This is J doing her version of the “Pop and Lock.” Competent dancers may think this is a simple move, but I know better. It’s not that easy to isolate the shoulder muscles and make the perfect little “pop.” (Tip from J: “Your head has to be stable.”) J’s dance moves are like her perfectly curled eyelashes: they did not come from me.
15 Feb 15 – journal entry
J was down for her rest period this afternoon. We were watching a Disney movie. I broke out into a little jig. (Koreans are the Irish of Asia, after all.)
M: J, am I a good dancer?
J: avoids eye contact
M: Am I?
M: Do you think I’m a good dancer?
J: I’m just trying to rest!
