The Ultimate High School Dance-Off

Solo, coupled up, or choreographed - teens have been notoriously burning up dance floors for ages now. Let these vets show you how, and then see how a new class handles the gymnasium hardwood on IFC’s new series Out There, Fridays at 10/9c - and catch a full episode here.

2. But first, let’s get ready.

That’s, like… the BEST part.

3. Make sure you don’t get caught rehearsing.

4. And be patient with your friends that are way more stoked than you.

5. As soon as the floor gets flooded…

6. And the band is kicking…

7. Start with warming up the arms.

9. Even the lower back.

10. Don’t bumble and be shy…

11. Just take a step in the dance direction.

12. Don’t panic if you don’t think you have it in you.

13. Just hit the floor with a funky friend.

14. Because before you know it, you’ll be absolutely busting out.

15. And soon everyone will want to join in.

16. Even from the “cheap seats.”

17. Just as you start hitting it off…

18. PAUSE. CREEPER ALERT.

19. Just charm your way right outta that weird wedge.

20. And hop right back into action.

21. As soon as you and your partner start to get a little wild…

22. Everyone else will want to be on the same wavelength.

23. And even see how low they can go.

24. And strut harder than they ever thought possible.

25. Congratulations, you now officially own the dance floor.

26. … don’t forget to compliment your date.

28. See Chad and Chris handle the dance floor on “Out There” - Fridays at 10/9c on IFC.
