Do you love dancing?

For some people, dancing is life! Some kids would already show great talent in dancing at a very young age, and it’s safe to say even if we don’t have the innate talent for dancing, we all appreciate it.

According to history:

“It has been proposed that before the invention of written languages, dance was an important part of the oral and performance methods of passing stories down from generation to generation.”

Dancing has been a part of our history and will still be a part of it in the coming decades.

Do you still recall some of the most popular dances when you were young?

To pay tribute to the evolution of dance, Ricardo Walker’s Crew created a video two years that features dances from 1950 to 2019.

Their video, of course, went viral!

Once you see their video, you would definitely want to watch it again and again – that’s how good it is.

Ricardo Walker, a Brazilian-born artist, started dancing at the age of around 7 or 8. According to him, his inspiration is non-other than the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

He started dancing and impersonating him, and soon, he studied other dance styles as well. Now, he is a professional dancer.

No wonder he and his crew are so good when it comes to dancing, and their choreography is out of this world!
