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.

How many times have you seen a music video that was so amazing that you and your friends wanted to recreate it? And how many times have you actually spent the time and effort to learn the choreography and actually film it? TBH, we've all been inspired by a catchy tune that's paired with some great choreo and cool cinematography. Some of us may even have actual footage of such embarrassing attempts buried deep in the archives of our phones. But four girls from Thailand, did what most of us mere mortals only dream about. They flawlessly recreated one of their favorite band's music videos—and broke the internet in the process.

What's better then a Disney movie remake? The answer: A Disney movie remake in the form of a musical! Disney Channel's giving the 2003 hit comedy "Freaky Friday" a reboot with all the singing and dancing your heart could ever desire. But choreographing the remake of a classic Disney-movie-turned-TV-musical is no joke, which is why two-time Tony nominee John Carrafa was the perfect man for the job. Known for incorporating real life, everyday movement into his dances, Carrafa brings magic into even the most mundane of movements. From having dancers "slice oranges to the rhythm of the music" to using energetic athleticism, Carrafa's choreography is bound to bring an exciting new spin to this tale.

It's August—the sun is shining, summer intensives are winding down, and Nutcracker seems very far away. But this new trailer for Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is already getting us in the holiday mood. While this modern take on the classic holiday story, in theaters November 2, is not a dance film, it does include mega-stars Misty Copeland and Sergei Polunin as the Ballerina Princess and Nutcracker Prince.

It's no secret that we're kind of obsessed with the new-ish boy band on the block, PRETTYMUCH. And why shouldn't we be? These boys don't just carry a tune, they can also groove to the beat—and despite the high bar the Backstreet Boys set back in the day with their super dancy music videos, it's not super common these days. What's even more unique is boy bands collaborating with some of the best choreographers in the business. Enter, Ian Eastwood. The dance phenom has been working with the boys on a number of different projects, including their latest release "Summer on You."

Ballet legend David Hallberg and hip-hop dancer Metter Towley may seem like an unlikely pair, especially on the dance floor—but Revlon's new "Lash Loudly" mascara campaign proves otherwise. The ad features Hallberg and Towley as they freestyle to the song "Flava" by Princess Nokia. And surprisingly, the contrasts between these two dancers and their dance genres actually compliments their individuality on and off the dance floor.

We always love dance-infused music videos, but the vid for Ryan Blyth's new hit "Raise A Glass" is on a whole different level. Why? Because it stars none other than Amanda LaCount, the dance maverick who's challenging preconceptions on and off the dance floor with her beautiful curves and her message of #breakingthestereotype. Not only does Amanda deliver a fabulously high-energy performance, but she also appears to have choreographed the number (is there anything this dancing dynamo can't do?).

Ukrainian ballet dancer Sergei Polunin doesn't appear to have completely shed his bad-boy skin. A new video from Rankin Hunger Magazine, "Sergei x Rankin," shows us what happens when Polunin is given total freedom to explore his tendency for raw, emotional movement. Paired with British photographer Rankin, the duo creates a captivating video that explores our primal need for unrestrained expression set to an alternative rock soundtrack by Husky Loops.

There are do-it-all dancers, and then there's New York City Ballet principal Tiler Peck. When she's not on stage with the company, Peck keeps her schedule packed designing leotards for Body Wrappers, appearing in cool side gigs like music videos or on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show"), and performing in festivals and programs around the world. Casual.

While curating and performing in last summer's BalletNOW program at Los Angeles' Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Peck added two more tasks to her schedule: Be the subject and one of the producers of her very own documentary, Ballet Now.

We're used to seeing Maddie Ziegler own the room whenever she steps on the dance floor. So the idea of her learning a dance routine from Instagram star, Everleigh Soutas initially seemed a little backwards. Then we found out that Everleigh's original performance of this solo earned her first place in her division, at Revolution Talent Competition—and that it's garnered over 12 million views on YouTube—and the pair's duet makes a lot more sense. Maddie even compliments the pint-size dancer's energy and facial expressions. High praise coming from the queen of dance prodigies!
