Dance, Dance, Dance!

Words cannot explain HOW COOL these prints from Niege Borges Alves are!

From Naploean Dynamite's epic floor-poppin moves to Jamiroquai's "Canned Heat"; Gene Kelly's non-slip moves in "Singing In the Rain" and John Travolta and Uma Thurman slinky twisting to Chuck Berry's "You Never Can Tell" in Pulp Fiction - Alves‘ has immortalised some of the most iconic choreography in pop culture via a poster series entitled ‘Dancing Plague of 1518.’

The posters are inspired by the dance mania which swept across the French town of Stransbourg in 1518, when people spontaneously went out into the streets and busted a move - and then continued to bust a move for almost a month non-stop, with some folk even dying from exhaustion. 

My fav is the homage to Olive's "Super Freak" dance moves in the film "Little Miss Sunshine" (below). Get yours now from Society6.
