Iconic Dance Moments You Know You’ve Tried To Recreate

Certain pop culture moments just stay with you after you’ve seen them. They’re not necessarily the best scenes from movies or television or music videos, but for whatever reason they’ve stuck with you over the years. Any of these scenes might’ve been part of your childhood experience or remind you of a certain point in your life. Maybe you’ve watched them over and over… maybe you and your friends tried to reenact them. (If you haven’t tried to recreate at least one of these moments then you probably at least wish you had.)

These are some of my iconic pop culture dance moments. If you’re near my age, you’ve probably done at least one of the things on this list.

How I Met Your Mother’s Best Dance Moments

On this past Monday night, the series finale of How I Met Your Mother aired on CBS. The ending was a mix of nostalgia, sadness and laughs… Many fans came away with mixed feelings about the final episode, but even a lukewarm finale can’t undo the nine awesome years we’ve spent with Barney, Robin, Marshall, Lily and Ted.

In honor of the show’s farewell, here’s a look back at some of the best, funniest and most memorable dance moments of the last nine seasons.
