With all the news surrounding the weird dance that Miley Cyrus was doing during the MTV VMAs, Brendan Spaar has to ask the question that is on everyone's mind: What is twerking?? Apparently ABC News found a Phd Professor of exercise (I guess you really can get a graduate degree in football) Michelle Olson who explained that twerking is "a combination movement involving a deep squat and a pelvic tilt." The good doctor did caution against over-twerking saying that it "might throw out the lower back or make the knees creak." One thing that this article does not explain is where the dance came from. The dance actually originated in New Orleans Louisiana back in 1993, before Miley was even born!
