Dance

The dance for "Hoedown Throwdown" is heavily influenced by line dancing and merges some hip-hop. A video starring Cyrus and Hannah Montana: The Movie's choreographer Jamal Simms entitled "How to Do the Hoedown Throwdown", premiered on Disney Channel on February 20, 2009. The video features Cyrus and Simms, accompanied by several back-up dancers, in a pink room and sporting workout attire. Throughout the evening, Cyrus and Simms executed and explained each dance move. At the end of the night, Cyrus and Simms put together all of the dance steps at once into a competition entitled "Hoedown Throwdown Showdown". Cyrus explained the dance required "semi-coordinat[ion]". Ann Donahue of Billboard said that she discovered "exactly how Cyrus' legion of preteen female fans is learning the dance: YouTube onscreen, phone to ear, someone on phone offering encouragement amid occasional peals of laughter." She also drew similarities to Billy Ray Cyrus' choreography for "Achy Breaky Heart". Reported by MTV News, the "Hoedown Throwdown," caused a sizable younger audience "jumping on the country bandwagon".

Boom clap
Boom de clap de clap
Boom-boom clap
Boom de clap de clap
Boom-boom clap
Boom de clap de clap
Boom-boom clap
Boom de clap de clap

Try it with me, here we go.
Boom-boom clap
Boom de clap de clap
That's right
Boom de clap de clap
Boom-boom clap
Boom de clap de clap

1-2-3 everybody come on off your seats,
I'm gonna tell you bout a beat,
That's gonna make you move your feet.

I'll give the barbecue,
Show and tell you how to move,
If you're 5 or 82,
This is something you can do.

Pop it, lock it, polka-dot it
Countrify it then hip-hop it.
Put your hawk in the sky,
And move side-to-side.
Jump to the left, stick it, glide.

Zig-zag, across the floor
Shuffle in diagonal,
When the drum hits, hands on your hips.
One-footed 180 twist.
Then a zig-zag, step slide
Lean it left, clap 3 times
Shake it out, head to toe
Throw it all together, that's how we roll.

Do the hoedown (throwdown) [3x]

Throw it all together, that's how we roll.

We get to 4, 5, 6
And you're feeling busted,
But it's not time to quit,
Practice makes you perfect.

Pop it, lock it, polka-dot it
Countrify it then hip-hop it.
Put your hawk in the sky,
And move it side-to-side.
Jump to the left, stick it, glide.

Zig-zag, cross the floor
Shuffle in diagonal,
When the drum hits,
Hands on your hips.
One-footed 180 twist.
Then a zig-zag, step slide
Lean it left, clap 3 times
Shake it out, head to toe
Throw it all together, that's how we roll.

Do the hoedown (throwdown) [3x]

Throw it all together, that's how we roll.

Boom de clap de clap,
Boom-boom clap.
Come on, here we go.
Boom-Boom clap,
Boom de clap de clap.
Boom-Boom clap,
Boom de clap.

Pop it, lock it, polka-dot it
Countrify it then hip-hop it.
Put your hawk in the sky,
And move it side-to-side.
Jump to the left, stick it, glide.

Zig-zag, across the floor
Shuffle in diagonal,
When the drum hits, hands on your hips.
One-footed 180 twist.

Then a zig-zag, step slide
Lean it left, clap 3 times
Shake it out, head to toe
Throw it all together, that's how we roll.

Do the hoedown (throwdown) [3x]

Throw it all together, that's how we roll.

Do the hoedown (throwdown) [3x]

Throw it all together, that's how we roll.

Boom dap clap, ba-boom dap clap, clap, clap
Boom dap clap, ba-boom da clap, clap, clap
Boom da clap, boom de clap de clap
Throw it all together, that's how we roll.
