Harlem Shake: 5 More Hip-Hop Dances That Need to be Revived


Have you heard about the Harlem Shake?

If you’ve been on the internet at all over the past 72 hours, surely you have. Heck, you may have even uploaded your own video of you and your pals dancing around like a crazed person to trap DJ Baauer’s “Harlem Shake.”

But for everyone just getting hip to the dance, it’s well… not new. In fact, it’s a relic from the late 90s and early 2000s.

But okay, internets, you win. Since you want to bring back hip-hop dances, here are five more we’re waiting on.

Feel free to make these go viral and pretend they’re new, too. Hey maybe you can even act like you made them up!

The Wop (1986)

95 South’s “Tootsee Roll (1994)”

Freak Nasty’s “Da Dip”(1996)

Kid N’ Play’s “Kick Step”(1990)

Diamond’s “Bankhead Bounce” (1995)
