Awesome Dance

Genèse

Genèse

Performance artists U-Machine created this work in which a pole dancer interacts with the geometric images projected on the screen behind her. The result is a live performance that could pass as the opening credit sequence for the next James Bond movie (if it had guns.)

Breakbot: My Toy

Breakbot: My Toy

(PG-13) The video for Breakbot’s disco-infused track mixes ’70s sci-fi elements to create a world in which men are replaced with creepy robots who do the bidding of their female masters. It’s like Westworld meets Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex.

Gravity

Gravity

The always incredible Poppin John teamed up with dancer Solto to turn in this mindbending (and bodybending) street performance set to Revolvr & Genisis and Splitbreed’s track Unstoppable. The gimmick at the end is worth the price of admission.

EROSION

EROSION

A wonderfully shot short film by Brandon Bloch and Tim Sessler which uses the movements of a group of talented young dancers to reflect the gradual loss of New York City’s local culture and character as the city has gentrified. Read more on the Brooklyn Aerials blog.

Filmmaker Wilkie Branson created this beautiful and heartfelt animated short by hand-cutting more than 4,000 individual printouts of dance movements from his other film, then compositing them into larger than life backdrops.

NonStop: Pearly Whites

NonStop: Pearly Whites

Marquese “Nonstop” Scott yet again proves that he can dance like a boss, regardless of the musical genre. Here shows off his superhuman balance and body control to an ethereal afro-electro-slow-jam by Thriftworks.

Unsquare Dance

Unsquare Dance

Musicians will tell you that a 7/4 time signature is one of the trickiest rhythms to follow. In Stewart MacLennan’s short film, performers show off their ability to keep in sync with this unusual beat. Inspired by Dave Brubeck’s eponymous track.

Waltz on the Wall

Waltz on the Wall

Using nothing more than rappelling gear and their talents, dancers Amelia Rudolph and Roel Seeber pulled off this epic vertical dance on the side of Oakland’s City Hall for the Art + Soul Festival.

World Order: Have a Nice Day

World Order: Have a Nice Day

Genki Sudo and the rest of World Order’s kempt robots take us on a tour of Akibahara, a district in Tokyo known for its electronics and geeky establishments. Guest starring members of AKB48, who Wreck-it-Ralph fans might know.

Super Mario Super Dance

Super Mario Super Dance

We dare you not to crack at least a little smile as Nathan Barnatt cranks out some more of his silly dance moves while dressed as everyone’s favorite pixelated plumber. Stick around long enough and he might even get his Princess.

The Future is Now

The Future is Now

A performance art piece done with a pair of ridiculously expensive programmable LED light sticks loaded with a variety of mesmerizing persistance of vision images. We love how he snuck Nyan cat in there. More here.

The Norwegian Shake

The Norwegian Shake

Honestly, we have no idea what the deal is with the whole Harlem Shake craze that’s sweeping through the interpipes lately. All we know is we prefer the way they do it in the Norwegian Army.

Sign-Flipping Boss

Sign-Flipping Boss

Awesomer fave Marquese Scott was driving down the road and ran into this guy who was showing off his epic sign-flipping skills. Though when Nonstop joins in, all we could think of was this sketch.

The Alchemy of Light

The Alchemy of Light

Performance artist a dandypunk created this interactive live production which combines dance and movement with projection mapping as his only source of illumination.

Skyrim x Gangnam Style

Skyrim x Gangnam Style

We know the Gangnam Style meme is overplayed, and Skyrim is past its prime too. But mash ’em both together, and there’s just enough fresh moves here to waste the next 4 minutes of your life.

Madeon Dance Remix Remix

Madeon Dance Remix Remix

Remember Nathan Barnatt’s classic dance routine, set to Madeon’s unstoppable Pop Culture? Well, his pal Lindsay Ames decided to recreate the dance and we have to say she nailed it.

Punchrobert Dubsteppin’

Punchrobert Dubsteppin’

Who says white guys can’t dance? While he hasn’t quite reached the level of Marquese Scott, we’re still pretty impressed with the moves of Urban Ninja Robert Hoffman – and his greeting technique.

Daft Charleston

Daft Charleston

Old black and white footage of the Charleston being danced to Daft Punk’s Around the World. Sounds crazy, no? But it works – perfectly. The latest dance craze for the 21st century.

Break ton Neck

Break ton Neck

While you already have to be pretty flexible to breakdance, Arthur Cadre takes it to a whole ‘nother level combining his bendy Yoga skills with B-Boy moves in this clip by Alex Yde. Song here.

Marquese Scott Dubsteppin’

Marquese Scott Dubsteppin’

Marquese Scott is the opposite of no bones Nathan Barnett. Your jaw will slowly drop and stay dropped as he pops to Butch Clancy’s remix of Pumped Up Kicks by Foster the People.
