WATCH: This is what “Boogie-down” really means

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 11/25/16

Keep your eyes on their feet -- if you can!

Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! (Psalm 150:4)

Here’s a scene from the “Rock That Swing Festival 2016” earlier this year at the Deutsches Theater in Berlin. Hard to believe it wasn’t filmed on fast speed, but no — this is really how fast these dancers’ feet move when they’re doing a boogie. The next festival will be in February in Munich.
