Good Morning Everyone! It's OCTOBER! Can you believe it?!?! 3 Months left in the year and I really feel like we got CHEATED! Here in the Midwest, we didn't even get a SUMMER! We didn't even make it to 100 degrees and can almost count on one hand here in Indianapolis how many times we hit 90. ALL SUMMER BRO! It's wild! We had a REALLY bad Winter last year and we surely don't need another one because see, the way my Blackness is set up, I CAN'T STAND THE COLD AND SNOW! HELP US LORD! LOL! I pray that everyone has an amazing day and continue to WAIT ON GOD! I can't say it enough! Your blessing and miracle is on the way! Just continue to keep God first and know that He is able to do ALL THINGS!
I remember when I was a kid, we had some crazy dances. Who remembers the "Cabbage Patch" or "Macarena?" We really did these dances and thought we were for real doing something. Well, now today, what do we have? We have our young kids doing dances called the "Nae Nae" and the "Shmoney Dance." I had to school one of my friends on what the "Shmoney Dance" was and that and the "Nae Nae" dance to me looks MAD SUSPECT! I'll just leave it at that. Then there's a "Yeet", a "No Flex Zone" & "Twerking?" But, when we think about it, is this all really DANCING? We had kids doing the Soulja Boi "Superman" and that's where I feel like around 2006/2007 it just all went down hill from there. I don't see people going into dance studios asking how to do any of these crazy dances. But, younger people are really into them. It makes you wonder, what is coming NEXT in the World of Dance?
Now, I'm a true fan of REAL DANCING! From Chicago Juke Dancing & Footworking, B Boying, to Dubstep, to even Riverdancing! YES I SAID IT! There are still some people who truly know how to GET DOWN! I actually feel like the original dancers truly really are gone or aren't dancing for real anymore. James Brown, Michael Jackson, Usher, Chris Brown. People who when you went for a show, YOU GOT A COMPLETE SHOW! But why is dancing getting so...well...LAZY? What happened to the skilled craft and art form that was dancing? Not just stuff a person started doing in their living room with their friends, thought it looked cool, and put a crazy name to it. I just want real dancing to come back! The real working people who put hours and hours of making sure it looked right and was precise in movements for everyone to enjoy and appreciate. OH WELL! Maybe I'm overthinking all of this and asking for too much, but shout out to all the real dancers who still make dancing amazing and enjoyable for everyone!
