Twerk and fitness together is taking over the globe in the perfect merge. Although it is hugely hyper sexualised by Western media, "Twerk" is a dance belonging to many African cultures with different names and different meanings depending on the culture, so tracing its origins and development has been hard. In some cultures, Twerk is a ceremonial dance of healing, boosting spiritual connections, fertility and celebrating life, performed by women as well as men in some cases. The dance moved from different cultures through slave trades and migrations in Africa thousands of years ago; the term "Twerk" came from the Hip-Hop Bounce movement starting in New Orleans in the 90s. Now there are so many styles varying and mostly seen in Afro Fusion, Dancehall, Strip Club and Exotic dance culture.

The movement comes from a combination of the pelvic floor working with legs muscles going on back and forth, contracting, releasing and squatting in synchronisation in order to isolate the Booty to make it flick, bounce and bubble looking as effortless as possible; it's not as easy as it looks. If it doesn't burn... You're probably doing it wrong. The girls at Not Just A Pretty Face know first hand how hard but how rewarding twerk fitness is and feel empowered when working out!
Being deeply rooted in African culture, there are beautiful community elements that come with being in a space with others that share similarities from the energy harnessed together under the freedom of movement.
