The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is an American television sitcom that originally aired on NBC from September 10, 1990 to May 20, 1996. The show stars Will Smith as a fictionalized version of himself, a street-smart teenager from West Philadelphia who is sent to move in with his aunt and uncle in wealthy Bel Air in their mansion, where his lifestyle often clashes with that of his relatives.

The SONG:

Sugarhill Gang: “Apache” (1981)

In 1981 the rap group Sugarhill Gang covered the Incredible Bongo Band version of the song on their second album 8th Wonder. In 1995 this version gained new popularity after being featured in “Viva Lost Wages”, a sixth-season episode of the NBC sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,[5] as well as a subsequent clip show from the series.

Is it just me or is this the greatest dance ever? You can “Crank Dat” Soulja Boy, Toot It and Boot It, teach someone how to Dougie or do the two step but no matter what, The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air created something that has yet to be topped.  The “Jump On It” dance. This dance is a phenomenon to this day!

It’s remarkable how Will and Carlton created a dance move back in the 90s that has maintained its popularity to this day. Not only is it an easy dance that anyone can do, it’s HI-LARIOUS. The angry face and pelvic thrusting followed by a happy jumping, skipping in a circle motion with a finger in the air will always remain a classic. In addition, the Fresh Prince created the Carlton dance that always gave us a good laugh.

Dance


As Wikipedia states it..

Dance is an art form that generally refers to movement of the body, usually rhythmic and to music, used as a form of expression, social interaction or presented in a spiritual or performance setting.

Dance may also be regarded as a form of nonverbal communication between humans, and is also performed by other animals (bee dance, patterns of behaviour such as a mating dance). Gymnastics, figure skating and synchronized swimming are sports that incorporate dance, while martial arts kata are often compared to dances. Motion in ordinarily inanimate objects may also be described as dances (the leaves danced in the wind).

Definitions of what constitutes dance are dependent on social, cultural, aesthetic, artistic and moral constraints and range from functional movement (such as folk dance) to virtuoso techniques such as ballet. Dance can be participatory, social or performed for an audience. It can also be ceremonial, competitive or erotic. Dance movements may be without significance in themselves, such as in ballet or European folk dance, or have a gestural vocabulary/symbolic system as in many Asian dances. Dance can embody or express ideas, emotions or tell a story.

Dancing has evolved many styles. Breakdancing and Krumping are related to the hip hop culture. African dance is interpretative. Ballet, Ballroom, Waltz, and Tango are classical styles of dance while Square and the Electric Slide are forms of step dances.

Every dance, no matter what style, has something in common. It not only involves flexibility and body movement, but also physics. If the proper physics is not taken into consideration, injuries may occur.
