Juste Debout 2012 Popping

It’s no secret that I’ve been loving me some popping in the last year, and so this compolation of Juste Debout 2012 Popping category was particularly stunning for me. If you’re still wondering what this dance style is all about, be sure to check it out. Thanks YAK Films.

Jordan & Tatiana 2011’s Gravity

Jordan Frisbee & Tatiana Mollmann 1st place Classic Division winners with “Gravity” at the 2011 Mid Atlantic Dance Jam. I feel like the really wonderful thing about the routines this couple do is that they almost feel more like contemporary dance, while maintaining the structure of West Coast Swing. You feel like you really have room to breathe, to connect with what is happening between the dancers, and between the music and the dancers, and with you.

Sadly, and despite this routine in 2011, after their very gutsy 2010 routine that netted them a mere 2nd place at the Swing US Open DC (after years of getting 1sts every year at that competition) they changed to safer, more standard routines that personally I feel fall kind of flat. But if results are all that matter, then it paid off for them as they got the 2011 and 2012 1st place again. via MariaF

Dance like nobody’s watching: Airport

Angela Trimbur returns with another entry in “Dance like nobody’s watching”, this time at an airport. I absolutely love the carefree nature of these and the ridiculousness that is rocking out like this. Traditionally you’d have to use a ghetto blaster and be even more obnoxious, but now with headphones you just look crazy.
