Jerk, or Jerkin', is a dance movement that originated in Los Angeles. Dancers wear skinny jeans and brightly colored clothes. The jerk is a dance move in which dancers move their legs in and out.

Internet videos have helped popularize the movement.

"Discovering and being discovered is core to our DNA, as is self-expression," MySpace chief revenue officer Nada Stirratt said. "We noticed our audience got involved around this. That's why this is a great project for us."

The MySpace social network is a unit of NewsCorp. (NWS).
