Word to your grandmother.

This video of a very talented grandma breaking out respectable dance moves to “Ice, Ice Baby” while cooking dinner is your daily reminder of why the internet is great. Her grandson may be in embarrassed, but I am impressed. And the dog seems to be as well. Word to you, grandma. [Daily Picks And Flicks]

Heads Up, Guys: This Is How You Should Dance If You Want To Turn Women On

Sexy Dance Move
Attention, guys. Being a good dancer is all in the neck and the right knee, says a new study done at Northumbria University. Researchers used 3D cameras to film 19 guys between the ages of 18 and 35 dancing. The dudes’ moves were then turned into animated avatars and shown to 35 straight women to rate on a scale of one to 10.

The female participants found men who made big movements with the neck and trunk, the wrist and left shoulder, and fast movements with the right knee, to be the best dancers. Why these particular moves? Well aside from making simply making a man look slick bumping and grinding in the club, scientist say there’s a biological component. The “good” dance moves just so happen to be signals of male fertility. Because we’re all just animals looking to propagate the species. Keep reading »

If you’re like a lot of people, you spent at least part of New Year’s Eve in da clurrrb sweatin’ off that fifth cocktail. Okay, maybe that was just me. Now I need to watch this video intently and figure out which type of dancer I am/steal some of their moves. I’m probably the “clumsy” or the “self molester,” not to be confused with the “hair molester.”  Which one are you? [YouTube via Laughing Squid]

Dust Pans Are The New Glow Sticks!

People love to speculate as to whether or not porn for women exists. I can’t answer definitively, but if it does exist, it features a bunch of scantily-clad cadets doing chores and dancing to techno music. Um, never have I ever seen a man mop the floor by doing the worm. But I’m not mad at it. [Jezebel]

Vermont High School Cancels The Rest Of This Year’s School Dances Because Kids Were Grinding

Stowe High School in Stowe, Vermont, canceled its remaining three school dances this year to punish students for grinding at past dances. The three dances that got the kibosh included a Halloween dance, which was cancelled just days before it was supposed to happen. Prom, fortunately, has not been cancelled. However, Principal Jeff Maher told WCAX news said the school intends to hold conversations with students throughout the year about appropriate behavior at all school dances. “I don’t blame our kids, I really don’t,” Principal Maher said. “I think that they reflect the coarse, vulgar, popular culture that they inhabit.” I’m going to say something farty and old here, but I actually don’t think these actions are terrible. Extreme, maybe, but it will get the students’ attention for those (surely awkward) conversations about social boundaries. This is just a different way of approaching the problem than confronting every single kid who twerks or grinds at the dance itself. It’s anyone’s guess whether it will be successful, though.  They always could have made the students’ sign “no twerking” dance contracts instead. [WCAX via HyperVocal]

This 2-Year-Old Dancing To Beyoncé Is More Coordinated Than You’ll Ever Be

Just The Cutest!

Does Beyoncé need a new backup dancer? Because this little girl and her mom, Tianne King, who live near Atlanta, are available! King is a dance teacher who has taught her moves to her adorable two-year-old daughter. This video of them dancing together to Beyoncé’s “End Of Time” is nothing short of amazing. It’s incredible this little girl can not only remember all those moves but also have the stamina to do them during a nearly-four minute song. [YouTube]

Dancing Queen Bus Stop Lady Lands A Prestigious Theatre Part

Ellie Cole, Eastleigh's Dancing Queen, lands a new theatre gig
Truly The Dancing Queen!

Remember this unidentified lady, who was filmed dancing along to her headphones at a bus stop in the British town of Eastleigh? Well, unidentified no longer: her name is Ellie Cole, she’s a 35-year-old mum, and she wasn’t grooving along to ABBA’s “Dancing Queen” after all! It was actually Alesha Dixon’s “Knock Down” all along. Cole became an Internet sensation after the owner of the cafe across the street from the bus stop recorded her sweet moves and uploaded the clip to the web. It’s not every sensation that ends in a success story, but lo! The video helped Cole, a former performing arts major who was forced to resign due to financial reasons, score a (dancing!) part in a play at a prestigious theatre in her hometown. She will appear in the acclaimed musical Ah Men!, and says of her new role role, “It’s very flattering and humbling.” Dancing queen, indeed. [Gawker]

Trainer Trials: Watch Amelia & Jessica Shake Their Tail Feathers At Zumba!
WTF Are We Doing? We're DANCING!

It’s time for another episode of “Trainer Trials,” our new video series in which I try out various fitness activities in hopes of finding one or more that I don’t hate. (That sounds negative. I’m just really good at finding excuses not to work out, so in order to keep the ol’ ticker healthy, I need a semi-regular fitness routine that is at least half as enjoyable and fun as, say, drinking wine and organizing my sea shell collection.) The amazing Zuta Gilchriest from Crunch Gym came by The Frisky video studio to give me and Jessica some private Zumba tutelage, and, well, booties were poppin’. (Watch above!) Zumba combines dance styles like salsa, merengue and soca, with standard workout moves like lunges and squats, all to the tune of various Latin and world beats. I know, I know, we’re making it look easy – but it’s not. Embodying the spirit of Sasha Fierce works up a sweat, you guys. I don’t know that I feel confident enough yet in my skills, but perhaps after a few more classes, I’ll be bustin’ out that towel move at the clurb. Look out!

There Is Nothing Better Than This Dancing Guy

There Is Nothing Better Than This Dancing Guy
Get Right Down To The Real "Nitty Gritty"!

As someone who is apparently not intelligent enough to follow the steps on my “Step Up Revolution” workout DVD, I’m in awe of the dancing in this clip from a 1964 episode of “The Judy Garland Show.” While the guys in the backline appear to be phoning it in a little bit, the guy up front is really killing it. That might be because he also choreographed the dance — his name is Robert Banas, and he danced and choreographed for TV and film from the ’60s up through the ’80s. I wish somebody could teach me those moves. Unrelated: Why can’t dudes just wear suits like that all the time? [YouTube]
