Dance, by definition, is movement – right? Think again. Famous YouTube vlogger and self-described non-dancer Ryan Higa has proved that idea wrong, thanks to the magic of stop-motion video.
Admitting that he can’t dance, Higa acted on a follower’s seemingly impossible request that he dance without moving. That, he thought, he might be good at.
A week and over four thousand pictures later, Higa released, “Dancing Without Moving,” a stop-motion dance video that features him walking on water and ice-skating on banana peels – a major step up from his go-to head bobbing and basic step-cross moves. Higa accomplished the feat with a crew of friends dressed in black skin suits – and a choreographic team that included Brittnie Aguilar, Green Gaskell, and Dominic “D-Trix” Sandoval. Frame by frame, they put together a video that is comical yet truly impressive.
