Are you tired of doing “the sprinkler” and “running man”? We at Betterfly happen to be fans of running –actual running, but when it comes to cheesy dance moves that share names with garden tools and should only be attempted occasionally at weddings and bar mitzvahs (in front of family members who won’t judge you), we recommend taking a cue from our dance teachers.
After all, Voltaire may have described dance as one of the “amusements [that] will never do any harm to the world,” but we have to object to flailing arms on the dance floor, if only for safety purposes. If you or someone you know is suffering from a case of two left feet, or maybe you just want to improve your existing dance skills, see our list of online resources. They’ll have you shakin’ your bon-bon, boogeyin’ on down, and gettin’ jiggy with it in no time.
