Twerk specifically originated from the inner-city of New Orleans and was used frequently in New Orleans Bounce music by rappers and DJ hosting block parties in the housing projects.
The word became popular in the 2000s when it was used by Atlanta rapper Lil Jon and The Eastside Boyz. https://youtu.be/IYH7_GzP4Tg
The interest in "twerking" spiked in November 2011 and the dance phenomenon began at parties and strip clubs often associated with mainstream rap music and video production aired by video cable television shows, that featured rap music and R&B music. Popular video-sharing channels such as YouTube amplified interest since the advent of digital social media platforms.
So it was bound to happen sooner or later. A Twerking video recorded in a Florida gym lands a local basketball coach in hot water. https://youtu.be/RcWqxeqNnxk
