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…

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]…

Man “Double Dream Hands” His Way To Dance Magic

What do you get when you combine Gary Busey and elaborate Broadway musical dance numbers? This guy. John Jacobson runs an elementary music education magazine called Music Express Magazine. He’s also the author of the song “Planet Rock,” which can be heard on this video. Jacobson wanted to leave nothing to chance, so he…

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]…

David Arquette Dances On A Table

David Arquette spent the weekend crying more over his separation doing his best Paris Hilton impersonation at the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami. He posted this photo of himself dancing on a table, as well several others, on Twitter this weekend.

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]…

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…

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…

Shake Your Groove Thang At Dance Dance Party Party

A couple of years ago when I was new to New York and looking for a fun way to shed some of the pounds I’d gained after indulging in some of the city’s thousands of delicious restaurants, I decided to take a friend’s recommendation and give Dance Dance Party Party a try. “It’s a big…

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 A.

New Dance Craze: The Surra De Bunda Is Perfect For Lazy Dudes

Dance craze alert! There’s a new raunchy dance coming out of Brazil called the Surra De Bunda. The general idea is that a guy sits on the ground with his legs outstretched. Yeah, that’s all he does. Then a scantily clad lady dances while he watches her butt. Then she puts her hands on hi…

We Love A Man Who Can Dance

At some point in the recent past in North America, dancing started being considered a non-masculine thing to do. Men in other cultures don’t even question whether they should dance or not. We’ve gotten into the bad habit of not even trying to dance. Women hate that. They grew up loving “Flashdance,” “Dirty Dancing,” “Save…

(Almost) Dealbreaker: My Boyfriend Can’t Dance

The recently announced cast of “Dancing with the Stars” includes some unlikely picks—um, Buzz Aldrin?—but I doubt any of them trump my boyfriend Michael when it comes to dance floor incompetence. He is clownish and rhythmically challenged, prone to hip-thrusting, butt-bumping, and the occasional fist-pumping.

It’s a wonder I can even publicly admit this,…

High Schools Get Creative To Stop Dirty Dancing

Apparently, school dances have progressed from the days when the girls stood at one side of the gym and the boys stood on the other. Nope, today’s horny little teenagers are freaking and grinding and doing whatever they can at school dances to rub their privates together. How do I know about this problem? Well,…

The Daily Ovulation: The Littlest B-Boy

Check out the world’s littlest b-boy. This kid’s got the kind of skillz they don’t teach in pre-school. Watch out “So You Think You Can Dance!” By the time this little guy is old enough to speak, he should be a full-blown hip-hop star. I hope if I ever make a baby that it…

I Learned How To Dance From The Interwebs

Confession: my secret dream has always been to be a dancer. Harsh reality: I am a hot, awkward mess on the dance floor. Back in the day, I used to be the wallflower at the party watching other people get down … until one fateful night when, with the help of a little liquid…

Dancing With The Stars Goes Gay: Lance Should Dance With A Man!

Lance Bass has certainly danced with boys before. Granted those cute N’Sync coordinated moves didn’t require the gents to partner up, but let’s face it, they were still pretty gay. And now that Lance has signed on to show off his skills on Dancing With The Stars, the question is: Will this gay guy be…

Top Eight Music Videos Featuring Sweet Dance Moves

1. Janet Jackson, “If” You may be saying to yourself, “Wait, why not ‘Rhythm Nation’?” Because everyone assumes that “Rhythm Nation” is Janet’s best dance video, but it’s not. “If” is much dirtier. See for yourself.
