Example of Twerk/Twerking in a sentence: “The girls at the parties were twerking to that new song! It was crazy!”
In recent years, a trend and type of dance has developed where girls, typically younger, dance to music in a sexually provocative manner. Twerking is often done to loud rap or hip-hop music, usually at parties or with large groups of people. ‘Twerk Team’ may refer to this group, or just to a group of women twerking next to each other. Twerk videos have become very popular on social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and on video sharing sites like YouTube or World Star Hip Hop. Many people upload videos of themselves twerking as a joke because they may find it to be funny or ridiculous. People often twerk with their feet on a wall and their hands on the floor.
