JAMES BROWN DANCE LESSONS


It's Saturday night, and you can't dance. Your moves are tired. You need a crash course in COOL. Unless you want to stand on the sidelines and watch life pass you by, you need to get busy. "Acting" cool doesn't work, and saying you don't dance only convinces people you're an uptight wuss and no fun at all, but dragging out those ancient ballroom moves from your wedding (the disco thing, with that unconvincing lip-bite) is a big mistake that will send folks screaming for the exits. Sure, you can stay at home and mope, but that's a lousy option.

Fortunately, you're in luck. At great expense, we've brought James Brown back to give you a dance lesson. You'll never be as cool as Soul Brother Number One, but having James Brown as your personal trainer can only help your odds. Don't thank me, thank JB. Now get busy!

James was always a favorite, loved watching him dance and perform. He gets classic of course, along with Aretha and Cab Calloway, in The Blues Brothers.

James Brown was great in the Blues Brothers! If you ever get a chance to watch the T.A.M.I show from 1964, by all means watch it! It has a great cast of top acts, but James steals the show singing and dancing all over the place. The Stones were also on the show, and later on Keith Richards says following James Brown and his Fabulous Flames was the biggest mistake of their career!
