Dancing is an astounding art. It is amazing how some people have such deft control of their bodies. While some folks are lucky enough to use their legs to make it up a flight of stairs without falling, other people can whip their legs around in a flurry of movement.
This seems even more incredible when numerous people are able to dance with such control in a large group. That is exactly what happened on a talent show broadcast in the United Kingdom.
In the video below, an Irish dance troupe named Prodijig take the stage for a televised dance competition. Dressed in futuristic black and blue jumpsuits, five men and two women show their Irish dance skills. All of the dancers keep their backs perfectly erect as their feet tap out an amazing rhythm. The music the dancing troupe selected has a catchy techno beat.
The electronic sounding music makes the dancers seem almost inhuman. It’s as if their dancing steps are so perfect they must be machines performing and not actual people. However, the smiles on their faces betray that these performers are people just like you and me. The difference is that the members of Prodijig have dedicated their live to perfecting their type of dancing. You can observe the reactions of the judges. It’s clear that they can tell they have a winning group on their hands.
The routine is incredible to watch. First, it is downright amazing and beautiful. More importantly, it’s inspiring to see exactly what the human body can do.
