“There is no step sequence. You just have to move your body in sync with the beat to dance and to make it a movement. If you move your body without being synchronized with the beat, you will get lost. It’s a step that works for beginners and it’s a good thing to try. In fact we’ve had a good number of people join our program, who weren’t really ready to dance when that first step came up but could still dance afterwards, even if they weren’t the most technically ready. I don’t know who gets more attention in the classes. I think people are always trying to do something that no one knows.”
It’s also a great way to learn to connect with sound in a way that helps your brain understand songs in context on a more primal level. A great way to dance.
Do you dance around on the spot at a gig?
“I wouldn’t say it’s a real-life style. We try to stay away from it, because you end up hurting your back and your foot and it sounds ugly. A lot of people say, ‘You’re too stiff to even dance!’ If we dance around we do. We’ll always dance around, but we’ve got to keep at it. We’ll never do anything that requires people to put out of their minds and concentrate on our moves. You have to watch it closely.”
Tell me one thing about your favorite dance that you remember doing as a kid and have kept it for years despite the fact that it isn’t in your typical repertoire?
“My dad had this little old-school move that he did with me when I was a kid. It could be a slow, low, little hop that was kind of a variation of a shuffle. We still remember it quite well, even though it may not sound like a good move to you now, when I was a kid. I still don’t have any pictures of the old move that I did.”
When did you first learn?
“It’s very easy to learn. You just move your body in sync with the beat. And the best thing about the music is that it’s in sync with the whole thing. If you put out of your mind and focus on your foot, and your body doesn’t move in unison with the beat, you’re going to get lost. We always show our students how it’s done.”
In your opinion, would anyone want to learn to dance like you do?
