Sherrie Silver Breaks Down Key Moves From 'This Is America' In This New Tutorial

Time to get our practice on.

Sherrie Silver has graced us with a tutorial breaking down key dance moves from Childish Gambino's music video, "This Is America."

The Rwandan-British choreographer put together a two-part primer to commemorate the video reaching 100 million views. In the first video, she teaches popular African dance moves like South Africa's gwara gwara, the neza and more, with the help of the amazing kid dance group, Dem 3.

After we master these moves, Silver will then teach us some of the choreography in the video—and we can't wait.

Revisit Silver's reflection on her involvement with the project here, and watch part one of the tutorial below.
