Just like everybody else. the OG dances got us into the TikTok craze! We had so much fun doing them as sanity breaks while working in our HQ, we even put on our fave hats and accessories in the office! Even your friends who aren’t into TikTok will surely get on the platform and have a blast once they try doing these dances! What better way to show them the new platform you love by getting to know the best and biggest trends so far? Here are a few of our faves!

     Renegade - Wanna start your TikTok game strong? This dance is the most popular of all, but fair warning: this OG challenge is pretty difficult! You’ve got all the time in the world right now, so practice away and show everyone those moves! And if you’re needing help like some of us, here’s a tutorial!

     Say So - this song was just way too catchy to pass up, and our team got addicted to it completely! The dance isn’t all that complicated, you can get it within a few tries. If that’s not enough, queen Doja Cat had another trending song on the platform right now, so give Say So a go then jump into her next hit Like That right after! No tutorials needed for these ones, they’re super easy!

The singer @meghantheestallion is on tiktok herself and you can check out her version of the dance too, apart from celebs JLo and Jessica Alba! Crediting who made the dance is important on Tiktok too, so don’t forget to tag them. The Savage dance was made by the equally sassy girl Keara Wilson - follow her here!

Before you strangle each other at home, do something fun like a dance together to bond as a family or whoever you’re on lockdown with! It’s best to keep it simple so everyone can keep up (although dads on tiktok are the funniest, too!). You can also do this with your friends when the lockdown is over!

    Something New - This one just has 3 moves so everyone can get this dance down for sure! It’s an easy left-right-shimmy so nobody in your house has an excuse to pass it up. Drag the fam to the yard and get it!

    Out West - here’s another simple dance you can do at home with your folks! It has slightly more moves but convince them to give it a go! Here’s! Madison Beer with her dad doing the dance!

If you’re thinking about trying tiktok, we suggest you just go for it! Don’t think about it too much - that’s the beauty of the platform. Also, don’t forget to add the hashtags #foryoupage and #fyp for more visibilty! Let your #nofilter self shine and tag us - we love seeing you guys bust out your Blackbough and show those moves!
