Their parents might be stars in their own right but when it comes mastering TikTok, mum and dad are turning to their kids to teach them how to do it.
TikTok is a video-sharing social media platform where users can do dance challenges, lip-sync their favourite songs and create amazing short-form content.
And if you’re keen on learning TikTok with your own family, we can show you how!
How to learn a TikTok dance with your family
There’s a few TikTok dances that work great for families. Some of our favourites are:
- Blinding Lights
- Something New
- Oh Na Na Na
- Toosie Slide
- The Kick Drop
- Laxed (Siren Beat)
- Hit Yo Rollie
- Magic in the Hamptons
You’ll find that some TikTok dances have online tutorials that you can follow to learn the moves. Alternatively you can simply search and find the dance you want to learn and watch it on repeat until you have the moves down, but the simplest and best way to learn a dance – particularly if it’s one of the more complicated ones – is to rehearse it as a TikTok duet.
Using TikTok duet to learn a dance:
- Once you’ve found the dance video that you’re keen to have a crack at, tap the arrow icon as if you were going to share it
- Tap ‘Duet’
- Now you can slow the video down and practice alongside it until you get the moves down pat
- Hot tip: delete all of the rehearsals, you don’t want to be accidentally sharing those!
- Once you feel like you’ve mastered the dance with your family, you can create your own TikTok video of it using the ‘Sound’ for that particular dance.

Mark Wahlberg, Rhea Durham and daughter, Grace

Australian cricket hero, David Warner and his five-year-old, Indi made for an adorable father-daughter duo as they shook their hips to the Bollywood hit song, Sheila Ki Jawani.

Jessica Alba and family
Actress Jessica Alba is using self-quarantine to master TikTok. In a cute video, Jessica can be seen dancing alongside her husband, Cash Warren and daughters, Honor, 11 and Haven, eight. Missing from the adorable clip is her toddler son, Hayes, two.

Courtney Cox with daughter Coco
Friends star Courtney Cox is all of us trying to keep up with our teenage daughter on TikTok. Uploading a video of herself dancing with 15-year-old daughter, Coco, Courtney writes:
“Wanna see your child lose their patience? Do a TikTok with them. #familyaerobics”
Reese Witherspoon with son, Deacon
In a flashback to September last year when TikTok was just taking off, Reese Witherspoon asked her teenage son, Deacon Phillippe, for help understanding the popular social media app, and the results are hilarious.
The Big Little Lies actress opens the video with a very important question for her 15-year-old son: “What is TikTok? For all the mums out there.”
Props to Deacon who does his best to educate his mum who honestly seems to be getting more of a kick out of embarassing her son than nailing TikTok.
