We bet your thinking what we thought when we first heard about the Dab, erh what is it? Dabbing pretty much consists of one key move; you basically mimic the action of dabbing your nose with your sleeve. Yes, you heard us right, like when you have no tissue and the only available alternative is your arm. We were sold when we saw the instagram video of RiRi Dabbing whilst cooking, brilliant! But if your still stuck on how to do the Dab, have a look at this cool video below. It’s actually quite easy to do too; we’ve been practising LOL.

The dance craze originates from Atlanta but only really took off when rappers Drake and Future performed their mixtape What a Time to be Alive. Whilst doing the Dab on stage whilst performing the song, and we all know how we all love any dance moves Drake does.
