There are some days we’d rather stay inside, but hanging out at home doesn’t mean you have to stop moving. An afternoon indoors is the perfect opportunity to learn some sweet dance moves – and break out a sweat while you’re at it. Pull up YouTube, start a challenge (try the Paparazzi Dash or Breakdance Battle), and get your groove on.
Here are a few of our favorite “how to dance” videos.
