Hulu has some dance…

3


If you like dance like I like dance, you are always drawn to movies and television which features dance and movement. C’mon, you loved Bring It On, Centerstage, Save The Last Dance, Step It Up, Stomp the Yard, and even Showgirls. You call them your “guilty pleasure”, but what’s to be guilty about? We love to watch dance!

Well Hulu has some dance videos on demand. Not much, but some. Here are some highlights I just dug up:

A snippet of the Roxanne Tango from Moulin Rouge. Click here and find other 2 minute clips from throughout Moulin Rouge (one of my fave movies).

Nigel Lithgow giving his own angle on the performers from Superstars of Dance. Unfortunately, I thought the show somewhat lame, but Nigel’s insights into the different groups and dance styles, as well as some of the clips from the show–sans the insultingly biased country-by-country voting and insipid meanderings of The Lord of the Dance-turned-MC, Michale Flatley–are fun to watch online!

Don’t miss Team South Africa, Tam India’s Rajasthani dance, and the Australian modern dance group (can you say boundless energy?!)

Step It Up and Dance, which I am surprised to learn is a show I had never heard of before (maybe it wasn’t all that good?), is hosted by Elizabeth Berkely and is a competition dance show. There are some fun clips among them..and there are a looooot of clips. Pages and pages.

There is also an…interesting…series on LiveMojo on bellydance.

Just search for “belly dance” in the search box to see them all.

There are a lot of links to ABC’s Dancing With The Stars online lessons and “dance tips”, but I have never been a big fan of the show. You can see them on ABC.com if you are a fan!

Oh and here are some clips from Bring It On!

Do you have a favorite online source for video outside of the usual YouTube and Google videos?

    I’ve wanted to take some time and check out http://dancejam.com/ a bit. I haven’t gotten the opportunity to get very far, though their description of Bellydance made me go wha? It’s such a narrow description.

    MC Hammer is actually one of the founders of dancejam.com I think it’s a really cool concept, and any place I can watch dancing is good to me!
