If you’re into dance and want to get started with making use of it on the platform, here’s the easiest TikTok dance for you, in fact, a bunch of the easiest ones.

The “Something New” Dance

It was popularised by Kerrington Keyes, inspired by a Wiz Khalifa track. The challenge went viral in no time and has been created thousands of times on the platform. It got so popular that Wiz Khalifa had to join in and helped choreograph the original creator of the challenge. Here’s how you do it:

The “Blinding Lights” Challenge

This challenge is inspired by The Weekend’s music video “Blinding Lights” and was started by the user mac daddy. It uses aerobatics-style dancing and is easy on the eyes and to learn.

“Oh Na Na Na” Dance Challenge

You have to have a partner to nail this challenge. It isn’t as easy as those featured on the list — but it’s appealing and had Jimmy Fallon trying it for himself. Well, he had some help in the form of Charli D’Amelio, the TikTok princess, but we have one for you too.

Here’s how you can learn it today:

The “Say So” Dance

It was choreographed by Harley Sharpe and is based on the music video “Say So” by Doja Cat. It only uses a couple of simple hand gestures and is the easiest TikTok dance on the list. I reckon you start your dancing career on TikTok with this one because not only is it easy to master, but it is highly immersive. Here’s a video compilation teaching it to you:

“American Boy but Shibuya is There Too”

If you’ve been on TikTok long enough, chances are you’ve heard this quite a few times in dance and other videos.

This dance is a bit more intricate as in; you have to have your lower body make gestures in sync with your steps. It looks effortless on the eyes but would take some time to master. It’s still pretty much beginner-friendly, though.
