Everybody knows that Taylor Swift is a giver.
She gives back to her fans, she gives to communities, she gives to those in need and, sometimes, she gives to people just for the heck of it. But there’s one thing that Swifty has bestowed on the world time and time again that doesn’t get nearly enough recognition: the gift of dance.
Award show after award show, the girl entertains us by shamelessly cutting a rug in the audience while her colleagues perform on stage. Swifty’s got more moves than a barrel of monkeys and it’s almost to the point that she needs to put a trademark on some of those gyrations, like she did with her lyrics.
We love how she has the confidence to always dance like nobody’s watching. It’s given us all these amazingly adorable dance moves.
1. The “Can I get an amen?”
Girlfriend could start a religious revival while raising the roof.
2. The rollin’ with the homies
We’re pretty sure Brittany Murphy would have given Swift two enthusiastic thumbs up.
3. The Jessica Rabbit
Can’t you totally see T-Swift as a swanky lounge performer?
4. The cancan
She just needs some extra ruffles on the bottom of that skirt.
5. The sock hop
Suddenly, we’re really wanting to ask the soda jerk to make us a chocolate malted milk.
6. The if you want my body and you think I’m sexy
It could be the hair or the disco-esque gold sparkles, but something about this move is totally reminiscent of Rod Stewart.
7. The “I’m a Slave for You”
Takin’ a page out of Britney Spears’ book on this one, Taylor?
8. The “Greased Lightning”
They’re going to go race cars in a dry riverbed under a bridge after the show is over.
9. The “Sexy and I Know It”
Because: Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle.
10. The Beatlemania
Something tells us Swift would have been front and center at one of their shows.
11. The mermaid
Swifty could totally play Daryl Hannah’s part in the inevitable reboot of the 1984 classic film, Splash.
12. The traffic conductor
Back that truck up, girl!
13. The mad dog
We wouldn’t want to meet this T-Swift incarnation in a dark alley!
14. The “9 to 5”
Because we can totally picture Swift saying, “Hey, guys, do you want to go get happy hour drinks after this?”
15. The monster mash
It was a graveyard smash.
16. The owl
17. The Midsummer Night’s Dream
Really, though, how could she not use those fairy wings?
18. The bouncy house
Swift looks like she’s having more fun than 20 5-year-olds at a birthday party.
19. The Chicago
Roxie Hart, anyone?
