How do you do the floss dance move?

To do the floss dance move, you swing your hips in the opposite direction to your arms - which are in two fists.

After swinging your arms to one side, keeping them straight, you then move one arm behind your back, and bring it back out in front.

Your hips are swinging from side-to-side with each beat.

You then swing your arms out to the other side and repeat the same moves.

Start slowly, and then increase your speed as you get more confident.

Et voila! Parents, you're officially 'down with the kids'.

Don't worry if you struggle at first. It's harder than it looks, and requires A LOT of coordination.

Who invented the floss dance move?

The floss dance was invented by Insta-famous dancer The Backpack Kid, aka 16-year-old Russell Horning, who has 2 million followers And it's actually been around for quite some time.

The Backpack Kid posted a video of himself doing the dance move on August 18, 2016, and it soon racked up tens of thousands of views.

School kid Russell, from the States, is known for his free-flowing dance moves and deadpan expression.

Several YouTubers followed suit with similar videos.

Then on May 20, 2017, The Backpack Kid stole the show on Saturday Night Live, as he did the dance to a live performance of Katy Perry's song Swish Swish.

He even wore his signature rucksack on stage.

Now everyone's getting involved, with American Football players incorporating the move into their touchdown celebrations, and celebs like Millie Bobbie Brown, star of Netflix original Stranger Things, posting vids of them doing the move.
