Tavaris Jones dancing with the Cleveland Cavaliers' Scream Team hip-hop crew

We always love a good halftime performance. And we LIVE for halftime performances involving talented kids. (Fingers and toes crossed that Justin Timberlake follows Missy Elliott's lead and invites some fabulous littles to share his Super Bowl stage.)

So obviously, our hearts completely melted for 5-year-old Tavaris Jones. Tavaris may have just started kindergarten, but during Monday night's game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors, the Detroit native danced with the panache of a veteran pro at halftime.

Often, Disney princesses get flak for being weak and passive as they wait to be rescued by their princes. But Scott Winn's video of Belle and Elsa breaking it down in a fierce dance battle gives these princesses some serious street cred.

It doesn't hurt that a few of the best dancers in the biz are featured in the playful parody. "Step Up: High Water" star Jade Chynoweth might initially be hard to recognize under that Belle wig, but once the dancing starts, her high energy and show-stopping moves make her easy to identify. And "Glee" standout Haylee Roderick, as Anna, brings some high-caliber technique to the spoof as well.

We've all heard William Shakespeare's famous quote "all the world's a stage." Dance photographer, Jordan Matter has taken that quote quite literally as he prefers to shoot his dancers in every day settings like grocery stores, subway stations, and even in the middle of the street. But Matter takes things to a whole new level of outrageous in his latest YouTube video, where he teams up with dancer and model Em Marie, for a photo shoot in Miami International Airport. That's right, Matter uses the chaotic and rather aggravating ambiance that is an airport for the backdrop of one of the most elegant art forms—and we don't hate it.
