Will The “Choke” Dance Take Off In The U.S.?
A new dance craze called the Choke is sweeping South America. As Clutch magazine points out, the Choke looks an awful lot like the Bump of the ’70s, but it’s more sexually suggestive than simply bumping hips. The dance involves a man dancing behind a willing woman or another man, and pulling her/him towards his crotch or hip to the beat of the music. The Choke is not nearly as sexually offensive and confusing as Daggering, a “dance” that was created in Jamaica a few years ago, nor as skillful, hypnotizing (when done right), or deadly as the Dutty Wine. I found the men doing the Choke together, in the video above, much more interesting than a man and woman. But maybe that’s because two men banging each other’s crotches and behinds is taboo in the heterosexual world? Check out one more video of the Choke after the jump, and let us know if you think this dance will take off in the U.S. [Clutch]
