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 Nick Lazzarini were both…

“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 yes, i…

“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…

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. I was under the impression that Tom knew the fundamentals of singing and dancing. I guess I…

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…

Happy Hump Day: A Dancing Whale!

 

Olé! This beluga whale shakes a dorsal fin during an impromptu mariachi serenade at the Mystic Marinelife Aquarium in Connecticut. Is anybody else wondering why there is a mariachi group performing at an aquarium? Oh well, it doesn’t really matter. Enjoy the dancing whale. [The Daily What]…

Jennifer Lopez’s First Gig Was Back-Up Dancing For New Kids On The Block

Last night, Jennifer Lopez sat down for an interview with Jay Leno and he asked her about her first dance gig. “I got a job working as a back-up dancer for New Kids on the Block,” she said. “It was dancing for them on the American Music Awards and it was a big…

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 in the…

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 blog…

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…
