On Air Now
The Capital Weekender with Sarah Story 7pm - 10pm
If you've been feeling nostalgic for the immaculate girl and boy bands of the nineties as of late, you're in luck! Capital have gathered together over 30 dance moves and pop band staples that have been sorely missing on the music scene in recent times....
Backstreet Boys show that waiting in line doesn't have to be boring, as long as you all hold your arms out at different heights!
'Take On Me' four-piece A1 demonstrate the easiest way to add a bit of presence to your performance... get lifted 30 feet in the air on high wires!
The Spice Girls were MASTERS of that good ol' dance move classic... the sexy hip pop! #GirlPower
UK band Steps illustrate how the power stance can help you look serious even when wearing the most ridiculous outfits seen on the stage!
Take That took their song lyrics for 'Pray' literally when working out the dance choreography for their live stage shows. We'd hate to see the dry cleaning bill for those white trousers though!
One of the strangest nineties pop band moves was that one where each member slowly hugs and caresses themselves in time with the music... maybe this one SHOULD stay in the past!!
Atomic Kitten show you can improve on even the best choreographed routine simply by adding a few hunky men in army gear into the mix.
5ive's signature dance move ALWAYS went hand-in-hand with their love of low-slung trousers.
Westlife pretty much trademarked this move back in the day, as each member holds out their arms during the appropriate song lyric (preferably while dressed completely in white).
Destiny's Child practically made this move a part of the girl band bible when they released their song 'Independent Women Part II'. Charlie's Angels indeed!
When the 'Bye Bye Bye' singers all jumped on the spot... you KNEW they meant business!
Westlife show the powerful effect that can be achieved by simply rising up through the stage while surrounded by dry ice... perfect for a ballad (or ten!).
Quintessential nineties group Take That show off that boy band staple... punching the air for effect!
Take That's stage shows were always very athletic affairs... so fans hardly batted an eyelid when the boys started backflipping around all over the stage during their sets!
We can just imagine the behind the scenes politics of deciding who had to stand on the little one!
While we're not sure exactly just what Irish band B*Witched were trying to spell, but they definitely still get ten points for effort!
N*Sync take to the arena skies on puppet strings... you couldn't write this stuff if you tried!
'Don't Stop Movin' singers S Club 7 perfectly demonstrate how to whip up a swift round of applause from the audience.
It may not be a dance move... but making sure each band member is wearing the same outfit was one of the beloved staples of boy and girl bands in the nineties!
Take That knew JUST how to make an audience go crazy... without even lifting a finger!
Steps made sure kids across the country had no trouble picking up the moves to their signature Abba cover!
The Irish four-piece manage to convey their woe-is-me state of mind with just a simple hand movement!
Another of those trademark boy band moves... reaching up to the stars to show emotion! #LoveIt
Manufactured US band O-Town may not have been blessed with an endless supply of chart hits... but their dancing thankfully included just the right amount of "jazz hands" action!
Take That knew that, no matter how good your choreography was, there's no substitute for showing off your tidy whities during a show!
Brit band A1 raise their fingers to perfectly illustrate the lyrics to one of their MANY hit singles!!
N*Sync show off another boy band staple... moving in slow motion JUST before cranking things up with a key change.
