Austin deserves a dance break: .Gifs of our favorite SXSW 2018 dancers

It’s been a very rough month in the capital city of Texas and we deserve a dance break. Here are some .gifs of our favorite dancers at SXSW.

Amara La Negra. We saw plenty of fantastic dancers during SXSW, but no one put better moves to her grooves than the “Love & Hip Hop Miami” Star.

Her whole team was fire, but this dude…

I mean, THIS DUDE…

And throughout the performance, the booty was in full effect.

Tinashe. The 25-year-old ‘s dance team lit a fire behind her blunted R&B.

Yeah, they were smoky.

Pussy Riot. We don’t know exactly what to call these moves, but we’re pretty sure Pussy Riot’s performance was the Russian protest punk version of  bringing “da Ruckus.”

Oshun. With lyrically incisive rhymes woven with entrancing soul, the NYC duo showed us the next generation’s New Jack Swing.

And it felt so good.

Meow Wolf. The immersive art collective from New Mexico created the weirdest dance party of the fest.

Tameca Jones. Finally,  we can’t sleep on the home team. The Queen of Austin Soul can shake it with the best of them.
