Hi, my name is Eric Wilkerson, but my friends call me Contemporary Eric. Today, I'm gonna teach you how to do a contemporary dance. There are 15 moves that are in every contemporary dance. You can put these steps together in any sequence to songs such as Adele, Ani DiFranco, and Frou Frou, and you too can be a contemporary choreographer.
嗨，我的名字是Eric Wilkerson，但我的朋友們叫我現代艾瑞克。今天，我要教你怎麼跳現代舞。每套現代舞中有十五個動作。你可以將這些舞步組合以任何順序組合在一起，配上像是Adele、Ani DiFranco(美國歌手)、和Frou Frou(英國樂團)的歌，你也可以成為一名現代舞編舞者。
Helping me today is my assistant, Bich. Say hello, Bich.
Okay. Now let's get started on learning the 15 steps.
1. The Knee
Where you have a very serious conversation with your knee, and then you put it down because you realize you shouldn't be doing that.
2. The Pants
Where you pull your pants down, and then you pull them back up really quickly because people are noticing.
3. The Zombie with Emotion
4. The "I Just Came out of a Well"
Where you use sign language to tell someone that you just come out of a well and you need help.
5. The Brat
Where you act like you're kicking a fire hydrant and then you check to see if anyone notices that you're mad.
6. The Blind Man
Where you pretend you're a blind man playing volleyball, but you don't know when the volleyball is coming.
7. The Pewp
Where you squat down because you have to poop, but then when it comes it surprises you, so you have to really cool afterward.
8. The Elbowless Hug
Where you reach out to give someone a hug as though you don't have any elbows.
9. The Bounce
Where you bounce on your heels to keep yourself from crying because you're having a really really bad day.
10. The "This is Your Head"
11. The "Seriously Get Your Damn Hands off of Me"
As you can see.
10. The Peekaboo
Where you get the audience a quick look at your "Whoala ha!"
13. The Leg
Where you run and jump into a split leap, but then you realize that your right leg was amputated from the knee down, so as you fall, you reach out to the audience for help. And when you get up, you realize that you need to stretch your hip flexor really really bad.
14. The Magnet
Where all of a sudden your underwear becomes the magnet for someone's chest.
14. The "Why is Your Head in My Hand?"
As you can see.
And every number always finishes with one other move. It's called—Go to Sleep, Bich.
Now watch as me and my assistant put these moves together to make a routine. We'll put this routine to music and add emotion.
And that's how you do contemporary dance. You can download this song from iTunes in the link below, then you can do your own contemporary dance using the contemporary dance steps. Post links to your video in the comment below, and I'll give feedback.
Thanks for watching. Love, Contemporary Eric.
Can I get up?
