Tip of the week: How to master the moonwalk

To learn Michael Jackson’s signature dance move...

Bend one knee. To learn Michael Jackson’s signature dance move, start with your right foot firmly on the ground. Bend your left leg and put all your weight on that foot.

Bring the other leg back. Pulling from the hips, let your right leg slide backward, making sure your knee is straight and your whole foot is planted on the ground. At the same time, “swing left arm forward.”

Switch it up. Once you’ve pulled your right leg behind you, shift your weight from your left leg to your right while “bending right knee and lifting right heel.” Straighten your left leg and slide it backward, again keeping the whole foot on the ground. Your right arm swings with this motion.

Put it together. If MJ’s spirit moves you, you can attempt his signature crotch grab as your feet sweep the floor. When you’re done, go to Moonwalk-forever.com to check out other moonwalkers and see the competition you’re up against.
