Watch B-boy Pocket, of the Korean dance group Morning of Owl, as he demonstrates how much he’s practiced his gymnastics-fueled breakdancing moves in this advanced power combo tutorial. Also, it’s not a tutorial unless you’ve been breakdancing for quite a while. Be safe, and start with the basics.
When you’re looking to buy an instrument, you should really test it out to make sure it’s still in good condition. In this scene from the Blues Brothers (1980), Elwood and Jake get some help from music store owner Ray Charles to find out if an electric keyboard has any action left in it.
While the movie was written for mature audiences, this scene is a classic that has the kids up and dancing every time we watch it: Blues Brothers & Ray Charles - Shake a Tail Feather.
There are more movie clips in the archives.

Evolutionary Biologist and Ornithologist Kim Bostwick describes the dance moves and unique sounds of the forest-dwelling Red-capped Manakin. This Central and South America-based bird makes a snapping sound with its wings, and has a unique courtship move that has been compared to The Moonwalk.
Kim launched the Manakin-focused Singingwings.org, and is the Curator of Birds and Mammals in the Museum of Vertebrates at Cornell University, from where we’ve seen some amazing must-watch bird videos.
