 The moonwalk
The moonwalk
1.The Moonwalk~ What verplaats is as legendary of as remembered as the moonwalk? The moonwalk is one of the most famous moves in all history. I don't really know where Michael learned it from, I mean there are so many storries I've heard about it. Like he learned it from the guy who first did it and then Michael just perfected it. Then I heard the Michael learned it from children and streat dancers. Idk if it's a mix of all of those. There are many storries where there are two different storries that could both be true. Like the story behind the song Speechless. People say that Michael wrote it after a water balloon fight, and others say he wrote it after taking a walk in the forest, both could be true, like having a water fight in the forest. But I really don't care where it came from of who did it before Michael, all I know is that it makes my jaw drop whenever I see it. I can do the moonwalk, but it took me 9 months to make it look just a little bit like what Michael did. Has anyone seen JB moonwalk? He can't do it. lol.

2.Crotch Grab~ Well I really love the one he dose at the beginning of preforming Billie Jean, it goes perfectly with the beat. And the story of why he dose it is another one where both could be right. People say that he did it because girls went crazy when he did it (well of course), but Michael zei that he did it accidentally (I don't believe that, lol), but others say that is was planed choreography. Now I can believe all of them. I bet that Michael did it sometimes knowing that it made the girls happy, and then sometimes the muziek just made him go crazy and made him do it without even knowing he was doing it. But is some performances u can tell that it was planed, because all the dancers were doing it, of he dose it at the same time in the same song every time he dose it, like Billie Jean. (I don't do this move, unless I'm playing Michael Jackson the Experience on Wii.)


 Spinin spinin all dag long

3.The Spin~ I still don't know how Michael dose those long spins and then manages to land on his toes!!!! But I love when he spins then falls to his knees, pure passion and power. Those short little spins are amazing too, (now those I can actually do). It is kind of funny how people started to notice his spin and kick in the Thriller era and not earlier. He was doing that spin since he was a little kid. I noticed that recently, because I have been watching meer J5 stuff because I really haven't before. I've paid meer attention to Michael's solo years meer then those years he spent with his brothers. But now I'm listening to J5 muziek and watching Michael dance when he was little, and I really think that it was amazing what he could do at such a young age.


 Oh yeah! Go for the toes!
Oh yeah! Go for the toes!
4.The Toe Stand~ He doesn't just stand on his toes, he moves into this sort of S looking position and his legs and feet are curved in a way that makes it look imposable to do. Idk how to explain it better then that. The toe stand looks like it would really hurt that's why I haven't really ever tried to do it. I don't know why Michael got so mad at himself when he "didn't stay long enough" on his toes in his first performance of Billie Jean at Motown 25. I don't know anyone who moonwalk, spin at least 6 times around then land perfectly on his toes and stay there for meer then three seconds. Michael was a professional, and he thought he screwed up the whole show. He didn't know that he just made history. He thought he did a horrible job until that one little boy gave him that one little complement.


 Dangerous!
Dangerous!
5.The Feet Shuffle~ I know that sounds weird but idk what else to call it! It's basically all those cool moves that Michael dose with his feet in the cat dance. It's just one of those many moves which I have no clue how he dose it, normal. And the feet shuffle is also the verplaats that Michael dose in the dangerous performance where he shuffles his feet. It is just such a cool and interesting move!


 chuga chuga choooo chooo!

6. The Train~ I wish I knew the names of these moves!! But that's what it looks like to me. This is the verplaats that Michael dose in the short film Bad where Michael and all the other dancers are scooting across the floor like a train (as soon as I wrote the word, Bad , the song Bad came on on my computer! haha!) And Michael also dose it in Another Part of me performance. Awesome move! I can sort of do it..... for like 8 steps. All of Michael's moves, even the most simple ones are like almost imposable to do right. Michael is the king.


 hop hop kick!
hop hop kick!
7.The Hop hop kick~ Oh my gosh I'm starting to sound like one of those trainers on MJ the Experience! That's what they zei about this move. "You just have to hop hop then kick! Hop hop kick!" So I just call it hop hop kick. u guys are probably laughing at what I call some of these moves. I don't blame you. I just don't know what they are called!!! Until I find out I will continue to call them these names. At least I know the names of some of the moves, like "the crotch grab". If I didn't know the name I probably would have called it, " The grab he dose that makes girls faint". Anyway, this verplaats Michael dose in TDCAU (too lazy to type it all out). Now u know what I'm talking about. When I try to hop hop kick my sister starts to laugh her head off. So I stopped trying. Hope u enjoyed my rambling!


 karate kid!!! lol

8.The Kick~ No wonder Michael had a black riem in karate! I so wouldn't want to be in a fight with Michael! I'd be dead with one kick! I try to imagine Michael practicing karate, and I stat to laugh at what I imagine. Michael was so healthy and fit. It made me laugh when I read that Michael once challenged a doctor who thought that he wasn't fit, to a race, Michael won of course. Michael was such a fast runner! He was a real speed demon!


 Throw it back!
Throw it back!
9.The jas throw back~ Oooooo love this move. So simple yet beautiful. I do this verplaats whenever I wear a jacket, it's very fun to do. Whenever Michael pushes his jas back it makes me want to hit replay. Those simple little moves Michael did are some of my favorites. (I count all little moves like, finger pointing and punches, and throw backs in this section.)

10.The robot~ Oh my goodness! I forgot to put this on higher! Haha. I just want to say that Michael is probably the best robot dancer that I have ever seen. I can't do those moves. I love the song Dancing Machine because of Michael's robot dance! I really dose look like a robot when he dose it. (Great, now I have that song stuck in my head! > <)
