There is no particular point in this post. I recently came across a number of videos I thought entertaining. Below is a performance in the 2007 CCTV National Dance Competition; a bit of hip hop, break dance, and street dance. “Dreaming Back to the Wa Village” – “梦回佤乡.”
Younger Chinese are getting into it as well. Here is a 7 year old Chinese girl dancing to hip hop followed by a 5 year old Chinese boy performing break moves. (Somebody needs to tell the girl’s parents the lyrics are inappropriate for her age though. Okay, maybe somebody ought to translate the lyrics and that’d be the end of it – tongue in cheek.)
In the highlight video below, I’d say it is the height of Western break dance. There is no argument – wow – the attitude is contagious! Did it grab you? I just can’t wait for the above performers to pick up the attitude too. Okay, attitude, Western style. You can already see some of that in the 7 year old.
Lastly – homage to Michael Jackson:
