Get Your Mom Dance On

February 24, 2013

We’re huge fans of Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign. And when the First Lady combines her passion for physical activity with her undying support of the arts, there’s usually some super-dance-y amazingness. Throw Jimmy Fallon (in mom drag!) into the mix and what do you get? The evolution of the “mom dance.”

What’s “mom dance” you ask? Let us, er, Jimmy and Michelle, show you.

You start off nice and slow—just like you’re walking down the aisle at the supermarket. You can do that, right?

Then, grab a friend for a little hip bump action.

And let’s not forget one of my personal faves, the “Happy Snapper.” You’ve gotta snap it—snap it good!

No dance would be complete without a little “Single Ladies” action—but only the hand flip. If you’re feeling really advanced, add a few hip rolls.

You know the “OMG! Best. Song. Ever!” feeling? Yeah, dance it out.

And for the grand finale? Wrap things up with Dougie. (Looks like Jimmy needs the First Lady to teach him how to Dougie.)

Now that you know a few of the steps…Cue music!

Looks pretty awesome, right? Grab your mom (and dad!) and get moving! And be sure to let us know how it goes in the comments below!
