Duration: 1 hour

Robert Webb hosts a top 50 countdown of the hippest, sexiest, quirkiest and campest dance crazes of the last 40 years.

Relive guiltiest pleasures, celebrate fast-footed heroes and scorn those annoying ones you thought were forgotten in a fun-filled romp through the archives.

Dance master Webb takes viewers by the hand and leads them to the dance floor to find out what the biggest and best dance crazes of all time are. What turns a simple bit of choreography into a worldwide phenomenon? What do Single Ladies, Thriller, Vogue, Oops Upside Your Head and the Macarena have that the Birdie Song and the Ketchup Song do not?

Featuring interviews with Melanie C, Louie Spence, Rufus Hound, Bradley Macintosh, Katy Brand, Craig Revel Horwood, Richard O'Brien, MC Hammer, Carl Douglas, the Village People, Jarvis Cocker, Suggs, Andrew Stone, Shappi Khorsandi, Lisa Scott Lee and Whigfield.

They get under the skin of where the moves originated, how they became a sensation, and - crucially for all dance-floor show-offs - how to recreate them.
