That’s all you need folks. Truly. If, that is, you want to take a Hip Hop class with your girlfriends. A class in which you learn to do some massively cool Krumping and such. I suggest having a margarita before the dancing lesson (it makes you more limber, you know?). I also suggest applying duct tape to necessary body parts before dancing. For some, this necessity is of utmost importance. If, that is, you don’t want your “girls” to be hovering near your knees when finished. However, the duct tape can also be used over the mouth of the friend that is guffawing so hard AT your meager Krumping attempts that she wets herself. Not that that would happen. But, you know, just in case.
And how did I come to find this out? At a 5-year-old’s birthday party. Yup. I’ve got the sore back to prove it. The adults were “invited” to join in as some dude named “Mr. Chris” sang hip hop and krump-y versions of songs like “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes”. And a Very Jerseylicious (I do believe it said that right across that back of her pants?) Dance Instructor showed us how to do things like “Chest Pops”. And by “us”, I mean the adults. The 4 and 5 year old set already had that down. Not. Even. Kidding.
Now, I’ve got no “game” in the dance department. My moves are about as vanilla and un-coordinated as possible. It’s sad but true. However, I do love me a good laugh. Plus, it’s a bonus to have so many friends around you that if you throw your back out, you’ll have help getting back out to the car. So, I jumped right in and busted a couple of moves. Because, if nothing else, it provided an awesome laugh or ten. Yes indeedy! Sometimes, duct tape and margaritas, however, should be required.
