Random Midday Hotness: Karen Cheng Getting It In.

What’s the old saw? Dance like no one is watching.

Karen Cheng went all the way in the other direction with it: dance like everybody finna see you.

Over the course of a year, Cheng taught herself how to dance (and became your new ideal to aspire to).

Here’s my secret: I practiced everywhere. At bus stops. In line at the grocery store. At work — Using the mouse with my right hand and practicing drills with my left hand. You don’t have to train hardcore for years to become a dancer. But you must be willing to practice and you better be hungry.

Say word.

  • This is awesome. And, I listen to Justice’s “D.A.N.C.E.” every other day, as I strut down Midtown sidewalks, so she immediately won me over.lol

  • I love this. This was a shot of inspiration to me today. Thank you!!

  • The best part of this is watching her face change from the beginning to the end. She goes from counting it out to feeling it.

    • Right? Its not that she’s getting better, it’s that she’s letting go.
