This infographic provides a twerking how to guide in four steps. From the New York Times, this instructional image explains the correct way to perform the dance move popularized in pop culture.

The twerking how to begins with a wide stance and gives tips for "New Orleans authenticity" and includes multiple Miley references.

Whether you genuinely want to learn how to perform this move, or you're still obsessing over Miley three days later, this infographic is a must see. Stats for Celeb-Inspired Twerking Guides Trending: Older & Mild
