I Like To Move It, Move It... ~ #MaxFreshMove

As a nibbling Rat, I say big No No to dance but yeah even my body swayed nicely when I saw the #MaxFreshMove video with Mr.Crumbles who calls himself a dancer, I did feel an instant freshness running inside my body and I gave him a big smile er.. a big ‘Colgate’ smile.

Now let’s read what Mr.Crumbles has to say about the video and the way he stayed fresh throughout these years with his cheesy white teeth. And wait, especially his secret on how he flattered people around with his groovy dance moves.

Mr. Crumbles says...

“I like to move it move it, I like to move it move it, You like to?”  Everyone moves their body and when you move your body in an organized flow to a rhythm then we call it Dance. I’ve been moving (dancing to be precise :P) since I was 6 years old. Dance always makes me fresh, may it be the moves in the early morning in front of the mirror brushing or may it be the late night walking with dance steps in the streets, it makes the moment special and stirs me up from toe to top.

We just look for a moment to move our hips and shake our legs. We all have incorporated dance in our habitual life to express our happiness and feel fresh. Marriages, ceremonies, birthday bashes, bachelor parties, family functions and festivals every time we feel happy we dance. Not only these occasions even our moment of loneliness in the lift with our favourite music in our ears we do make our moves to get a splash of freshness before stepping into the busy world. To me Music and Dance are the modern age yoga to keep our mind and soul fresh.

Dull moments occur every now and then in our daily life. These are inevitable and so is cheering ourselves up with freshness. I watched this video of Taazgi Ka Dhamaka by Colgate Max Fresh featuring one of my favourite dancing stars Allu Arjun and the Indian Pop girl Anushka Manchanda and I shared it with my group of friends for two reasons – the peppy number and the groovy moves.

First the music and the song impressed me a lot. But the highlight of this video is the dance moves by Allu Arjun. I’m listing down 3 of my favorite & best moves that will turn any dull moments to Taazgi ka Dhamaka with freshness. Let’s begin the countdown...

Step #1: The Entry - “Shake the shoulders and pump up”

The entry step is what gets the whole dance going and no doubt that Allu Arjun has pulled of a perfect entry after jumping of the balcony. This is a quick 8 count step but has so much fun and style. First 4 counts holding the coat and he emerges from between the ladies is a classic entry. And the next 4 counts of rolling his hands to his head and moving forward tells us how much energy and freshness the rest of the moves has.

Think of a slow walking marriage ceremony in the streets with traditional Carnatic Mela Thalaam and Naadhaswaram. I would bribe the music band to play a folkish number for few minutes and with this entry move will rip the slow moving crowd and emerge to the front with this step, everyone will follow me with their thumkas and kuthus. This is an advantage of being in a friend’s marriage, the fun is limitless. Perhaps my friend’s dad would disagree with the limitless fun part, but that’s not going to stop any of this. :P

Step #2: The Dhamaka - “Wrap the freshness and blow your heart out”

This is definitely a trademark step of the entire video song. “Taazgi ka jhatak matak dhamaka” is a quick and simple step. I like this one more because this is easy for everyone to catch up and when a huge group of dancers flap their hands and spread wide it will look stunning in sync.

This is super cool step. When choreographing a dance sequence to be performed on stage, I would want one move to be repeated and registered in the mind of audience so that everyone can join us. This is one such move, which you can take home after watching the performance. Not everyone get to learn dance, but these simple moves are the one’s which you try in your daily life to turn the dull moment to bright happiness. The hand moves are the exact way our hearts would feel when we are happy. The Dhamaka step is for every common man.

Step #3: The Hip-Hop - “Style statement”

This is my personal favorite. When he says “Okay everybody get down” we know that something sensational is going to follow and so it does. Allu Arjun once again displays his dancing skills with this 15 sec hip-hop moves. Every single pop and cut is very sharp. The way he pulls his hands and walks back to complete the sequence is a definite showstopper.

You play Antakshari? It’s a family favorite game even in this era of card and video games. When you are busy thinking of the next song to be sung, I will jump into the center and do this hip-hop move to display the style and make you realize what dance adds to the music and vice versa.

Behind the scene…

Hey Crumbles, you do showcase your style with some interesting moves. I am flattered too. He He. I agree you are a good dancer. *bows* After all this, I think we should dance someday. Teach me few easy moves. What say? But man, don’t blame me if I step on your feet or punch your face or hit your.. ahem ahem... ;-)

*helmet on, rest of the safety assured* okay Rat, let’s dance! :P
