How-To: Hard Whip

For this week's social media post we had to make a How-To video for YouTube. I decided to make a video showing everyone how I do my signature dance move, the hard whip. To some it may look like your average everyday whip, but that is just not the case. The name implies it's meaning, you do it with much more force and assertiveness. So go on over to my YouTube channel and watch my video, I know you're going to love it! I'll go through the steps on my blog too, just in case you'd like to print out this post and take it around with you so you always have the instructions at hand.

1. Stretch it out

I may or may not have been sore the day after I first tried this move, so I highly recommend stretching before performing this high-intensity dance.

2. Find a song

It's a common misconception that you can only whip to the song "Watch Me" by Silento, but I'm here to bust that myth. All you need is a good beat you can follow and you'll be whipping in no time!

3. Practice makes perfect

The whip is fun, sure, but the hard whip is even better. The key is to do it with more force so the leg you land on is stomping the ground. If you can feel the room shake you're doing it correctly! Go ahead and give it a few tries, it might seem unnecessary at first, but eventually you'll start to feel more comfortable.

4. Jam out

You're finally ready to hard whip! Put on your favorite jam, grab some friends
and start hard whipping! And don't worry about those pesky downstairs neighbors of yours, they'll be joining in soon enough.

Thank you for reading this blog, go check out the corresponding video if you haven't yet! I would love if you tweeted me videos of you trying the hard whip (@sierramckinzy). Have a wonderful day and keep hard whipping!


  1. I don't dance, but, if I did, it would be the hard whip, to be sure. Do you think Mozart would be a good choice of music??? 😜

  2. Critical information that I will definitely need today, the Friday of it all. Hard whipping TGIF !

  3. I am not a very talented dancer. I admire your skill and courage to put this video up!

  4. This is so great Sierra! Your video is hilarious and very informative. I appreciate your good sense of humor and I think I'm a better "whipper" now thanks to you. ("whipper" is definitely not a word haha)
