Let Tom Hiddleston Win Your Heart Through Song and Dance

You probably know British actor Tom Hiddleston as the villain Loki from Thor and The Avengers. Which means you're used to him looking something like this:

He's got that creepy evil guy thing down pat.

Well, prepare to get to know a very different, and very dance-y, side of Mr. Hiddleston.

The actor has been promoting Thor: The Dark World in Seoul, South Korea recently. And it's unclear exactly why, but for some reason he was inspired to bust out some serious moves on a Korean television show.

Here's the thing, though: He can really dance. Maybe it's just because he's decked out in a suit and tie in the clip, but I feel like Tom could give our friend Justin Timberlake a run for his money.

Oh, and later on the same show he also sang a rendition of Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror." So, if you're not already in love with him, this should do the trick:

How Project 21 Is Shaping the Next Generation of Competition-Dance Standouts

"I wish I had a better story about the name," says Molly Long, founder of the Orange County, CA–based dance studio Project 21. In truth, it's a play on the fact that she was born on the twenty-first of August, and 21 is her favorite number. "I was away on a teaching tour, the audition announcement was going live on Instagram the next day, and I desperately needed a name. Project 21 was just the least cheesy of the options I thought of!"

The fact that fans might expect the name to have some profound meaning speaks to the near-mythic status Project 21 has achieved on the competition and convention scene since its founding in 2014. Long's dancers are all wholly individual, yet jell seamlessly as a group, and are consistently snagging top prizes everywhere on the circuit. Each season brings a slew of new accolades, high-caliber faculty, and legions of devoted followers.

The industry has taken notice of the studio's unique ethos. "Molly gets through to her dancers in a special way, and they have this incomparable level of commitment to their craft as a result," says dancer and choreographer Billy Bell, who's worked closely with Long and her dancers. "That's what sets them apart—it's like a little dose of magic."
