We are loving this body positive blogger’s infectiously delightful belly dance
Even though it’s technically only one week into the New Year, it’s already felt like such a long time. So much has happened between getting back into the swing of work, school, or what have you. Regardless of what’s going on with you, we can all agree, we always need a little more joy in our lives. Enter Megan Jayne Crabbe, British body-positive activist and excellent dancer! Let her rocking out to Beyoncé in underwear banish your winter blahs and inspire you to get on your feet.
Seriously, go watch her. That level of happiness is seriously infectious!
Crabbe’s caption reads:
"I thought we could probably use some joyful jiggling in our lives right now so it's #DONTHATETHESHAKE TIME! REMEMBER: your body is so worthy of love in all the shapes that movement creates. Your wiggle is wonderful! Your squish is spectacular! OWN YOUR JIGGLE MY BOPO BABES! Anyone can join the #donthatetheshake party and celebrate their jelly - it isn't about being a great dancer or looking super cool, it's just about moving with joy and finding love for our bods outside of a still picture frame! So if you feel up for it, GET SHAKING! And check out #donthatetheshake for more!"
We seriously love everything about this video. Megan’s smile lights up the entire room! It’s seriously impossible to watch her and not want to jump right up with her. Her pastel rainbow hair and her cute underwear are seriously on point. (Which is true in her other Insta photos, too!)
Add to that how much genuine fun she’s having dancing around to her room to the music of one our fave feminist/body positive faves Beyoncé, and this adds up to be such an amazing video.
So thank you, Megan! We all really needed that! Hope you keep dancing into the New Year!
