Looking for things to do at home?
If you’re feeling bored or want a change of routine while staying safe at home, how about learning a viral dance?
Millions of people are on the popular app TikTok scrolling through countless entertainment videos. The app is so addicting! It’s one of the most popular, trending and fastest-growing social media platforms in the world and if you remember Vine, it’s sort of the same concept in which people create short videos.
One of the popular trends on the app is these dance challenges which are like 15-20 seconds long but can take time to learn and several attempts to get it right, which is worth it because you’ll get your body moving and learn something new! Get inspired by checking out some of the popular dances below.
The Shoofha challenge is basically from the Shoofha song by Bahraini artists Daffy and Flipperachi. In the music video, they do this fun choreography and this challenge is a rendition of that. It’s a really fun one to learn!
It was first posted by @jalaiah, the dance is made to the song Lottery by K Camp and it’s by far probably the most popular dance on TikTok.
