As Regina explained in a June 25 dance tutorial, “The Legwork Moonwalk is an illusion of doing the moonwalk, but you’re doing legwork.”

Legwork is marked by dancers moving their feet quickly in front of them from left, right, left and back to right, left, right. The “moonwalk” involved sliding your feet across the floor, creating the illusion of gliding across the floor.
