Tate McRae is a rising star in the music world, but did you know that she has a background in dance?
The 17-year-old singer had a huge breakout this year with “you broke me first,” but she already broke out years ago while competing on So You Think You Can Dance at the age of 13.
So, what does Tate think of all the latest TikTok dance trends? She opened up in the latest episode of the Spout podcast!
“Okay, here’s the biggest thing. I think Tiktok dances are super fun and I like, I do them too. I think they’re fun and I do them with my friends and it’s like a cute challenge. I think it’s like really cool. But I do hate when people say this is dancing because it’s not,” Tate said.
She continued, “Because it’s like, you know, dancers train. It’s like saying you’re a gymnast and you can’t do back flips and all these like crazy things. It’s like, as a dancer, you train your whole life to the technical and to have all these different techniques and you know, it was a lot of hard work and I think Tiktok moves are like, what? Like my parents do them. It’s like party dancing.”
Tate did admit that some of the dances are harder than they look!
