Like most of you, I’m going to be at home for a while, so my new things won’t be very big in scale, but I will try and keep them fun!
I’d wager that today’s new thing – learning to Moonwalk – most of us have had a go at before. I’d be lying if I said I haven’t tried to bust one out on the dancefloor before! Whilst my previous attempts have always been in the heat of the moment, today I was going to try and learn how to do it for real.
For this, I watched a couple of Youtube videos and tried a few different techniques, but the one that seemed to easiest to follow was here.
Although Michael Jackson made it look like such a smooth movement, for someone who has two left feet, it was really hard! I tried so many times and it constantly felt like I was just clumsily, walking backwards. However, when I looked back at the videos, I found some first steps of a Moonwalk and tried again…
Unfortunately, that was the closest I got. I think with a bit of practice I’ll be able to do it properly, so I’ll keep going until I’m ready to show off my dance moves for the next opportunity!
