From the hip gyrations in “I’m a Slave 4 U” to the high-speed spins in “… Baby One More Time,” Britney Spears has had no shortage of epic dance videos. Now, with the upcoming release of her video for “Hold It Against Me,” the speculation surrounding what she’s going to bring to the table this time around is causing quite a buzz.
To get an idea of what we’ve got to look forward to in the “Hold It Against Me” video (which is being choreographed by Brian Friedman), we decided to take a look back at some of Brit’s best dance videos throughout the years and polled fans on Facebook to find out which ones they loved best. Check out the list below and then check out our video mash-up of Brit’s best dance moves, set to the pulsating beat of “Hold It Against Me.”
“Oops! … I Did It Again”
The video for “Oops” might have been less dance intensive than some of the others on this list, but it still had its share of catchy steps that we couldn’t help but try and replicate (over and over again).
“…Baby One More Time”
The one that started it all. “Baby” established Brit as a mega pop star with a killer set of moves and one seriously eye-catching school girl uniform.
Few performers can work an entire routine on and around a chair as well as Britney did in “Stronger,” so it deservingly nabs the number three spot.
After a short break, Britney came back in full force with the video for “Circus,” which had her hanging with elephants in tight costumes and splashing around a whip.
“I’m A Slave 4 U”
It comes as little surprise that “Slave,” one of Britney’s most elaborately choreographed videos, is the fan favorite. In the clip, Britney delivers some of her most iconic moves, all while sweat drips down her face. It’s the perfect combination of iconic dance steps and an incredible look.
