Living It Up: Hip Hop Dance
Lets face it, many of us have embarrassed ourselves on the dance floor. But tonight, Jackie is correcting her two left feet. She's Living It Up with some of the hottest teen dancers in South Florida.
(WSVN) -- We're living it up at Bally's in Aventura. This time, I'm seeing what it takes to become a member of Pop Starz. Now when it comes down to the hippest in Hip Hop, these guys behind me, they know the routine.
Jackie: "Tell me just simply what is Pop Starz."
Taw: "It's a company to showcase the local talent in Miami and to give them the hottest and the latest training in the Hip Hop style of dancing."
Jackie: "What kind of tips can you give me cause I've never done this before."
Taw: "You have to completely relax, completely just have fun with it."
Taw: "Whatever type of music is playing with it, fast Salsa pumping you know, you just kind of vibe off of it."
Jackie: "Well you can see Pop Starz is starting to warm up. They're going to show me a little bit of their dance moves. Lets see if I can do them, cause these kids are great."
Jackie: "How come they look so much cooler doing it?"
Taw: "Now we're going to turn with it, just turn step."
Jackie: "I'll be dateless after people see this."
Taw: "If you do that in a club they will think you are the woman."
Taw: "This is a simple little step right here, so you're going to add a little brush off on the shoulder so it's kind of like get back kind of step lean away from it and brush off the should from it like this, back and a back."
Jackie: "If I try to do this in the club they're going to think somethings wrong with me, I'm just not cool."
Taw: "5, 6, 5, 6, 7, 8"
Girls: "Go Jackie go Jackie"
Taw: "She is the bomb."
Jackie falls to the ground and says: "This is hard."
Jackie: "I'm worn out. I'm going to watch them dance, because they're much better than me."
Jackie: "Well that's what it's like Living It Up with Pop Starz."
Be sure to join us on Tuesday as Jackie puts on the boxing gloves.
She's jumping in the ring at a South Beach gym.
