Ballroom Dancer / Blogger Gets A Shock!
Here at Arthur Murray we read a number of blogs about ballroom dancing, usually starting with the latest news from our dance studios across the world and then trending off into whatever our Google Alerts lands in our inbox.
We found a very charming blog written by Daniel J. Hogan, a writer, wine drinker, collector of old typewriters, adventurer and man who wears a very stylish eyepatch. It seems Mr. Hogan stepped into his ballroom dance class, expecting the usual assortment of samba, swing, jazz and what have you- but was instead greeted with a (perfectly dance-able!) big band version of both Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit and Van Halen’s classic cut JUMP from 1984.
Read his (hilarious) reaction here: http://danieljhogan.com/home/2012/02/16/lets-dance-ii-the-dancening/
While there are a number of great Jazz versions of modern songs- we think Daneil’s melting-reaction might have been caused by the uncanny Paul Anka cover!
