What's your Superbowl Dance?

My one takeaway from the Superbowl was that we all need a Touchdown Celebration Dance. Many of the players celebrated at the end zone with the Beyonce booty dance.



...Or a variation of The Chicken Dance

That's why I hot footed it to my hip hop dance class at NewStyleMotherlode this morning to get some inspiration...and seriously you need to do the same. You might be arguing that we mere mortals don't have touchdowns. But these NFL guys are only doing what they're paid ($15million a year) to do. So even if you're just doing your job, you need a end zone celebration dance.

Oakland's DanceMeister, Corey Action of NewStyleMotherlode

Our dance class this morning

Feel free to make these your own - Ray Lewis has the Squirrel, Kaepernick has the Kaepernicking, an arm-kissing thing. There's also the Salsa, the Discount Double Check, The Beyonce booty bump, the Dirty Chicken and the Clay Matthews Sack Dance -  crouch down wide and scoop your arms. And of course beautiful Beyonce has pretty much cornered the market on hair rolling (and anything to do with gorgeous thighs). But please -  I beseech of you! No more Gangnam Style!

After completing one load of washing (yay me!) I grabbed my empty laundry basket and went where the dance muse took me. The unexpected met the eclectic - a Fosse-meets-Justin drag to the left and to the right followed by an old skool Janet Jackson toe rocking. Two loads of washing and a bok bok chicken arms and legs was added.

Whatcha! Did my dance outside because our laundry is too small


C'mon now, it's your turn - what does your end zone celebration dance look like?

  2. Brilliant. Mine's the pot stirring dance (with slight bum wiggle). Buy the bok bok chicken sounds good too - I can build that in to my repertoire I think :o)

  3. You really make me laugh ... no wonder you have such a wonderfully slim figure with all that dancing! Like Sue, I also have a little pot-stirring dance move; now need to work on my laundry jive:)

  4. Mine is very simple - it involves me taking a few faltering steps with an empty cocktail glass clutched in each paw, and then falling over onto my face. Not aesthetically pleasing, but I definitely touchdown.

  5. Hahaha...I love it!! I have no idea what mine would be, maybe just crawling into bed and sleeping, haha!! You look brilliant :) xx

  6. I could use some instruction. I fear my moves are horribly outdated!! I'm on laundry duty today so I might work on those as I go to a fro (my laundry is in the guest house - bugger).

  7. As you know I'm rehearsing for a musical production I'm involved in so my dance is evolving slowly as I learn the lyrics to my song, the gist of which is - far better to eat cake than do drugs, drink alcohol or have sex. As I wear a pinnie, hair net and rubber gloves, i'm thinking your dance is just the thing, wash basket included.

    1. Think your costume is perfect. let them eat cake. I also should have posted my Beyonce basket booty shot, basically you stick out your bum and have the basket behind.

  8. All 3 of my children have a celebration dance prepared ready for when they achieve their 1st batting century - am I supposed to have one ready too?? Can't I just clap??

    1. Jay - you could do that clap in a circle round your head, sort of spanishy and hip hop. Also something you could do seated. Efficient and stylish!

    1. Thanks for visiting Kathryn. So sorry I'm totally hopeless with Googleplus - how do I visit your blog?

  11. Oh my gosh, you are too funny!!! Hmmm... I wonder what my touchdown dance would look like....!

  12. Hilarious. Totally loving the old school Janet Jackson dance mention! lol

  13. You're a nutter:) Love this - I have completely fallen for Ray Lewis this season - used to quite dislike him after some knife incident here in Atlanta years ago. His dances have made me giggle so much this season I'll be sad to see him go. I've started dancing in front of the camera occasionally - can't beat a good dance:) One of the reasons I also love Ellen!

  15. Definitely something where I am jogging in place very quickly on my toes with Salsa arms - done in the pool, so there is no question of my balance failing me. (Been there, done that!)

  17. shouldn't yours incorporate the Haka? I'm glad to see you follow my love of socks and sandals. Very this season

    1. Should include the Haka. And in fact the team for the new stadium in San fran contacted Corey Action to make up a dance for spectators. They gave the example of the Haka.

  18. My dance is anything that will embarrass the children (not hard) and send them groaning from the room!

    1. Embarrass the children was my first and foremost New Year's resolution this year - it's the only one I'm keeping so far!

  19. I'm not trying to flatter you here, but your dance is definitely the best one on show. I can almost feel you flex your butt muscles.
