just dance

I'm back from Paris. More on that later.

As for now, I'm obsessed with tecktonik. As a girl from da A who grew up dancing like a stripper, this is really weird & new. And it fascinates the bee-jesus out of me. I've just spent the better part of the last hour watching homemade videos of people dancing with their arms swinging. (In da A, it's all about keeping your arms as close to your body as possible... unless they're around the neck of a rapping baller with 10G's worth of jewelry around his neck.)

My only question is: doesn't this type of dancing kinda prevent you from dancing with (or near) someone else? I just feel like my hand would eventually meet someone else's head with all the swinging action.


  1. Haha, you so fah-ny! :) A boy from Japan did a presentation on this in one of my classes. He didn't dance for us (unfortunately) and just showed videos on YouTube. You could tell he was super excited about it though just by his awkward body language trying to hide his urge to fling his arms around.

  2. Yay for the Reebok Pumps!! Hmm I'd be somewhat scared of dancing next to someone dancing that...exuberantly? I'd admire from a distance though lol.

  3. OMG, I've been trying to master this for months now. The hand slap at the end is so tight.

  4. shoot how to you train for that? i think some pelvic thrusts are needed asap....

    the only part that freaks me out is that mullet...


  5.'s like a combination of whacking/popping and uh...slithery saturday night fever dancing?
