Shakira Dropped a Champeta Dance Tutorial, So You Can Copy Her Super Bowl Moves
When I watched Shakira’s powerful Super Bowl halftime performance, a thought crossed my mind: “I wish I could move like that.” Well, lucky for me, and anyone else who wants honest hips, the “She Wolf” singer dropped a dance tutorial on Feb. 4 to help fans learn choreography – the champeta, specifically.
Champeta is a dance form that originated in Shakira’s home country of Colombia, before expanding across the Caribbean. During the halftime show, the singer led a massive group of dancers through the traditional moves in unison, impressing the audience at the stadium and at home. On her YouTube channel, Links”>Shakira handed the reigns over to her 18-year-old choreographer, Liz Dany Campo Diaz, for a detailed breakdown of the dance that any level of dancer can copy. Watch the full tutorial above, and get ready to channel Shakira’s energy through a halftime-inspired workout playlist too.
The “Mona Cut” Is the Angled Bob Haircut Trend Taking Over Your Instagram Feed
I can always count on my Instagram feed to help me stumble upon a hair trend or moment that stops me dead in my tracks and often leads me down a rabbit hole. First it was the knotless box braids that practically took over last year, and now it’s the geometric curly bob haircut that may or may not just inspire my next trip to the salon.
The style in question, also known as the “Mona Cut,” is somewhat of a signature of New York City-based stylist Mona Baltazar. Baltazar has become well-known on social media for the magic she’s worked on curly-haired women around the city, and her mission, as it states on her website and Instagram page, is to enhance the beauty of curly hair by shaping the manes of those who regularly sit in her chair in unique silhouettes and shapes.
Take a look at some of Baltazar’s work ahead, and just try not to feel inspired to book your next appointment immediately.

In the now-viral video that’s making its rounds on Facebook, Jude’s mom, Katie, caught her son’s on-point performance in his school’s talent show. And in a matter of 24 hours, the clip utterly took off. What can we say? Jude absolutely nailed the choreography. According to Katie, she and her husband had no idea that Jude had a plan up his sleeve.
“Jude actually learned [the dance] from watching YouTube videos,” she told POPSUGAR. “He taught it to himself and surprised us when he asked if he could sign up for his school talent show. He showed us before he performed it for his classmates. Jude is a very talented kid and loves making people smile!”
The hilarious video has racked up 853,000 views so far. Watch until the end to appreciate the moves that captured our hearts 16 years ago!
