Everyone should see “The Nutcracker” ballet at least once in their lifetime. And if you’re demented like me, you should see the ballet/burlesque fusion show “The Slutcracker” at least once, too!

Whereas traditional ballet celebrates poise and elegance,  ”The Slutcracker” turns the traditional Christmastime show on its head with satirical, saucy performances involving pole dancing and BDSM. It’s the brainchild of former ballet dancer Vanessa White and has run for four holiday seasons in Somerville, Massachusetts. In an interview with Tufts Daily student newspaper, Vanessa explained how she danced ballet for 11 years but gravitated towards burlesque after an injury. Vanessa also edited Boink, the erotica magazine for Boston University, and went on to found a burlesque troupe called Babes In Boinkland. In an entirely natural way, “The Slutcracker” became a melding of all these interests. Keep reading »

The Walmart Bounce Is Sweeping The Aisles


Thank you, Mr. Ghetto, for teaching us the latest dance craze, the Walmart bounce. Whatta whatta whatta whirl! It’s true! Da club is so over, the new hot spot to meet somethin’ is Walmart. It makes perfect sense. Everything a lady needs to stay sassy and classy can be found in the aisles of a Walmart superstore: grocery, boy shorts, lingerie, Massengill, and a cart to hold onto while she backs that thing up. One question: what exactly does it mean to have a “Louisiana purchase?” Please ‘splain. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Happiness Is … Dancing Like A Spaz On National Television


In this case Happiness is a person on Ireland’s “Got to Dance” and not a human emotion. But her scat-inspired dance moves make me feel happier than I’ve felt in days. Every now and then someone comes along and reminds you what a joy it is to be alive. Happiness, I thank you. [The Hairpin] Keep reading »

“Weekend at Bernie’s” Just Got A Whole Lot More Hip-Hop


It was only a matter of time — like, say, 20 years — before southern rap would inevitably pair itself off with ’90s Hawaiian shirt comedy “Weekend at Bernie’s.” This track from rappers I.S.A, “Movin’ Like Berney,” encourages listeners to dance like the film’s eponymous dead guy. Your move, Andrew McCarthy. [Moviefone] Keep reading »

Cloggers Use Their Hands, Too


Confession: I was a clogger in elementary school. So I love that these two Irish dancers—Cleary & Harding—have taken the principles of the dance and brought it to their hands. Hawt. Keep reading »

And You Thought Dancing On The Ceiling Was Hard


A space usually reserved for window washers and people calling themselves “The Human Fly,” the towering sides of skyscrapers are now being taking over by Project Bandaloop. This dance troupe travels the world, trying to redefine how people perceive their surroundings. In this case, that means bounding around on the sides of buildings and freaking me out. I think we’ve found Amelia’s next exercise regime to try out! Keep reading »

Video: Cowboy Hip Hop Is Where It’s At


I guess this cowboy hip-hop dance craze never caught on the way it should have. I say it’s not too late. I’ve been doing the country version of the running man and the Roger Rabbit for years now and didn’t even know it. Who’s with me? Let’s bust a move. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

In My Next Life I’ll Be A Dancer, In This One I’ll Do Nia

When I was 4 years old I was in my first play. When my big, finale scene came along I was supposed to sweep a moneybag down from a chimney and rejoice. But when the moneybag was not in its place, I was forced to think on my feet and come up with a new ending. I began to improvise a scene: “We don’t need any money, we have each other, we’ll live on love!” Where did I come up with that? I have no idea. But I followed my inspirational dialogue with what I thought would be some awe-inspiring dance moves I had learned in my ballet class. I did some kind of a funked-up pirouette and some leaps. Much to my surprise, the audience began to roar with laughter and applaud. My dancing was funny? It was supposed to be great. While I was a big hit as a comedic actress, I was a big flop as a dancer.
