Sometimes You Just Have to Dance

This is totally off topic for me, but I had to share this video...I first saw it at Laural Out Loud. (Do you read her? She cracks me up.)

For some reason this video brought joyful tears to my eyes. I know. I'm a freak.

That is awesome! I love it!

Betsy said...

Wow! That sure did make me smile!

Courtney said...

I guess I'm a freak too, Kimba. You know what it made me think of? It's like a little picture of heaven. One day, there will be people from every tribe, nation and language dancing with joy in the presence of Jesus before God's throne. THAT'S what made me cry. Wish I was there right now.

Allison said...

That was pretty cool and that he went to some places where life isn't so good yet still had fun and danced the the locals! Thanks for sharing.

I need to get in with Stride! That was super. We dance all the time at my house... a little too much musical theatre in the veins:) My kids think I'm a nut but you're right, sometimes you just gotta dance. Laughter is great medicine.

I'm with Courtney... it's wonderful to see so many nationalities, cultures, and people unite... aren't we all brothers and sisters? Thanks for the feel good flick!

Its amazing how even though they may not have been able to communicate to eachother they BOTH knew the language of dane...this totally made me giggle out loud & I teared up too! Gotta go get my groove on~ =]

Kimba, that was amazing. I have to disagree, this was not off topic especially with Thanksgiving a day away. We sometimes get so caught up in the holidays and making everything perfect, that we take the little things for granted. How the simple act of dancing can bring together different cultures, regardless of religion or language. It also brought tears to my eyes. Thanks for sharing and..."dance like no one's watching."

Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

In my family if something is wrong we dance. If something is good we dance. If we are bored we dance.

Great video!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Emily@remodelingthislife said...

I too saw this about a month ago, and I cried a little too! Totally not a freak! hehe I really loved seeing him here in Austin, that was really cool!! :)

ursula said...

agreed....at first I thought, "oh, here's a show-off who is going to brag about ALL of the places in the world he has danced - big deal!" - but as the crowds started to join him, the message of the video was clear - that we are all one world - okay, I cried like a baby......

Gina said...

I love it, totally agree with
Courtney said-it's amazing how one simple act can bring people together. Makes me think of the "free hugs" video I've seen. (I posted it on my blog if you haven't seen it.)

Thanks for sharing, it brought a smile to my face.

Caren said...

That was cool. I especially liked the ones with the children. I've got to check that guy out. What a fantastic idea.
