There is not much that Leslie Hall can’t do. My favorite performance artist/singer/dancer/awesome-gem-sweater-maker’s band, Leslie and the Ly’s, has just released a new jam from their new album Destination Friendship: The Feelings Album. “Hydrate Jirate” promises a quality dancing experience; layering Leslie’s sweet, droney voice over a pulsing beat that’s reminiscent of old school Madonna’s ...

Yesterday while promoting her campaign to end childhood obesity in America, Michelle Obama broke it down to Beyonce with a group of middle-schoolers in DC. I don’t know if she can get any more adorable (my guess is no). The first lady has better dance moves than I could ever hope for. Not only is Michelle’s Dougie super impressive, but towards the end of the video she totally brings it by doing The Running Man. It’s heroic, really. Check it ... Read More

I feel as though I should start with a declaimer:
Content in this blog may be unsuitable for children. Actually, if you’re a girl under the age of 18, please don’t continue reading. I don’t want to be responsible for exposing an entire generation of young woman to this. So just go do your homework or something.
It’s unclear whether this dance move originated in Brazilian nightclubs or their bedrooms, but I can only assume ... Read More

Ah, Internets! You so funny. In this wonderful video, Gwen Verdon's awesome Bob Fosse dance number, "Mexican Breakfast" (??) from some time in the 70s is given subtitles to explain what each dance move is trying to say, and it's just one of those wonderful things you can watch over and over and over again. If this doesn't make you laugh on a crabby Monday morning, you should probably go see the doctor. Check out the vid after the jump, and enjoy.
