    Michael Jackson’s Best Dance Breaks
    by Matthew Scott Donnelly May 25, 2017 1:57 PM


    Look out, Michael Flatley — the Lord of the Dance might have a second and more rightful identity in Michael Jackson.
    Between his 1964 professional debut as part of the Jackson 5 and his untimely 2009 death, Jackson gave convincing evidence that his feet were sprinkled with fairy dust. Beyond cultivating an identity as one of pop’s most identifiable voices, he proved he could dance like no other, and boogied through the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s like a well-dressed human metronome.
    Between breakneck routines set to “Beat It,” “Man in the Mirror” moving and slinky “Smooth Criminal” choreography, Jackson exacted steps and slides like a pro. Plus, we’d be remiss to forget he first set The Moonwalk into motion.
    As Jackson once aptly professed: “Thinking is the biggest mistake a dancer could make: You have to feel.” Check out MJ’s very best dance breaks above and tell us if there’s a particular routine you still remember.

    Here's a link to the article.

    The more I watch new music videos and the next generation live. The more I appreciate how incredible, timeless, and simply unmatched Michael was as a dancer

    I think drums might be my favourite instrument now.

    I never get tired of watching this video! Danja, I agree with you on the drums. My favorite part of a marching band is always the drums.

    I didn't know this was still on youtube! 12 years and counting would still love to know who choreographed this piece. though still in his teens, Michael was already dancing at a high level. this is one of the first times that he stepped out on his own. much of this style formed the basis of what he'd do later on. even without the tap sounds, his expression is animated.

    MJ was the best dancer the world has ever seen - and propaply ever will see.

    The moment in the drill - in This Is It - where MJ stands chewing gum and nails this very complicated dance - and the young dancers are so concentrated and not neasrly as fluid and good. - Looks so effortless and like he just makes it up on the spot. Amazing.
    https://www.youtube.com/user/Ahess/videos - me dancing MJ - many years ago.

    I would be really glad if you rated or/and commented the videos. Thanks
