So They Thought They Could Dance?

It’s been a weird couple weeks, here on I don’t know what it is that’s in the air, but there’s something going around that is making people dance, and their videos keep ending up on Break. You may be wondering, “How can I get in on dancing the fine line between completely embarrassing myself and becoming an internet hero?” Well, let’s take a look at these recent videos and see what we can learn from them.

You don’t need a partner. Just do it. What’s the worst that could happen? You embarrass yourself in front of your small town, where everybody knows your name? No problem. A bus will be along shortly to transport you far, far away.

You don’t need a partner, but dancing is a lot more fun when you have one. The ladies are just waiting for a man to take control on the dance floor, so don’t be afraid. Just take the lead. And the restraining order.

When you’re dancing, nothing can keep you down. Except gravity. It’s really good at that.

Gravity may be good at keeping you down, but you know what? You just keep getting right back up. Coolio once told me “You gotta gotta get up to get down,” and he was right. You were so wise, Coolio. So wise.

Just believe in your moves– no matter how old they are.

Because when you believe in your moves, neither man nor machine can beat you. You are unstoppable.
When you put it all together, one thing becomes crystal clear. Don’t ever let a person turn a camera on you while you’re dancing. You’ll probably get famous for all the wrong reasons. Just put the new Daft Punk on and keep dancing in front of your mirror like you have been. It’s the safest option.
