Beautiful People, Dancing…Beautifully

19 Feb

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Having had the opportunity to explore the arts at an early age (years of ballet, jazz and hip-hop dance and having played the cello, saxophone and flute) I really do appreciate seeing individuals who’ve progressed beyond those formative years, and now as artists and professionals, have become fully entrenched in the craft that they love.

With this dance piece however (set to a pretty addictive and rather intoxicating mix by Chris Brown and Benny Benassi) I think that my appreciation for their choreographed stylings comes more from the fact that it reminds me of once upon a time when the honey and I would break out into our own spontaneous fits of fancy footwork in a parking deck or campus lot; just because (aah, the carefree college days).  And not to take anything away from Zoie and Antwan (because they are every bit of awesome here), but back when body parts stretched and muscles flexed the way that they were supposed to, the honey and I were easily the best urban Johnny (Patrick Swayze) and “Baby” (Jennifer Grey) on the Eastern Seaboard (although now, you’d be lucky if you could get a crisp Cupid Shuffle or synchronized Wobble out of us)!

Just Sayin.
