Couple assigned the Macarena in dance comp becomes hilarious romp

June 8th, 2021

BudaFest is a popular West Coast Swing dance event. It is held in Budapest annually, every early January. This is participated by several amazing dancers who are quite incredible at what they do. Whether the dance is rehearsed in advance or impromptu, for these participants, it’s no sweat.

During the BudaFest 2020, the host, TJ Bednash, introduced a game in the Invitational Jack & Jill round. The mechanic was to choose a theme, and the dancing duo would get three songs. After each song, they could decide if they would “stick or twist,” which means “dance to the song or change it.” All well and good if they were familiar with the music. They could only change the music for two chances. If still not satisfied, they must take the third song.

What more, in this round, one would have to pick his or her dance partner. Unfortunately, it was not by pinpointing whoever one wanted to dance with. The guy/lady would have to draw it first, and the dance partner’s name would be revealed on a piece of paper.

When it was Jordan Frisbee’s turn, he had to choose his pair, and he picked the amazing Emeline Rochefeuille. Who thought the two would have a fantastic chemistry on the dance floor?

Jordan Frisbee is a famous dancer of West Coast Swing, and he has won several competitions. He is seriously impressive for winning the West Coast Swing World Champion 11 times. How incredible is that?

Emeline Rochefeuille is a professional dancer and is based in Berlin. Also, she’s passionate and astonishing at what she does. She works as a dance instructor.

Now, the pair had to pick their song. They refused to go for the first one. But after hearing the second one, the crowd wanted them to stick to it, and they agreed.

Their incredible impromptu performance

The duo would have to dance to “Macarena,” a really iconic song from the ’90s by Los Del Rio. Despite the dance being an unrehearsed one, the two gave an absolutely stunning interpretation on the dance floor. They brought the house down with their unique moves and superb dancing skills.

Their energy was contagious, and they were heating up the dance floor.

The audience went wild to the pair’s excellent dance number with a mix of hilarity. Of course, the two didn’t ignore the iconic steps of Macarena.

Since most people were familiar with it, the crowd expected them to incorporate such popular moves into their routine. Well, the audience was pleased to see them perform it.

Even if Jordan and Emeline were dancing the swing, they were still able to combine the iconic steps, which wowed the crowd.

Emeline flawlessly and professionally injected the arm movements and shook her body to the chorus of the “Macarena.” Each time she did it, the crowd was left amazed by her spontaneity and slick dancing.

Of course, Jordan did a wonderful job. He amazingly guided Emeline so their performance would look smooth. There was a part where he made Emeline take multiple spins, which was quite stunning to see.
