The Biggest TikTok Dance Trends of 2022
Dancing took over the app shortly after its kickoff, leaving users with all sorts of TikTok dance trends to try out for themselves. From goofy moves that anyone could learn to more intense routines best for real dancers, there's a little something for everyone. Feel like making your own dancing video? Here are a few TikTok dances that have been trending so far this year.
Sean Paul and Keyshia Cole's smooth reggae hit "Give It Up to Me" is the perfect track for cutting loose, making it perfect for slower, vibier TikTok dance moves. The fun little number in this video by @isidora_villagra and @katteyes is all about rhythm, and since it's not too long, it won't be too tough to master its moves.

Blaque's "I'm Good" music video had some killer choreo when it dropped all the way back in 2003, and though the track may not be all over TikTok just yet, it feels like it'll only be a matter of time before it becomes a dance staple. @zoebaptistee, @cerise_x3 and @tamia.k2 joined forces to create these striking yet sleek dance moves to the underrated classic, demonstrating some new techniques we can't wait to learn ourselves.
@zoebaptistee you've all been killing mine and @cerise_x3 ♬ I'm Good (Radio Version) – Blaque
Back in the age before TikTok, only the songs with the most finesse got their own stylish dance moves—and Soulja Boy's "Crank That" was one of those special outliers, with its own choreography baked right into the song itself. The song came out in 2007, but TikTok has reignited its popularity, with new creators putting their own twist on the well-known song to give it new life.
Flo Rida and T-Pain's "Low" is another hit that never truly left us, and with the help of innovative TikTok dances, the song may be bigger than it ever was. The dance moves from its 2007 music video still hold up today and are definitely TikTok dance-worthy, but we love the unique spins new dancers have put on the song, from new ways to represent apple-bottom jeans and boots with fur, as well as moving along with the title and getting low, low, low.
@tamia.k2 New dance 😭@Zoe Baptiste ♬ original sound – lucia <3

'Trick'n' by Mullage
The chorus of "Trick'n" by Mullage makes way for a smooth combo of moves that will have all your friends grooving. It's not your average TikTok dance, mixing continual motion and a confident sense of swagger to create something entirely fresh. This crew is so in sync, even their clothes match.
@ririsimpsonAyeeee lookin like a whole girl group 😂🏽♬ trickn – ⭐️
'Cardboard Box' by FLO
If you have ever been inspired by Shakira to shake those hips, this dance to "Cardboard Box" by FLO is absolutely for you. We already know @jaedengomezz and @karaleighcannella slay at every dance, and in this sleek video, they recruited two more friends to show off how polished their whole squad is.
@jaedengomezz all I hear when this song plays is "to the left to the left 📦" DC: @jah.cuzzy ♬ Cardboard Box – Happi Remix – FLO
'Just Wanna Rock' by Lil Uzi Vert
If you know @drewjeeezy on TikTok, you're already well aware that he's an incredibly talented dancer. He's light on his toes, always dancing with the bros and keeping us entertained with every last video he shares. He came up with some fast-paced choreo for Lil Uzi Vert's song "Just Wanna Rock," and we can't get enough.

'Pon de Replay' by Rihanna
From fashion to makeup, romance and music, Rihanna really is the queen of everything, so it's no surprise that her upbeat song "Pon de Replay" is making the rounds on TikTok at the moment. Dancer @ckj_ckj came up with this brilliant dance to our fave song, and we know we're about to be seeing it everywhere.
'Super Freaky Girl' by Nicki Minaj
"Super Freaky Girl" by Nicki Minaj is such a fun song for anyone trying to show off their edgy side. Our girl @madsywadsy01 created a unique combination of moves for a fun and fast dance routine, and we look to none other than Charlie D'amelio and her boo, Landon Barker, to show off the dance.

This became a very popular dance ensemble over the course of the last several months. The original creator of the dance is featured in the video below, featuring a slow song that can be easier to learn from than most quick dance videos. Zach Lugo and Jean Victor create numerous dancing videos together, so if you don't want to stop with just one dance, scroll through either of their TikToks for inspiration.
@zacklugo Nothing will ever overcome this duo Dc: @Jean-Victor ♬ original sound – Reuben Snow
We love seeing celebs from different fame get together to film TikToks, especially when Lizzo's involved. During the Super Bowl this year, Noah Beck and Lizzo took a break from watching the game to dance it out, and this one is still going strong.
@noahbeck queen @lizzo ♬ Oui – God is good
Harry Styles' 'As it Was'
If you're a Harry Styles stan, you probably have "As it Was" (and the rest of Harry's House) playing on repeat as we speak. And, of course, TikTok can't get enough of it either. If you watch the video down below, you'll notice that it's one of those universal dances that can go to just about any song—but if you know the moves, why not dance them to Harry?
@maddybyrne13This song and this dance🤩🤩♬ best bridge to exist – jaz 💟
'Toxic' by Britney Spears
Britney Spears's music is totally classic, so it never truly fades away. The "Toxic x Pony" remix sound already has 2.6 million videos and counting as more people join the hype behind dancing TikToks.
'Wanna Be Startin' Something' by Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson's "Wanna Be Startin' Something" is back and better than ever. TikTokers are using this song's "ma-ma-se, ma-ma-sa, ma-ma-ko-ssa" mumbles, coordinating dance moves to each beat. Although we love our classic TikTokers Noah and Charli, we need to give @Fred dance credits for this one!

"About Damn Time" isn't just taking over dance TikTok, but the entire platform, and we'd honestly be shocked if you aren't already hearing it daily. If you are curious about how to dance to it, Lizzo herself broke down the entire thing to let her followers in on perfecting every last move.
