Some of my fondest memories from childhood was when I'd bust out my Moonwalker VHS and practice all of Michael Jackson's greatest moves. Needless to say, as I sit here typing this post, that my dancing career failed before it began. I have a few decent moves on the dance floor now, but don't expect to see me trying anything special unless tequila is involved.
Contemporary dance moves are more technical and definitely more serious than your average club dance. You won't be seeing the Booty Dance in any contemporary dance classes, that's for sure.
Just click on the video to learn my original dance move...Marswalk! :)

The details about Lady Gaga's newest album, Born This Way, are still sketchy, with rumors floating around about confirmed songs and release dates, but nothing has been confirmed officially, except that it will be released in 2011, sometime after Gaga's done promoting her Monster Ball Tour.
To many, Lady Gaga's "Alejandro" was a very mystifying - or just outright weird - music video with gay trysts, frozen hearts, and android costumes. While the music video itself has themes and motifs yet to be explored and explained, the dance moves are easily broken down.
In her music video for "Can't Be Tamed," Miley Cyrus pushes the bar past anything her pop star alter ego Hannah Montana would have ever dared to do. With feathery lashes, heavy cat eyes sparkling with aqua shadow, wings, and a $5,000 corset that leaves little to the imagination, Cyrus very officially separated herself from her Disney past.
You may not have Katy Perry's handmade Swavarski crytal-incrusted booty shorts or cupcake bra from her cheeky music video for "California Gurls," but at least now you can dance and shake your bootay like her.
Are you a JBiebz (AKA Justin Bieber) fan? If so, then you've probably seen the Usher apprentice kicking out some fancy hip hop dance moves on stage at concerts and other live events.
Young pop star Jessica Jarrell is as cute as can be. With tight, curly hair and a funky, hipster sense of style, she's that popular girl at school you love to hate because she's so damn nice.
Willow Smith, AKA Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith's progeny, is a girl with lots of talent (not to mention crazy style. She wore a leather jacket and faux hawk to a recent red carpet event).
Whether you like Chris Brown or not, you've got to admit that the boy's got moves. Originally called the next Michael Jackson, the pop star dances and croons his way through his music video for "Deuces."
Chris Brown's "Forever" is a sweet song about dancing with a girl on the dance floor forever - about meeting that perfect person that you click with right away. The choreography from the music video for the song is likewise perfectly on cue and smooth.
Have you ever found yourself trying to jam in a club to a groovin' hip hop song but the best you can churn out is a little hip sway and butter grinder action?
Want to have the ladies come to YOU in the club, rather than waiting around staring at them creepily and coming in from behind hoping to get some action? Then boy, you need to learn some dance moves.
Whether you like Chris Brown or not, it's safe to say that the boy's got moves. Whether he's doing Michael Jackson's moonwalk onstage or pulling off an a very complex toe spin in a music video, he's very smooth on his feet.
You may love Lady Gaga's crazy "Alejandro" music video; you may not. But there's no disputing that her dance moves are well played and very sexy.
Rihanna's song "What's My Name?" is a sexy song about sexy good times (ie. it's about a guy who makes her feel good in, er, every way possible), so it only makes sense that the dance sequence is smooth and cool.
Most Westerners who are familiar with J-Pop have strong feelings about it one way or the other. If you're one of it's many obsessed fans, watch this video to learn how to do the dance from the music video for "Boom Boom Meccha Maccho" by Japanese girl group Gyaruru.
Lady GaGa and Beyonce blew up the charts early in 2010 with "Telephone" and the music video featured more of the awesome dancing and imagery that has made GaGa videos and concerts famous. Watch this video to learn the choreography and steps to the dance done during the last chorus in the music video for "Telephone".
Nowadays, thinking about why we fell for MC Hammer during the '90s escapes us: the too-big pants and funky songs are more than we care to think about now. But the guy sure knew how to shake what his mama gave him in every direction and way possible.
The Running Man was everywhere in the 1990's, and we do mean everywhere. From Will Smith to random kids on the street trying to look cool, the move was popularized by the likes of MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice.
If you're willing to work hard and practice even harder, then you'll be able to acquire the most impressive and recognizable dance move in modern times. What dance move are we talking about? The moon walk, of course.
You may not know it, but one of the silliest dance moves you've probably seen out around town actually has a name. It's called the Roger Rabbit, and done with style and as part of a good dance routine it can be cool. Watch this video to learn how it works.
Shimmies can be done really for any occasion, not just on the dance floor. Some people shimmy when they're happy and others handle it on the dance floor to playfuully tease a dance partner.
You don't need to have superhero upper body strength or even a couple of dance classes under your name to freestyle at a club with ease. Barring break dancing, which could, you know, snap your neck in half, we'd like to present you a simple and impressive clubbing dance move.
