There are dance crazes from time to time but Shuffle Dancing is something I missed - it’s several years old, but I’m loving it.
Seems to feature young women mostly, but the first video incorporates Oliver & Hardy as well.
The second two videos are just a couple of favourites.
If you’re young then dancing like this will give you a really good physical work out. But in my case the word ‘shuffle’ would be as in ‘the old man shuffled along’! Joyful and invigorating to watch and listen to.
Don’t suppose anyone would believe me but at nearly 80 I enjoy watching these young women dancing, thinking how proud I’d feel if they were great grand daughters enjoying life. I particularly like the 2 girls (sisters?) in blue jeans in the 2nd video - get a great chuckle watching them so in synch.
I’d love to see male dancers, who would dance just as well, but with that extra strength and power that comes with masculinity.
The guy with the black hat is real cool! Same style hat as L&H are wearing?
I have had, over thirty years here in France, a hydraulic rowing machine, a static bike and a treadmill to keep fit. And small dumbbells, a treadle machine, a barbell – as well as my bicycle.
The treadmill I use very rarely, if at all now, mainly because I become so dreadfully bored, walking to nowhere I suppose. Tried listening to music on earphones, or to a news channel out loud, or counting down each step, counting heart beats, thinking something through while treading along, all to keep me distracted from the boredom. Gave up!
For me now, exercise is keeping on the move. Going up and down the stairs is an easy one because my computer-space-comfort-zone is upstairs, and the kitchen & toilet are downstairs!
Grass grows so fast and I become paranoic about it because I invariably cut grass when it’s too long or clumpy or too wet, and the sit-on motor mower suffers and has to go to the repair shop - but my new battery driven lawnmower solves the problem, makes me more disciplined, and gives me more exercise.
Our ancestors just walked, keeping slim and healthy, searching for food. My daily trips to the supermarket give me twenty minutes or so racing around along supermarkets aisles! And the upcoming purchase of the ruined barn next door is going to keep me physically occupied, but in a small way, for a while. Will need a small contractor to do the heavy work.
Haven’t forgot your difficult barn what-to-do-paralysis….in the renovation thread…
