    I didn't think I was going to like this one when it started, but... some amazing jittery ankle stuff, and love the sense of fun, and such great stuff going on around him too :cool:

    Street Player havent posted a new video for a year - really hope they come back. I think its the project of one particular choreographer/dance teacher? i think i read that, but forget now...love the looseness and improv in their videos

    I went to a Jah Shaka dance that was quite close to this vibe recently! They are very rare now tho, all the venues are shut (in london anyway)

    He plays Bristol every now and again and in fact the last dub night I went to he played-this was about 15 years ago. The dub nights on Bristol are not very diverse.
    Give me a shout if one comes up in London though:)

    Nice thread. Love dancing, watching or doing. The Lindy hop video posted earlier is one of my favourites. Watched loads of Hip hop and b-boy videos Sadly the clip below is probably what I would look like if I tried any of the moves.

    Another favourite. Love the way you can see so many different parts of the music in her moves.

    Managed to find this again. It sort of ruined my love of b-boy/girl culture as most of their moves seem to have been stolen from these dancers.

  22. I loved these two scenes from Gaspar Noé's film, Climax.
    Best if you watch the whole film though.

    Longboard dancing popped up on my Facebook feed. Never heard of or seen it before. Find this little clip really relaxing.

    Nooooo, it's best to stop as soon as the dancing stops and leaving it right there!

    Same here, can remember where and when I heard a song 30 years ago but if a TV ad break is longer than a minute I can't remember what I was watching.

    gentlegreen Bulla liberali in perpetuum.

    I'm struggling to "get" this style of dancing - even more so with the Salsa I tried years ago - I found it a bit incongruous the way they fetishised hip-wiggling while not actually being in Cuba ....

    Was shown this one yesterday.
