Taylor Swift Dancing

Award season is just around the corner and you know what that means: plenty of opportunities to watch Taylor Swift's epic dance moves! 

It's no secret that T.Swift's awkward dancing is one of the best parts of every award show, and, we'll admit, we're practically counting down the days until we can watch her in the audience at the MTV VMAs. 

And apparently, loyal Swifties are equally as amused by the "Shake It Off" stunner's moves, so much so that they begged the Grammy-winner to come up with a name for one of her infamous steps. 

Sharing a GIF from the 2014 Grammy Awards, one fan asked on Tumblr, "Seriously Taylor… what do you call this dance move?" to which she replied, "The Mom-Croon."

As for what the Mom-Croon entails? 

"A dance move invented at the 2014 Grammy Awards," she wrote. "To sway, perform, and sing along to a song in an extremely emotional or sentimental way, possibly incorporating hand gestures. Eyes closed, lost in the music. The way your mom gets taken away by a tune from her high school days, glass of red wine in hand, shuffling around the room as her teenage kids roll their eyes in disdain.

"Cynics may judge the Mom-Crooners (MC's as they are commonly referred to in the dance world) as it is a form of dance only perfected by those willing to be absolutely swept away by the feels you get when you hear a certain song," she continued. "Those who know how to Mom Croon cannot see the eye rolls of haters. They have reached a level of musical transcendence that is hater-proof. Once you perfect the mom croon, you are truly free."

The singer playfully added: "Used in a sentence: "Oh look, Taylor's being embarrassing again– just mom-crooning away in the corner by herself because Sometimes by Britney Spears came on. Oh God. Now she's crying.'" 

Just over a year ago, Swift addressed her much-buzzed-about boogieing in an in interview with Jimmy Kimmel Live!

"I used to get really nervous at awards shows because, seemingly, they're a huge pressure cooker. And everybody seems to be sitting there trying to look more unaffected by being at this awards show than the next person next to them," Swift explained. "That can have an effect on you, and so you're in the front row and you're sitting there like, 'Maybe I should sit here like this.' A couple years ago I just decided, 'No. This is the coolest concert you could ever go to. This is like all these incredible acts playing their biggest songs and I get to be front row and I'm going to dance during this because I feel like it—and not because it looks cool, because it doesn't.'"

Mom-croon away, Tay!
