Pussy Cat Dolls Style of Dance


Ahh..you have to love pop culture.

Last week, I recieved an unexpected call from a dance studio asking me to teach a bachelorette group the 'Pussycat Dolls' style of dance. I was partially flattered as the music video of "Buttons" and "Don't Cha" flashed thorugh my mind. I politely accepted and reluctantly pulled out my 'Dolls Domination' CD.

As much as I am not a huge fan of strictly booty or chest popping, I've got to give it the ladies of the Pussy Cat Dolls for the amount of fame they have recieved since Robin Antin (original founder) began practicing in actress Christina Applegate's garage back in the early 90's. Who knew that almost 2 decades later, females all over the world would desire to learn their particular style of dance? It's wild that a number of dance studios are capitlizing off "Pussy Cat Dolls" dance classes. They even offer several levels. Different levels of a booty pop? OH MY.

Teaching the bachelorette party was a breeze as I naturally swayed, whipped my hair around, and YES booty and chest popped (only for a small segment of course). The bride-to-be danced as though she had put the music videos on repeat on her television. Luckily, I was able to get the rest of the party to reveal their cat-like expressions as they easily laughed and poked fun at themselves throughout the class.

One simple style of style can dominant pop culture so greatly that it becomes the driving force of people's movement. Just look at the Jabbawockez or Tommy the Clown. Like fire, it catches on rapidly but who's to say that it won't burn out just as quicly? Time will only tell if it's here to stay?

Although (I have to admit), I'm not estatic of every female throwing on a pair of shorts moving like a Pussy Cat Doll and announcing themselves as a trained "dancer", the style is undoubtfullly a significant part of history and a breed all on it's own. However please understand that it takes more than imitating 5 female pop stars to ever be called a pro dancer. And yes, even if you've completed 10 levels of the Pussy Cat Doll class ladies.
