Video Sunday – Dance Party Edition
As you read this I’m apparently at a cabin somewhere in New York state. I’m either sipping a cool white wine while reading the latest Grace Lin or I’m fighting off wild beavers with just my bare hands and a pair of inappropriately strappy sandals.
What could be worse than the latter? Watching me break it down bhangra style.
Probably would’ve been a better idea to save this one for Halloween, I think. Extra Credit: Record the number of children’s/YA book author/illustrators dancing in this video.
Aw heck. Why not make today a fun music video day in general? Let’s see some dancing!!! Of course you’ve all seen these before, but in case you haven’t, here are three of my favorites. First up, the new Feist video.
And, in the spirit of single takes, the Okay Go video that made them the stars they are today.
Finally, The Zutons may be less impressive in terms of dance moves, but they win in terms of catchy tunes.
Dance it out.
