Who are these e-courses made for?
Anybody (and any body) who wants to learn to twerk, and answers at least one 'yes':
- Not sure how or where to start, or feeling overwhelmed
- Prefers a "how-to" guide, to help break down the moves
- Feels more comfortable learning alone
- Doesn't have a class nearby or at a convenient time
- Wants to dance freely and feel comfortable in their body, alone / in public
- Looking for a safe space to connect with their sensual side, without judgement
"I almost never dance next to other people, I'm always too self-conscious. It took me a long time to enroll in this course, because of that inner voice telling me I can't, or that it won't look good. BUT! I'm already practicing lesson 4 🤸♀️, and I can't remember the last time I had this much fun dancing! Thank you so much 💗"

Hi! I'm Gal, a bubbly Israeli woman who moved to Miami at the age of 24. There, I learned about a dance style that wasn't known back home in Israel: twerking. For me, it was the first time I saw a woman dancing with complete body freedom and zero inhibitions. I remember thinking 3 things:
Their body control was amazing;
Their confidence was inspiring;
And mostly- I didn't know we were "allowed" to dance like that! I never got the memo, until now!
I immediately looked for classes that teach this style, but there weren't that many, at the time. I attended some booty-popping classes in my local pole dance studio, taught by an African American teacher, and worked on breaking down the techniques and practicing, at home in front of the mirror.
I returned to Israel and started teaching this dance style (I already had experience teaching Salsa and Pole Dance). After 3 years of teaching twerk part-time in Israel and abroad, in I quit my day-time job and started my own full-time business. I've taught workshops and teacher trainings in over 13 countries including Australia, Europe, Israel and the States, designed and manufactured my own clothing line, ran regular twerk courses for over 4 years in Israel, starred in a documentary film, and appeared on national TV and international web shows multiple times.
Now, I'm excited to share with you my online courses- the product of teaching more than 1200 students, over 80 teachers, and engaging in so many meaningful interactions with individuals across genders, ethnicities and racial identities, sharing the impact of this beautiful dance has had on their life. I hope you enjoy.
Fun Facts: apart from twerking, I'm into science and business (and baking, and crafting, and spirituality). I hold a B.Sc in Biotechnology and an M.Sc in Microbiology and Genetics, and am currently studying at NYU for my MBA.

But wait! What is twerking? Where does it come from?
Twerking is a dance that is deeply rooted in African culture. While the current and most commonly known form of twerking originated in the Bounce culture in New Orleans in the early 1990’s, the roots of twerking can be found in West Africa. A dance called Mapouka, from the Ivory Coast (Côte d’Ivoire) is considered to be the ancestor of modern twerking, although there are many more dances with significant similarities in other African countries such as Senegal, Nigeria and Kenya.
Similar dance styles can also be found in the African and the Afro-Latin diaspora: Dancehall is a Jamaican street dance where the women dance Female Dancehall, a feminine style of dancing. In Puerto Rico, Perreo or Sandungueo emerged in the late 1980’s as a party/club dance. Similar dance moves are danced to Soca music in the West Indies, as well.
While twerking has been around for at least 20 years prior to this event, the rise of twerking to the mainstream (white) media happened in 2013, when Miley Cyrus tried to twerk on stage at the MTV VMA awards.
As a Jewish Israeli woman, who learned twerking from African-American and Hispanic teachers, I try my best to educate myself and my students about the rich history of twerking.
I encourage you to learn more about the different styles of twerking by following these amazing dancers. Each one dances a different style of twerking, representing a different region or African / Afro-Latin diaspora.
