The Harlem shake is an upper body dance style which involves shaking of the upper chest and shoulders. The dance move “Harlem shake” was introduced in 1981 by one resident of Harlem named “Al B”, and so this dance form called as the “Albee” in older days. “Harlem shake” came in the mainstream of dance styles in 2001, when famous G. Dep performed the Harlem shake in his music video “Let’s Get It”. It has become a very famous dance sensation, that’s far-reaching on top of the nation, at 30,000 feet. Many videos of “Harlem shake” were recorded on board planes, but the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) describes it as one instance of high-altitude dancing.
In the recent times, Colorado College’s ultimate frisbee team has become the part of this high altitude dance style by recording their video; when they were aboard on the Frontier Airlines Flight 157. If you will see this video, you will definitely enjoy this high altitude fun. But sadly, it is under the investigation of FAA. Students of the Colorado College’s ultimate frisbee team said that before trying out this dance, they have took approval of the flight crew and get the permission to use the public address system for inviting passengers to join them. Teammate Gavin Nachbar said that, “video is a hand-held camera, so it’s shaking and looking a lot worse than it is. So, we never felt unsafe the whole time, and we hope the FAA sees it the same way, and we assume that they will.” Continue reading »
