What better way to let off some of that quarantine-fatigue than by nailing one or more of the most popular TikTok dances?
OK, we can think of a few better uses of your time. But still: From revolutionizing sex ed to making us reconsider our relationship to millennial beauty, in 2020 the app went from being a buzzy talking point to legitimately shaping pop culture as we know it.

Whether you’re looking to jump back in after a brief hiatus from the app or a total newbie to the dance craze, we’ve got you covered with 10 popular TikTok dances to try at home. Best part: These don’t just look easy to copy, they actually are. Try one, or all.
