Taylor Swift's New Video is Dancy Pastel Perfection

"We promise that you'll never find another [music video] like thi-i-IS!" Sorry not sorry, because all of us Swifties at Dance Spirit have waited a long year and a half for new T-Swift music—which, naturally, brings with it a new choreographic style for the princess of pop.

All she cares about is pantsuit poweeeeeeeeer! (Giphy)

The music video for "ME!"—the song we can only assume is the lead single for Ms. Swift's upcoming seventh (!!) album—trades in Reputation's hard-edged, menacing glamour for a lewk we can only describe as "the city of Paris [or is it London?!], but make it an Instagram museum by covering everything in gallons of pastel rainbow paint."

Anyone else getting major "Wizard of Oz" vibes here? (Giphy)

The four-minute vid (choreographed by Tyce Diorio) features a whole crew of longtime Swift dancers, including Giuseppe Giofre, Nadine Olmo, Gracie Stewart, Jake Landgrebe, Eliotte Nicole, and Christian Owens. Wearing Easter-egg pantsuits and swingin' 60s looks, the dancers, Swift, and Brendon Urie (of long-running pop outfit Panic! At the Disco) all get down with a healthy mixture of marching-band precision, exuberant classic jazz, and Hairspray-esque pony'ing.

Serious question: Why did Brendon Urie never get cast as Link Larkin in "Hairspray"?! (Giphy)

So get into it, before the inevitable deluge of class videos set to this absolute bop. ☔️🌈

But how can you dance safely and productively in the great outdoors? We got pro tips from Mike Tyus of Jacob Jonas The Company and Xin Ying of Martha Graham Dance Company, both of whom were dancing outside long before COVID-19 hit.
