The Absolute Best of Todrick Hall's #NHHHChallenge

The music video for Todrick Hall's newest track, "Nails, Hair, Hips, Heels"—which [death-]dropped just in time for Pride Month—is the textbook definition of fierce. Todrick and his squad of 50+ dancers are an army of attitude, hitting gorgeous lines and strutting in sync (while wearing heels, no less). And after showing his followers how it's done, Todrick challenged them to learn the choreography themselves, using the hashtag #NHHHChallenge.

Friends, those followers DELIVERED. Check out this roundup of our favorite #NHHHChallenge posts. They don't play, they slay…


Harper Watters

Clap it out for clean lines and precision! We wouldn't expect anything less from this Queen Bee of ballet.

Joelle D'Fontaine

We love not only the hard-hitting choreo, but also the killer hype squad cheering these dancers on from the sidelines.

Marisha Wallace

What does this fabulous unicorn do when she's not waiting tables in London's West End? Pose, twirl, and snap for her life, of course.

Isa Sophia

I think we may have a winner.

So who's next to join in on the challenge? We nominate heels icon Yanis Marshall and Todrick's very own bestie, Taylor Swift!

    It's an increasingly common scenario: A talented dancer wins big at a competition, is offered an assistantship with a famous faculty member, and ends up leaving her hometown studio to travel with a convention. Convention-hopping has obvious benefits. Every event generates new content for dancers to post on social media, gives them a better shot at ending up on their favorite choreographers' accounts, lets them learn from the best of the best, and helps them make valuable connections. "Traveling is a great way for dancers to gain admirers around the country," says Jen Jarnot, owner of Artistic Fusion Dance Academy in Thornton, CO. "That's something every dancer craves." So it's no surprise that weekend FOMO has been blazing through studios like wildfire.

    But is this jet-setter lifestyle really the most effective road to take? Can weekends of dancing with top talent truly replace the bread and butter of daily work at your home studio? The answer, according to most industry experts, is no. We asked five pros to explain why.
