Moment of Awesomeness: 5/26/11

Self-expression is a critical need of all human beings. Dance is one of the ways some people express themselves, and videos like this (that I saw for the first time about a year and a half ago) just leave me speechless.

While I don’t think there’s a “right” way to do it, there are some less-than-ideal ways to be seen and heard. Some people turn to destructive behaviors, drugs, vandalism, etc, as a way to have their presence felt by others. While I don’t condone those choices, I do 10000% support people finding creative and positive ways to share who they TRULY ARE with the world. Especially when it’s by doing something this beautiful.

The men below are doing a style of dance that was invented in Oakland, California known as TURF dancing (which stands for “Taking Up Room on the Floor”). It is so cool for me to watch this!

This video makes me happy. I hope you enjoy it, too.
