Whether you dance daily in front of the mirror or only bust a groove at weddings, dancing always has the ability to make you feel good. Not only is it fun, expressive and a great form of exercise, getting your body moving to the beat of good music also makes you smarter. Yet another reason to dust off those dancing shoes and get those feet moving. In celebration of International Dance Day, here are seven videos that show how fun dancing can be and that anyone can get involved anytime, anywhere. Enjoy!

1. THE PROFESSIONALS
Showing us all how it's done, some of the hottest dancers in the world go on a journey through the A-Z of Dance in this steamy clip filmed on the streets and rooftops of LA.

2. THE MOVIE STARS
This clip of 73 movie dance scenes all synchronized to The Pointer Sisters' "Neutron Dance" is sure to get you in the mood for dancing. Trust all your favorite Hollywood stars to make it look so easy.

3. THE YOUNG SPORTS FAN IN A CROWD
While all the Detroit Pistons fans featured on the team's Dance Cam have some good moves, one young fan stands out from the rest when he shows the crowd what he’s got. Hilarity ensues when the energetic youngster finds himself caught up in an impromptu dance-off with a Dancing Usher.

4. THE GRANDMA
A video of a grandma cooking in a kitchen doesn't sound that fascinating, but when that grandma is strutting her stuff to Vanilla Ice's "Ice, Ice Baby" it's hard not to fall in love with her. This grandma's smooth moves and care-free attitude are infectious.

5. THE YOUNG PRODIGY
At just 11 years old, Sean Lew steals the show during this performance of Lady Gaga's hit song "Applause" and makes the art of dancing look effortless. This young prodigy should get used to the sound of applause because he has a bright future as a crowd pleaser ahead of him.  

6. THE STREET PERFORMER AND THE COP

When street performer Marcqiese Marc challenged a police officer to a dance battle at a subway station in New York, he never imagined that he would be upstaged. It turns out that the cop had some serious moves and the onlooking crowd was treated to quite the show.

7. THE MOTHER AND SON
What starts out as a sophisticated, rather boring wedding dance between a mother and son turns into a full-on dance riot. Just when you think they've had enough, this energetic duo come back for more, much to the delight of the admiring guests.
