Video: There's no better way to forget a bad year than a bit of amnesia, but since you can't just order that up these days the next best thing is to dance your butt off to memories of better times. And since there's no time people pretend were the best of times like the 1990's, enjoy watching actors and actresses get their groove on in this dancing compilation from Robert Jones. It's fun.

Video: A lot of questionable sports have become official Olympic events over the years. Golf? Trampoline? That one where people just run in a straight line for 100m? Ridiculous. But synchronised dancing inside one of those indoor skydiving wind tunnels? That should headline the 2020 games in Tokyo, assuming anyone makes it out of Rio alive.
Video: The week is over so it's time to start getting loose for the weekend, and watching this '80s movie mashup of people dancing by Robert Jones is just how you want to do it. If you're old enough to remember watching these movies, awesome, because it will encourage you to bathe in nostalgia and watch them all again (or frustrate you because you can't remember what movie some scenes are from).
In an attempt to design robots that are as simple as possible, David Zarrouk's latest mechanical creation takes its inspiration from a funky '80s dance move known as the worm. Using just a single motor it's able to scoot across the floor by undulating its flexible body up and down, which also allows it to swim, and even climb narrow spaces.
Video: Drones are already a fantastic tool for capturing footage. But when the cameras are turned on the flying drones themselves, they prove to be equally spectacular performers as part of this Japanese multimedia dance troupe called Elevenplay. They also never miss a performance and don't need dressing rooms, so how long before their human co-performers are made completely obsolete?
You might get a seizure if you watch Ian Eastwood dance too much in this video, but it's so damn cool that it might even be worth it. It's neat because he blends the view of him dancing while he's facing us with another view of him dancing with his back turned. The two opposing views are spliced together and he's doing the same impeccable dance in each — which basically makes you feel like you're doing drugs, because you don't know exactly which angle of him you're watching.
Forgive me, but I think it's plausible that these two guys are actually the first mutants in the world, because the way they move so easily around this Chinese pole makes it seem like they have magnetic superpowers or access to an invisible wall. They can flip, slide, stop, walk on nothing, and do things I can't even do on solid ground, all while mid-air on the pole. I can't imagine that they're just human like me and are just simply stronger from lots of practice and hard work. That can't be.
Video: Watch as these diabolos get spun and twirled in the air like they're being controlled by some sort of sorcery and not at the mercy of gravity. That's how good ChihHan Chao, 2015 Red Bull PAO champion, is at using the hand sticks to juggle these wild yo-yos. He's making the discs dance and tossing them back and forth with such flair that it's like they're floating orbs moving around him.
