You'll need a cowboy hat for this one. Or any hat will do at a pinch. This dance matches Billy Ray Cyrus's epic lyrics in the remix, so try and follow along with the actions, and you should pick it up pretty quick. There's loads of other Old Town Road inspired dances out there, so see which one's your fave! It's fingers only for this one! People have been using the finger dance to show off their dexterous skills.

There's loads of variations of this one - maybe you can even make up your own! Not actually that spooky or scary, but lots of fun, even if it's not Halloween! This dance requires you throw shapes like a skeleton with no bone control!

If social distancing has finally inspired you to download TikTok, the social-media app dominated by Gen Z , congratulations! Just as the currency of early Instagram was photos of latte art, the currency of TikTok right now is 15 to 30 second dances. The pros — in this case, teen or something dancers — make up choreography, and sometimes it catches on, inspiring other people to upload their own versions. Even Hailey and Justin Bieber are doing them. If those words mean nothing to you, take a deep breath, get into something comfy, and check out the ten dances below, ranked from easiest to borderline impossible. A quick note on the medium: Audio is central to TikTok. Instead of passing around photos or jpeg formats, the sounds get used over and over. Move your left arm down at a diagonal and move your right arm up, parallel to the left. If Laura Dern can do this one, so can you.

At this time of year, the dancer Erica Lall, a member of the corps of American Ballet Theater, would normally be preparing for eight weeks of performances at the Metropolitan Opera House. But in mid-March, as the company moved toward calling off its spring season, she found herself back in her hometown Cypress, Tex. Lall, 22, was referring to the viral dance challenges that circulate on TikTok: short, music-driven sequences of choreography, created by individual users — or swiped from other video platforms — and replicated sometimes by millions of other people around the world. Since its release in , TikTok has become a wildly popular global platform for dance, especially among teens, with tools that make it easy to film yourself dancing to music, integrate special effects and share the results. Among older dance enthusiasts, TikTok has not caught on as widely. In recent weeks, the app has attracted a small but growing contingent of professional dancers in their 20s and 30s, who are more accustomed to performing onstage than onscreen. Until now, they lacked the time or interest to get acquainted with the app, or maybe thought they were too old for it.
Subscriber Account active since. Walk into almost any middle school or high school, and nine out of 10 kids could not only tell you what the "Renegade" dance is but most likely perform it. The viral dance made popular on TikTok is a testament to the app's power and influence over today's trends and pop culture. TikTok users across the country are getting signed to management companies and TikTok choreographers are being asked by notable artists to promote their songs on their account. The Chinese-created app has taken the world by storm as it's grown from a video sharing app for today's youth, to a multi-generational content sharing platform for creatives in dance, film and music. One of the biggest aspects of the app is the ability to create dances to remix music or popular songs and then "hype" yourself in the hope of going viral and having other TikTok users attempt your choreography on their own accounts. For those who aren't on the app, there are quite a few dances that have spilled into mainstream pop culture, with millions of people participating in viral challenges daily. The hardest part of being a viral choreographer on TikTok is making sure you're given credit for your dance.
