What Kind of Dancer Are You?

Goldstein Auditorium was jam-packed last weekend for the annual DanceWorks showcase at Syracuse University.

The Hand Gesture Dancer

This dancer prefers to use his hands rather than his feet to express himself. Examples include Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” Madonna’s “Vogue,” and N*SYNC’s “Bye,Bye,Bye” routine.

The Jumping Dancer

“Jump up, Jump up, and get down!” For this dancer, the stage is like a trampoline. Songs that work perfectly with this dance routine include Franz Ferdinand’s “Take Me Out,” Soulja Boy’s “Crank That Soulja Boy,” The B-52’s “Love Shack,” and The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army.”
