3 Viral Dance Videos That Will Make You Smile

This time of year can be tough. Maybe you're having a less-than-perfect start to your holiday season. Maybe your weekend felt too short, and you're shuffling off to work or school against your wishes. Maybe you feel that if you hear "Waltz of the Flowers" one more time, you're going to go coo-coo.

So, here I bring you three dance videos that will certainly help you get over your case of the Mondays.

1. Lauren Cuthbertson on injury and dancing again:

Culture website NOWNESS regularly profiles artists talking about snippets of their lives. Its recent video with Royal Ballet principal Lauren Cutherbertson is just beautiful. Sure, she dances full out for the camera towards the end, but the breathtaking part is the first minute. The dexterity and control she has over each toe is incredible.

 

2. State Street Ballet gets creative during a layover:

Security lines, delayed flights, layovers. Traveling can be such a pain. But these dancers from the Santa Barbara-based State Street Ballet found a creative way to pass the time. (Though credit should also be given to Colorado Ballet dancers, who did it first.)

 

3. Britney Spears attempts fouetté turns:

No words can do this video justice.

I could dance to this song a MILLION times...love you Adele!

Spot does a variation on the running man (the running dog?), twerks and sashays. Equally adorable and uncanny, it's a fascinating piece of choreography. All the more so since it was recently announced that Cirque du Soleil has entered an experimental phase to explore the possibility of incorporating Spots into live dance, theater and circus shows.
