After a long past year and many months in quarantine, it’s probably safe to say that learning new dance moves hasn’t been on the top of anyone’s to-do list.

Yet, with spring just around the corner and places starting to open back up, it’s time to freshen up that “Electric Slide” you always do and consult the place coming up with all the new trends: TikTok.

Less than a minute each, these are the new dance trends that are sweeping the platform.

You can find all the major TikTok stars like queen of the app, @charliedamelio, dancing to this one! With these simple moves, she leads the crowd in this trend.
