Music and dance go hand-in-hand, and with gems like The Dougie and Soulja Boy’s Superman exploding onto the scene and taking over dance floors we decided to dedicated today’s list to exploring the art of dance.

1. Moonwalk


Few can do it, but it’s known and loved by all.

2. The Hokey-Pokey


Because let’s be honest, it’s what it’s all about.

3. The Hustle


Nothing else on this list has spawned so many other dances: The Electric Slide, The Ballroom Hustle, The Cupid Shuffle, Cha-Cha Slide, etc. No matter the alterations, this dance is classic.

4. The Charleston


We all like to swing dance, though no one really knows how to do it anymore. Lindy Hop, Jive, Jitterbug… at least Daft Punk keeps swing alive.

5. The Robot


Best done by actual robots, it’s still a constant party favorite.

6. The Twist


Come on baby…

7. Y.M.C.A.


Present at every wedding since the beginning of time.

8. Raise the Roof


Done as a dance or celebration, this move is a guaranteed win.

9. The Macarena


Anyone who has ever been to a school dance can understand why the Macarena makes the list.

10. The Running Man


Work, work, work it out.

11. Tootsie Roll


Cotton candy, sweet and low, let me see that Totsee Roll

12. The Worm


Also known as The Centipede, it’s a classic break dance move.

13. The Sprinkler


A ridiculous dance that often results in poked eyes, but often brought out at social gatherings.
