    The 20 Most Awkward Dance Moves From The New "One Life To Live"

    The web-based reboot of the long-running soap opera premiered this week.

    The ABC soap opera One Life To Live premiered in 1968 and was cancelled in 2012, but has just been revived as a web series; the first episode premiered Monday on Hulu and iTunes.

    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.
