I mean seriously, it is like the USA is 10 years behind Belgium.
This is some serious shit, and clearly the reason the Euros are faster at cyclocross.
some dude did that on so you think you can dance this summer – i thought he was just making that stuff up till i saw this… jumpstyle, no shit…
judges on the show were none too excited about it… weird looks like the white men who can’t dance’s answer to hip hop…
(my daughter likes the show… i just happened to be in the room when it was on and that guy was auditioning, i swear)
I don’t understand how they got steven in that video so quickly. Isn’t he still on the plane?
Molly!That is sooo Euro,I can smell the cow poop laden fields from here!Best of luck,younga…manaka,manaka!
Dude, that is soooo 2005 …
Search Youtube for ‘C Walk’ before bringin’ that Belgie shit.
C walk is pretty stunning.
It’s great to see folks utilizing spaces that would ordinarily be left vacant. Old abandoned buildings? Make it a jump studio. Sidewalk next to empty grass field? Jump studio. And the efficiency of it all… Compared to the fox trot, there is so much, much more ownership of one’s personal surroundings proportional to the number of dance steps required. It’s just so much more economical and sensical. More bang for your euro. It’s just getting to be too expensive to have a full dance floor devoted to one couple waltzing around these days. The jump-dance just makes so much sense. The duo performing in tandem brought tears to my eye – beautiful!
I recently saw video on Sporza live showing that Sven Nys is actually doing that kind of dance as warm up prior to his races now. You have to adapt to keep your edge, as Sven has aptly demonstrated. Eventually, the word will get out and you will see more hardened riders like Vervecken and Groenendal giving it a try. If not, they will surely just get lost in the shuffle.
Have fun over there and at least spend one day pigging out on waffles. Maybe the last day.
10 years behind the Belgies? more like we’re 25years ahead of them…
‘cross training yo
Molly, that’s clearly Steven in an abandoned eurowarehaus. And as that’s the case, why wasn’t he up there making a “cannon-ball start” of his own today? PS- tell Mr Al that he’d be a little more svelte without nine bowls of porridge for breakfast every day.
Interesting, it’s definately got roots in the jigs and folk dances of Northern Europe but it’s been adapted rythmically for the techno/trance beat…
…um, hi. *waves* I kind of wandered over from BikePortland and, uh, I studied classical ballet for 16 years and was a competitve dancer for 8… so um, yeah! Thanks for sharing the video.
