D is for Diversity

Okay so its day 4, so far we have looked at the A-Z challenge, Base Jumping and Cuckoo Psycho's. Such Diversity already ! So from the title, you think today we are going to look at the serious issues of cultural diversity... No sorry !!

Today we are looking at the Street Dance Crew "Diversity" Yes it is true, although I am a 44 year old, married man with 3 teenagers, I love to watch a good bit of well executed Street Dance!! This last month I have really enjoyed watching "Go To Dance" on Sky TV. Basically inside my two left feet there is a dancer that is trying to get out. I keep telling Mrs RJR that when we get some time, I would like to have dance lessons, but by the time we get the time, it may be crutches and Zimma frames.. Still a man can dream.

I love the film "Shall we Dance" Richard Gere as John Clark the man that seizes the moment and takes dance classes. Dance seems like the ultimate form of creative expression.



But I Digress from Diversity, winners of 2009 TV show "Britains Got Talent" beating Susan Boyle.


Originally formed in 2004 performing as Swift Moves and choreographed by crew member Ashley Banjo.

Ashley is a London lad who's Nigerian father was a Boxer and his English mother a member of the Royal ballet. The combination of family backgrounds has brought about a guy with exceptional originality in choreography. Here they are in action, from the recent "Got to dance" final show



Not sure how many hours in front of a mirror they have to spend to get so in time and unified, but it impresses me. Totally "on point" and if that didn't impress, here they are in their early days (2005) winning the "Jump off" they are on the left going up against K1 Crew



So, today's post adds diversity and is about Diversity (clever hey)

AS you know I Line Danced for 10 years and enjoyed it, but I was no good with a partner, still it was good exercise as well,could go back but without all the western gear.

Very clever indeed. How wonderful it must be to be able to express yourself in body movement.

John, you dancin' (in your head) fool! You certainly through me off with the Diversity heading, since I'd never heard of the group (possibly because I reside on the wrong side of the pond). Fun stuff.

Now, if you don't mind, you have inspired me to dance like a fool for my son. (Not that I really needed much inspiration; I do it all the time.)

Hi John, your blog was next in the linky list! I love to think that I can dance and not look like a complete fool, but in reality I can't. So I don't do it.

This is me, Duncan D. Horne, visiting you from the A-Z challenge, wishing you all the best throughout April and beyond.
