CALLING ALL DANCE CREWS!!
Michael Jackson’s memorial service is tomorrow and in the week since his death, we have not seen a proper dance tribute to the late great legend. Michael was original and innovative and took his performances to another level, not just vocally but visually. Would Thriller have had such a lasting legacy without the dance scene or MJ’s transformation into werewolf? Would Smooth Criminal have been as spectacular without the kick ass dancing and of course “the lean”? I think not, so it is only fitting that dance crews get the chance to pay homage to the King, Michael Jackson.
