    A Massachusetts high school is having a serious debate over the theme of a scheduled dance. According to WHDH, students at the school in Lexington said that the school administration canceled their ‘American pride’ dance because it may exclude other nationalities. The ‘American pride’ theme received the most votes from the Lexington High School dance committee. Despite this, the administration is standing behind its decision, saying it’s are willing to tweak the theme in order for ‘everyone to be included.’

    Her arm thrust out and pouting like a rapper, this is the moment that Michelle Obama showed off her dance moves during a toe-curling appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Challenged to show off her dance moves by Ms Degeneres, Mrs Obama gamely obliged and went on to pull shapes that wouldn't have shamed Rita Ora. Unfortunately for daughters Sasha and Malia, the appearance on Ellen, which airs on the 16th March, isn't the end of the 51-year-old's dancing ambitions.

About a month ago, the 24-year-old in Provo, Utah challenged his sibling to a round of one-on-one, noting that the loser would have to stand on a busy intersection and dance for a half hour. Turns out, Andrew was the loser. Playing the best out of three, Ben, 22, won every single basketball game. Thus, Andrew found himself booty-popping, flipping and break dancing on a cement island downtown, as documented in a YouTube video going viral this week. "I was...

    The Central Coast is in much need of rain, and one group is asking for it in a unique way. The Central Coast Center for Spiritual Living hosted a rain dance in Templeton Park on Saturday. A Native American reverend led the dance. Rain dances have been performed by American Indians for hundreds of years, to evoke water during dry seasons. The Center for Spiritual Living says it believes the power of many minds focused on the same goal will produce results. They also held a meditation session after the dance, and prayed for rain.

  • "Miss" America?

    09/18/2013 8:56:08 AM PDT · by newb2012 · 189 replies
    Some stuff still leaves me puzzled here. How can a 'Bollywood 'dance sequence be considered 'Miss.America's' talent? If someone’s born an American and claim to be all American, wouldn’t they have some original American talent to show and win the prestigious Miss.America title? Does a nation have to become so diverse that it'd loose its own identity? The most sad part is the dance number the winner performed - in no way shows how beautiful Indian fine arts are either. I find the performance to be more of mockery of classical form of the art. I don't honestly think that...

He also argued that the exemption applies to "choreographed" performances, and what the Nite Moves dancers do doesn't qualify. At least three members of the seven-judge panel questioned the notion that a performance must be choreographed to be considered artistic. Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman suggested "creative artists in particular" often improvise......

The National Fatwa Council would remain respectful of the decision made by the Perak Fatwa Council to ban the dance in the state as their research showed that it had elements of Christianity and soul worshipping.

So, Obama took the occasion Thursday to make a considerably longer statement celebrating the Motown Sound and Black History Month at another star-studded White House music party.

Apparently the speed of a man's right knee and the size and variety of movements of the neck and torso are key, they suggest. Throughout the animal kingdom examples abound of males performing courtship dances, attracting females with displays of health and skill. Dances are sexy among humans as well, and scientists wanted to codify what moves ladies like to see in men.
