Every Dance Move That Went Viral In 2018
2018 will forever be known as the year we declared that vibing out to music is a MOOD...and it sure was. This year, viral choreography turned ordinary people into household names and even our fave celebs got involved, making for one hell of a party.
1. Orange Justice
If you haven't heard of Roy Purdy then you definitely need to do a quick Google search and fill yourself in. The 20-year-old social media star created the dance at the beginning of the year which took the Internet by storm. How do you do it? Bend your knees, flick your arms out at a 45 degree angle, and let the good times roll.
Did you happen to see people stepping out of moving cars to dance this year? Well, they've either lost their minds, or they're doing the Shiggy Challenge...made popular by Drake's track 'In My Feelings.' The dance was created by social media comedian Shiggy, who was given $250,000 by Drake after his track hit no. 1 on the charts and the dance went viral. Nice work!
It's commonplace for a politican to get involved with the culture when they travel abroad. Sometimes it comes off as nice and respectful...but other times it just ends in embarassment. Just ask UK prime minister Theresa May. While visiting South Africa, May got amongst the dancing students of ID Mkhize High School in Cape Town... and the 'Maybot' was born. Wow.
5. Blocboy JB Shoot! Dance
If you've ~surfed the Interwebs~ in the last 12 months, there's a good chance you've seen the Shoot! dance, popularised by rapper BlocBoy JB's 2017 track of the same name. The move was a hit...but didn't go viral until BlocBoy released 'Look Alive' featuirng Drake this February. TBH, the dance requires some good coordination so hats off to JB.
If you've ever been to Mykonos then there's no doubt that you were living your absolute BEST life. Same goes for Lindsay Lohan, who was captured breaking out some pretty #unique dance moves while at party on the Greek island. LiLo's dance moves birthed some pretty iconic memes and, of course, the #DotheLilo challenge...which was taken on by celebs including Chrissy Teigen and Busy Phillips.
7. Floss Dance
Arguable the MOST viral dance of 2018, the floss took the Internet by storm this year. Although the Floss was originally created in 2016 by 16-year-old Instagrammer Russell 'Backpack kid' Horning, it made its way into the mainstream this year and even made a cameo in Katy Perry's video for 'Swish Swish.' If you're like me and can't do it to save yourself then don't stress, because there's plenty of tutorials online to help.
