    Take a long breath, and gather your energy. Start enjoying the beat, and slowly make yourself ready. Wait for the vocal-track portion to begin.

    You need to start with one repetition of the dance to the right. For this, count 1, 2, 3, 4 to the beat, and make a move at each moment.

    The first shift is stepping to the right with the right foot. Now, step into the same direction, but with the left foot. Make sure you are crossing the left foot to the right one. Now uncross your feet by stepping right with the right foot.

    There is no need to put all your body weight on one foot. You need to use the ‘tapping technique’ which means your feet are just kissing the surface.

    After one repetition to the right, repeat this step, but in the reverse direction. In this situation, your moves will be: stepping left with the left foot, stepping left with the right foot, and stepping left with your left foot. Close your feet, and tap your right foot next to the left one.

    Now, do one repetition of dance steps backward. Three moves include: stepping back with the right foot, stepping back with the left foot, and stepping back with the right foot. Again do the tapping with the left foot, making sure your body weight does not transfer entirely.

    After making the moves backward, it is the time to do dance steps forward. While counting 1, 2, 3, 4 to the beat, step forward with the left foot, before stepping back with the right foot. The third crucial move in this step is tapping your left foot in front of the right foot.

    To finish the electric slide, do one repetition to the left. First of all, step forward and turn left. While counting 1, 2 to the beat, step forward with the left foot, but at the same time prepare to turn left. To give a special effect to your performance, hop on your left foot as you turn left.
