Ciara just embarked on her first tour in six years to promote her new album Jackie, but don’t think the “I Bet” singer has gotten rusty with the choreography. Whether it’s the floor hump from “Ride” or her The Matrix-style back bend from “Like a Boy,” she’s still breaking out her best-known routines on the road.

“Sometimes you get bored of the same moves, but you know that there are those moves that those fans love,” she tells TIME. “And you better not change those moves or you might create a little confusion! It’s those key moments that people remember because they mark the special creative moments you shared. It’s only right that you give them that thing they’ve loved from the beginning of the song or era.”

So when TIME sat down with Ciara to talk about how motherhood influenced her new record, it was only right that we asked her to walk fans through some of her most memorable moves and dance videos as well. See her reflect on “Gimmie Dat,” “Promise,” “Work,” “1, 2 Step” and more in the video above.
