TikTok Dancers Have Invaded Yosemite

To get updates on Yosemite National Park throughout the year, I like to meander through the Yosemite hashtag on Instagram. It’s a perk of the job and a way for me to destress at the end of the day. But what I recently found sitting at the top of the hashtag is a trend that we should probably begin bracing for going forward in social media…

TikTok dancers.

As a millennial, I’ve actually really enjoyed getting into the world of TikTok. Some of the people on the platform are so talented and creative, and its algorithm rewards quality. I like to call it the fully democratic social media platform. But I’m not a huge fan of the dancers, and their popularity is now invading a place I love.

When you search the Yosemite hashtag on Instagram now, the top Reels are mostly dancers, performing synchronized moves to today’s top hits. I don’t mind these influencers doing their thing. You do you. But are we sure we want these dance crazes invading the outdoor destinations we love so much? Here are some examples of what I’m talking about:

These types of videos are now all over social media, drowning out the content that is actually true to the experience of Yosemite. Also, can you imagine trying to enjoy the view of El Capitan with these dancers doing routines in the background?

I probably sound like a “get off my lawn” boomer here, but I just feel that this sacred place we call Yosemite shouldn’t be the backdrop of these weird viral videos. These videos, posted by influencers with millions of followers, are likely to be mimicked by droves of people until Yosemite Valley just looks like a matinee of Chicago.

I suppose this is just the new world we’re living in. Maybe I should polish my dance moves?
