Dancing In Hotlanta

Is Atlanta only about throwing them bows? Nah, shawty. They really dance in the A. Here are the top four dances that have come out of the Peach City.

The Yeek

Farnsworth Bentley may have stolen the show in Big Boi's "The Way You Move" video with this dance, but even the Farns will tell you that he isn't doing anything new. This dance is actually old-school ATL; the b-boys and b-girls used to break this down back in the late '80s and early '90s.

The Snap Dance

Nowadays outfits cost way too much to be sweating up. While getting on the dance floor when crunk music is playing may literally lead to you losing your shirt or a shoe, this simplistic dance that was invented to be performed to snap music is something you can do with your grandparents. All they have to do is decide on what to call it. It's also known as the "Rock Wit, Lean Wit," the "Laffy Taffy" and the "Poole Palace."

The A-Town Stomp

Probably the most celebratory dance to ever come out of Hotlanta. It's pure rowdiness, and simple enough for even a hefty dancer like Bone Crusher to get his groove on.

The Bankhead Bounce

This dance was so easy to do when it was hot that people are scared to let it go. Doing this played-out classic on the dance floor now, though, will only show your age, old-timer.
