Now to something entertaining

My posts are usually very serious but from time to time I like to include something lighter.

I came across this example of the Lindi Hop which I really like.  It is whimisical and well done.

I love the music on this next video.  It is very interesting in showing the raw roots of swing and later rock and roll dancing. It shows how negros developed the dance and played with it.  Later whites adopted it (as they so often do in popular culture) but in a less extreme form.

What stands out in this video is how athletic and energetic it all it.  It is like a bunch of kids with tons of energy just fooling around and trying all kinds of things.  What it lacks is elegance.  The emphasis is on tricks and energy and not on class.
