In case you haven't heard (but you have), "Step Up: High Water"—the brilliantly cast, fantastically dancy YouTube Red series based on the Step Up franchise—is returning for a second season. And while we still don't know exactly when round two will premiere, the show did just gift us an extremely tasty trailer.

There's nothing quite like the pain of a broken heart, or the deep feelings of unrequited love. Unfortunately, everyone at some time or another will find themselves dumped, heartbroken, insecure, and unsure about how to move on. Thankfully, though, dancers know of a healing balm that can lead the lonely through even the most difficult of times: movement.

Gigi and Bella Hadid are what most of us would call #blessed. I mean, they have a wardrobe even Barbie would envy. Turns out the supermodels are blessed in other ways too: They can actually dance. And those dancing chops are on full display in Vogue's latest fashion film called "Hadid! Hadid! Hadid!" In fact, the whole Hadid family breaks it down in the funny parody made to resemble the classic movie Beetlejuice. The clip starts with the Hadid's preparing to enjoy a family dinner, when suddenly Yolanda, Gigi, Bella, and Anwar release their inner dancing queens to Harry Belafonte's "The Banana Boat Song (Day-O)." They whip out everything from classic moves like the Egyptian to more trendy moves like flossing.

Kylie Shea is no stranger to showcasing her quirky take on ballet to the masses. The Instagram star continues to entertain us with her unconventional dance routines on pointe, be it on her social media platforms, in music videos, and even commercials. And her collaboration with the Canadian band MAGIC is one of our favorites yet. Dancing to their hit song "Expectations," Shea and the band's lead singer Nasri have a low key dance-off. The video starts out somewhat somber, but as things progress, Shea's sense of humor shines through—culminating with a fabulous scene that has her jiving in a tutu.

Once in a while, a dance film comes along that stops us right in our tracks. Andrew Winghart's latest project, "A Thousand Faces," does just that—and then some. Starring none other than the otherworldly Emma Portner, the film is an 8-minute tour de force.

Mendes breaking it down in The Chainsmokers' "Side Effects" video (via YouTube)

Sure, we've known for a bit now that Camila Mendes—aka Veronica Lodge on "Riverdale"—has some moves. (Exhibit A being, of course, the kind of epic Veronica/Cheryl dance battle that happened on the show last year.) But this month, Mendes has been taking her dancing up a notch in not one but two music videos that y'all need to watch right now.

Hi guys. Are you sick of #InMyFeelingsChallenge videos cluttering your feed? Has your Aunt Linda started asking you about "that dance Will Smith did on a bridge"? Is the whole meme starting to seem a bit...done?

Well, genius choreographer Kyle Hanagami just achieved the seemingly impossible: He made a video that got us feeling feelings about "In My Feelings" again.

How? By putting his dancers in inflatable dinosaur suits. OBVIOUSLY.

At the start of last night's episode, we had a Top 20—the number we thought was the goal heading into the live shows. But as we found out last week, this season, the judges actually want a Top 10. So five girls and five guys still had to go.

And last night, we started with the girls. Each of the Top 10 ladies was paired with an All Star from a past season (Lex is back! YAY!) for a duet outside their preferred style. How'd they all fare? Let's break it down.

"My comeback on 💯" (via YouTube)

We've always been impressed by Ciara's very legit dance skills. But for "Level Up," the first single she's released since 2015, the star decided to create a dance vid that is actually on another level.

How'd she do it? By recruiting choreographer extraordinaire Parris Goebel and her epic ReQuest Dance Crew. We knew "Level Up" was a banger from the second we first heard it, but by their powers combined, Ciara, Goebel, and the ReQuest dancers make it into an absolutely irresistible dance jam.

Happy Nationals season, everybody! It's that time of year when us lucky editors get to watch so, SO many gorgeous solos by dancers competing for big titles. But even among the insanely gifted artists at the top of the comp circuit, Tate McRae stands out. Just ask anyone who's seen the solo that helped her win Teen Best Dancer at The Dance Awards in Vegas last week.

Choreographed by Travis Wall (naturally), "Woman" is virtuosic both technically and artistically. Are the 180-degree extensions and fluid lyricism that captivated "So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation" audiences two years ago still there? Of course they are. But Tate also approaches the solo with a commitment and maturity that's rare in industry veterans, let alone 14-year-old students.
