Think you’re not that interested in dance? You haven’t seen the superheroes from the streets, modern masters of the unbelievable.

Today, EWC points you to a new kind of superhero: A Justice League of Dancers, performing feats of insane body control that anyone can appreciate and admire.

All I could say after enjoying the fabulous performance that we are sharing with you today was “why don’t we all know about this?”

I had no idea where cheap webcams and the digital age had taken the art of dance. Apparently, people all over the world put together videos of their feats of creativity and athleticism, and then one improves on the other.

It’s created a culture of street dancing that is just jaw-dropping.

Take a few minutes to get up to speed on this amazing corner of our world. (Be patient. Give this talk about 5 minutes and you’ll begin to see why the EWC staff just had to feature this one!)
