Here at Large Up, we wanted to make sure that you hit the New Year’s Eve Bashment parties in style. So we got up with our good friend Korie Genius, of New York based dance crew Blackgold, to find out about the best and most popular dances of 2011. After some heated discussion, we chose what we think were the 10 most influential moves of the year, and linked with Korie outside the colorful Mollusk Surf Shop in Brooklyn. Watch the video below for a quick demonstration of each, then read the breakdown of each step below. We hope to send you into the New Year with an updated arsenal of party dances—and make sure to check back here in 2012 to keep them fresh.
