    is this an appropriate place to mention my 'buffoon empiricist manifesto', which is a slightly tongue in cheek argument for more dancing?

    can i also point out that stelfox wrote a piece for the guardian music blog a while back lamenting the lack of original dances in uk urban music, compared to us hiphop.. which was followed swiftly by rolex sweep, and then.. well, FUNKY. who knew everyone was reading the guardian music blog?!

    I thus pose the question, why are dances on the west side of the atlantic competitive and dances on the east side collective?

    bboy showdown or migraine hoedown?

    I loved Adriano Celentano.



    Never seen that before. Thanks very much

    Here`s Stevie Wonder from Soul Train in '72 with Superstition. Seems the dancers are collective and individual at the same time. I like the guy in green at 3:13

    But on the dacehall side, there's Elephant Man's oeuvre
    Sweep


    Nuh Linga, Swagger, and many more..

    Dancers are really ruling the scene in Kingston right now - they seem more popular and more creative than sound system djs in a way..

    The Nicholas Brothers:




    Busby Berkeley...the real action starts around 1min 50




    I like this one for some reason...possibly the great Creedence Clearwater track?

    The Skanking Continuum: I am convinced that this exists. But what musical forms does it involve - ska, 2-step, funky house, but I reckon there must have been others? And (sticking more closely to the thread idea) how has the dancing evolved with the music over the years?

    Good question Andy - that obviously nobody could answer.
    Nor can I but I only recently saw this and it's pretty cool. The bit you need to see is around one minute twenty-seven but watch it all.



    Apparently that's the first time the moonwalk was captured on film although it existed way before.

    one of the funniest things I have ever seen is my mate pathetically trying to moonwalk while drunk, ending up in the middle of a circle of adoring fans, lumbering about like Baloo the bear.

    There's a definite continuum between the sailor's hornpipe, Irish folk dances, Tapdancing, African American competitive dancing, the Highland fling and the Crip Walk.
