Hannah Brown and Tyler Cameron are TikTok’s MVPs right now, by the way.
Step 3: Practice your dance moves (skip this step if you just want to post funny videos).
Little dance choreography moments are kind of all the rage right now. Can we pretend I didn’t just use the phrase “all the rage?” I feel like I’m getting less cool as this entire experiment goes on. Anyway, you want to come correct with your moves, so when you find a dance TikTok you want to try, don’t half-ass it.
Here, start with one you already know. Ashley Tisdale has officially brought back those High School Musical moves:
If you think you’re more advanced than that, J.Lo posted a dance challenge of her own and supermodel Jasmine Tookes spent an entire night getting the moves down before taking part:
We respect the commitment.
Step 4: Make your TikTok
This is actually so much easier than you probably think.
@Jera.Bean is probably the best person to follow if you want to learn how to make different kinds of TikToks. There are tons of types of videos on this app—from choreo challenges to slide-shows to viral memes that require particular editing techniques (all which you CAN master, promise). It would take a lot more than one post to go through them all, so let’s start with a basic edit:
Get someone to record you OR set up a tripod for your phone.
Select the track you want to use.
Hit “use this sound.”
Select “Timer” from the list of tools on the right (they’re labeled clearly enough).
Choose the section of the song that you want to record and use the countdown to get into the frame.
Once you’re done, hit the timer again and select the next section of the song.

Am I cool now? I think I’m cool now.
