The Older Set React to Young People Twerking

We might have chuckled at our parents when they tried to understand the trends of our generation. Elvis’s swinging hips encouraged the glares of many disapproving parents. Now, it’s our turn to be floored by the acts of kids these days. The latest trend hitting nightclubs everywhere, twerking – a combination of twisting and jerking – has jaws dropping. The dance move that is putting the winding ways of “dirty dancing” to shame is shocking even self-described “free spirits.” Embraced by young female celebrities like Miley Cyrus, it is suggestive, to say the very least. Watch as it is explained to the older set in the clip above. “It looks like she’s riding a horse!” is our favourite comment of the group. What do you think of twerking?
