The Running Man is a simple hip hop dance move that came from the streets in late 1986 and early 1987. Janet Jackson performed the running man in the video of her hit song “rhythm nation”. I am going to explain how to do this dance.
You start with your left foot up and your right foot on the ground.
You do a small hop that lets you slide your opposite foot backwards. At the same time your left foot plants on the ground.
There are different ways to move your upper body. The basic way is pumping your hands back and forth as you are sliding your feet. Your arms move out and you pull them back in. You keep repeating this until you are finished your running man.
I hope this explanation helped you to learn the steps of the running man.
