Twerking was made popular by singer Miley Cyrus in 2013.

It is a type of dancing in which an individual, usually a female, dances to music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low squatting stance.

Twerking was a runner-up in the Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year in 2013.
