Twerking to Classical Music: Booty Shaking Meets William Tell Overture

by at .  Updated at . Comments

With all due respect to Miley Cyrus Twerking, classical music has been unjustly overlooked during the ascension of this suggestive new dance craze.

Typically associated with hip hop, Twerking is interpreted through a radically different genre below in an experiment designed to legitimize the art.

"Twerking to Classical," an ongoing Huffington Post series, blends web videos of twerking with the more accepted artistic mores of classical music.

The result? Nothing short of paradigm breaking.

The first installment, "Twerking to Classical," explores the dynamic between Aram Khachaturian’s Suserov Par (Saber Dance) and a series of female twerkers.

The sequel, from "Men at Twerk," combines some of the most acclaimed male Twerkers with Gioachino Rossini’s smash hit William Tell Overture.

When it comes to these guys and girls contorting, gyrating and parting like it's 1699, we can’t stop ... and we're guessing you won't be able to either.
