Dapper Dancers – Feet in the Air

feet in the air - dapper dancers

Two tuxedoed men seem to shatter the laws of physics, forcing time to slow and speed.  Their bodies curve in ways that would stagger Newton.  Theirs is a playful, gravity-defying dancing duet.

Virgil Gadson bounces and bends as though he has replaced every bone with licorice sticks. And, Julius Chisolm slips across the floor more smoothly than the slide on a trombone.

Improvisation is what they call “their natural science”.  Chisholm says, “Music takes control of me. I’ll be chilling, and a beat will come on. I understand life when I’m dancing.”
