The new OLTL has the same characters, played by the same actors. But the best part of the new episodes may just be the dance moves. The first episode is full of them, as the action centers around the opening of Llanview, Pennsylvania’s hottest new club, Shelter. (In the original, the dancing action took place at a club called Capricorn; Shelter is basically a remodeled version.)
Here are the top 20.
