The harlem shake

When I looked in you tube I saw a video. When I saw it I was amazed that 1 person can make other people dance. I was more surprised when I found out the person dancing was a collage student! I just know they have a lot of confidence. It was so funny my friend took a video of all my friends dancing the harlem shake. I wasn’t shy really because I’ve did this before so I danced the harlem shake. It was the best dance I’ve done in years. I felt like I was five. Actually, I always felt like I was five every time I danced.

Year 5 Harlem Shake – World Book Day

Yesterday, we were discussing music and how we listen to it today. Youtube was mentioned, which is how lots of us hear new songs. One thing that happens today is ‘going viral’, which means songs or videos get viewed by millions of people in a short space of time.

One recent example of this is the Harlem Shake. Football teams, armies, colleges and schools have now done their own versions, and yesterday we watched Davyhulme Primary School do theirs. Maria suggested recording one of our own for World Book Day – so here it is!
