In this crazy time we are in, what the world needs is a little more fun and laughter. Even if it has to be through a screen while we all social distance. So obviously the next in the brother-sister dance duos series had to be something fun which leads us too…
Sharpay and Ryan Evans “Bop to the Top!” from High School Musical
I have always loved the High School Musical series ever since it came out and once my brother was old enough to pay attention, I made him watch it too. Whatever I did he had to do too, even if he didn’t want to. That is just the way it works.
The older I get the more I realize how great all of Sharpay and Ryan’s songs are and naturally I had to choose one of them to bring back the dancing series. I used to do karaoke to all of the High School Musical songs when I was little and me and my friends would dance around trying to reenact the scenes.
Plus when the dance-alongs played on Disney Channel I would record them so I could spend hours practicing all of the dances until I could follow along while the movie played. So basically I have been preparing for this moment my whole life.
It took us about 3 days to learn all of the moves and another day to add the element of the ‘ladder’ and wear ‘costumes.’ I am really surprised we got it down so quickly! I guess that is what happens when you are having fun. The hardest part of this dance was trying to get the timing when all of the spinning gets really fast. Not sure we would win an award for our actual dancing but for two people who don’t dance I think we rocked it.
Another great thing about doing this number is that it was the perfect excuse to pull out my senior year prom dress. I was going to wear my prom heels except I was sure trying to dance in those would have ended badly.
My brother is a great sport for playing along on my craziness, especially by actually dressing up for it, and dealing with me making him drill the number over and over.
