Picture of How to moonwalk:
The moonwalk is a breakdancing move, that became very popular after Michael Jackson performed it in 1983 in a TV show.
A moonwalk is when you walk one way but you move the other way. It looks like a secret force pulls you back.
The backwards ( back slide ) moonwalk is the most popular and the easiest moonwalk variation.
Michael Jackson was not the first person to do this technique. Before him, James Brown popularized it and the moonwalk was also seen in France in the early fifties. ( known as pantomimic walking exercise ).


Technical description: Moonwalk

  • Start the moonwalk with both legs together.
  • Lift the left heel and stand on the ball of your foot. ( all the weight is on the left leg )
  • Slide back the right foot on the whole foot sole.
  • Then stop the right foot and lift its heel, while you start sliding back the left foot.
  • Keep going.

Trainer advice: Moonwalk

  • With sock it is easier to learn the moonwalk, becasue sticky shoes make it more difficult to slide back one foot smoothly.
  • Try the moonwalk without any arm movements at the beginning.

This project looks awesome but there isn't enough documentation of you actually making it to be a full Instructable. There are two things which you could do. 1) If you happen to have images of you making your project you can create some more steps, add those additional photos into your Instructable and then republish your Instructable. 2) If you don't have any more pictures of you working on your project, that's ok too. That just means that your project is better suited to be submitted as a slideshow. Your images are already in your library, and you can use the same text that you have already written for your Instructable so it should only take a few minutes to create your slideshow and show the world what you made! Thanks for your submission and let me know if you have any questions along the way.

Hello, and welcome to the Instructables community! It's great that you've decided to tell the world about something you've made by publishing an Instructable. We just wanted to let you know that your project still needs a little more work if you want it to be well received on Instructables. Projects that don't include certain basic elements tend not to get the attention that they deserve, and so we'd love for you to check out the list below of what makes a successful Instructable. Successful projects on Instructables include: - clearly written details of a finished project with instruction - as many steps as are necessary to explain your project - clear images that you took of your project for most, if not all of your steps - an intro image - proper spelling and grammar - appropriate cautions or safety considerations I'll give you another opportunity to make any final changes to your project before we publish it. Once you're all set to go, please republish your project and send me a quick comment letting me know that you've made some changes. I'll give it a quick final check to make sure you're on the right path, and then remove this note. Thanks for your submission and we hope to see your project published soon!
