Elderly People Dancing To “Turn Down For What” Will Get You Through Tuesday

Elderly People Dancing To "Turn Down For What" Will Get You Through Tuesday
"Fire Up Loud, Another Round Of Shots!"

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: I love old people. Old people and babies are my weaknesses. So imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon Tastefully Offensive‘s video called “Senior Citizens Dancing to ‘Turn Down For What.’” Just as you’d imagine, the video is a compilation of dozens of old people getting down with their bad selves, all to the sweet musical dewdrops of Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What.” If this doesn’t get you through your Tuesday, I don’t know what will.

Also, to see one crunk elderly man that I recently witnessed bustin’ a move on the dance floor, check out my Instagram video after the jump and pray that one day you’ll be as cool as this guy. Keep reading »

The Men In Heels Who Slayed Beyoncé’s Choreography Are Back To Make Us Feel Uncoordinated Again

The Men In Heels Who Slayed Beyonce Choreography Are Back To Make Us Feel Uncoordinated
Life Is Unfair

Remember the three dudes in stilettos who perfectly mastered Beyoncé’s choreography earlier this year, thus making all of us feel like the most uncoordinated dancers in the world? Well, they’re back to remind us what that feels like.

Yanis Marshall and his high-heeled partners, Arnaud Boursain and Mehdi Mamine, have decided to induce us all with a big dose of nostalgia and show off their moves, this time to The Pussycat Dolls’ 2005 hit “Buttons.” The video starts off with the whole dance studio jamming to the song before focusing on the trio’s freakishly good moves that even the best, most expensive strippers would envy.

This Dance & Spoken Word Performance Takes Down Bullying

Dance
"I Practice Being Resilient"

These ultra-talented kids from the non-profit group MusEffect collaborated with poet Azure Antoinette to put together a choreographed performance about cyberbullying. October is National Bullying Prevention Month, so there was no better time for the team to encourage a dialogue. What starts as a dull classroom morphs into a gorgeous, haunting routine that sticks in your mind for the rest of your day and gets us all thinking about young people face when they’re up against bullies.

The First Same-Sex “So You Think You Can Dance” Routine Was Worth The Wait

The First Same-Sex "So You Think You Can Dance" Routine Was Worth The Wait
Travis Wall's Choreography Is Flawless As Usual

“So You Think You Can Dance” has long been one of the few truly inspiring, talent-filled, positive reality TV shows, but it’s not perfect. Up until last night’s episode, the show had never shown a dance routine focused on same-sex relationships, featuring same-sex dance partners. But man, while it took the show 11 years, it was worth the wait. Travis Wall (the runner-up in season two), himself a gay man, choreographed a moving routine about the fight for marriage equality, featuring two men and two women who first dance in pairs and then as a foursome. What an important moment for an already wonderful show. [Buzzfeed]

7 Reasons Why You Should Be Watching "So You Think You Can Dance"

Of all people in the world, my jock-y, mainstream, but also book-nerd boyfriend was the person who got me into watching “So You Think You Can Dance”. When I told him I hadn’t seen it, he scoff-laughed and said, “You’re gonna watch it,” then proceeded to wax poetic about the show and how he wishes he could animate. I thought I was just going to be humoring him, but after spending the entire first episode of season 10 going “DAAAAAMN” at the dancers’ auditions, I was hooked.

And it turned out he was right to be as enthusiastic as he is — there are a million reasons to love it. Here are some of the best. Keep reading »

Stop What You’re Doing & Watch These Grown Men In Stilettos Slay Beyoncé’s Choreography

Stop What You're Doing And Watch 3 Grown Men In Stilettos Slay Beyonce Choreography
Prepare To Feel Incredibly Uncoordinated

Holy crapballs, you guys. Up until this very moment, I thought of myself as a semi-coordinated twentysomething with fairly decent, pseudo-sexy dance skills. Then I saw this video, and everything I thought I knew was shattered.

In preparation for the final live show on “Britain’s Got Talent,” the three most freakishly coordinated people on the planet men in the video above completely slayed the dance floor to a medley of Beyoncé songs during their last rehearsal. Yanis Marshall Choreography was kind enough to rub their talent in our faces by giving us a sneak peek of their routine and showing us how much better they can dance in heels than us. Check it out and come to terms with the fact that you will never EVER dance like this. (I, personally, find some comfort in the fact that the guy on the left is, like, a half-count behind.)
