Handspinning for #throwbackthursday

Showing off for #throwbackthursday handspinning on the set of Breakin’ 2 Electric Boogaloo in 1985.. or 86. Due my lack of blogging skills, I didn’t know how to upload the YouTube video. That’s me spinning at 1:08 wearing the pink, yes, pink shirt and black bandanna. After doing this scene over 15 times, I almost barfed in the scene. It was a fantastic experience for me at 17. I got paid to dance! The director didn’t let me do my best moves, but who cares? I got paid to dance!  When the film was released, a dozen friends went with me to the theater to catch my 5 seconds of glory on film. How fun is that? I’m showing this to my son and friends right now. Good laughs.
