Dancing is one of those forms of art that can truly move you. It can evoke emotion from happiness and joy to sadness and devastation. But sometimes? Dance can also just be straight fun!

Looks familiar but better

For those of you who remember Tom Cruise in Risky Business, he wore socks. As a result, he was able to slide across the floor seamlessly. Now, a video has surfaced that shows a woman doing the same…dancing in socks. And what she does on stage is beyond fantastic.

2020 Jamboree Ball

That’s the competition this woman participated in, which was held in Munich, Germany. She was in the solo division, performing to Bob Seger’s “Old Time Rock and Roll” just like in Risky Business. So far, more than 200,000 people around the world have now enjoyed this outstanding performance.

The unexpected

People in the audience expected to see someone take the stage in a fancy costume while wearing the appropriate dance shoes. Instead, this gal took her place on stage wearing white shorts, a white shirt, and white knee-high socks.

Capturing attention

That alone was enough for everyone to take note. Immediately after she walks out, the auditorium becomes silent. After all, her attire was unconventional so perhaps her dance would be too.

The right attitude

For someone to pull off a dance to this particular song, they better have a little bit of sass. And she did, well, actually, she had a whole lot of sass. It was perfect and the crowd loved it.

A huge advantage

With only socks on her feet, this woman was able to slide, spin, shake, and twist flawlessly. She’s got the hip moves down to fine art and utilized her hands to make the dance even more impressive.

Unbelievable talent

If you watch closely, you’ll notice she implements other dance styles in this rock and roll performance. You’ll see some ballet and jazz along with a little bit of contemporary. That just goes to show that she’s put in a lot of hard work to become so great.

With the music blaring, everyone is riveted by her performance. Since dancing in socks is unique, hopefully, it’ll inspire other young dancers to consider doing it.
