Twerking is a dance. The dancer (usually a female) shakes her buttocks in a sexually provocative manner while in a low squatting posture.[1] Oxford Dictionaries defines 'twerking' as a verb: "dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance".[2] Twerking drew a lot of attention in the United States when Miley Cyrus did a twerking dance on nationwide television during the MTV Video Music Awards program in August 2013.
