  • TikTok’s ‘phone ya’ dance is so easy, a Millennial could do it

    A new dance challenge is taking over TikTok and it's super easy for a change. The 'phone ya' dance trend is fun, playful choreography that doesn't require much expertise. The dance was created by @claudiajeanbass using a remix of Missy Elliott's "Work It”. "OK, I thought this sound was cute, lolz," @claudiajeanbass wrote in the caption. After Missy Elliott says, "phone ya," and you hear the dial tone, pretend one hand is a phone and press the buttons with the other hand. Then do spirit fingers in an upward motion and clap your hands together. Finish it off by rotating your hips or transitioning into your favorite dance move. TikToker @userdan331 skipped the spirit fingers and just leaned into the groove. Instead of clapping, he made a slapping gesture with one hand. But @l1an4_ took things to the next level with an assist from her pet bird. She used the bird as a phone, tossed it in the air and then it landed on her head in perfect time with the music. Not everyone uses the "phone ya" sound the same, however. User @jordannpowell created a transition with it, to go from looking unassuming to totally punk
