Ciara is known for many things, but one of her greatest skills is her dancing abilities. Who hasn’t tried to copy her dance moves in videos like “1,2 Step” and “Ride”? Or hurt their back doing the Matrix, which was one of her staples early in her career? Any dance move you can think of, the 33-year-old beauty can smoothly execute.
So, if you’ve ever wanted to learn some old and new dance moves from the dance machine, you’ll be glad to know your opportunity has come. In a clip for Vogue.com, the star broke down five of her favorite moves to her new song “Dose” at the Grand Prospect Hall in Brooklyn. Those moves include Bucking, the 1,2 step, Get Up, Woah and the Round da Way. Sis busted out those party-starting moves while wearing everything from a Calvin Klein jumpsuit to Alexander Wang leggings and a Marc Jacobs bodysuit.
This isn’t the first time we’ve had the chance to watch Ciara bust a serious move outside of her videos. While heavily pregnant, she did a whole dance routine to Whitney Houston’s “I’m Every Woman,” she’s showed off her moves on a roof to the sounds of Cardi B’s “Bartier Cardi,” and she was even featured in Drake’s “In My Feelings” video for her homemade clip, alongside hubby Russell Wilson, where they took part in the #InMyFeelingsChallenge. However, this is the first time she’s offering you some insight on how to execute her moves. Don’t expect to be able to be on the level of one of her backup dancers immediately, but at least you’ll have some fun moves ready to play around with in the mirror.
As for her classic moves, she admits they can get a little redundant to do when touring, but she understands it’s what the fans love to see.
“Sometimes you get bored of the same moves, but you know that there are those moves that those fans love,” she told TIME in 2015. “And you better not change those moves or you might create a little confusion! It’s those key moments that people remember because they mark the special creative moments you shared. It’s only right that you give them that thing they’ve loved from the beginning of the song or era.”
