Dancing in the Street



I love this video so much, I had to post it here and on my tumblr. It's basically Rosario Dawson and some "homeless" guy jamming on a London street to a swell tune: The Bullitts - Super Cool. It cracks me up how he keeps saying "Rosario Dawson!" every five seconds. Fast forward to the 3:40 mark if you just wanna peep her moves.

I went out Tuesday night with my Polish friend who, believe it or not, is the best dancer [other than myself] that I know. We are always the best dancers in the club - hands down - but more importantly, we seem to be the only ones laughing, drinks & hands in the air, singing along to the lyrics, showing out and just having a genuinely fun time. I don't understand why people go to the club to stand around - in an effort to look cool and composed, they look anything but. Busta Rhymes was in the building the same night, and I swear to you, more eyes were on me and my pal than on Busta. When you got that glow!

Anyways, back to the video. This video tells you three things:
  1. PSA for women who do nothing but shake their asses at the club... THIS is how you groove!
  2. PSA for men who like to sneak up behind women and get all touchy feely without their consent, THIS is how to dance with a woman without making her feel like the object of your perverted affections.
  3. Don't take yourself so seriously when you're dancing. Shake your hips, raise your arms, laugh and smile. Have FUN. Stop worrying about what other people think, it never matters!
And this video also tells me three things:
  1. People of color MUST move when they hear a fly tune. It's either a head bop or a table tap or a little wiggle, but it's something.
  2. Rosario Dawson is a sweet dancer, therefore my spirit sister.*
  3. With that being said, I'm about 99% sure I could take her.
A video of me breaking it down will be coming up very soon actually. Rejoice! And tell a friend.

*Ironically, Rosario Dawson looks a lot like my real older sister.
