When in doubt, dance it out.
People all over the globe are suffering through the pandemic, and there’s an ongoing question about what the best way would be to spend time at home productively? One answer is to dance. Dancing can be a way to stay fit for people of all ages, shapes, and sizes!
It can help improve your muscle tone, strength, and endurance, strengthen bones, reduce the risk of osteoporosis, and improve mental functioning.
Lastly, it is a great way to meet new friends—just always remember to maintain physical distancing at all times and wear a face mask!
Dance has existed all the way back into human history.
Humans used dance as a medium to convey themselves, their emotions, their beliefs and their religion. Even the animal kingdom dances to woo their mates! It can be done solo, in pairs or as a group. It has evolved through time yet its purpose lingers: to express.
As some other sayings go, age is just a number and life starts at 30… so get up and shake that booty.
You are never too old to try something new or rekindle an old hobby.
That is why Keema’s Kickin’ Crew, stylized as K2C, encourages people of all ages through their YouTube videos to dance their stress away.
With the group’s motto “The more you move, the more you improve,” they have been uploading dance covers of old and new songs since 2013.
Their program has a goal of helping their audience lose weight, improve their endurance and refresh the brain and memory—all while having fun learning the most popular line dances.
The steps are as easy as one, two, three—and even people with two left feet can join and groove.
K2C usually do a line dance.
It is a choreographed dance with a repeated sequence of steps in which a group of people dance in one or more lines or rows, all facing either each other or in the same direction, and executing the steps at the same time. Unlike circle dancing, line dancers are not in physical contact with each other (thus respecting the practice of social distancing).
Come on, dance, jump on it!
In a dance cover choreographed by Keema and Nana J, they chose the 2015 hit song, “Uptown Funk.”
“Uptown Funk” is a song by British record producer Mark Ronson from his fourth studio album, Uptown Special, released in 2015, featuring American singer and songwriter Bruno Mars.
The song is a fusion of funk-pop, soul, boogie, disco-pop and the Minneapolis sound.
It has a spirit akin to the 1980s-era funk music—think of “Let’s Groove” by Earth, Wind and Fire.
Its lyrics address fashion and self-love, performed in a sing-rapping style filled with metaphors, arrogance, charisma and lots of fun. It channels the days when bragging wasn’t humble and disco wasn’t retro.
A jolly, energetic, feel-good song that blasted on radios worldwide, making it an inescapable, a bona fide modern-day mega-hit.
And these dancers had a great time with it!
