The weather is getting warmer, days are getting longer, flowers are blooming and everyone is buzzing about with spring fever. Just take a look outside of your window and you’re sure to see animals of all kinds in the midst of spring fever. Whether showcasing their mating dances or giving birth to offspring, ’tis the time for spring flings. We aren’t the only ones who like to dance. Have a look at these funny, charming videos of animals showing off their best dance moves, signaling the arrival of spring and the hope of securing a mate!
Although we tend to think of birds as the primary animals that perform mating dances, there are countless other creatures in the animal kingdom that use flashy moves and fancy footwork to attract a mate, thereby better ensuring their own survival.

Not only does the bower bird dance for his potential partner, but he is also expected to decorate his bachelor pad with whatever he can find strewn about (typically items stolen from nearby picnickers, and ideally, blue in color, as the females are most drawn to this shade)!
As nature shows us, whether you’re a beginner or a pro, are smooth on your feet or have two left feet, there’s always a reason to get out there, strut your stuff and dance!
