WOAH! I did not see you there! 2019 has been a crazy and unpredictable year, and one of the only things that has helped us get through it was dancing. Dancing has been proven to improve strength, stamina, and cardiovascular health. Read on to reminisce on the moves that followed us this year.

Starting in 2016, a new wave of dance moves came to be. Beginning with hitting dem folks and milly rocking, from that point on, dancing would never be the same. Songs were soon released afterwards that millions of people could dance to, including “Hit the Quan” by iLoveMemphis and “Juju On That Beat” by Zay Hilfigerrr and Zayion McCall. As time went on, these moves were being invented by anyone who could count on beat. The reverse nae nae and shoot were soon popular, thus adding to the movements going viral.

In 2019 especially, the new app TikTok opened up a portal of dancing opportunities. 15-second song snippets are giving teens a chance to come up with little dancing routines for them and their friends to make. One of the most popular dance movements is the woah. This began while a DJ in Dallas, Texas, was putting his car in park, leading to a bouncing movement on his hands. The woah spiraled, and people all over the world were creating new versions of it and doing it to different songs. In just about every TikTok dance, you can find the woah present. A popular version is the clock woah, which involves doing a complicated movement with your arms and ending in the famous bouncing style.

Dancing gives people an opportunity to express freedom and individualism. Senior Nazjeah David said, “I really like to dance, and I do it almost everyday. My go-to dance move is always the dougie.” Movements such as the Roy Purdy and flossing have started a trend of dancing that is far from being over. The famous movements, such as the woah, are strangely very similar. Just like they are easy to do, they are easy to make up as well. This means anyone can come up with their own soon-to-be-viral move. Try it!
