While not a dance video per se, this music video for the song “Bizness” from the group tUnE-yArDs has some great dance moments.
My favorite scenes are in the first couple minutes, when the video features a group of kids sitting at desks in a classroom setting. The kids look bored and frustrated, then break free from their seating arrangements–leaping and playing about the room. To me, these scenes really capture the joy and authenticity of childhood.
While the children are doing staged movements, their gestures come across as entirely natural. I can’t help but wish I could have been a fly on the wall while they were making this film, just to see how the children were guided through the creative process.
Director Mimi Cave is a gifted choreographer and dancer in her own right, and she seems to bring her dance sensibility to all of her projects. You can check out more of her work at Little Cave of Wonders.
