Fcuk me I've been doing all wrong for the last 40 years

Looks like a few of us have.

 

The bit about bringing your arms across made me laugh.isn`t it natural for your arms to move,anyway?

 

Unless you`re back in the seventies and people walked around with their hands in their sidepocket trousers(and a hunched back!)

The arm mention is great but nowhere near as funny as the "group lesson" video (must try & find it) where they're in line dancing mode & they're all dancing from side to side with one hand on their hip & on a side ways sweep ( I know all the lingo :lol: ) they all flick their hands in the air ala saturday night fever so it looks like a troup of dancing teapots, absolutely hilarious  :thumbsup:

I don't have a problem with how this guy dances, or anybody else for that matter, but what seemed odd to me was just the comment in that first video posted in this thread where he explains that the video may be useful if "you're looking to get into Northern Soul."

 

Just seems a weird idea, flick through some magazines, social media or whatever, and toy with the idea "Yeah, might fancy a bit of this Northern thing."

Obviously I know we all started at some point, but I think for everyone who stays with the music, no matter how much your tastes change and expand, the interest in Northern was pretty much instant. You didn't really choose it, it just took hold of you.

I'm good Dave, or I was until I fell over.  Vid 2 reminded me of a few I've seen at 'local' soul nights. It's the innocenti effect.

why dont you see his face?

Cos he's wearing headphones and dancing to a different record on the second vid - Less is more usually works better, imo.

Best shiny shoes seen in a while though :thumbsup:

Tragic. The thing is, I've seen similar at some do's, young debutante, six pints into the evening has plucked up courage and hit the nursery slopes during a mid-tempo number. All well and good until something a bit more up-tempo comes on and then this hokey-cokey malarkey just doesn't work, resulting in another toilet break or wallflower duty round the outside...

Highly embarrassed he must be you would think ...  :huh:

 

But bear in mind that if camera-phones and 'YT' were available back in the 'olden' days the net would be awash with shaky clips of all those flash dancers you remember going through their 'practice' routines in their bedrooms , and Liveleak awash with them falling on their arses ...  :wicked:

First thought was ' I don't dance like that do I ?' Second thought was 'well how do I dance?' Truly never seen a recording of my feet close up when dancing... Out comes the video recorder and on goes a tune! The result? in truth average at best, certainly not for sharing!  As my wife used to say when out at do's,  'you mix in OK dear' I used to take that as a vote of confidence!  Ade

£30 for six weeks.  That's £5 a lesson.  That money would be better spent on admissions to soul nights, then you can see how it's done in the real world, not some sell out "instructor's" version of how we all should be dancing, by numbers.  These so called instructors need to watch their backs.  Look what happened to Bruce Lee.

If you turn off the volume and use you imagination it`s a physiotherapy routine on recovery from spinal surgery!
