Definitely Try This At Home

The dance Ally and Kane are attempting to perform is known as the “Kid and Play” created by Hip Hop comedy duo Kid and Play and featured in their hit film House Party. I don’t actually know if that’s the dance, but that’s what I always called it. And technically, it’s not really an 80′s thing, but House Party dropped in 1990 so it’s close enough.

The trick is the leg hook. Done properly, it’s pretty damn sweet and guaranteed to get some cheers on the dance floor. Done poorly, well, we’ll see what happens.

    Oh man, that’s such a flashback.. I had no idea it was popular in the 80′s only, because me and my friends were doing it during some small parties back when I was in highschool like, what, 7 years ago? Some things never die ;D
