On Tecktonik

So Nath took the time to show me what Tecktonic was all about.  Apparently this dance was really big last year and was supposed to take over Japan, Canada and the U.S.  Well, the last dance craze I’ve heard of was DDR, so my guess is that Tecktonik flopped on its way across the Atlantic.  Still, one year after those crazy moves exploded in France, Nath and I spent quite a bit of time watching how-to videos on YouTube such as this one

Honestly, the videos we watched looked nothing like Nath’s moves at the Fête. And true, we were definitely one year too late into this, but I blame not knowing how to do the Tecktonic  on me not being French and Nath blames it on not having time to watch the Tecktonik tutorials on YouTube.

However, I decided to keep my mouth shut, and we practiced a bit.  She complimented me on my arm-leg coordination.  I watched myself do it in front of the mirror and thought I did pretty good, but upon demonstrating it to Diesel I was told I looked “ridiculous” and to “stop doing it.”  Whatever.
