Name: Beatin Hearts
Occupation: Dance Crew
Known for: If you’ve never heard of them before, Beatin Hearts is an established troupe of Japanese hip hop dancers composed of only growned-up ladies (the current roster boasts members between the age of 44 and 56). I had the pleasure of witnessing one of their exuberant performances over the weekend at the 2009 World Hip Hop Dance Championship–and even though I had heard tales, I wasn’t really prepared for such an awesome sight (After all, my mom dances like one of those battery-operated Christmas Santas, and seeing an Usher record on sale at Costco is probably the closest she’ll ever get to hip hop).
Let me tell you, these mommies know how to sh-sh-shake their shit. And they absolutely love it (after the group walked away from this performance, they proceeded to convene backstage and weep with joy), which is probably the most amazian thing of all.
I could yammer on about this all day, but you really need to see it to believe it:
Once again, these ladies are between the ages of 44 and 56! Big-time MILTHs (Mothers I’d Like To Hug)!
