how to learn a tiktok dance

some tiktok dances have tutorials online, or you can just find the dance you want to learn and watch the video over and over again until you master it.

but the best way to learn a more complicated dance is to “practice” it first as a “duo” on tiktok.

follow these steps:

  • When you’re in a dance video you want to learn, tap the arrow icon as if you’re going to share it.
  • play “duet”.
  • slow down the video speed and practice along with the original video.
  • Don’t share these outtakes! delete all that nonsense.
  • once you master the dance, create your tiktok using the “sound” for that dance.
  • happy dancing!
