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:
The Macarena is hip shaking good.
Performing the Cotton Eyed Joe usually results in a lot of jumping and fist-pumping.
Soulja Boy made supermanning a "hoe" a thing, so that's cool.
Lisa Turtle and Screech are more than willing to teach you The Sprain.
We're not sure of the Stanky Leg's origin, but it makes getting dog poo off your shoe look unbelievably cool.
The Carlton is a classic for anyone looking to master upper body moves.
The Lean Back is for the beginner dancer.
The Cabbage Patch is spherically awesome.
If you loved Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, and 98 Degrees you know The Boy Band all too well.
You can easily achieve The Britney with a school girl outfit and some arm ingenuity.
The MC Hammer shuffled its way into our hearts.
An easy wedding dance classic comes in the form of The Electric Slide .
The Sprinkler can put out any fire with its cuteness.
The Worm makes our soul slither with '90s delight.
And Miley Cyrus' Twerk can make any dancer look like a seXXXy fool!
Happy Anniversary, Footloose, and happy dancing!
