I came across this video on my FB news feed. The comments were … well let me just say, “un-enlightened”.

Personally I think the dance was well done and reminded me of a typical NBA dance team. My curiosity got the better of me and I had to research the origins of this clip and found out the Fraules Dance Center is located in Novosibirsk, Russia (Pop. 1.5 million). This school occasionally brings in African American choreographers. It’s good to know dances with African and African-American roots have appeal all the way in Russia. It’s also good to know some of our talented dance professionals are getting the opportunity to travel the world and teach their craft.

I do wish the school could have found an instrumental version of the music.
