Mass twerk: Lexi claims she has taught more than 10,000 women how to master the butt-shaking moves

The energetic 26-year-old has taught more than 10,000 women how to shake their booties and is hoping her patented TwerkOut routine will become a worldwide smash.

Lexy already attracts big names to her LA classes including popstars Christina Milian and former Spice Girl Mel B - who Lexy claims has “the world’s best tush.”

She is now on her way to making her first million and has already purchased her dream car - a Mercedes Benz - but claims she is too busy shaking her butt to find love.

She said: “I would really like to meet a nice guy but I’ve got to travel across the country, often for weeks at a time to teach people to twerk and get fit.

“I don’t think anything will change in the near future, my TwerkOut brand is getting bigger and taking up more of my time.

“Once things have settled down maybe TwerkOut can look after itself and I can find a nice husband - that's what I'd really like."

Lexy says her TwerkOut class is available for women of all shapes and sizes and helps to make them feel sexy.

"I'd love to teach the world to twerk because, whether they admit it or not, all women want to twerk," she added.

"It's an incredibly sexy thing to do and it's my mission to take women out of their comfort zone and get them twerking.

“I have women coming to me saying they were nervous at first but now their sex life has improved dramatically after taking the class.

“And nobody is too big to twerk.

“Some people may be a little intimidated at first as it's really out there but once they start they can’t stop – twerking is addictive.”

Lexy was a dance teacher in a middle school when the idea to twerk for a living came to her.

Lexy added: “I really can’t say where the idea came from to teach the world to twerk but I knew it was going to be big.

“You can burn 1,200 calories in an hour and it’s a full body workout – I knew it would catch on.”

And despite receiving criticism for her raunchy moves online, Lexy's controversial career has the full support of her father Tony Panterra.

Tony said: "I think it's fantastic that she's building a brand through twerking.

"Some people may say that it's too sexual but this is just the latest in a long line of things that are looked down on at first but then accepted.

"People used to say Zumba was too provocative and now it's a worldwide brand - which is exactly what will happen with TwerkOut.

"I would like to try it myself but I've got a lot of injuries from motorcycle riding so I struggle to walk in a straight line let alone twerk.

"I'll leave the twerking to Lexy."

“He loves what I do and supports me completely,” added Lexy.

“He just sees it as dancing, of course it’s sexy but I’m making a good life for myself from twerking – I want TwerkOut to become a worldwide brand.

Single: despite her business success, Lexy says she is too busy to find a boyfriend…
…but she would like to find a husband and settle down in the future

“How could my father argue with that?”
