The rhythmic gyrating of the lower fleshy extremities in a lascivious manner with the intent to elicit sexual arousal or laughter in ones intended audience.
Twerking is a type of dance originating as part of the bounce music scene of New Orleans in the late 1980s. Individually-performed, chiefly but not exclusively by cis- and trans-gender females, dancers move in a sexually-provocative manner throwing or thrusting their hips back and/or shaking their ass, often in a low squatting stance.
Twerking is part of a larger set of characteristic moves unique to the New Orleans style of hip-hop known as “Bounce.” Moves include “mixing,” “exercising,” the “bend over,” the “shoulder hustle,” “clapping,” and “the wild wood” — all recognized as “booty shaking” or “bounce.” Twerking is but one choreographic gesture within bounce.
