How To Dance Zanku Legwork

Steps on how to dance Zanku legwork are as follows:

Step 2

Try to bend your neck to the direction of the floor and start lifting your legs(one by one) on a spot.

Step 3

Start moving your elbows – each to the opposite direction(right to left, left to right) like you want to give an upper-cut but not really doing it(LOL). You should be dancing by now.

Step 4

Then lift your right leg a bit(not too high though). Just after your right leg is about to touch the floor(after lifting it up), lift your left leg, but in this case, higher than the other leg you just brought down.
