The Best Dance Videos To Practice Alone In Your Room Tonight

For some of us, dancing along to "Single Ladies" while pre-gaming on a Saturday night is about all the exercise we get. And you know what? That's okay. You do you. We're just here to help. Thus, behold: Our list of the greatest dance moves ever captured on film. And we're not talking about YouTube celebrities. We're talking professional choreography, off-the-charts sets, multi-million-dollar budgets, and some of the greatest two-step talent of our time. So, put on your dancing pants, put down the ice cream, cancel your plans, and let's do this.

Shakira, "Loba"
Ladies and lobas, to borrow the nomenclature of the drag scene, here is Shakira serving some serious she-wolf realness. The charm of this video is that the watcher gets the sense that they just snuck into Shakira's private world, where she is just being weird and Shakira-ing around. The sequence at the end, with the skipping and hair-flipping, is simultaneously adorable, bizarre, and incredible. "Aah-ooo!"

Missy Elliot, "I'm Really Hot"
Though the author's favorite Missy Elliot video is definitely "I'm Really Hot," the easy crowd pleaser is the synchronized school girl dance-off of "Gossip Folks." In head-to-toe Adidas and Timberlands, Missy and her dancers have never made wearing track jackets look so darn funky.
