Dance, dance revolution

Last month during Smokey Robinson’s concert at the San Joaquin County Fair in Stockton, the R&B legend was heralded on stage by two lovely dancers. They bopped and gyrated to his songs providing some visual movement to the show that Robinson himself lacked (he is 68 years old after all). They gave me the idea that maybe everybody should have a backup dancer or two to help them get out of some of life’s stickier situations.

Pulled over for a speeding? Perhaps a pair of jiggling dancers in the back seat may put enough of a smile on the officer’s face to let you off with just a warning.

Say you arrive at a posh gala event wearing the same outfit as an archrival. Boom-chaka, boom-chaka boom, the dancers come in doing the watusi or a samba by your side, and all eyes will be on you.

Just a few minutes before quitting time your boss comes in to tell you he wants you to work late. You have to get home to watch your kid’s ballet recital or soccer game. Distract your supervisor with the dancers doing some high-stepping, Rockette-type kicks, and you’re on your way home before he notices you’re gone.
