7 of the Best TikTok Dance Challenges to Learn While Stuck at Home

Right now, a lot of us are social-distancing. Which is a good thing for the community. But for dancers, being at home—read: not in the studio—can be especially tough.

Enter TikTok. The app is blowing up right now, with everyone from Hailey Bieber to LeBron James to former Bachelorette (and "Dancing with the Stars" champ) Hannah Brown making accounts to stave off the stir-craziness.

To get you started on your TikTok journey, Dance Spirit rounded up seven of the best dances for you to learn. And when you're ready to share the fruits of your TikTok labors, be sure to tag us @dancespiritmagazine—we'll repost some of our faves!

"Say So" Dance

@yodelinghaley

HERE IT IS!! the full say so dance🥺🥰

♬ say so by doja cat - yodelinghaley

The "Say So" is one of the most popular dances on TikTok in part because it's so simple. Because really, if you have two minutes, you can learn this dance. Plus, Doja Cat, who sings "Say So" featured the TikTok dance in the music video for her song.

"Blinding Lights" Challenge

@ellamwils

make this go viral bc my mom thinks she wasn’t good 🥺 ##ButterGlossPop ##gamingszn ##mealprep ##quarantine ##fyp ##xyzbca ##staysafe ##dance ##MoodBoost

♬ The Weeknd - Blinding Lights - gregdahl7

Because the "Blinding Lights" dance requires three people, TikTokers everywhere are rounding up their bored family members to perform it with them. Grab two members of your #quarantinecrew and you're good to go!

"Savage" Dance

@kekepalmer

##savagechallenge

♬ original sound - kekepalmer

Set to "Savage" by Megan Thee Stallion, this dance challenge recently got super big. Show your followers that you're a savage—and get bonus points by including a costume change, like Keke Palmer did in her viral video.

"Attention" Challenge

@charlidamelio

thanks @gemmah_ for the camera work

♬ Attention by Todrick Hall - xoprinceali

Dancers, do I have your attention? Because this TikTok challenge is tailor-made for all the bendy, leggy, crazy-flexible queens out there. Show off your whack-iest kicks and splits while dancing to "Attention" by our eternal fave, Todrick Hall.

"Supalonely" Dance

@addisonre

dc @zoifishh

♬ Supalonely (feat. Gus Dapperton) - BENEE

Doesn't the name say it all? If you're feeling "Supalonely" while stuck at home, spend some time learning this super-fun dance. Better yet, get your dance squad together via Zoom, and learn it as a group—"Supalonely" no more!

"The Renegade"

@charlidamelio

guys i would like to introduce you to @_.xoxlaii i am so happy that she was able to teach me the original choreography that she made she is the best!

♬ Lottery - K Camp

No TikTok roundup would be complete without the most iconic dance from the app. But you better be up for a challenge if you're planning to take on "The Renegade"—it's famously one of the hardest dances to learn, with quick, complicated choreo. (Then again...you've got nothing but time.)

"Dance is something that can truly connect people," Sienna tells Dance Spirit. "It's a universal language. We may not speak the same language physically, but when we dance, there's a connection where we understand each other on another level."
