Coolness: I Heart Dancers aka "Gotta Dance"

i love to dance and it's a real shame I couldn't become a professional dancer :-( but I did do talent shows, so know permanent damage done :-). Just like music, i'm completed obsessed with dancing too. Whilst browsing through my latest obsession (again) dancing........(I really don't know what i would do without YouTube), I found these great clips of "real dancers" mostly all street dancers, with no professional training at all, you may some of recognise them. I love street dancers because you see raw emotions and passion, something I don't think you can see in a dance studio.

When i watch programmes like Randy Jackson's American Dance Crew, I enjoy it, but their is nothing like an old school dancer. I salute all the lockers, poppers, breakers, wacckers, tappers, freestylers and even the square dancers around the world who keep these art forms alive!!.

Here are some of my favourite dancing quotes: "Dancing: the vertical expression of a horizontal desire legalized by music". ~George Bernard Shaw

"Dancers are instruments, like a piano the choreographer plays". ~George Balanchine

"I see dance being used as communication between body and soul, to express what it too deep to find for words". ~Ruth St. Denis

"Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels". ~Faith Whittlesey

If you enjoy the art of dance like me, here are some great clips, courtesy of YouTube, enjoy :-)

enjoy :-)!
