10 Dope Dances

From Soulja Boy’s “Crank That” to Cali Swag District’s “Teach Me How to Dougie,” we’ve seen dance crazes sweep the nation almost overnight from school gymnasiums to YouTube videos. Here are our top 10 favorite dances:

1. The Dougie
Last summer, everybody wanted you to “Teach Me How to Dougie.” If you watch Cali Swag District’s video over and over, you’ll eventually learn.

2. Stanky Legg
Go ahead and admit it. At least once, you sang “When I hit the dance floor, I be doing the stanky legg” along with the GS Boyz while trying to master the dance.

3. Swag Surfin’
Regardless of whether you’ve got swag or not, you definitely turned it up when you heard this song, and danced along while maintaining your swagger, of course.

4. The Soulja Boy
When Soulja Boy first hit the scene in 2007, he brought along his own dance, which is probably one of the most popular hip hop dances ever. Even Beyonce cranked that Soulja Boy on her tour.

5. Get Me Bodied
Beyonce definitely got her fans bodies with this dance track, and ladies all over the country patted their weave, posed for the camera and got their Naomi Campbell walk on in the club.

6. The Chicken Noodle Soup
Don’t let the title of this song fool you. This cute kid-friendly dance likely took over playgrounds all over the nation.

7. The Harlem Shake
Hence the name, this dance originated in Harlem in 1981 and became popular again in the 2000s. The Chicken Noodle Soup was derived from this popular dance.

8. Chicago Step
Whether you if you’re dancing at a wedding to R. Kelly’s “Step in the Name of Love” or you have two left feet, this is perfect dance to master.

9. Flex
If you like to flex your muscles, you probably love dancing along to this song by The Party Boyz. Now we’ll watch you work.

10. Pop, Lock & Drop It
Fellas, leave this dance to the ladies. We don’t want to see any of you popping, locking or dropping anything on the dance floor.
