Aris Allen Men's Black Dance Loafers with Special Heel
MICHAEL JACKSON'S SIGNATURE SPINS: A short primer...How, how, how did Michael spin like that from a normal prep? It's like those powerful spins came out of nowhere!Jeff Booth, choreographer, instructor and vintage dance deconstruction fanatic really needs to be credited with breaking this down for us.It looks like Jackson just crosses one foot over the other during the prep and then magically spins 7+ times. That’s normally almost impossible without leading up to it with a bunch of motion, posture, and limb positioning that gives away what is about to happen especially in slick shoes. The secret is that rubber heel! Part way through the seemingly normal spin the rubber part of the heel naturally comes in contact with the floor creating a moment of solid connection to the floor that he used for a hidden, mid-spin burst of torque.Use caution when trying this! Ask a professional for help - really. This is not a full break-down of the posture, arms, footwork etc.The torque you get from this may take you by surprise and like any other dance move can get you seriously injured if you don't know what you're doing.
