So You Know You Can’t Dance: Watch Kiesza Teach 'Hideaway' Routine In Debut Episode

I don’t know how to dance — but I’m ready to learn. Watch Kiesza show me some of her “Hideaway” moves.

I write about pop music for, listen to a lot of pop music, and often dance to the pop music I'm listening to. The only problem? I'm a terrible dancer. Well, not terrible as much as awkward -- I flail my arms around and don't really know how to move my body in any sensible way. I want to learn how to dance like a pro... and I want to bring all the other uncoordinated guys and girls out there along for the ride.

That's why we at are launching So You Know You Can't Dance, a new web series in which music's biggest stars teach me, a clumsy white guy, some choreography. Watch the first episode, in which Kiesza demonstrates a few moves from her "Hideaway" music video, below:

Kiesza's "Hideaway" became a Hot 100 hit as its one-take dance music video earned hundreds of millions of YouTube views. The Canadian electro-pop star has collaborated with Skrillex, Diplo and Joey Bada$$… but can she teach the "Hideaway" choreography to a gawky journalist?
