Fun-k(e)y...A Theme Thursday Post :)

"Oh my" for today's theme!

There is one thing that came to mind and I'm gonna share with you. Funky Jazz!! I love to dance, watch other people dance, learn how to dance and so on. It is a form of expression that really makes me happy...I have fun and the last time I checked 'fun' is part of the word 'funky', isn't it?

Take a minute to enjoy a 'funky jazz' choreography, performed by two wonderful dancers, Natalie Fotopoulos and Zoi Tatopoulos. The video is taken from the Greek version of the show 'so you think you can dance' and it was uploaded by a YouTube user (many thanks to badmintonwinner:)...



Happy TT

interesting...i was exposed to a lot of modern dance with T, as she was a ballerina for 18 years. always fun to wonder what was goign through the choreographers mind as they wrote the steps and pared the music. and of course just to dance to the music we hear...

Wings said...

Fun stuff! Thanks for sharing! :)

Marianna, Brian makes sense in that. I'm a huge Busby Berkley fan ( talk about choreography on a grand scale ). And still can't get the video to load :^(

Leah said...

Poetikat said...

Jill said...

Tom said...

Funky...but i just don't get modern dance. It's funky-weird.

Marianna said...

Brian: I agree with you. There is an interesting appeal when expressing one's self through the movements of the body. Leaves you wondering, indeed!

Wings: Hey and glad you enjoyed it :)

subtorp77: Oh I wish you were able to watch it...

Baino said...

We're pretty keen on'So You Think You Can Dance' especially the auditions which sometimes have people who are a different kind of funky completely!

I have been watching that show here in the US for about 4 years now. I love it. It is amazing what they accomplish each week and how they grow into each dance style. I like that they do not waste too much time on the real funky weirdos who are really strange and cannot dance. This show gets down to the real dancers fairly fast and it makes it a fun, funky show to watch. Thank you for the video, it was great.

God bless.
