Oh my god! That move! The placement of hands, the leg and one very precise hip movement! 🔥 🔥
@filmandmusic had this to say yesterday:
MJ invented his own dancing style. Unique in movement, fashion and singing.
f&m's larger point was to do with BJ and Thriller in particular but I think it stands as a general point, also. Is this why Michael had SO many signature dance moves? Bc he invented his own dance style? I probably sound really gonzo but this honestly had not occurred to me before even though my interest in Michael always centred first and foremost around his dancing.
Yes, he invented his own dance style by mixing various different styles. He had rhythm in his body, he could hear music and just move with it.
