Twerking…Now Popular Because of Miley Cyrus?
If you’re a sexy pole dancer (like the 300+ pole dancers we had participate in Bringing Sexy Back 2013), then twerking probably isn’t new to you, but why is it so new to every one else? Funny how one celebrity who basically looked like a fool on stage for 3 minutes can make something so popular overnight. Don’t get us wrong, we like Miley. She makes really fun music and she’s doing her thing, we totally get it. But, why hasn’t anyone else gotten credit for twerking before, like all the girls that do it in hundreds upon thousands of music videos? Or the girls who do it for money at a strip club? Or the girls who do it for fun in pole videos? Or….the list could go on and on. Fuse.com recently made a time line of twerking for all of you who don’t know the mid-twenty year old dance craze’s life from roots in New Orleans to Bubba Sparxx to Jay-Z and somehow to Miley and the Oxford English Dictionary. Check it out here. One thing is for sure, no one, and we mean NO ONE, twerks like Torwa Joe aka Fiya Starter, owner of Vertical Joe’s in Atlanta. We took an instructor’s twerk/booty clap workshop with Torwa and thanks to her we all enjoy twerking! Forget Miley, Torwa is where it’s at! Check out her video from the Great Midwest Pole Dance Convention 2013! http://youtu.be/q5f5hojxsgE Photo via Fuse.com
