How to Learn to Dance the My Dougie

Two Parts:

The Dougieis a fresh new dance that originated from the song titled "My Dougie" by Lil' Will and got even bigger with Cali Swag District's related hit. It refers to rapper Doug E. Fresh and while there are many variations of the Dougie, you can do it almost however you want. Smoove, of Cali Swag District, said, “Everybody does it different…The way you do it defines you.”


Mastering the Basics

  1. Start by putting on a song with a good beat.Ideally "My Dougie" by Lil' Will or "Teach Me How to Dougie" by Cali Swag District should be on. But you can technically do the Dougie to any song with a good hip hop beat.
  2. Start with the side-to-side move.Begin swaying back and forth, starting with the right. Pause for a beat while putting your weight on the foot on the side you're leaning, thinkingright step out, left tap.Then sway to the left and repeat.You can do it to the beat, or double-time every third beat.
    • Put your own rhythm into it so it feels comfortable. Keep your knees loose and remember,right step out, left tap. Left side out, right tap.
      • Don't bring the "tap" all the way in; it's just a light touch on the floor.
  3. Sway right, left, right, right.Follow it up with left, right, left, left. This is the same move, only you're swaying the same side twice after you've swayed both right and left (or left and right). Think, "one and two and double this side." The start of each section should begin on the 1 and 5 --rightand 2 and 3 and 4 andleftand 6 and 7 and 8.
    • Start feeling it in your arms. That's the next step! Get your shoulders into the groove, release your knees, and relax your hips. The style comes all from you.
    • Step out on the whole counts -- 1, 2, 3, and 4. Tap on the "and" beats, so it's 1tap2tap3tap4.
  4. Add some arms once you feel you have the style down.As you're doing the side-to-side movement, bring your hand (on the side you're swaying to) towards you in a fist in a counter-clockwise circle motion, until your arm is bent with your elbow facing down and your first up by your head. Do this move with the sway of the same side and then again with the opposite arm. Don't overcomplicate it!
    • This arm-movement is the most popular Dougie arm move, but some other versions include arm-pops, rolls, etc. Whatever works for you, include in your Dougie. We'll cover some variations next.
    • Try "driving your car." With the side you're swaying on, grab the steering wheel and sway your arm back and forth. Then bring it in to incorporate other moves.

Adding Flair

  1. Try the "Cat-Daddy," another popular Dougie move.Punch down by your hip with the arm of the opposite side (e.g. right hip, left arm). This is similar to the arm movement just discussed, only on a slightly lower level. Bring your hips and knees down with your arms, too, lowering your entire body.
  2. Try the "Wheelchair" move.With both your arms, make forward circles to your sides like you're pushing yourself in a wheelchair (you probably saw that one coming). At the same time, start crouching lower with each rotation, either with your knees going forward or to the sides (like the chicken-wing move with your legs!). Vary this one up with the moves already discussed as the music progresses.
  3. Now do the Dougie "Fresh!" This move is signature for all styles of Dougie. Bring your hand over the top of your head and slide it off the back, like you're slicking your hair down. Greasing the mullet, if you will. Do this with the side-to-side move, shifting your shoulders side to side, then do it with the other hand. Vary your levels with this move too.
  4. Don't forget to be loose with your knees.Otherwise you're going to look very stiff! That is not how you want the dance to look -- it's all about feeling the beat and flowing with the motion of the music. It helps to shake around and let your arms and legs feel free before dancing, just to get in the groove. Add your own personal flair to the dance as well. Basically, just have fun!

    This is probably my favorite dance. There are a lot of tutorials on how to do it, but basically just take side steps while swinging your arms back and forth and snapping.

Quick Summary

To dance the Dougie, start by swaying side-to-side while tapping your feet to the beat. Then, make fists with your hands and bring them up toward you so they're moving in a counterclockwise circular motion. Keep doing this until your fists are at your head and then repeat. Alternate which hand you're lifting up so that you're using your hand that's on the same side as the foot you're tapping with at that moment.

Did this summary help you?
  • This Dance works for most rap and hip hop songs that have a good beat.
  • Don't be afraid to get into it. This is true with any dance! If you watch yourself do it in a mirror it might help, but once you feel comfortable with it then you're probably doing it right.
