Medical professionals around the world are hitting up TikTok to participate in viral dance challenges.

It’s official. STEM + health professionals know how to dance.

When they’re not being total heroes and tackling COVID-19 from the frontline, doctors, nurses and paramedics are suiting up in scrubs and swag to dance and lip-sync on socials.

Tackling viral TikTok challenges on the job like #Leanwithitrockwithit, #LevelUp and #footshake, the clips show solidarity and smiles during particularly demanding shifts.

“We do our best to remain optimistic (hence our dancing),” writes @tjuh_pool – a group of nurses based out of the Jefferson Health Centre – under their latest post.

“That doesn’t mean that we don’t have fears and anxieties. However, we choose not to be defined by them.”

“We put our own health, and our families health at risk each day,” adds insta-famous nurse @brightnpeachy who led her department in a flawlessly choreographed #onehandtwohands challenge.

“On our breaks from busting coronavirus, we bust moves and it’s a much-needed outlet to lift our spirits.”

So, you think you can dance?

We’ve rounded up some of the coolest TikToks to come out of hospitals in the last few weeks, and now we’re in even more awe of our STEM + health professionals.
