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.
So if you're struggling, go to the studio. Create some mood lighting, turn on an emotional (or super empowering) song and improv your heart out. And then, when you've poured yourself onto the dance floor, pick up your phone and watch these 10 dance videos that are sure to help you feel all the feels of this difficult time.
You got this! Be strong. 💪
"A Breakup Story" - Choreographed by Talia Favia, performed by Courtney Schwartz and Chaz Buzan
This viral video from 2015 will never stop being relevant. It just so perfectly captures what it feels like to watch a relationship fall apart. Plus, James Bay's voice is straight butter. Now all we need is some popcorn because we'll be watching this over and over again for the next ten hours.
"Don't Wanna Think" - Choreographed by Tessandra Chaves, performed by Zack Everhart and Ashley Gonzales
This past summer "World of Dance" gave us a lot of fabulous dance videos to binge-watch, and this piece is one of our faves. Think of it as a reminder not to text your ex.
"Trust My Lonely" - Choreographed by Jojo Gomez, performed by Gomez, Kaycee Rice, Sean Lew, and Bailey Sok.
Yassss! You're a gem and you don't need no man or woman to complete you. The dancers in this combo are LIVING and it's everything. You're welcome.
"Total Eclipse Of The Heart" - Choreographed by Mandy Moore, performed by Melanie Moore and Neil Haskell
The passion! The drama! "So You Think You Can Dance" does it again. We're not crying, we're fineee.
"It's On Me" - Choreographed by Alexa Moffit, performed by Carter Williams and Brightyn Brems
Watch this one when you're feeling confused about what happened and really need to wallow. We're not sure how such tiny humans can so accurately convey heartbreak, but they nailed it, and all we can say is brava!
"Dreaming With A Broken Heart" - Choreographed by Mia Michaels, performed by tWitch and Kherington Payne
Arguably one of the most classic "SYTYCD" pieces of all time. The dancing is gorgeous, the use of props is stellar, and the emotion is raw. Get out the tissues!
