Sherrie Silver, the choreographer for Childish Gambino‘s “This Is America” video, releases a tutorial of the dance moves that were performed in the song’s visual. She shares step-by-step instructions after the music video reached 100 million YouTube views (now over 120 million views as of press time).

In a recent interview with Glamour, Silver, who’s from Rwanda, shares that Glover’s team contacted her after spotting one of her videos online. Glover’s team was especially interested in her work with children.

“I basically wanted to bring my authentic style from different parts of Africa—not just my country—because I felt that it was very important to represent a lot of the continent,” she said. “With the song being called ‘This is America,’ I wanted to make sure that there were some American references as well. That’s why you got dances in there like the Shoot and the Reverse and the Nene. And, obviously, Donald added his own style of movement.”

Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” is currently the No. 1 song in the country.

Watch the tutorial above.
