there seem to be many versions of it (just slightly different). Anyone knows how come?
Hmm... not sure what's up with the slightly different versions. My guess is it was originally choreographed one way, some came along and decided to do different styling, then others picked up on the styling and someone the various stylings are now taught as the original form of the dance. Just a thought...
The major difference I see is in one version you begin with a right and left grapevine while in another version it's a foot-twist-slide type of thing to the right twice and then to the left twice. Given the name, I would assume the slidey thing - technical term :wink: - is the correct way.
The "Awa-odori", danced in the city of Tokushima on the island of Shikoku during their 3-day summer dance festival. People are not lined up next to each other, rather they form a procession. There is the delicate women's dance and then there is the more raucous and even silly men's dance(which is the one I do- women can do it too!) which is lots of fun and has you pretty sore the next day from crouching down and flailing arms around all night!
Sounds like fun. Can you recommend a site with pictures?
It is a BLAST! Most of the sites are in Japanese, but I think these two have some photos when you access them right away.
I really like Mambo #5 as well. I'll have to look up Men in Black...is it to the Will Smith song?
I was googling for stuff on sweat, and the 4th result was my post on this thread!!
I think so. It's a fun dance and it's easy.
Chill Factor is fun!
3AM is good.
Smooth Criminal is awesome but noone knows the choreographer, lol.
SXY was pretty fun, but it died off here, I taught it at Peach State a couple of years ago.
Chill Factor? That sounds intriguing. What music do you dance that to?
Last Night, by Chris Anderson.
The Beast or Adams Ale depending on Ability
One of the greatest dances I have ever done with a song by the greatest english act we have had, its a shame they arnt still going (cheap seats - Somrthin' in the water)
I was an X Files fan for a while back then.
New episodes. New cases...
The set up here is that Mulder is given what he thinks are two capsules consisting of "magic mushrooms," in an effort to communicate with a comatose suicide bomber. Turns out the he was given a placebo, but since he is in Texas...
One of the on-going disputes in the studio is whether or not "Achy Breaky Heart" is one of the worst songs every written and should never ever be played over the studio sound system. Unfortunately, one of the studio owners likes it.... Or likes to torture the rest of us.
