March Dance Challenge 17 – The Band Wagon

Video

This piece of dance is well worth a look! You might not have seen this before. This dance is from the film The Band Wagon staring Fred Astaire.

Now this dance was the inspiration to Michael Jackson’s video Smooth criminal, you can definitely see the similarity. Michael got many of his moves, videos and styles from the old films. Also the choreographer Fossy who style is very distinct from the musical Chicago, again got inspiration from this film.

March Dance Challenge 10 – They Don’t Care About Us

Video

A big contrast from yesterday, this is the great Michael Jackson in a live show, singing, They Don’t Care About us.

The reason I have chose this is because I just love the style the dancing, his sharpness of the isolated movements, how it fits perfectly with the music, yet another dance I would love to learn. Really it wouldn’t be that difficult, but I bet they rehearsed this over and over to get it altogether! And he sings on top of the movements too! Effortless!

I hope you enjoy it as much as me!
