“Glee” cheerleader Heather Morris is not shy about her body – and why should she be? Her dancing is one of the highlights of an already-uber-talented cast. So much so that even Esquire took notice, admitting they don’t watch “Glee,” but that Morris is awesome.

The mag is using Heather for a Top 50 Songs of 2011 piece in the May issue. So in addition to Heather shaking her money-maker to the tunes of The Strokes, Raphael Saadiq and Deadmau5, she also offers a few pointers to guys who want to look cool dancing:

  • The simplest way to do something cool is the cross-turn. Like in the ’80s — Michael Jackson did it. You jump and cross your legs together at the same time, and then spin out of it. That’s it.
  • You don’t want to be too cool. But you don’t want to be too dorky. Still, I find it so much better to see a guy at a club being a dork, and having fun, than trying to be sexy.
  • I can’t stand it when someone comes up behind a girl and grabs her hips and tries to grind with her. It’s offensive. Why would you do that to me?
  • The secret to moonwalking: You have to have slick shoes, or else your feet would get stuck. And you trick people. Your right foot pops, and you’re pushing your left foot back, and once your left foot lands, you do the same thing. It just looks like you’re gliding on air.

Heather also did a fun music-themed photoshoot, some of which are below. Smokin’, girlfriend.
