Freedom of movements
The body is a wave
Anything goes
Still there’s rhythm
Take it to the front
Slide
Do the grapevine
One, two, three, pop
Roll it, roll it, crack!

Take it slow
Move like a river flow,
Now hit it really quick
Faster than a clock could tick

Do the robotics,
Your choice,
Do the matrix

Small move, big move
Do the groove
Make your muscles work

Do a backglide
Not a moonwalk
You slide, pop and lock

Right
Front
Left
Back

Pop the neck
Pop the shoulders
Pop the chest
Now your hip—
Hop!
