Remember These Dance Moves? It’s The Evolution Of Dance In Just A Few Short Minutes
This video was voted Best Dance Video on the internet, and even if you watch only the first couple minutes you will see why. In just six minutes, dancer Judson Laipply takes the viewers through the evolution of dance, starting with Elvis Presley in the 1950′s right through the early 2000′s.
This viral video has over 270 million views. Even though I’ve seen (and shared) this video many times with my friends, when it recently came back to my Facebook page, I showed it to my two sons, (ages 16 and 18) who had NOT seen it. I quickly assumed that they would find it as entertaining as I did. Don’t get me wrong, they DID find it entertaining, but not for the same reasons I did.
“You used to dance like THAT?” followed by short bursts of laughter, both at Laipply doing the dances and the thought of their mother doing those dances.
After sharing this video with my boys, maybe I’ll just keep things that I find entertaining to myself! However, for those that were born before the turn of the century, enjoy this evolution of dance. (If you have already seen it….enjoy it again!)
