The Jerusalema dance challenge

Watching this cheered me up.

Jerusalema is a gospel-influenced song in the Zulu language produced by South African producer master KG and performed by the vocalist Nomcebo in 2019.

In February, 2020, Frndómenos do Semla, a dance group in Angola, recorded themselves dancing to the song while eating and not dropping their plates.

Since then the Jerusalema dance has gone viral.  People all over the world are doing it.  (But I only learned of it day before yesterday.)

Here are the Garda (Irish police) doing the dance.

Here is the dance in Times Square.

And around the world.

And more around the world.

There’s joy in the world despite everything.

    The footworks look simple enough but actually takes a lot of swag to do properly. Please post a video of you taking on this challenge.
