Dancing in the street


Friday afternoon, I was hanging out in Chinatown, waiting for Brian and Spencer to arrive on the bus from New York for a fun-filled weekend visit, and I heard down the street the sounds of something happening. Hip hop music, people cheering, an MC talking... So I headed in that direction, and what I found was some kind of dance competition, right there on the steps of the old public library. B boys, b girls, breakers, hip hop dancers... Unfortunately, I only had my cell phone, not my real camera, and a cell phone really isn't the best way to capture how cool this was. But here are my best attempts. And at the end, thrown in just for fun, check out one of the coolest moments from Thursday's season premiere of "So You Think You can Dance."

No way! First of all, I want to know what kind of phone you have because those are GREAT pictures. And second...I can't believe they do that kind of thing at the library...even if it is the old one ;) Living in D.C. must be amazing!

Oh and I hope its okay that I've been reading your blog.....

seeing stuff like that right on the street makes me realize how uncool and boring I really am....that kid on SYTYCD is CRAZY. I could watch that all day
