Gifs to Inspire Your Next Summer Dance Bash

Maybe we’ve watched Beach Party a few too many times, but we think there’s no better complement to sunshine, waves, and a cute new summer outfit than a groovy dance party. You’re thinking, “sure, I’d love to join in the fun, but I’m no Annette Funicello!” Fear not, friend — we’ve collected a slew of inspiring gifs and tips to help you get set to shake it at your next bash!

or you suddenly find yourself doing a solo performance.


No matter! Dancing, like style, is all about you doing you, for your own happiness. Sorry, to all the haters, creeps, and negative Nancys out there — you’re not welcome on this dance floor.


So, gather your friends, get out there…


and own it!
