  1. Great video. It took a lot of work to sync those movements to the music.

    Lagniappe is a Cajun thing, you know.

      1. Yes, I know what I believe it means. A little gift a store owner gives a customer. Usually LA or East TX. Cajun French.

                1. Carole: I suppose pilón would have been more appropriate here, but there are two reasons I did not use it. One, I did not think of it. Two, I like the sound and look of lagniappe.

  2. Felipe,

    Glad I took the time to watch the video. Excellent. Some very talented people in those old movies.

  3. How nice it is to see people actually dancing instead of appearing to be in a constant epileptic seizure while either flaying their arms or spinning on their butt on the floor.

    I am too old to appreciate the art of whatever they do now, with the arm jerks and spinning around like a top. I went to a show back a while in Northern California where they actually devoted 15 minutes or so to this person who did this weird gyrations on the stage. Weird, or now the butt moving around like a target for some mating animal. Oh, send me back to the old days.

    Great clips of great performers who actually had talent.

    1. Tancho: That butt spinning is called break dancing. You’re just behind the times, old boy. I don’t think badly of it though I’m not a fan. It’s just a different style. It does require talent and practice.

      1. Break dancing can’t be done with two people arm to arm because they would stop spinning, just an observation.
