Immortalizing Elaine Benes’ full-bodied dry heave set to music, the Time Warp, and other signature moves from pop culture, Niege Borges Alves’ posters are amusing graphical breakdowns of famous dances. We first spotted our favorite ways to cut a rug on film and television over at Design You Trust. Alves’ Dancing Plague of 1518 series is named after the strange, real-life case of dancing mania that broke out in 16th century France. Some people fervently shook it for several weeks, and a few even died. Don’t let that bring you down, though. Put a smile back on your face by heading after the jump and looking at pop culture’s signature moves.
