Looking for a good spot to film your next TikTok dance routine? Well, don’t head to Amsterdam. (Just kidding. 😉) The city recently ranked as the 7th most danceable TikTok city, and let’s just say we don’t know how to feel about that…
Not that the infamous app really requires an introduction, but TikTok is a world-famous Chinese-owned social media app where people post short-form videos (between 15 and 60 seconds).
Everyone seems to have an account, including us. (But no, we’re not the ones contributing to the dancing epidemic! 👀)
According to data published by Holidu, TikTokkers are taking Amsterdam by storm — propelling the city to 7th place on the list of TikTok’s most danceable cities.
The same platform responsible for providing us with supposedly “infectious” dance routines also specialises in those catchy, nameless sound bites that live in your head rent-free.
Garnering nearly 3 billion views, the genre #ElectronicMusic is apparently very popular on TikTok, and that’s certainly something Dutch DJs can offer.
With its raves and festivals, Amsterdam already has a bit of a reputation for danceability — so much so that last year TikTok decided to partner with the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE).
Garnering nearly 3 billion views, the genre #ElectronicMusic is apparently very popular, and that’s certainly something Dutch DJs can offer.
However, the dances are not limited to the inside of ADE. In true TikTok fashion, amateur and professional dancers alike often take to the street to show off their moves.
While TikTok users in Barcelona have backdrops like the beach and “colourful buildings”, Parisians are prancing in front of the Eiffel Tower, and Amsterdam-based creators seem to choose the outside of Centraal Station, or someplace dangerously close to a canal’s edge.
@orokanaworld Dancing in public is always fun, there is always someone in the back trying to do the most 😂 #orokanaworld #amsterdam #dancinginpublic ♬ Tas – REANNY
Well, if those places aren’t typisch Nederlands, we don’t know what is.

Amsterdam may need to crank up those views if we want to beat Porto…but, then again, do we really want to? 😬
