Strike A Pose, There’s Nothing To It

The documentary about New York's drag scene, "Paris is Burning," is one of my favorite movies of all time, so it figures that I'm really excited to check out the new book, Voguing and the House Ballroom Scene of New York. The book chronicles all the families, houses and performers of New York's vibrant drag…

Tom Cruise Boogies Down Xenu Style

See Tom Cruise. See Tom Cruise sing. See Tom Cruise dance. See Tom Cruise embarrass himself. This is footage of Tom cutting loose on a Scientology retreat is worse than the most awkward moments at my Bat Mitzvah.

An ’80s Teen Slow Jam–Featuring Kelly Ripa!

Guys, it's important that we all have somebody by our side that we can count on. That's the message of this '80s hit by Corey Hart, titled "By Your Side," that was featured on a local Philadelphia dance show. While it's clear that many of the ladies on the show (and gentlemen) actually count o…

Heather Morris’ School Of Dance

Heather Morris, aka Brittany S. Pierce, has quickly become our favorite Gleek thanks to her awesome one-liners and killer dance moves. So when I saw that Esquire had posted a video called "How To Dance With Heather Morris," I got kind of excited. I was picturing "Darrin's Dance Groove" from back i…

GIF Of The Day: Rob Lowe Dances On “Parks & Recreation”

Rob Lowe always seemed like a stuffed shirt nowadays to me — a hot stuffed shirt, mind you — based on his buttoned up roles on "The West Wing" and "Brothers & Sisters." It turns out the guy can bust a move and he did so Thursday night on "Parks & Recreation." NYmag.com's Vulture…

A Shoe Habit To Put Ours To Shame

Women often get a bad rap for being shoe obsessed, but most women I know have nothing on the men of the Mexican town of Matehuala. The men and boys in Matehuala have been busy trying to outdo themselves with more elaborate and outlandish shoes--like the oversized elfish cowboy boots shown above. Styles and trend…

I Wanna Dance With This Guy

You know what always puts a smile on my face? Someone dancing like nobody is watching. Like this older gentleman (and his lady dance partner) totally getting down to a live band performing "I Wanna Dance With Somebody." I love that he's actually acting out all of the lyrics. Oh! And the way he just…

If The Game And 50 Cent Had A Hoedown

I couldn't resist this funny dance/hip-hop mashup. I don't know what this kind of dancing is called but I need to learn it NOW. Could it be the precursor to breakdancing? [BuzzFeed]…

The Best Pool Exit Of All Time

Well, that's one way to get out of a pool. Either she's the happiest swimmer on earth or there's some Kool-Aid in the water. [BuzzFeed]…

Cool Video: Dancing In Movies

This is a cool montage of different cinematic dance scenes, but am I the only one who found it a little disconcerting to see Jamie Lee Curtis, the poop yogurt lady, dancing super sexy?? [via kottke.org]…

Demi Moore Does It Doggie-Style

Demi Moore got down with the Doggfather, Snoop Dogg, at his concert in Las Vegas this past weekend. I had no idea Demi had so much street cred. Ashton, on the other hand, was a wallflower. Or maybe he was just too lifted to move. [Huffington Post]…

The Hunks Of Club Fantasy

The weekend is almost upon us and my secret wish is to find a man to dance with. In my fantasies, he is wearing a fur loin cloth and boots or nerd glasses or maybe even leather chaps. Yeah! Chaps! And we are swaying to '80s synth rock on a checkered dance floor at a…

Girl Talk: Why I Became Obsessed With Break Dancing

Growing up in Brooklyn, I was a tomboy without any contact with actual boys. I was the youngest of two girls raised by a single mother. My sister and I both went to an all-girls, ultra-Orthodox Jewish day school and neither of us had any male friends. During summer breaks, I went to an all-girl…

Dancing Alone To “Pony”

A new blog, Dancing Alone to Pony, is bringing back a '90s R&B song in a big way. Do you remember Ginuwine's super sexual song "Pony"? Of course you do. The lyrics are pretty darn grind-worthy—there's a bit about riding a pony ... and I don't think he means a baby horse. Blogger…
