3. Pon Di River

Done by leaning back, then kicking your foot forward while bringing the opposite hand in (As the host of How Fi Dance Reggae puts it, “It’s sort of like what the Rockettes do in a chorus line, except you don’t kick up your foot all the way”), this dance is generally followed in sequence by Down Di Flank (Hop on one foot, skip side to side, propelling yourself with your arms and/or waist) and Give Dem A Run (A four-step running motion).
