Serena Williams is here to teach you how to twerk

Tennis super star Serena Williams gives a lesson in twerking. 

Tennis super star Serena Williams may be about to make history at the Olympic Games in the Rio, but first, she's on a mission to teach the Internet how to twerk. That's right, folks. One of tennis' most decorated athletes isn't above participating in everyone's favorite dance club move. 

Serena has tackled serious topics like body image, gender and racism in the past, but reminds us that she certainly has a silly side with this short lesson on the basics of booty shaking. Because, let's face it, "everyone, at some point, should do a twerk." 


The Wimbledon 2016 winner opens up to SELF in a new cover feature, discussing everything from how hard it is to stay number one to her friendship with fellow SI Swimsuit star Caroline Wozniacki


“I am who I am. I love who I am,” Serena said. “Just that whole attitude of being strong and powerful—that’s something I can get behind.” 

Read the full feature online now or when the September 2016 issue of SELF hits newsstands later this week.
