Taylor Swift Has Invented The Hottest New Dance Move

It's time to learn how to "Mom-Croon."

Posted on

Taylor Swift has become what some might call one of the most #iconic award show dancers of our time.

Mom-Croon (noun and verb): A dance move invented at the 2014 Grammy Awards. To sway, perform, and sing along to a song in an extremely emotional or sentimental way, possibly incorporating hand gestures. Eyes closed, lost in the music. The way your mom gets taken away by a tune from her high school days, glass of red wine in hand, shuffling around the room as her teenage kids roll their eyes in disdain.
Used in a sentence: "Oh look, Taylor's being embarrassing again — just mom-crooning away in the corner by herself because "Sometimes" by Britney Spears came on. Oh God. Now she's crying."
Cynics may judge the Mom-Crooners (MC's as they are commonly referred to in the dance world) as it is a form of dance only perfected by those willing to be absolutely swept away by the feels you get when you hear a certain song. Those who know how to Mom-Croon cannot see the eye-rolls of haters. They have reached a level of musical transcendence that is hater-proof. Once you perfect the Mom-Croon, you are truly free.

And now, a brief lesson in Mom-Crooning.

Step 1: Close your eyes.

Step 2: Sway and get lost in the music.

Step 3: Incorporate hand gestures.

Step 4: Transcend to a higher, hater-free level of consciousness.

Step 5: Be free.

Now go forth and Mom-Croon away. 🙏
