If you are considering scheduling a dance lesson at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, one easy way you can prepare is to hop on social media and learn some TikTok dances!
TikTok has more than 689 million active users and has been downloaded more than 2 billion times from the App Store and Google Play. The video-sharing app is owned by the Beijing, China-based technology company ByteDance. For Fred Astaire Dance Studios’ less tech-savvy readers, TikTok allows users to create 15-second, short-form video clips they can spice up with special filters and music. The subject matter of the videos varies widely. On TikTok, you can get makeup tutorials, watch funny pet videos, or take cooking lessons. TikTok has even partnered with the World Health Organization to create an informational page on TikTok that provides trustworthy information, offers tips on staying safe and preventing the spread of the virus, and dispels myths around COVID-19.
The increasing popularity of the app is prompting a fun dance trend adopted by both children and adults. While child health experts are slow to tout social media programs, many are embracing the creative aspects of TikTok and the community it created for both kids and adults this past year. TikTok’s popularity soared following the outbreak of the pandemic last year. People were searching for fun ways to connect with the world while they quarantined at home. Many families spent time creating fun videos on TikTok to help pass the time.
If you just downloaded TikTok, Fred Astaire Dance Studios is rounding up the top five TikTok dance videos of 2020 to provide you with the creative inspiration you’ll need to share your first video with the world.
- Families across the country were up to the challenge of performing a routine to “Blinding Lights” by The Weeknd. In this clip, a mom joins her two daughters on their makeshift dance floor.
- The singer of “Tap In,” Saweetie, amped-up the popularity of a TikTok dance to her single by taking time to record her own video of the dance.
- While the dance to “Say So” by Doja Cat debuted in 2019, its popularity continued into 2020. Doja Cat reportedly recorded a video that includes the TikTok dance sensation.
- The “Do I Have Your Attention Challenge,” performed to “Attention” by Todrick Hall, stands out because it is one of the few TikTok dances that require special skills and flexibility. The gymnastics-inspired moves include back springs and splits.
- The last TikTok dance is great for beginners. The dance is to “Vibe (If I Back It Up)” by Cookiee Kawaii and includes movements that coincide with various sounds in the song.
After warming up by practicing the viral TikTok trend, Fred Astaire Dance Studios will help you learn moves you can use to take your wife out dancing or to impress family at the next wedding you attend. The franchisor of dance studios provides individual and group dance lessons designed to help people hone their dancing skills and get in shape by learning the time-honored tradition of ballroom dancing.
