Music can be defined as the “art of sounds that expresses the feelings of human spirit“. It exists since the beginning of time, and so does dancing. Every country, culture and Era had and still has its own style and genre – or more than one.
Industrial, rock, country, pop, classic, blues, rap, techno, just to mention a few. More details on this fantastic interactive music map.
Not differently it is for dance. The old cave paintings show that dancing did exist since the first appearance of men on earth – with the initial main purpose of accompanying rituals. You can read the story here.
So both music and dance were used for rituals or ecstasy, display or entertainment, and they’ve always been part of human life. YouTube success is a clear demonstration of that.
So what kind of music and dance do you prefer to play or listen to? Do you like to watch performing artists? Music videos could be defined as a kind of performing art. On the other hand, listening is good, and listening and watching is even better.
So today we would like to talk a bit about a rap/hip pop song and how “ordinary” people reproduce it. In particular, how they dance to it.
Do you know “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” song?
This is the debut single by the American rapper Silentó. The song peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100. With a viral clip on YouTube, the song was popular for its dance, a combination of two popular moves cited in the title: the “Whip” and the “Nae Nae” as well as other hip hop dances from various songs.
This nice video shows a cute 3-year-old girl dancing to this song – for sure, she is better than me and perhaps than many of you – but it’s not up to me to judge.
“I love to dance & have fun with my family!“ she states on her Instagram profile.
Which one is better? The original one or the pretty girl? Do you have any children? Do they like to dance too?
Anyway, no matter how they could perform, any kids are the best to the eyes of their parents, aren’t they?
