Who’s prepared to take part in an impromptu dance-off? No takers? I totally understand if you’re worried that you'd lose a virtual version of So You Think You Can Dance — but, honestly, that just means you need some old-fashioned practice! However, before you go getting your dancing pants all in a bunch, fret not — because I have the perfect dancing refresher course that will instantly make you a worthy opponent should someone challenge you to hit the floor... or, at least, it’ll make you feel like you're actual competition. Enter the best of Britney Spears dance moves, destined to transform any choreography-challenged individual into a bona fide dancing queen.
Now, when it comes to pop stars from the early 2000s, there's always been a pretty palpable rivalry between Spears and, of course, Christina Aguilera. However, it's definitely not impossible to enjoy both of them, and I'm not about to go ahead and compare the two talents — I came here to acknowledge Spears' ridiculous dancing skills, so that's what I'm going to do. No debates over who had the best dance moves here, guys!
So, since you never know when you're about to get served, prepare yourselves by groovin' to eight of Britney Spears' best dance moves:
The "...Baby One More Time" Two-Step
Thanks Britney, for giving me a go-to dance move for those times when my loneliness is killing me.
The "Oops! ...I Did It Again" Heart Move
Caution: Do not attempt to execute this move without wearing a red latex suit. For some reason, it's a more effective way to fake apologize for playing with someone's heart.
The "(You Drive Me) Crazy" Glide
Smoothest. Move. Ever.
The "Sometimes" Run
Sometimes I run, but it doesn't look quite like this.
The "Stronger" Chair Move
This entire video was filled with insane chair choreography, so props to Britney for making this move look so freakin' easy.
The "I'm a Slave 4 U" Belly Dancing
Honestly, every single move from this video deserves a spot on this list.
This Awesome Moment From "Me Against the Music ft. Madonna"
I have no words for how much I love this particular dance sequence. I spy Columbus Short in the background, so he definitely deserves the choreography credit. That likely contributed to Britney out-dancing Madonna, who pulled off some pretty impressive moves of her own.
