    Talking The Dance Appreciation Thread.

    Michael is the best, and most versatile dancer the world has ever seen.:bugeyed
    Sure throughout HIStory you've had other dancers that are good, but those dancers almost all specialized in one or two types of dance, and weren't all around entertainers, so of course they'd be good.

    Michael is the best because he MORE then mastered so many diffrent dances (while being an all around entertainer), and always wanted to learn more.

    This thread was made to discuss, and post videos of Michael's amazing dancing.
    Additionally, yes rehearsal videos are allowed.

    Unfortunately I don't have the opportunity to post any videos as I I'm using my phone and it would be difficult, but I think one of his most complicated and complex dance is the Dangerous choreography. I'm learning it atm and it took me 3 weeks to learn half of it. It's amazing. 2 Bad also! I will learn it after this one. Also worth mentioning Billie Jean (of course), Remember The Time, Thriller, Smooth Criminal, Jam, Blood On The Dance Floor.

    He learned SO much intricate choreography, and not once could you catch him doing the eight count.
    After awhile I'm not sure if he thought about his moves at all.
    He was such a natural, and powerful dancer.

    This video shows his (amazing) dance moves.

    It is an official one that was aired also during his MSG Anniversary shows (2001):

    That's a great little video, but that was official? Motown 25 wasn't in 82 and BAD wasn't released in 88. Odd to get the dates wrong.

    I mean it is not a fan-made one.

    This video was officially broadcast on TV around that time (2001) as a part of the general promoting policy.

    Of course, you are right about the wrong dates & it strikes me as odd, too.

    I agree, no one could dance like Michael. Dance was his soul, when the music and the energy took him, magic emerged.
    The moonwalk, the robot, the smooth criminal lean. All incredible.

    One of my favourites on Youtube, not mine, but you get all the early dancing here and MJ is spinning around the others and dancing up a storm in these 1974 - 1981 era tracks to one of the very best songs off Triumph.

    Michael had a very bad memory, especially when it comes to dates. there's nothing odd about it

    Lol. He had a terrible memory with dates. I was always "correcting him" thru the tv screen. Just shows he had a busy life though. The busier you are, the least likely you are to remember dates.

    What's odd is there was no producer or fact checker to catch it. Of course, they got his birthdate wrong on American Dream, and that was a huge production.
