Bite It

FOUNDATION MOVE #1

SOURCE: Flight of the Concords: hiphopopotamus vs. rhymenoceros

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FArZxLj6DLk

UNOFFICIAL NAME OF MY FOUNDATION MOVE: Snap, Body Wave, and Subway Feet Forward Shuffle

TIMESTAMP OF MY FOUNDATION MOVE: 00:33 - 00:44

ARTIST OR CHOREOGRAPHER:  Danielle Flora “After years as a Knicks City Dancer, (basketball), Danielle went on to become the choreographer for Saturday Night Live and the MTV VMAs.”

NOTES: I think this is funny, and sometimes I walk like that getting off the train.

FOUNDATION MOVE #2

SOURCE: Ciara - Ride

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lp6W4aK1sbs

UNOFFICIAL NAME: Whirling This Around or (My Ass Hurts)

TIMESTAMP: 00:00,  2:12 - 2:16, this move seems to come up a lot

ARTIST OR CHOREOGRAPHER: ?

NOTES: This video was banned from MTV and BET because it was too “suggestive.”  Ciara is just too hot for tv.  I tried to find out who did the choreography, but only found a bunch of fan videos, etc., so maybe Ciara was the choreographer?  Ciara is an amazing dancer.  The silhouette of this move is gorgeous.

FOUNDATION MOVE #3

SOURCE: Lauryn Hill: Doo Wop

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6QKqFPRZSA

UNOFFICIAL NAME: Right Within

TIMESTAMP: 2:25 - 2:30

ARTIST OR CHOREOGRAPHER: I’m guessing these moves are based on Doo Wop music and dancing. This is what wikipedia says about Doo Wop, “Doo-wop is a style of vocal-based rhythm and blues/rock n' roll music developed in African American communities in the 1940s, achieving mainstream popularity in the 1950s and early 1960s.”

NOTES: Sweeping motion of the hands from front to back. Whenever I hear this song I envision the Lauryn Hill doing this move with her 1960’s self.  I also really love those Doo Wop dudes on the upper left side doing their fly things.  I love the right to left swaying bob that’s going on at 3:00 - 3:17 with both hands up at their face.

FOUNDATION MOVE #4

SOURCE: Missy Elliott - One Minute Man

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XayUCLgxS5c

UNOFFICIAL NAME: Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch chhhhhhhh

TIMESTAMP: 00:20 - 00:24

ARTIST OR CHOREOGRAPHER: ?

NOTES: This is a great move to introduce the beginning of the song and I think it goes well with the music.

FOUNDATION MOVE #5

SOURCE: Busta Rhymes - Break Ya Neck

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrghtXWfVYM

UNOFFICIAL NAME: Busta’s Head Bang

TIMESTAMP: 1:13

ARTIST OR CHOREOGRAPHER: Busta Rhymes

NOTES: I like the way Busta Rhymes is very intense and almost goofy/ridiculous/insane.  He has a lot of inflections and a lot of energy.  He also has a lot of really great hand movements.

My intentions for the class are to look at dance moves more closely, and study how they look in order to inspire some drawings about dancing and hopefully some animations of dance moves!  While looking for videos for this assignment I drew some characters dancing.
