Birthday Special: 5 signature moves of Michael Jackson we’ll never forget
It will not be incorrect to say that there will be no musical legend like Michael Jackson ever again. The King of Pop would have been 58 years old today, had he been alive. It was not just his music that made him the icon that he is for millions, his unique dance moves are also an inspiration to many around the world. Here are five signature moves of MJ that will stay with us forever.
The moonwalk: He first showed off his signature moonwalk in 1983 and we were mesmerized! And then, he did it everywhere, driving fans crazy. MJ’s moonwalk is one dance step that is every dancer’s dream to be able to get it right.
The anti-gravity lean: This one left us spellbound! MJ’s anti-gravity lean looked nothing less than a magical trick, and it was only recently that we discovered that it was his patented shoes which were locked to the floor that allowed him to bend so much without falling.
The toe stand: Here is another dance move that we can’t get enough of! MJ’s freeze toe stand is difficult to do, but the King of Pop did it with ease everytime he took to the stage for his world tours and left us captivated.
Pelvic thrust: Any time an MJ song plays anywhere, you will see people holding their crotch and trying to do MJ’s pelvic thrust. This is one invention and signature step of MJ that made him a dance icon.
The white shirt blowing in the wind: MJ did not just work on his music and dance, but also paid a lot of attention to the overall experience of a music video or a stage show, thus giving birth to the iconic scene where his white shirt blows in the wind. No MJ tribute is complete without people impersonating this particular scene!
