Ah, the magic of movies. With a touch of CGI here, a clever cut there, movies can turn any regular Joe into a superhero, talking raccoon or creepy space alien. But there’s just a couple things that can’t be faked, dancing is one of them.
Earlier this week, we pulled together 10 charming videos of celebs dancing like dorks. Now, let us present to you a quick list of our favourite celebs who can dance — actually.
1. Zac Efron
With movies like the raunchy Neighbors and man-rom-com That Awkward Moment, it’s no secret that Zac Efron is still trying to distance himself from musicals. We get that he doesn’t want to pigeonhole himself, but would it kill him to throw in one dance number somewhere?! Zac has moves for days and it’s obvious that he enjoys dancing. Just look at that grin! It could light up millions of homes!
2. Channing Tatum
Thank you, Channing Tatum, for being apart of Magic Mike, a movie loosely based on your male stripper past. If it wasn’t for you, we would have never had the opportunity to watch you strip to Ginuwine’s “Pony.” We’re still trying to scrape our jaws off the floor.
3. Jenna Dewan-Tatum
Remember when you first watched Step Up and thought, “wow, that break dancer dude and that ballerina are an adorable couple?” Of course you did, and now you can proudly say you watched a famous couple fall in love on screen. So take a page from Jenna and Channing, and fall in love with the next dancing, adorable fool you see.
4. Vin Diesel
It’s been decades since this video of a young, hairy Vin Diesel breakdancing was filmed. Sadly, we don’t get many chances to see the now-buff Diesel pop and lock these days. Maybe it’s about time for a musical? Maybe with Zac Efron? Just a suggestion.
5. Michael Fassbender
We know: there are a number of other celebrities who can dance. Zoe Saldana, Jamie Bell, Jamie Fox, Julianne Hough, Selena Gomez… the list goes on.
We just couldn’t resist sharing this video of Michael Fassbender dancing in the movie Wedding Belles. Look at the red shoes! Look at him grooving the music! JUST LOOK AT THAT HANDSOME SHARK.
