舞曲介紹:In The Air Tonight最後八拍有個TerminologyShorty George」,這也是一個組合的舞步名稱,就讓我再做個筆記吧

要聊Shorty George前,先看這個影片

Shorty George and Big Bea

影片中個頭小小的男生,他的名字"Shorty" George Snowden (July 4, 1904 - May 1982)Shorty George的舞步是由他的名字命名的,主要在強調要跟George一樣,運用高度創造舞蹈的效果,起源於Jazz舞步,在排舞這個納百川的舞蹈運動中被引用,排舞舞步的組合順序:

Kick Ball Change+Walk+Walk……

Kick Ball ChangeWalk都是很簡單的舞步,如果沒有變化,做這些動作,那還是稱之為Kick Ball ChangeWalk,如果要稱之為Shorty George,記得它除了要這兩個舞步組合而成外,還要有一個特色,那就是Shorty,所以一定要半蹲做Walk的動作,蹲下來才有矮的感覺,因為用蹲著直線走,步伐就不大,還會隨著擺動,就形成Shorty George舞步,用講的真的很模糊,就讓排舞冠軍教你怎麼跳(影片總共介紹三個動作,在0:35~1:30示範Shorty George)

有關影片這段Shorty George,註解節錄如下:

Shorty George named after Shorty George Snowden who was a Lindy Hopper, a very famous Lindy Hopper, in the late 20s' in Harlem. George Snowden, or Shorty George, came up with this step and it's really a kick-ball-change kick-ball-change you do a kick-ball-change and then you're going to walk forward. The difference is, is when you walk forward you're going to bend your knees and you're going to swivel to the inside and outside of your feet. So you do a kick-ball-change and then swivel your knees as you walk forward. So as we do the Shorty George it goes; kick-ball-change walk, walk, walk, walk. That's the Shorty George. And the thing about it is we try to keep our feet, and I have these nice arrows that we call boots on my feet right now, right, we try to keep them pointing forward so we're not swiveling this way. Right? We're keeping our feet forward and our knees are folding from side-to-side. So that's called a Shorty George. And again kick-ball-change walk, walk, walk, walk.
