The Macarena dance is performed in time with the refrain of the song. To perform the dance:
One places his/her arms forward, palm down, right arm, then left arm.
Then the dancer turns his arms over so that his palms are up, right, then left.
The dancer puts his hands on his shoulders, first right hand on left shoulder, then left on right.
Then the dancer puts his hands on the back of his head, again right, then left.
The dancer then places his arms on his hips, right hand on left hip, then left on right
Then the dancer's hands go on their respective hips (or pelvis), right then left.
The routine finishes with a pelvic rotation in time with the line "Ehhhh Macarena!"
Then the dancer turns 90 degrees counter clockwise and repeats the same motions throughout the whole song.
