So You Know You Can't Dance: Watch Tinashe Teach 'The Whip' in New Episode

I don’t know how to dance — but I’m ready to learn. Watch Tinashe show me how to nail the “Whip” dance to the tune of “2 On.”

Welcome to the latest episode of So You Know You Can't Dance, a new web series in which music biggest stars teach me, the Most Awkward Dancer Alive, some of their moves. My latest choreographer is Tinashe, the 21-year-old rising star behind one of the year's biggest R&B hits ("2 On," featuring ScHoolboy Q) and best albums (Aquarius), who stopped by to teach me one of her favorite new moves, The Whip dance. Watch all of the action -- and follow along with the steps! -- below:

Tinashe describes The Whip dance as a move in which "you're simulating how awesome you look when you're riding in your whip." Sounds easy enough -- but I get pretty intimidated when she adds a spin move to the routine! Am I one of the basics that Tinashe is praying for in the video?
