How to Do the limbo dance

The limbo. Everybody knows what it is, but amazingly, only a small percentage of the population has actually participated in a limbo dance. Most think it's a thing for a huge party, but you only need a few to have fun with it. Find out just how low you can go by dancing the limbo with your friends.

You Will Need
* Two or more people
* A three-foot long stick
* Music

Step 1: Have a friend hold the stick waist-high
Have a friend hold the stick so that one end is at their waist and the other sticks out. Another friend can hold the other end to make it more stable. Play music.

Step 2: Bend your knees, lean backwards, move toward the stick
Stand two feet from the stick, bend your knees, and lean backwards so your chest is facing up. Inch your way toward the stick

Don't start with the stick too low — work your way down.

Step 3: Limbo under the stick
Move under the stick while you are leaning backwards. Try not to fall down or touch the stick.

Step 4: Stand up and lower the stick
Stand up and have the stick lowered closer to the ground. Circle back to the starting position, and try to limbo your way under again.

Start a limbo line, with one person following the next, shimmying under the stick.

Step 5: Continue lowering the stick until you can't go any lower
Continue lowering the stick and going under it again until you fall down.

FACT: Chubby Checker's song "Limbo Rock" peaked at the number two spot on the Billboard Charts in 1962.
