The JUSTICE LEAGUE of Dance: Superheroes of Movement

Posted on February 10, 2017 by Dr. Lynda

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!)

What a wonderful expression of possibility!

And of course, that’s what TED is all about. Are you familiar with TED? It’s one of the most interesting places on the web but if you hop on over to TED it can look a bit overwhelming. Where to start? Take a look at our growing list of the best TED Talks.

If you haven’t heard of TED, head straight to our EWC Must-See TED Talk List to see or favorites to get started.

That’s all for today on Ever Widening Circles (EWC). Stay open, curious and optimistic. It really is still an amazing world!
