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.)

Watch Ballerinas Take On Their Toughest Moves In Slow Motion

WOAH

There’s a reason people will still pay an arm and a leg to see the ballet in the age of Netflix and the internet – it’s totally mind blowing. The Washington Post enlisted six performers from the Washington Ballet to show us their most difficult dance moves, and then played them back in slow motion. See the whole series here, and prepare to be amazed. Sometimes, in this busy world of deadlines and megapixels and pop stars, it’s kind of cool to just take a moment to appreciate just how much the human body can do.

This High School Kid’s Michael Jackson Dance Is Blowing My Mind

Watch And Be Amazed

When high school junior Brett Nichols performed this Michael Jackson-inspired “Billie Jean” dance routine at Pitman High School’s Talent Rally (the action starts around 1:12 on the video), he probably didn’t expect to become an overnight internet star — but then, how could he not expect to get attention with moves like that!? When a Pitman High alum saw the video posted on the school’s Facebook page, he hightailed the link over to Reddit, where the video launched into an internet obsession, and I am now mildly mesmerized by Nichols’ moonwalking skills. MTV even claims Nichols’ footwork is better than Michael Jackson himself, which sounds a little blasphemous to me, but needless to say, I’ll be watching this on repeat every time I need a smile today. I kind of hope he finds a way to bank on this oddly specific skill after high school — everyone needs a quality MJ impersonator now and then, right? You rock, Brett! [New York Post, MTV]

Here’s Every Famous Hollywood Dance Scene In 5 Minutes

We Can Dance If We Want To!

I love Hollywood dance scenes. Who couldn’t? The final moments of “Dirty Dancing” reduce me to a blubbering mess, and John Travolta’s moves in “Saturday Night Fever” absolutely slay me. One YouTube user did us the favor of combing through cinema’s most famous dance numbers and editing them into one epic montage. The clips are paired with some quality 80′s dance pop and guaranteed to make you want to jump out of your chair and dance your way out of your winter slump.[Purple Clover]

This Burlesque Performance Says “No More” To Negative Body Image

You're Gonna Hear Me Roar!

New York city performer Amanda Trusty is no stranger to the scrutiny the entertainment industry feels entitled to when it comes to women’s bodies. In a (semi-NSFW) burlesque performance at a benefit for Hawaii Island Gay Pride, Amanda refuses to take that criticism any longer. Set to Katy Perry’s “Roar,” she finds a way to let it all go as she literally peels off hurtful words like “cellulite,” “fat” and “suck it in” that have gotten in the way of the joy performing should bring. I have never felt more empowered (and misty-eyed) just by watching someone dance! Read more thoughts from this amazing lady on her blog. Keep being awesome, Amanda!

Soul Stepper Arin Lawrence Talks That Awesome Rick Owens Fashion Show She Performed In

Rick Owens step dance runway show

We were far from the only ones to be seriously stunned by Rick Owens’ above-and-beyond runway step show — it’s being called “one of the most innovative and exciting fashion shows” of recent recall. New York-based singer-songwriter Arin Lawrence, who performed as part of The Soul Steppers (just one of four groups featured in Owens’ show), regaled her story of the show, from its very germination last spring until last week’s ground-breaking performance, in an exclusive interview with BuzzFeed.

When The Music Moves You Deep In Your Soul...

Listen, I have been to a Willie Nelson concert before and I only wished I had the balls to dance like this guy. Like all the other concertgoers in the video, I was too much of a coward to express my pure joy. Some may call this man’s form of dance “drug-induced movement.” I call it “when the music moves you deep in your soul.” [Videogum]

Can New York Set A Record For The Most People Twerking At Once?

New Orleans “Bounce Queen” Big Freedia is taking to New York City’s Herald Square in an attempt to set the Guinness World Record for most people twerking simultaneously. Big Freedia’s goal is 250 twerkers (just typing “twerker” makes our spell check want to explode), though any relatively large number will suffice as, surprisingly, this record has not yet been recorded by Guinness.
