“Glee” producers originally hired Heather Morris to teach the cast the choreography to Beyonce’s “Single Ladies“. They were so impressed by Morris, they asked her to stay and the rest is history. If it wasn’t for Morris’ amazing dance skills, Brittany the cheerleader might not exist. It’s unimaginable to think of Glee without Brittany’s hysterical one-liners.
Once again, Heather’s dancing talents have landed her a gig. Even though Esquire magazine doesn’t watch “Glee”, they think Morris is awesome and enlisted her for their latest feature. The men’s magazine asked Heather to slither, strut and shake her groove thing to a selection of songs for their “50 Songs Every Man Should Be Listening To“. In addition to the sexy video, Morris offers a few dancing suggestions to guys who want to look cool at the club.
Get really into it.
The simplest way to do something cool is the cross-turn. Like in the ’80s — Michael Jackson did it. You jump and cross your legs together at the same time, and then spin out of it. That’s it.
Still, I find it so much better to see a guy at a club being a dork, and having fun, than trying to be sexy.
Looking down and shuffling is pretty great. But not the Running Man.
I can’t stand it when someone comes up behind a girl and grabs her hips and tries to grind with her. It’s offensive. Why would you do that to me?
You know what’s really hot? Pop-and-locking, ticking. The moonwalk. Tricks like that.
The secret to moonwalking: You have to have slick shoes, or else your feet would get stuck. And you trick people. Your right foot pops, and you’re pushing your left foot back, and once your left foot lands, you do the same thing. It just looks like you’re gliding on air.
