The Worm, sometimes referred to as the dolphin or the caterpillar is a dance motion often associated with breakdancing and "funk" subculture in which a subject lies Prone position and forms a rippling motion through their body, creating a wave reminiscent of a worm crawling. This can be done either forward or backwards, by shifting weight from the upper body to the lower body (backwards) or vice-versa for forwards. The worm was performed at some punk rock shows in the 1970s, was popularized widely during the 1980s "funk" period, and continues to be associated with breakdancing.

The move has been used and popularized by WWE wrestler "Scotty 2 Hotty" as his finisher maneuver.
