turn down for what

Now that the “bomb cyclone” is over, many of us have big plans to hit up the club this weekend — but we aren’t quite sure what dance moves we should whip out. Thankfully, we can turn to New York–based figure skater Jimmy Ma for inspiration.

At the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in San Jose, California, on Thursday night, Ma skated to “Turn Down for What” by DJ Snake and Lil Jon. He brought down the house (well, arena) with twists and twirls and jumpy things and other figure skating moves (technical names unknown) (by me).

“We kind of wanted to make something that had a lot of excitement,” Ma told BuzzFeed News. “Something to get the older generation excited and also draw in a new audience.”

Unfortunately, Ma finished in 11th place during the competition, but he still heroically provided ample inspiration for those of us in need of some post-apocalyptic dance therapy.
