the article: “This informative article is actually very helpful and has tips for teaching people why there is more to ‘twerking’ than just performing a simple dance move. It shows the full history of the move that is almost lost to time, and it can be very useful for people who want to perform a simple flexibility exercise through this move.”
