Dancing Queen Bus Stop Lady Lands A Prestigious Theatre Part

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"…

Trainer Trials: Watch Amelia & Jessica Shake Their Tail Feathers At Zumba!

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…

There Is Nothing Better Than This Dancing Guy

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 u…

Be My Boyfriend: Just A Hillbilly & His Raccoon Dancing To Aretha

Love is a many-splendored thing, and it can exist in a variety of permutations. I mean, who are we to judge the love shared between a man and his raccoon? It's unclear just how "Coon Rippy," a self-described "hillbillly," came upon a raccoon and Aretha Franklin's "Chain of Fools." But whatever the circumstances, for this brief…

Watch This Boozy Beauty Ruin A Bride’s Wedding!

You would think an open bar at a wedding would be the perfect way to liven up the crowd and get everyone’s dancing shoes movin', but not for this unfortunate bride. One of her guests was bathing in booze. In this video, a red-dressed beauty gets bombed and a bit too comfortable with her makeshift…

10 Types Of Dancers You’ll Always See At A Club

Recently, I went out dancing with some friends. Looking around at the crowd bouncing and swaying to the beat, I realized that no matter what club you go to, there are certain types of dancers that you're always going to see. Like the true nerd that I am, I went home and wrote them all…

Dancing Queen Bus Stop Lady Has The Right Idea

The name William W. Purkey might not mean anything to you, but he's the guy who coined the phrase "dance like nobody's watching." That's pretty solid advice, we think. Take this unidentified woman grooving along to her headphones at a bus stop in the British town of Eastleigh. Who among us hasn't secretly danced at…

Bill Cosby Does A Little Jig On “Letterman,” All Is Right With The World

I love me some Bill Cosby. As a child I used to actively wish he was my dad, which really pissed off my real dad. Sorry about that, real dad! Anyway, Bill is so funny, and I just love his face. And his voice. And, like, everything about him. Yeah, if you asked me what…

Girl Talk: I Left Ballet Over A Dance Injury

It was a typical Orange County night at the tail end of a long, lazy winter break. The plethora of yogurt shops in the neighborhood were closing, and even if you craved a Starbucks treat, it was too late in suburbia. The few dive-bars in the area boasted their usual divorcee crowd. My mom, dad…

6 Reasons To Take A Dance Class, Like, Right Now

As much as I love to rock out in my car and throw my hands in the air like I just don't care at concerts, I've always operated under the assumption that I can't dance. I have vaguely fond memories of a brief stint in ballet as a preschooler, but the only other dance experience…

William And Kate Get Their Hula On In Tuvalu

Boobs? What boobs? Now that a French court has ruled that Kate Middleton's topless photos can no longer be printed, can we focus on the Duke and Duchess doing other things? Like, showing off their dance moves during a traditional welcoming ceremony on the Pacific island of Tuvalu? I think Kate wins the dance-off here,…

In Honor Of Madonna’s Birthday: A Voguing Bar Mitzvah Boy

First things first, Happy 54th Birthday, Madonna! And now, onto Shaun Sperling and his Bar Mitzvah voguing. WERK! He was the belle of his ball back in 1992. That button down. Those moves. I need to know where Shaun is now so we can be best friends. While Shaun was becoming a man in subur…

Watch: A 12-Year-Old Breakdancing Master

Ignore the overwrought soundtrack to this little mini-movie, and instead focus on the amazing moves of 12-year-old Justin Beer, the pint-sized breakdancing master featured here. Beer's got the chops to be a major breakdancing sensation -- before he's even out of middle school. [YouTube]…

Hillary Clinton Gets Her Freak On In South Africa

I am easily susceptible to secondhand embarrassment. I watch many reality TV shows from behind my hands or a pillow and visibly cringe when someone who is old enough to be my parent uses current slang. So maybe it's just me being sensitive, but this video of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton getting freaked by…

Don’t Miss It: Oxygen’s New Show Has “All The Right Moves”

Men with hot bodies? Check. Incredible dance moves? Check. Reality TV drama? Check. Oh, hello, I have a new favorite TV show, and it's called "All The Right Moves." The new reality show on Oxygen follows four male dancers/choreographers as they embark upon launching their own dance company. Some of the faces are familiar: Travis Wall and …

“Small Town Security” Recap: The Land Of A Thousand Hoarding Dances

This week's episode of "Small Town Security" takes a break from chronicling Lieutenant Denis Croft's time traveling love affair with his boss Chief Joan Koplan, and instead focuses on Joan's husband Irwin. Irwin has a problem -- and no, I'm not referring to his desire to dye his graying hair cherry red (which…

“SYTYCD”: Our Favorite Performances From Last Night’s “So You Think You Can Dance”

Did you catch "So You Think You Can Dance" last night? Another guy and girl dancer were eliminated (don't worry, I won't spoil the episode by telling you who, but SAD FACE), but not before the Top 16 performed. The talent this year is just so beyond, I don't feel like any of them ever…

Style 911: Help Me Find The Perfect Wedding Shoes!

I'm going to a wedding in a few weeks and am recycling a dress I love that I've worn before (see photo). I want to buy a new pair of nude-colored shoes to wear with it, but would ideally like to find something that I could wear with other, more casual outfits throughout the summer.

Dance Like Nobody’s Watching

What happens when a girl, armed with only her iPod, decides to take her dancing out of her bedroom and into the streets, er, well, the mall? Hello Giggles sent correspondent Angela to the Galleria Mall in Sherman Oaks, California, to find out. [YouTube]…

First Time For Everything: Dancing At Coyote Ugly

Here’s a thing I can promise: If you invite me to your wedding, your other guests will comment on the quality of my dancing. It’s inevitable. I’ve never been to a wedding where the thank you note for whatever I picked off the registry didn’t do exactly that. Anything from, “My Uncle Morty loved your…
