Let's hear it for the boy Footloose!

The story of a young rebel (played by Kevin Bacon) who rides into town and starts a dancing revolution against the wishes of concerned parents of Beaumont, Texas is turing 30 today, y'all!

Seriously, there WAS an original flick before the 2011 remake starring Julianne Hough and Kenny Wormald! LOLz!

In order to celebrate the youthful spark of creativity that Ren McCormack accomplished in this brazilliant 1984 classic—we've decided to celebrate with a dance!

Well..an epic rewind of 15 moves from years past!

If you haven't mastered the movie's signature groove, perhaps you can try one of the following on for size:
