Williams told reporters: “It was just me. I love to dance. I didn’t know what else to do. I was so happy, and next thing I know I started dancing and moving. I didn’t plan it. It just happened.”

“There is a name. But I don’t know if I – it’s inappropriate,” she said. “It’s just a dance we do in California.”

Is it a big deal?
